Basic Human Rights

American Student, Freed From Russian Jail, Is Home
``It's great to be back in the land of the free ... and a country where basic human rights are respected,'' an exhausted-looking Tobin ... told reporters at a press conference in an airport hangar.

Is that a fact, Jack? Wise up, sport. If you had been arrested by federal agents for marijuana possession here, "in the land of the free", you would still be in jail!

BTW, Jack, seeing as how you and your father are such good buddies with Pres. Bush, maybe you could ask him to put a good word in for some other wrongly imprisoned folks here at home?
