North Korea threatens to nuke America

Still-Communist North Korea says that it will not only continue to develop its nuclear weapons program, but it will also develop long-range rockets and target its nuclear missiles at the United States.  “Settling accounts with the US needs to be done with force, not with words,” the North Korean government says.

March for Life

The March for Life takes place Friday, a massive demonstration in Washington, D.C., against abortion, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision.  This is the 40th anniversary of that infamous ruling and the 40th march.  Hundreds of thousands of people will march through the streets of our nation’s capital.

More blog updates

We now have comment numbering!  We no longer have comment nesting!  As I already reported, we now have e-mail comment notification!  We now have text boxes of flexible size!

I think the only other major request that a lot of you asked for was to have full-text RSS feeds.  [Read more…]
