Pruden: Dealing with the mad dogs in Iraq

By Wesley Pruden So what do you do when a pack of mad dogs invades your town — or your world? The short answer is easy: You kill ‘em, with no apologies to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. But it’s not easy for the civilized to deal with rabid men among us. […]

Pruden: Brutal politics in a not-so-gay place
