El Senador vs. the 'Narc Pirates'

Greg Moses has a piece in Counterpunch, the lefty online journal edited by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, about the intimidation tactics against state Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa by a South Texas drug task force. See Grits' writeup of the incident here.

Thanks, Greg - I appreciate you taking up for El Senador.If we don't defend folks who file good legislation when they're attacked for it, especially in such an underhanded way, how in the world can we expect them to help us next time around?

Have you seen this survey today from Men's Health about the most "depressed" cities? I love poorly done surveys, and this one is a winner. They compiled this data partly by looking at pharmaceutical sales, and declared that Philly, the center of much of America's pharamaceutical industry, is the most depressed city. Geniuses!
