    If I recall correctly, "gross" was in fact used by the Louisiana page who wound up being identified publicly.

    There's reason to think that if Foley hadn't been so active in promoting the right wing scare agenda by heading up the GOP anti-pedophile arm, he wouldn't have been so forcefully hoisted on his own petard.

    Its hard to feel sorry for Foley when his own manipulation of wedge issues resulted in his demise.

    I'd actually find myself forgiving and even supporting him if he used his experience to try and right some of the wrongs he fomented, instead of trying to make the distinctions for himself that he should have understood as a congressman but found it more politically convenient to exploit.

    If it were true, they couldn't say it on Fox News. -6.62 -5.90
