I wonder why articles like this never quite get around to pointing out that the subjects of the articles are thieves? They always seem long, for news stories at least, on sympathy and painting the subjects as warm, loving people. They never get around to the thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants doing time in […]

The economy’s been on a rampage for at least the past three years, but darned if you could find any sort of news coverage from our beloved MSM. Until now. Apparently, the MSM has an angle on this red-hot economy they like, namely that IT COULD KILL YOU! Sorry about the capital letters there, but, […]

Yeah, that’s it!) and also one of the […]

Some scientists have far too much time on their hands. Combining evidence of a cold snap 2,000 years ago with sophisticated mapping of the Sea of Galilee, Israeli and U.S. scientists have come up with a scientific explanation of how Jesus could have walked on water. Their answer: It was actually floating ice. The scientists […]

"Let Moussaoui Live" Because the Death Penalty is Bad and Stuff.

There are, I think, principled reasons to oppose the death penalty. Richard Cohen gives us none of them in his column today. He says that we should not execute Zacharias Moussaoui and gives several reasons, among them: 1) because Moussaoui wants to die; 2) because it would make him a martyr; 3) revenge is bad […]

It seems to be one of those immutable weather laws around here that once you seen police officers wearing their summer uniforms – short-sleeved shirts and their summer straw Stetsons – we’re going to get one last cool snap. You can march through the end of March with temps in the high 60s or low […]

I know I’m a day late to this story but I wanted to give it some room to develop before I went off. And so it has. Yesterday it came out that NBC’s Dateline show was recruiting Muslim Arab men here in America to do some “decoy” work for them. They’d go to various places […]

DeLay and Couric Finding New Gigs, Getting Out of My Face

Looks like two people I don’t like very much are moving on to other ventures. First, Tom Delay, the guy that leftys use to scare their children into eating their brussel sprouts, is resigning his House seat. It’s about time he did, since it doesn’t appear that he’s going to be much good to the […]
