It has been sixty-seven days since a young, unarmed mother was gunned down and her child severely wounded by a Lima SWAT shooter.

Ron Paul, the only clear-headed statesman in the US Congress, was also the only vote against a House resolution strongly defending how Israel has countered Palastinian rocket attacks by smart-bombing the Gaza Strip.
