Well that's one heck of a mistake

From today's New York Times corrections desk: An article on Sunday about attacks on the American military in Iraq over the previous two days, attributed to military officials, included an erroneous account that quoted Pfc. Jose Belen of the First Armored Division. Private Belen, who is not a spokesman for the division, said that a […]

I'm a Lileks kind of man

James Lileks takes on the Episcopal Church with regards to the standards that they have for their bishops. Now, there are Biblical reasons for opposing the leadership of an actively gay man (or woman) in any Christian church. Lileks lays out an excellent case why the Rev. Gene Robinson should not be given a position […]

Not-so subtle bias

When this Boston Globe article came over the wire last night I was dismayed but not entirely surprised. The article is a rather long one regarding the Episcopal Church rejecting the adoption of a liturgy for same-sex relationships. (Though, today the Episcopal Church OK'd a "compromise" that some don't consider a compromise -- but that's […]

Saving lives

The Hoover Institution's Henry Miller has an op-ed piece in today's New York Times on DDT. Miller argues that the limited use of DDT to kill mosquitos and prevent the spread of malaria, West Nile virus and other diseases is good public policy. I agree. DDT is cheap and safe for both humans and the […]

The Governator

It's very possible that the nail was put in Gov. Gray Davis' coffin Wednesday with Arnold Schwarzenegger's surprise announcement that he would be running for governor. For the past few days, word had been that Schwarzenegger (oh, that will be the bane of headline writers -- try to fit that in a 1 column headline) […]

Why I use a computer program to do my taxes

Don Luskin makes some calls on Krugman's sourcing and does taxes better than I. At most, Bush's tax cuts would reduce a 28% tax on $2000 to a 15% tax -- for a savings of $260, only about a third of the $725 savings in the example. My calculation was apparently more generous to Krugman […]

Defending the Democrats

Josh Marshall, sometimes referred to as Paul Krugman's political brain, has an article in The Hill magazine defending Democrats on the Senate judiciary committee against the charges of an anti-Catholic crusade. Marshall counterattacks on two points: First, is opposing a judicial nominee for having doctrinaire views on abortion the same as demanding that he or […]

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.
