Editorials

Editorial
Bush Won, America Lost
Like many of our fellow citizens, I feel no elation or joy that the election is over. It really didn't matter who won or who lost. What hurts and pains the most is that our nation is in a perilous situation. Our most cherished institutions, that have made this nation the best in the world, have been ignored, bypassed, and rendered meaningless by fraud, deceit, greed and the dangerous grasp for power by dangerous unprincipled men. America has met its worse enemy and it is US! We stand naked and exposed for the fraud that we really are.

Mexico's Quinones Impressive in 3-2 Loss to U.S.
By John Philip Wyllie
Coming into Sunday night's game with the United States, Mexico's fledgling women's national soccer team had been outscored 41-0 by the defending Women's World Cup champions. The fact that Mexico had never come close to winning and not scored a single goal in the team's five previous meetings no doubt weighed heavily on the mind's of Leonardo Cuellar's young players. This made Sunday's hard fought battle, a 3-2 decision in favor of the United States, all the more surprising.
