The truth may set you free, but finding the truth is like playing tennis. You don't get a hint of it until you've returned the volley about three or four times. The mainstream media counts on the masses never returning what's served up. Journalism today has become a caricature not unlike what Robert Lynd describes by saying "Research without an actively selective point of view is like the ditty bag of an idiot, filled with bits of pebbles, straw, feathers and other random hoardings."

HOUSTON AL QAEDA LAWYER TARGETED
Shots Fired At Al Qaeda Lawyer
by Winsip Custer WPS News Service
When seven bullets shattered the glass of Richard Hardin's twentieth floor office in downtown Houston yesterday he began to reconsider his representation of Al Qaeda.
"People have very strong feelings about Al Qaeda," said Hardin who claims he is an ancestor of Texas outlaw John Wesley Hardin who historians claim was so mean that he shot a man just for snoring. This reporter discovered, however, that contrary to the initial impression in Hardin's on-line ads at his website www.justforsnorin.com that Al Qaeda is not the Muslim terrorist group, but Ali Baba Qaeda a Lebanese date and pomegranate importer who was jailed in 2009 for filling his fruit with Turkish heroin.
"Why don't you make the distinction?" I asked Mr. Hardin. "Well, the image appeals to many of my clients," said Hardin. "And in my business image is everything." So far police have no clue as to who fired the shots, but have not ruled out the possibility that Mr. Hardin is himself a person of interest in the case.
