Strong stands?

I know it's late, but sometimes the silly things some people say just won't wait until morning. In an interview Thursday morning with CNN's Paula Zahn, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) addressed the challenges facing women in Afghanistan. You know during the Clinton administration, we took some very strong stands. We refused to recognize the Taliban. […]

Afghanistan and the left

If you're not reading the Wall Street Journal's "Best of the Web Today" every day, you should. Often informative, often witty, and often containing information that gets my Irish up, the article is full of inspiration for writing columns. (You can find a link to the Wall Street Journal in the links to the left.) […]

The big news Sunday wasn't war in Afghanistan, where Taliban fighters in Konduz were beginning to surrender to Northern Alliance forces. Nor was it holiday travel, military tribunals or the fact that Democrats are still bottling up President Bush's judicial nominees (which should be a major story). Instead, the talk of the Sunday morning news […]

Well, I didn't write my Thanksgiving column as promised. It's two days later, and I guess it's not going to get written. Right now, in my mind, what I'm thankful for is nothing more than a laundry list which really doesn't lend itself to a column. Also, I'm not sure what I'm thankful for is […]

You, dear reader, can complain all you want, but when it comes to a choice between writing this free column and spending free time with lovely ladies, […]

Good news! All eight of the foreign aid workers held for three months in Afghanistan by the Taliban have been freed. It's still unclear whether or not they were released by their captors or freed by Northern Alliance fighters or, possibly, U.S. special forces. How they were freed isn't important right now, what's important is […]

Stranger in a strange land

Well, it's just one post after another. I wish I had time to write this stuff earlier in the day, but with work being the way it is, I really didn't get time to do it. Normally I'd put this in some sort of bulleted list and just post once, but I'm still working on […]

The media's role

"The Best of the Web Today" is probably one of the best features to be found. Monday through Friday I have a browser window up and start refreshing it around 11 a.m. PST awaiting its appearance. There's always some good stuff there. Today, they featured a letter to the editor to The New York Times […]

Your public library

So, the public library in Boulder, Colo. won't fly Old Glory, but has no problem with displaying "art" that consists of ceramic phalluses in knitted pouches attached to a rope with a noose at one end. More proof that political correctness has taken too much hold on our country. Especially in places of "education." Of […]
