Soaring like an Eagle

Six weeks old already, but this roundup on John Ashcroft gets into good if not yet impeachable detail on his own little problems with the separation between church and state, and other foibles. E.g,. "Missouri state Sen. Harry Wiggins, for one, recalls a meeting with Ashcroft and a group of Kansas City community leaders when he was governor. The group had tried for months to see the governor about funding to keep open Kansas City's only hospice for AIDS patients. As the meeting began, Wiggins recalled, Ashcroft appeared uninterested until he focused on the facility being a ``home,'' not a hospital. "Then you have my attention,'' the governor said, according to Wiggins. "I'm looking for where it is cheapest to send them to die.''
