Today's Wall Street Journal has a link to some wit and wisdom collected by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. My favorite one now resides in the box to the left. It's worth a read.

Filling posts

Well, the subject of recess appointments has come up again. With the Congress out of town, Bush can use recess appointments to help staff his administration. This isn't the first time that Congress has been slow in approving a president's nominees. When Clinton was in office, there were delays and fights over nominees. Clinton had […]

Dumb headline writers

Well, I watched San Diego State's mens basketball team play No. 1-ranked Duke this afternoon. The Aztecs played very well, losing 92-79 -- that's 13 points for the mathematically challenged. Quite a good performance for an unranked team going into Cameron Indoor Stadium. My question is, who's the idiot headline writer over at espn.com? "After […]

They're a rare breed

Who says it's impossible for me to agree with a liberal Democrat? From Friday's letters to the editor in the San Francisco Chronicle: Editor -- While Jonathan Tan (Letters, Dec. 25) and I agree in objecting to bomb attacks on abortion mills, I regret that Tan is not aware of two important items. It is […]

Helen Thomas, nut

Helen Thomas, the grand dame of the White House press corps, takes time out this week to plead for the traitor John Walker Lindh's life. Perhaps in mulling over Walker's life, he (President Bush) will try to remember when he was a 20-year-old. True, he did not defiantly challenge the system as so many young […]

Apparently as part of its Christmas Day schedule, VH1 replayed the "Concert for America" that occurred earlier this year. But if you saw this replay, you would have heard something different. This time, when Hillary speaks, there's no boos. That's right, VH1 put in "general crowd noise" and wiped out the chorus of boos that […]

Also in today's Washington Post (a wealth of information), is a piece by Kevin J. Hasson, president of the Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty, tackles the issue of truth. In the continuing debate over Islam and pluralism, a growing number of observers are staking out a disturbing position. Face the facts, they say: The war […]

George Will sings the praises of my great-great-great (maybe one or two more greats...I'll leave it to my father the genealogist to figure out) uncle, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman. One of Sherman's less well known quotes opens Will's column: "I fear the world will jump to the wrong conclusion that because I am in Atlanta […]

I've lost a measure of respect for Fox News for its handling of Geraldo Rivera. First off, let me say that when Geraldo comes on, I either change the channel, fast forward (if I'm watching a tape) or turn the TV off. He used to be a journalist, but he sold out and became and […]

@ZebraFactCheck @PolitiFactBias The majority of posts I saw talking about the 1% were noting the accurate 40% stat. It's telling PolitiFact went searching for the claim they could swat down as "false," rather than fact-checking the accurate claim as "true." Reminds me of this exchange https://twitter.com/fact_meta/status/1431378857798488068

@kentorianu @ZebraFactCheck @PolitiFact Since there's concern about bad faith arguments, I'll make it simple.

Vaccinated people can spread variants. True or False?
