"A Wyoming lawmaker's remarks about guns, drugs and blacks created an uproar in the U.S. House on Wednesday as critics decried her comments as offensive."

"During debate on a bill that would block many lawsuits against gun dealers and gun manufacturers, Wyoming Republican Barbara Cubin referred to an amendment that would have allowed lawsuits when guns were sold to drug users."

" 'Does that mean if you go into a black community you can't sell any guns to any black person?' said Cubin, a fifth-term conservative with a pro-gun voting record."

"The mood of Iraqi civilians was briefly muted in Baghdad Wednesday as Chin climbed up and covered Saddam's face with an American flag."

"The crowd's loud cheers faded, and in less than a minute the Stars and Stripes was removed from the massive statue and replaced with Iraq's black, white and red flag."

"Chin's move touched a sensitive chord among Arabs and irritated U.S. military leaders who want Iraqis to view U.S. forces as liberators, not occupiers."

"Walking through New York's Penn Station the other day, I looked at the young men in military fatigues wielding machine guns and was struck by the thought that this was something I never thought I'd see in America. In Russia, where I lived until the age of 16, military men in city streets were a common sight. Later on, as an American vacationing in Europe several times in the 1980s and 1990s, I noticed the everyday precautions against terrorism—the military patrols, the warnings that any package or bag left unattended in a public place would be destroyed, the metal lids screwed on trash cans—and reflected on how different life was in the United States. That's one reflection we no longer have the luxury to make. Have we changed so much that we have lost ourselves?"

"The House yesterday voted to pre-empt the lawsuits that dozens of cities have filed against gun manufacturers and dealers to recover costs associated with gun crimes."

"The bill, approved 285-140, would head off the series of lawsuits already filed against the gun industry and prohibit new ones.

"A letter in the March 31 edition is so absurd I simply had to respond. The writer mused, 'War has never solved one problem, moral or otherwise.' Tell that to the French, who'd be speaking German today if the Allies hadn't warred against Hitler & Company and saved them. Have you not seen the picture of Adolf Hitler standing victorious in front of the Eiffel Tower? Problem solved, by war, and may Hitler & Company rot in hell."
