One last thing before I head off to bed. I've discovered that one of the things you're supposed to do in the wonderful world of online journalism is the: "You heard it here first!" pats on the back. So, I get to do my first one. If you read Monday's "Best of the Web Today," […]

It looks like Bush was right to give the American Bar Association the boot from its privilged place in evaluating judicial nominees. If you ever want to be a judge on the federal bench, you better have attended Harvard or Yale or Stanford. A state school apparently isn't good enough. Byron York reports in National […]

Well, thanks to the New York Post's John Podhoretz for clearing something up. Last week, when I saw and heard the quotes from Attorney General John Ashcroft's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Comittee, I thought that he'd gone too far. The video clips and the printed quotes showed that the attorney general basically told the […]

I like columnist Cal Thomas. And I especially like what he's got to say today. A must read.

The defenders of American John Walker Lindh, the 20-year-old who forsook his country to fight for the anti-woman, pro-terrorism Taliban, are arguing that he is just a misled, confused young man. He is obviously suffering from mental illness, they say. I don't buy it. To refer to this 20-year-old man as a "kid" and attempt […]

Well, I must say that I'm proud of my latest accomplishment. I managed to listen to Sen. Hillary Clinton's interview on "Meet the Press." I must admit that I felt a little ill, but I didn't end up driving the porcelain bus. I also found myself agreeing with at least one thing she said. Host […]

Franklin Graham on Islam

Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham has gotten a lot of flak over his remarks about Islam, and he addresses them in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece here. The persecution or elimination of non-Muslims has been a cornerstone of Islamic conquests and rule for centuries. The Koran provides ample evidence that Islam […]

Bad journalism of the day

A U.S. News & World Report online "Exclusive" bears the headline: "Muslim behind bars, despite judge's order." Sounds serious, huh? Sounds like the Ashcroft Justice Department is not following the law, right? We really can't blame the headline writer though, he probably only read the lede. A Turkish Muslim from White Plains, N.Y., held in […]

Pearl Harbor's lessons

Sixty years ago today hundreds of Japanese planes attacked the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. I always remember this day because my grandfather, Thomas Harold Hoy, was a Marine on board the USS California on battleship row that fateful morning. My grandfather survived, but more than 2,000 other Americans did not. "I fear all […]

Reading through Donald McNeil's account of his ouster at the times and amused by his "God and Adolph" anecdote. I had a similar sort of experience at the SDUT.

@GlennKesslerWP Reading your whole thing, it so often feels if you're obfuscating rather than making things clear.

1) Obamacare mandated that LSOTP do something
2) LSOTP say "no", sue on religious grounds
3) Trump admin grants them waiver
4) CA AG says "no waivers!"

@GlennKesslerWP I feel like you're trying to thread a needle here, but even if we accept this distinction, wouldn't that mean that the Obama administration *specifically* opposed the Little Sisters of the Poor by denying them the waiver that the Trump admin granted them?
