Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

February 2004: Hastert and two partners purchase another 69 acres adjacent to the original property. Here’s a picture of the two parcels, outlined in yellow:

Right. You recall Hillary was investigated and vilified for her cattle futures investment of a "measly" $100,000 that returned 100% in a year or two. Here's Danny getting a 100% return on $1.5M in a few years, and all we'll hear is crickets. And his "luck" is much more easily connected to his own political machinations.
