No Boy Left Behind

March 26th, 2009, No Comments

This column by Kathleen Parker is indicative of the impoverished intellectual landscape that President Obama is facing as he gears up to alter the course of our disastrous history. I believe the platform was built on the concept of ‘change’. This must be staunchly resisted by conservatives for fear of having to share their rung […]

Perverse Journalistic Myopia

March 22nd, 2009, No Comments

I guess I’m not really through, after all, with David Brooks. Re: NY Times OpEd, “Perverse Cosmic Myopia” by David Brooks To the Editor, Perhaps Brooks believes his glasses are for a condition of ‘far-sightedness’.
