Given the frequency with which this kind of ‘error’ pops up, I cannot help but wonder, if that isn’t precisely the magazine’s normal standards. As a matter of fact, the entire of the New York Times can be placed in the same category, rather easily. That may seem a brash statement, but consider; had it not been for LifeSiteNews, this situation would not have come to light at all. Given that point, how won the world can we trust the New York Times historically, not just in the articles of producing today? The answer, if we are fair, is that we cannot.

Interesting post over at Insta-Glenn’s place. Normally, I’d not bother; his usually ARE at least of some level of interest, and he gets basically all the links I’ll EVER get, in one day, and thereby doesn’t need the help. In this case, though, I think he’s hit on something that’s going to need some additional […]

There is nothing, to my mind, that better demonstrates that the American left has lost its collectivist mind, than the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the execution of Saddam Hussein.  One would think, after reading their collective whining that US law enforcers had grabbed Howard Dean, and executed him, because he was giving George […]

UNder an AP headline reading: At Least 80 Iraqis Killed in Post-Saddam Execution Violence …note a picture of gunmen toting weapons in an undated picture taken, apparently in Baqouba.  The image of increased violence thus seared, seared, mind you… into our brains…. (With a nod to John Kerry) ….we read the actual story… BAGHDAD AP- […]

Bits Notes: I had written this last night, but never transmitted it. Oops.  I had planned to make a run to someplace special today.  The reason is clear enough if one looks at the calendar; this is the only day this month where I have both a free day, and I’m not required to be […]

Back on 16 December, I commented on Mrs. Pelosi’s planned four day coronation,   Rather then spending the public’s time in excessive celebration, Mrs. should be attending to draining her swamp. In the previous congress, when a republican congressman, Mark Foley, admited to unethical behavior, then Speaker Denny Hasert persuaded Foley to resign.   In the Hill, Jonathan E. […]

Just shut up. You’ve just lost any credibility you might have had. If human rights are your bread and butter… how can you leap to the defense of one who so clearly was in violation of them?

As I indicated last evening, I’m not overly happy, on an instinctive level, with the amount of attention being paid to the death of Saddam Hussein, thinking that it gives the man far more attention than he deserves.  From my personal vantage point, it was almost an anti climax, something that we all knew was […]

(H/T photo: Hitch Corner ) Well it takes all kinds Thanks to our friends to the North for reporting this. Whlle the Unverse may be finite, three things know no bounds: human ignorance, the arrogance of liberals in judge shopping and the audacity of judges.  Of the later two.

By the time most of you read this, that Bastard of Baghdad will have been executed for his crimes against humanity, and specifically his fellow Iraqis.  If I was to take a cue from the mainstream news services, I would be doing wall to wall coverage of this guy’s every breath between now and 10:00 […]
