My Christmas Book List

I have to say that this Christmas found me considerably enriched, both in the thought that went into my gifts and in the time I spent with my family.

Coming to America, Pope-Style

I was reading an article about the pope's visit to America, and was pleased to see that it was positive.  I'm excited about this opportunity for American Catholics to see and hear the pope address them directly.  It doesn't happen every day, you know.  But this article, well, it was funny.  Because it was humming… Continue reading »


Am I Getting Smarter? Or is Fox Reading My Blog?

So, to those of you who do read this stuff I put up here, do you recall my post from a few days ago?  The one about Fred Thompson, in which I reasoned that if the Presidency is beyond his reach then he might at least be considered for the VP spot?  The better to… Continue reading »


Killer Troops, Imaginary Horrors, Overblown Anti-War Pisspots…

I defy anyone to argue with Mark Steyn.  The man is simply a genius.  He makes me depressed by exposing how utterly screwed up the West's collective head is.  Is it any wonder that an Islamic group in Canada was trying to have him muzzled? At some point conservatives will have to abandon the polite… Continue reading »


War Simulation Game, Cracked.

My friend W manages to find the most interesting sites on the Internet.  Apparently Cracked, the lesser-known periodical in the style of Mad, has switched to online content.  And it's hilarious.  Observe. One contributor wishes for an improved Real Time Strategy game.  Wish number 14: 14. I want fat, left-wing documentarians carefully editing the only… Continue reading »

But you'd be wrong.  In my memory, the Tidewater region of Virginia has always had fairly schizophrenic Decembers.  It goes back… Continue reading »


Do They Still Make Men Like This?

Upon the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, I recently began reading the personal recollections of one Peter Hathaway Capstick, a professional hunter who seems to have stepped out of the 1880s.  His book Death in the Long Grass has at once inflamed my passions and shamed me for my lack of manly pursuits.  It is… Continue reading »


Sowell on U.S.

Taking for Granted This country‚Äôs survival is not automatic. What we do will determine that. By Thomas Sowell When my research assistant and her husband took my wife and me to dinner at a Chinese restaurant, I was impressed when I heard her for the first time speak Chinese as she ordered food. My assistant… Continue reading »


Climate Change is…People?

Charlton Heston on Global Climate Change This is what I mean when I talk about hubris and vanity.  To think that our impact on the planet will last any longer than it takes our bones to turn to fertilizer is folly.  And to think that even if we pollute and despoil the planet that life… Continue reading »
