So BillHawk, is this a study you endorse? Have you checked out their methods and are you vouching for this as a valid bit of scientifically gathered and processed data?

Jim
Their methodology is flawless! And their findings are exactly what any reasonable person would expect...

Do you suppose anyone will question the political leanings of Harvard, Kennedy School of Government, or the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation?
Good call! You just nailed every kookberger argument they are likely to throw at this valid study. It will drive them crazy, which is why I posted it.

Seems to be good enough for you. For some reason I wonder though. Makes a good case to you "lovers" of the war mongering for censorship, though, doesn't it?

Gotta hate it when all the research is bought and paid for by the folks that you conveniently support in the report.
