- In 1989 William F. Buckley described the impact of the murderous Mao Tse-tung on China and gullible people.
- Martin Gardner made math fun for many children. He turned 95 years old two days ago; he is not dead.
- CNN interviewed the Yes Men liar and rewards bad behavior. It would not be the first time.
- Victor Davis Hanson briefly runs through the President’s mismanagement of Afghanistan.
- Leftist blogger Roger Pielke, Jr. explains how he was minimized and marginalized by his Leftist blog counterparts for a minor disagreement.
- There is a special election for New York Congressional District 23, the Congressional seat, I am sure. It involves two Leftists, one of which is a Democrat who has enough strategic sense of ripping on the Republican Leftist for being too far left. There is a Conservative Republican running as the third candidate, endorsed by New York’s Conservative Party and all New York Conservatives should support this Conservative for the sake of principles, as does Fred Thompson. Newt Gingrich supports one of the leftists. National Review states clearly that the Republican Party is wrong. We need o abandon blind partisanship and support a candidate who believes what we believe, in the rare cases that we have the option to do so.
Certainly we believe in standards of truth, rather than labels, no?
