Quick Fix 6 — 12/21/05

1. APhoto Fix: In this video grab released today, by the Marseille Public Assistance Hospital, the medical team led by Gabriel Lena, in charge of the paediatric neurological department of the Marseille Timone hospital and Dominique Casanova, plastic surgeon of Marseille’s North hospital, performs the separation of 15-month old twin boys. (Yeah, I know it’s graphic; then, I figured most of us are grownups who’ve seen worse on “CSI”.)

5. Top of the News Fix: Cheney breaks Senate tie on spending cuts here, Witness recounts torture by Saddam regime here, NYC enters second day of transit strike here, New York tries to slam brakes on “Choose Life” plates here, and Poll: 85% believe they’re going to heaven here.

6. Opinion Fix: Kathryn Jean Lopez/National Review (Don’t be myth-understood), Chuck Colson/Check Point (Intelligent Design & courts), Michael Novak/National Review (Tocqueville at 200), Linda Chavez/Center for Equal Opportunity (Partisanship & patriotism), Kellyanne Conway/National Review (Demos’ month of missed opportunity),
