Today’s Washington Post has an article that seems to be to be a good hunk of frippery and alarmism or as Shakespeare would have put it “much ado about nothing”. It seems that the safe warm nest of Federal employment is going to get a bit less safe and warm. Hundreds of thousands of federal […]

Jay Tea from Wizbang has an Easter story I think is worth reading, and maybe worth keeping with you this summer. My Easter message? Well, I don’t really have a special one, beyond that which I’d say any other day of the year. Life is a special thing and we ought to enjoy every single […]

It started in the Ukraine. Or perhaps it started in Georgia, in 2003. Or perhaps it started in East Germany, and Poland, and Czechoslovakia fifteen plus years ago. Regardless of where and when it started, the power of the people in instigating political change is becoming increasingly clear. Starting in December of last year, we […]

Thanks to reader Danny Carlton for noting that my RSS feed isn’t validating. Problem is, I have no idea how to fix the problems and I don’t have the spare time to learn all the ins and outs necessary to do so. Any help out there?

I’m betting you might be in the mood for a touch of good news today. I know I certainly am. So how about some good stuff from Iraq? First, we get the story that Iraqi forces planned to attack, then attacked terrorists north of Baghdad and killed somewhere between 11 and 80 with very minimal […]

This should help me some. The New York Times says today that Terri Schaivo isn’t starving. That’s good to know. I was pretty worried, what with her not getting any food for a week. Silly me.

WARNING!!! What follows this brief couple of sentences is a rant. This rant will be about the Terri Schaivo case, so if you don’t care about the case one way or the other, you’re probably better off skipping this. Unlike most of my other posts about Terri and those folks orbiting her hospital bed, tihs […]

It’s a pretty convincing column, assuming you didn’t know a lot about the Schaivo case. I, as you might expect, have issue with it on both factual and non-factual […]
