Gilbert drained a tough three-pointer at the buzzer to send the game into OT but the Pacers pulled out the win 119-110. Caron Butler and Antawn Jameson both had sub-par shooting nights, which hurt the team. Butler, in fact, missed the first of two free throws right near the end of the game which would […]

I’ve seen this story from the University of Delaware about five or six times in the past couple days. Every time I see it I wonder what educator in their right mind could possibly accept the coercive reeducation of young people under their charge? What strange little switch in their heads flipped over to “totalitarian” […]

You might recall that earlier this month,the Washington Post buried a story about lower US casualties in Iraq on Page A14. When the Post’s Howard Kurtz asked a couple reporters why that would be so when higher casualties are routinely front-page news, we were told that it really wasn’t a trend and who could trust […]

What would Hallowe’en be without a post dedicated to the macabre and strange? Well, you don’t get much more macabre and strange – and strangely charming – than the work of Edward Gorey. His work can be found in plenty of places: over 100 books, the Gorey-inspired opening credits of the long running Mystery series […]

The NBA has a new marketing slogan this year, “Where Amazing Happens” which is, I think, a way for the league to step away from the old marketing scheme which was pretty much to pump up a few star players and let the merchandising for those guys (Kobe, Shaq, D-Wade, Kevin Garnett, etc) carry the […]

If several members of a leftist activist group plead guilty to their part in the largest case of election fraud in Washington State history and it barely makes a ripple in the MSM, did it really happen? Or is voter fraud not such a big deal since the left hasn’t found any evidence that the […]

Gilbert Arenas, NBA Superstar and Decent Man

| October 30, 2007 | Reply

With the Washington Wizards opener right around the corner, Mike Wise wrote a very good article about All-Star point guard Gilbert Arenas that I think you’ll like. Arenas did not have an easy life by any stretch, but thanks to his father and some good folks around him, he’s become a good man, although not […]

Islamists in Londonistan and More on the King

Islamists in Londonistan and More on the King

| October 30, 2007 | Reply

Yesterday, I wrote about how the King of Saudi Arabia scolded England for not fighting terrorism vigorously enough. Contrast that story with this one, in today’s Telegraph, on Islamist material coming out of British mosques. Most of the material encourages British Muslims to treat non-Muslims as second-class citizens, to kill anyone who changes his religion, […]
