I really love...

... the gentile and loving manner that Ms. Ann Coulter adopts when she writes about people and institutions with whom and with which she does not agree. I heartily recomend this week's editorial, a small porton of which appears in the following citation.

April 20, 2005
... The Arizona Daily Star (stated) that charges had to be dismissed because I didn't show up for the trial.
Of course it's hard to know what anyone said in this country based on newspaper accounts. The actual statements people make are filtered through reporters, who, as we know, are generally unexecutable in this country under Atkins v. Virginia (holding the death penalty for mentally retarded persons unconstitutional).
The editorial may be found in it's entirety at...
Peace and all good,

It's mid-month...

... again! That means that it's time for the CREDO again. At the end-of-the-month a lot of the stores in town have sales and blogspot archives the posts. I think that the CREDO is important enough that everbody should have an opportunity to see and read it at least once. Small words and short...

Ride Hard!
Shoot Straight!
Speak Truth!
See... That didn't hurt, did it?

South Park Conservatives:

...Snapshot of the Culture Wars

Edward B. Driscoll, Jr. - published 4/15/05

Those right-of-center college students, for the most part, aren't Alex P. Keaton-clones, decked out in Ralph Lauren double-breasted navy blue blazers. They're more likely to look like every other college kid: jeans, sneakers, and T-shirts advertising their favorite rock groups. (On the other hand, as Anderson notes in his book, campus South Park conservatives usually smell better than their bathing-optional counterparts on the left). But there's one thing that South Park campus conservatives abhor: "Political correctness drives them nuts"*, Anderson says. "In interviewing students, for instance, it was clear how much the PC conformities of the campus Left turned them off."

The Media: Leftwing Overreach, Rightwing Pioneering

The "over PC-ing" of the media brings up a key aspect of today's culture wars. "One key reason the Right is, if not winning", Anderson says, "at least no longer losing the culture wars isn't the new media; it's the intellectual exhaustion of the Left, something that has become especially apparent in a post-9/11 era".*

… Ten years ago, 60 percent of adult Americans regularly tuned in to one of the network newscasts. Now it's only about one in three. And people have lost trust in the mainstream outlets*."

As proof, he cites a Pew Research poll last year, which found "that just 21 percent of its respondents viewed the New York Times as a trustworthy news source -- a figure below that of Fox News*, it's worth noting,"

…Fox arrived as a major professional news organization with the capacity to define the news as something other than what the elite consensus says it is…

he's trying to ensure that academia "isn't a machine for left-wing political advocacy".

The whole article makes for a good read. The website is listed. You might not find it on a major outlet or in the New Jerk Times.

I am heartened... learn that there is life North of the Boarder. Apparently it is not the bleak spot (from a conservative point of view) that the New Jerk Times and the Washington Compost portray. I remand you to a nugget of Canadian gold at...

You will be in the care of 'John the Mad'. I think that that you may like his slant on things. If he were a bird, he would be flying anti-clockwise over the Tundra.

Enjoy the trip to Canada,



... revisited

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings...but this one is real, and it's important.

So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list:

If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday; I feel so stupid now.......
