Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Dr. Hager's Family Values
Wow - this is an explosive article.

It claims that Dr. W. David Hager, a prominent obstetrician-gynecologist and Bush Administration appointee to the Advisory Committee for Reproductive Health Drugs in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and who is a fundamentalist right wing Christian, and a staunch opponent to abortion, also physically abused and tormented his wife for years. Read it - it's chilling.

UPDATE: Wonkette does a scathing update and article roundup on this topic that I originally posted a few days ago. I realize that 'Newsweak's' deadly blunder is the news of the day, and is far more serious, but this just makes me shake my head.

    Have you seen anything that indicates that Newsweek's reporting was ever incorrect? I've not been following it super-closely, but their retraction definitely set off my bullshit meter... it sounds a lot more like they were contacted by a large advertiser, or possibly someone from the White House...

    I don't think I have enough cnospiracy theory in me to believe that, and besides, they can't really take it back. Also, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that using the Quoran to intimidate and or mentally "torture" prisoners has been done whether Newsweek reported it first or not.
