I’ve just noticed that TTLB’s NZ BEAR must ahve gotten the ecosystem running again. I’m now listed as a ‘flappy bird’ even though it still lists my daily hits as being around 36. (Shrug) My daily unique counts have been over 100 per day for a month, now. It’s an improvement, I suppose.

Christopher Hitchens has hita home run. Hitch does it so seldom anymore that it needs to be noted when he does. “A war fought with weapons of indiscriminate slaughter, and accompanied by racist rhetoric, with a conscript Army deployed against a highly evolved revolutionary movement is as different as could possibly be from a campaign […]

Boortz brings up a name from the past, among a string of names now connected with John Kerry: “Then, there’s Johnny Chung. Sound familiar? Same Johnny Chung that was at the center of the Clinton-Gore fund-raising scandals. In 1996, Kerry met with Chung, faxed a letter on his behalf to the SEC, and thanked him […]

The SUN over in the UK, is reporting this morning yet another change of heart for the Kerrys… Says this SUN: “Terry Polier pledged to vote for the super-rich Democrat after daughter Alex, 27, publicly insisted she had not had a fling with him.
