Patriot Act

I think there's been a lot of overhyped concern about civil liberties and the Patriot Act. The Weekly Standard's David Tell, explores some of the poor reporting regarding the Patriot act from (surprise) The New York Times.

Biased British Corporation?

Is that what the BBC has become? Well, this account of their BBC World Service radio broadcast is evidence of. The author, journalist Denis Boyles, also makes a larger point about journalism as a whole that's worth remembering. "I was wrong." Of all the words in all the paragraphs in all the stories ever written […]

More on Pryor

National Review's Byron York has more on the William Pryor nomination that I discussed earlier. York comes to many of the same conclusions I did, namely that Democratic senators are not anti-Catholic per se, but their use of the abortion litmus test has a de facto effect of barring orthodox Catholics, evangelical Christians, orthodox Jews […]

There's a right way...

And a wrong way -- to teach. I guess I was fortunate (and smart) to attend a university where the purpose is to teach. Some of the more "upper-tier" universities, it appears, are more interested in name recognition then whether or not the students are learning. Don Luskin publishes a letter from a former student […]

Missing Hope

I'm too young to have collected voluminous memories of the late, great Bob Hope. But I certainly enjoyed watching and reading many of the tributes to the man who probably had more influence on American comedy than any other. I particularly liked this article by Doug Gamble, one of Hope's writers. Hope's own wit was […]

Phantom corrections don't fly in Mobile

Mobile Register editor Michael Marshall has banned New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd from the pages of his newspaper over the Times' refusal to acknowledge the "Dowdified" quote from President Bush: An opinion column by Maureen Dowd of The New York Times, published in the May 15 Mobile Register, should have quoted President Bush as […]

Punk politics

I was sitting in the Vista In-N-Out burger last night hanging out with some friends when a group of punk teens came in. You know, the mohawk haircut kind. One fo them had his hair dyed all sorts of multicolored hues and in footlong spikes at every angle. The conversation turned to what sorts of […]

Mark Steyn is a genius

Check out his latest: "BBC World News -- now with all content guaranteed sexed down." Good evening. Reports that the former Italian leader Benito Mussolini is "dead" and "hanging" "upside down" at a petrol station were received with scepticism in Rome today. Our "reporter" - whoops, scrub the inverted commas round "reporter", the scare-quotes key […]

There's a right way, and a wrong way...

to handle the issue of free speech on campus. The wrong way is how Cal Poly has done it with regard to Steve Hinkle who is getting the book thrown at him for posting a non-offensive flier. The right way is illustrated by UC San Diego, which determined that a far more offensive publication was […]

Religious beliefs and the judiciary

There's been a lot of hubbub on Capitol Hill in recent weeks over the nomination of Alabama Attorney General William Pryor to the federal Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Pryor, a devout Catholic, has outraged the Senate Judiciary Committee's minority democrats with his professed belief that Roe v. Wade was a horrible court […]

Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow https://www.noozhawk.com/article/vandenberg_sfb_bids_farewell_to_delta_iv_heavy_rocket

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1573069778021150722

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
