Keith Olbermann on Countdown gives a great dressing-down of Bob ("shut the eff up!") Costa and a great historical rationale FOR Bob to shut the eff up. Don't know if you or Buzz read this here, Bob (speak the eff up!) Cesca, but if so, disseminate the KO punch! A formidable ally.

why is it when the consequences of abortion, especially the physical and psychological, are discussed, "people" is the word used, not "women"?
