Looks like Tariq Aziz asked for asylum in Britain and a new identity. Thankfully, the British said no.
Hey, OneStat is telling me I'm getting page views not just from the United States, but from other countries as well. For instance, Estonia, Russia, France, Taiwan, The United Kingdom, and Canada. Well, welcome to my site, people-from-other-countries, and I hope you enjoy it!posted by d | 1:16 AM

This is an amazingly biased article. It's a shame they're making such a big deal about Santorums remarks. Like Jonah Goldberg pointed out (scroll down a little), Santorum isn't comparing gays to these other groups, he's simply making a slipery slope argument.posted by d | 6:59 PM
Bush's poll numbers in New York are above Hillary Clinton's. Good. I especially like the line "the state's own Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton." 'Cause she's a New Yorker.....yeah......I remember now.....I had completely forgotten that little fact.posted by d | 6:51 PM
The prosecutors in the Moussaoui case are looking at a "fifth plane" theory, in which Moussaoui was meaning to crash a plane into the White House. It's an interesting theory.posted by d | 6:44 PM
Interesting article here about embryo adoption.
This is an interesting article about discrimination against Christian groups at schools. Lot's of high schools (mine included) actually forbid the use of the term "Easter" in public. It's that kind of insanity that marginalizes the left.posted by d | 6:19 PM
Gary Aldrich has something interesting on Townhall as well. It's a good article about Take Your Daughters to Work Day, and his proposal for Teach Your Daughters to Shoot Day.
Jonah Goldberg has a good article on the difference between a thing being legal and a thing being constitutional. He makes good points about Santorum's remarks, which I think need to be looked at more closely before any serious judgements are passed against him.posted by d | 6:06 PM
A judge has ruled that Harry Potter books should be on the regular shelves of a school library. Good. Personally, I don't see the big problem with Harry Potter. I mean, far more depraved and evil books are sitting right there in the open in any school library. The Harry Potter books aren't even that bad. I think the main problem was the authors use of the term "witch." But really, the powers these witches and wizards have is no different from the powers the Jedi have in Star Wars or any number of fictional characters have.posted by d | 5:59 PM
This isn't really a surprise Families benefit from marriage. It's so logical, but it has been questioned quite a bit. Well, these are some good points.posted by d | 5:55 PM

Jay Nordlinger's Impromptus are always worth looking at. I especially like this letter he got (with apologies to Mr. Nordlinger for taking it):
"Dear Jay: About the 'living Constitution': I heard Justice Thomas speak several years ago at the Economics Club of Indianapolis. During the Q&A, the justice was asked to respond to Al Gore's assertion that the Constitution is a living, breathing document. Thomas then retrieved from his breast pocket a copy of the Constitution to which he had referred during his prepared remarks, looked it over, leaned forward to the microphone, and said, 'My copy is inanimate.' After a short pause, he leaned forward again and said, 'Next question, please."
That's hilarious. posted by d | 9:12 PM
Well, they've got Tariq Aziz. That's a good thing. He can most likely provide a great deal of information, if he is at all cooperative.posted by d | 4:45 PM

Andrew Suttaford has a good article on TV Turnoff week. Just another attempt to control our lives. TV is not a bad or good thing..... anything can be on TV, and the important thing is to only watch what's good....I think it's better to spend three hourse watching discovery Civilization than to spend those hours reading Mein Kampf.posted by d | 5:49 PM

Pro-infanticide people are looking to get the double murder charges dropped in the Peterson case. That's absolutely disgusting.posted by d | 10:34 PM
