If you don't have anything nice to say...

The Washington Post would rather you not say anything at all. Some advertising types at the Post came up with a good idea for making the paper some money -- something I enthusiastically approve of -- sell classified ads in a special Jan. 20 Inauguration Day issue of the paper. For $5 a line with […]

Obama's education pick

It is really no surprise that President-elect Barack Obama would pick the schools chief from his hometown, Arne Davis, to be education secretary in his administration. Obama would've certainly come to know Davis during his time heading the failed Chicago Annenberg Challenge -- a fact that seems absent from most of today's news reporting. (You […]

"No inappropriate discussions"

Sen. Barack Obama's denial last week that neither he nor his campaign had had any discussions with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has changed. Reminiscent of Al Gore's "no controlling legal authority" line comes word that Obama's campaign did talk with Balgojevich, but there were "no inappropriate discussions." The exact nature of the discussions will have […]

I'll take that bet

Al "The Goracle" Gore has made a prediction, and I'm willing to bet everything I own (which, sadly, in this economy isn't much) that Gore is wrong. Entire north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 years. Is the man a liar or a fool? Or both? On a related note, the Associated Press […]

Newsweek lies

The current issue of Newsweek magazine has a cover article making the case that the Bible says gay marriage is OK. In fact, if you read religion editor Lisa Miller's piece, you would get the impression that gay marriage may actually be the God-preferred marriage. Let's try for a minute to take the religious conservatives […]

Heroes

Yesterday, the Army awarded Silver Stars to 10 Green Berets for heroism during a firefight in Afghanistan. A harrowing, nearly seven-hour battle unfolded on that mountainside in Afghanistan's Nuristan province on April 6, as Walton, his team and a few dozen Afghan commandos they had trained took fire from all directions. Outnumbered, the Green Berets […]

Check the databases

In a report out today, the Associated Press makes an assertion. President-elect Barack Obama, relatively young and inexperienced, is facing a rapidly growing list of monumental challenges as he prepares to take the reins of a nation in turmoil. I'd really appreciate it if someone with access to the Lexis/Nexis database would do a search […]

Jeremiah Wright does Dan Quayle

From a Jeremiah Wright sermon last Sunday, the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. "Today is Dec. 7, the day that this government killed over 80,000 Japanese civilians at Hiroshima in 1941, two days before killing an additional 64,000 Japanese civilians at Nagasaki by dropping nuclear bombs on innocent people." His theology […]

The Looming Tower

It would surprise most Americans to know that Greeley, Colo., founded as a temperance colony, was such a decadent place that it inspired modern anti-American terrorism. It's surprising, but that's the starting point for Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer-Prize winning book which draws a line from Sayyid Qutb time spent in the post-WWII Greeley to the rise […]
