It’s only Tuesday and I’m so swamped that I haven’t even checked out Instapundit (and this little intro of his is why I must check him everyday!), yet, but I have some 50 tabs open; always a sign that it’s time for a headline roundup. Fasten your seatbelts, kids!
WTC-Mosque/Obama Stuff: Lots of people writing well, so I needn’t write at all, but allow me to say that if we had by now managed to have built new towers at the WTC, this mosque would not matter.
