I won’t try to speak for the guy in Florida arranging for the very public burning of the Koran. Nor, by the same token, will I attempt to speak for the  foreign-funded groups attempting to put a Mosque at or near Ground Zero. Nor, in fact will I try to defend either. They stand or […]

There’s a  number of people last night heaping praise on Obama’s speech at Ft Hood yesterday.  Predictably,  Marc Armbinder is one of them: Today, at Ft. Hood. I guarantee: they’ll be teaching this one in rhetoric classes. It was that good. My gloss won’t do it justice. Yes, I’m having a Chris Matthews-chill-running-up-my-leg moment, but […]

Safa Rigby had expected to hear her husband’s voice when the phone rang one morning. Instead, the caller didn’t even bother to say hello. “You think you know your husband. […]
