Patrick at Paragraph Farmer brings us an animation that is both far and near. It’s very cool. Go look.
David Brooks had a terrific column today that basically lifts the mists and spells out exactly how the Democrats have revealed themselves to be completely phoney in their concerns. Or, maybe not phoney. I don’t think they’re so much phoney as just so committed to being against anything – anything at all – that President Bush is for, that they will even turn their backs on their own suggestions. I’m sorry but that much hate is just sick. I’ve said before that this party is in need of not simply a strategy but real healing. The Democrats need someone with true greatness to emerge – not the manufactured and helped-along myth of Hillary. I mean something real. I hope it happens. Our country would be better served by a two party system in which both parties are fully committed to service over sniping.
And because his column on this issue was so good, I ‘m re-linking to Krauthammer. I’m also linking to No Speed Bumps who has a SocSec plan based on major reforms. I don’t know if I understand it all…but it’s always good to look at all the ideas, no?
Kentucky Packrat is hosting the Christian Carnival this week. It’s huge and there is a lot of good stuff there. Happy reading!
Remember that firefighter who awoke? Seems someone’s been asking a potential saint for help. I think miracles have to be full and permanent, unexplainable cures, though. Don’t know if it qualifies.
CUANAS has an interesting picture of the progess that is being made in turning Paris into Eurabia. Things look to be progressing quickly.
Dr. Rusty Shackleford has been posting a series, The Damned of the West that makes for good reading on a Sunday night. You’ll want to print it all out.
This is sort of interesting. Were these taped excerpts about someone in the GOP, I am quite certain they’d be all over the MSM, instead, there’s just this one little item, near as I can see. H/T The Powerline Guys, who also wonder if Howard Dean is dragging down the Dems. I’ve been wondering about him for a while.
Oh. And Dirty Harry is still blaming me for Tina Brown!
Mr. Wong says: Am very much enjoying Remembered Past: John Lukacs on History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge—A Reader, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson (Wilmington DE, ISI Books, 2005). Sounds like one for my bookshelf.
My Yankees finally won a game, today. Mike Mussina did a great job pitching. I still dislike A-Rod and I am still convinced he is the one who reversed the curse.
Young Gerald Augustinus (young as in his blog is only a few weeks old, and because he is under 35) has a thought of two about Mr. Dean as well. And some thoughts on St. Maximilian Kolbe. I like this guy, he is newly baptised but…umm…he is a Red Sox fan, and so…you know…there’s problems, and he has been warned not to try me too high!
