Democratic White House hopeful John Edwards’ team has been collecting e-mail addresses from supporters who’ve sent his cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, notes – and using them for fund-raising requests, aides acknowledged yesterday.
Glad I didn’t send a “get well” email! Although I do wish her the best, I find it appalling that his campaign is using well wishes from folks to raise money.
A spring storm brought more than a foot of snow to parts of the upper Northeast, closing schools, tangling traffic and knocking out power to more than 180,000 homes and businesses on Thursday.

Gov. Jim Doyle said today Georgia Thompson can have her job back as a $77,300-a-year state purchasing supervisor.
Pay off for not ratting out Gov. Dopey?
Legislation that would require individuals convicted of promoting prostitution to be tested for HIV overwhelmingly passed the House on Thursday, but one lawmaker who voted against the measure believes it’s unconstitutional.
Of the trio, Kelsey was the only one who debated with Jones on the House floor, calling the bill unconstitutional because pimps are usually not “alleged to have engaged in any sexual activity” with prostitutes.
And from what planet does THAT Republican call home?
