This is going around the web today (by definition, tomorrow […]

I was reading Juan Cole’s blog (why? Hey, it’s worth keeping other points of view in sight, even if they’re wrong) last night and came across a rather interesting statement: Iraq now faces many key issues that could tear the country apart, from the issues of Kirkuk and Mosul to that of religious law.

What a day. I wish I could say something particularly insightful that hasn’t already been said at a hundred different blogs, but really, what more is there to say? Anyone who didn’t get a little choked up at images of Iraqis celebrating and holding up blue fingers is deadened by some political agenda that sure […]

This doesn’t seem like a bad idea at all. Got an ink pad at work? Use it in a slightly different way tomorrow…

Iraqi voted today. God bles every one of them as they take their first bold steps toward freedom and liberty. You can get a first-hand look at what it was like to be an Iraqi today by reading Mohammed and Omar. I walked forward to my station, cast my vote and then headed to the […]

PowerLine caught a photo off of Yahoo’s photo page featuing one of the comlier people participating in this year’s Polar Bear Plunge in Annapolis, MD. I figured I’d let you all in on what that was about, since it s for a prety good cause. The Polar Bear Plunge is one of three events sponsored […]

Come on. You have to admit that reading “The Council Speaks” every week gets kid of boring, doesn’t it? And hey, if I can’t win, I can at least have fun with a post title! This was another week full of strong posts and I honestly thought I had a good shot of winning. I […]

I’ve really had it with Aaron MacGruder. His cavalier attacks on the Iraqi people for daring to vote really has gone over the line.

I don’t go in for the “free giveaway’ sort of things but this one has stuck around for awhile and, believe it or not, I’ve read enough success stories from reputable sources (or at least sources that I don’t believe are lying to me) about this one to believe it’s worth trying. Here’s the deal. […]
