The House of Representatives just narrowly defeated an amendment to deny funds to operate Vice President Dick Cheneyâ€™s office. Cheney had insisted that his office is exempt from Executive Department oversight by arguing that he is not part of that department. Rep.

"Last night," reports Lew Rockwell, "620 people jammed a small theater in Kansas City, cheering at almost every sentence on peace, freedom, and prosperity that came out of Ron Paul's mouth. Even the NY Times Magazine photographer and LA Times reporter along for the ride were impressed. For this was not a centrally organized event, but a local, spontaneous Meetup.com gathering.
