More GORE & CLINTON:
OUR PERFIDIOUS PRESS:
How The Media Falsify The Record
"Scholar" Clinton, "Soldier" Gore
One rumor the mainstream newsies won't be reporting concerns Al Gore's military service in Vietnam. A "former
staffer" for Gore's father, then Sen. Albert Gore of Tennessee, informed C-SPAN Friday morning that young Al had
decided to flee to Canada rather than serve in Vietnam, but was persuaded by his father to do his stint in the Army.
He was given assurances that if he volunteered for Vietnam his father's powerful political friends would see to it that
he did not get a combat assignment and would not be injured in any way. If a report that appeared on the Free
Republic Web site the same day is correct, the politicians were as good as their word -- his father, a prominent
Democrat, hired bodyguards to make sure that not a hair on junior's head was harmed while he served out his
five-month hitch as a military journalist far from the front. (Come to think of it, how many grunts were in Vietnam for
only five months -- apart from those who were killed or wounded?) Why mention such a rumor if it hasn't been
confirmed? Well, those left-liberal Clinton supporters who masquerade as the Washington press corps could ask Al
about it, couldn't they? After all, they have been quick enough to ask GOP candidates about far-fetched stories
dreamed up by jail-birds. MORE........

What Can I Take for a Cold?:
Though it's usually better to avoid using any drugs -- either
prescription or over-the-counter -- during pregnancy, in some cases
the health of the mother has to take precedence over any small risk to
the baby. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and fever reducer. Though
it does cross the placenta, there have been no reports of fetal harm,
and it's considered perfectly safe to use during pregnancy. If you'd
like to forgo using this drug, try a warm bath to relieve aches and
pains. If you're running a fever, dress lightly and be sure to drink
plenty of fluids. For a very high fever, it's better to try to bring
it down with acetaminophen or a cool bath. If your fever climbs to 102
degrees Fahrenheit, call your doctor.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!
Does your baby have an ear infection?:
It can be difficult to tell, but if your child has a cold and then
gets a fever about three to five days later, she may have an ear
infection. She may also tug at her ear or be out of sorts. Sucking and
swallowing can also hurt, so if your baby starts to eat and then pulls
away from your breast or a bottle, seemingly in pain, and she also has
any of the above symptoms, call your pediatrician. Treatment with
antibiotics--usually amoxicillin--will wipe out the invaders, but her
body may take up to three months to reabsorb the fluid. Fluid alone
may not require medical attention, but if your child has the symptoms
of an ear infection, such as a fever, you should check with your
healthcare professional right away.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!

This recipe uses orange rind, so this is a good place to put in a good
word for citrus oils. If you don't like the time, expense, and scraped
knuckles involved in removing the zest (outer rind) from lemons and
oranges, I suggest you buy bottles of orange and lemon oil. This
strongly flavored oil is contained in the outer peel of fruit, and
it's what you're really after when you add the outer rind to a recipe.
An eighth of a teaspoon of lemon oil or a quarter teaspoon of orange
oil equals an entire fruit's worth of zest, so a little bottle lasts a
long time. You can find the oil in the King Arthur Flour catalog or
Web site located at:http://www.kingarthurflour.com
It's also available at gourmet food stores.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9-inch or two 8-inch loaf
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup orange juice, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon grated orange rind (or 1/4 teaspoon orange oil)
- 1 egg, well beaten, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, melted
- 2 cups cranberries, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Combine orange juice, rind, egg, and shortening.
Add orange juice mixture to flour mixture; stir just until all dry
ingredients are moistened. Gently fold in cranberries and nuts. Spoon
into prepared pans; bake 50 to 60 minutes, until a tester inserted in
the center comes out clean.
So until next time, REMEMBER: Not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck....
