People Worth Reading

DAVID WARREN on the State of the War "Many still argue that the war is a figment of the Bush administration’s imagination. How I wish they were right."

NEO looks at the Questioning of authority liberal commandment "...the kneejerk questioning of authority and the reflexive suspicion of all institutions of government...."

DOCTOR BOB attempts to install Windows XP with predictable results -- Outcome: Disaster. Unmitigated. We'd like to "feel his pain," but we have Macs.

MICHELLE'S fresh out of compassion. "Where's the sympathy for innocent, law-abiding citizens who have lost their lives at the hands

of illegal aliens and their open-borders enablers?" [P.S. Don't miss Michelle's video about Cheat River @ Hot.]

GODWIN notes what should be obvious -- If God Does Not Exist, Then Only He Knows It: "God in his essence so surpasses our conceptual categories that he is beyond being or knowing, beyond the very horizon of knowability."

STRATA explains how you can confess without confessing that you leaked classified information. It is easy when you know how.

ROGER'S not granting either money or amnesty to the lying Amnesty International . Motivation for lies? "the greatest motivation of all. I will put it in block letters with an exclamation point: MONEY! Amnesty International exists by donation. Do you think they get one penny from opponents of the death penalty in China, Saudi Arabia and Iran?"

PORETTO points out that Libertarianism needs to reset itself via a cold reboot if many people are going to take it seriously: "To revitalize the liberty movement as a movement -- that is, as a body of adherents to a set of coherent principles from which consistent policy positions can be derived -- it will be necessary to "deradicalize" it."

CALLIMACHUS writes in depth and movingly of Marlene Dietrich and, yes, Robert E. Lee : "Two lilacs out of the dead land have followed me all this month."
