the non-violence advocate from the university of louisville who advocated killing president bush* [previous coverage here] also suggested:

I say once you get out of New Orleans or wherever else has been destroyed you demand FREE housing and medical treatment paid for by the U.S. government.

Northwest Airlines Is Bankrupt…Finally!

The fact that Northwest Airlines is filing for bankruptcy should come as no surprise to anyone who has had the privilege of flying with them in the past few years.
