Ted Kennedy and the left – murdering the Individual

Hotair’s Greenroom has an excellent post on Ted Kennedy’s death in context with the Democrats collectivist agenda.

The meme floated by the Left over the past few days, that Kopechne’s death was a reasonable price to pay for Ted Kennedy’s wonderful political career, is a brutally candid expression of the principle that even an individual’s […]

This is Horrific — If True (Bumped)

I stand by the idea that the scariest person in all of the world is a prosecutor… his or her discretion is almost unbounded — and that includes choosing evidence.

Read this from The New Yorker — it’s long, but well worth it, (Ed. but imbalanced as the UPDATE informs).

News of the tragedy, which […]

I’ve mentioned the “little one” before. How he made it to age 4 is really a blessing for him. Today he started “pre-school” for a couple of days to give my wife a break teach him to play well with others. Apparently he made quite the impression. He doesn’t look like trouble does he? […]

Bartlett: Republicans too partisan

Bruce Bartlett explains in New Majority why he is so “anti-Republican” these days.

I think the party got seriously on the wrong track during the George W. Bush years, as I explained in my Impostor book. In my opinion, it no longer bears any resemblance to the party of Ronald Reagan. I still consider myself […]

Sometimes There’s Crying in Baseball

When I was seven or eight years old, I was in the finals of the Fairfield County Connecticut spelling bee.  The winner would move on to the state finals for a chance to go to the nationals.  Somehow, I lucked out and was given an easy one.


I could spell that in my sleep!

He’s Gathering Moss

UK police are going to re-examine the death of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones who was found tits down in his pool in 1969.
