Passing Grade

April 25, 2005 So here's the power of the press for ya: Frank Moss, the deputy assistant secretary for passport services at the State Department, emailed me this morning about my whiny column on the less-than-stellar service I received at a passport processing office. We had a very nice conversation, in which I...

Spend Here, Cut There

April 24, 2005 In his weekly radio address Saturday, President Bush took the time to thank Congress for granting his request for tens of billions of dollars in supplemental spending for the war on terror.

Jailhouse Rock

April 22, 2005 Take cover, residents of Moundsville, W.Va.! Prisoners are bustin' out of the slammer, fleeing the pen, blastin' out of the pokey, and just generally sticking it to the man.

Taxing Advice.

April 19, 2005 Think you can tell the IRS how to do its job better? Then speak up. The agency is recruiting members for its Taxpayer Advisory Panel until April 29.

Lighten Up.

April 19, 2005 Don't assume that just because you're a military service member, the new law prohibiting cigarette lighters an airplanes don't apply to you. It does, according to the Pentagon.

Denny's Grand Slam.

April 18, 2005 What is it with Denny's and federal employees? First the restaurant chain had to fight for years back in the '90s to restore its image after six black Secret Service agents said they were denied service at an Annapolis, Md., restaurant.
