    While we await a retiring FBI agent's report on a federal investigation of FBI Misconduct Rises by Half
    Bureau Blames Better Reporting, Tougher Standards

    By James Gordon Meek
    50 Percent Rise in FBI Misconduct Cases Reported 
    WASHINGTON ( -- Incidents of misconduct among FBI employees shot up by nearly half last year, according to a report issued by the bureau. The infractions ranged from downloading pornography on bureau computers to a road rage incident in which an agent pulled a weapon on a deputy sheriff during a traffic altercation, the report said.


    How it feels to be short shorn . . .

    Without mention of honor, guts, glory, integrity, ethics, competence or brains . . . 

    How much decency we feel we must cede to satisfy District Attorney General Bill Gibson's seeming, at least to us, after thoughtful consideration, for months and years, with no malice,  something that in the past The Putnam pit would unattractively have called "inferiority 'I-must-control- ,'" sociopath-driven need to prevail. 

    How we feel about DA Gibson prosecuting the Looper murder case
    How we would feel if the case were jeopardized because he insists on prosecuting despite his links to the case.
    How we feel about the chances of Gibson being forced to testify? How we would feel if Gibson were committed to a psychiatric hospital, driven in one of Sheriff Jerry Abston's cars, two weeks before trial, just before he was to testify about setting up Byron Looper; How we'd feel if we had been fed lies? How we would feel if land speculation was behind the killing. How we feel about corruption, conniving and justice disregarded. How we feel about political use of the criminal justice system.

    How would we feel if Burks' killer stays  free because Gibson needs a witness against Looper?
    Bill Gibson: Do we feel there's more to the Tommy Burks murder story! How would you feel if we felt that you are blocking it? Is it your feeling that some people may feel that the killer feels like one of your witnesses? 
    How we feel about what you can tell from a man's eyes?
    Whether or not we feel you can tell whether he was a bad, bad boy?
    Billy's been a bad, bad boy! Shame on Billy.
    Does it feel like Billy's been a bad, bad boy?
    'Did it feel bad when you were feeling you were being a bad, bad boy?' 
    "It didn't feel like I was being bad, bad."

    How do you feel Al Gore feels about cartoonists feeling like they can make him feel however they want?
