Glen Reynolds, of Instapundit fame, has a great article on Space Colonization and Star Trek.
Gotta admit, I'm guilty of believing its inevitable too.
May Day: A Wonderful time to Celebrate the Victory of Capitalism
Hillary Alert
I love this quote from a look at Hillary's impending book tour.

It's time for a heightened stage of security alert—for the nation's readers. Is there a color above red on that stupid Department of Homeland Security scale?

Yesterday came reports that on June 9, Hillary Clinton's memoir, Living History, will hit bookstores like so many Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

Couldn't have said it better. Great article.
Definitions: Evangelicalism.
No better source for a definition of what is meant by Evangelical Christian than The Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals. While Evangelicals are found in most denominations, they do represent a separate group within Christianity.
They are not one group, with one set of beliefs, but do hold certain beliefs in common. This site helps explain that.

Iraq and Terrorism: The Clinton Failures
The connections between Saddam and Al Quaeda continue to build, as does the Clinton ineptness at foreign policy.

Upon Working Sick
Seeing as how I'm taking a sick day d/t a little stomach flu, this article is most interesting.
And Just When I thought It Was Safe.....
Just when I thought I'd given my final words, along comes this by Stanley Kurtz. Excellent, required reading for all sides.

The Dixie Chicks Begin Their American Tour
Yes, I watched the interview on Thursday night. This pretty much sums up my feelings on the issue.
Iraq and Terrorism: Part Whatever
Another major find on the links between Saddam and Al Quaeda. They just keep building.

Another Santorum Perspective
I cannot begin to explain what a tough issue this is for me.
As an Evangelical Christian, much of what Rick Santorum said made perfect sense to me. He was in many ways speaking the language of Evangelicals, especially with his version of the old "hate the sin but love the sinner" line. But I think this requires translation for non-Evangelicals.
At some point, I'll try to do that. For now, Stanley Kurtz does a good job of putting some more perspective on the media spin that is keeping this issue going.

Iraq and Terrorism: Part Whatever
A great article from that bastion of the Great Right Wing Conspiracy, The New York Times.
A "secretive" religious group. It's only later we read this is the group that hosts the National Prayer Breakfast. Across the street is another "secretive" group renting to lawmakers. The Methodists.
And the Methodist Church's most prominent member? George W Bush.

This occurred a couple of weeks ago. I've kept the permanent link up at reader's request. I'll leave it up for a few more days.
Michael Kelly was one of my favorite columnists.
He has been, and will continue to be, deeply missed.
Atlantic Monthly Editor Killed in Iraq (washingtonpost.com)
Now, who's the extremist here?

The head of the National Organization for Women's Morris County chapter is opposing a double-murder charge in the Laci Peterson case, saying it could provide ammunition to the pro-life lobby.

"If this is murder, well, then any time a late-term fetus is aborted, they could call it murder," Morris County NOW President Mavra Stark said on Saturday.

Umm, Mavra, we already DO call it murder.

''The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.'' Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

A sad, sad commentary on Journalism. The title is appropriate, The News We Kept to Ourselves.
Would CNN have ever reported what they knew had the anti war protestors and the Democrats won the argument?
One thing is certain, the torture, rapes and children prisons would still be continuing today.
There is an insightful commentary by a Rush Limbaugh listener. Ummm, it isn't me, but I wish it were.
