"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."--C.S. Lewis

Bitching about taxes is a national pass-time in America because, by and large, people grasp the basic concept that one cannot tax oneself into prosperity. The Europeans on the other hand harbor no such misconception.:: Monday, April 24, 2006 ::

Ed Driscoll has the Flight 93 movie trailer posted. It looks very good and no, it's not "too soon."
Arch Texan and astute political observer Lou Minatti speculates on Tom Delay's successor. I wouldn't bet against him.

Uh oh. Apparently Kate McMillin has maligned lawyers [and "used car dealers, whorehouse piano players, pickpockets, dog catchers, meter readers, proctologists, and tax collectors..."]
Q&O's Dale Franks on Charlie Sheen:"Wow. There's so much stupidity here, it's hard to know where to begin."
Roger L. Simon on Katie Couric::: Tuesday, April 04, 2006 ::Determined somehow to prove that an anchorman (or woman) is still a relevant profession in 2006, CBS has named Katie Couric, in the words of their press release, "Anchor and Managing Editor of The CBS EVENING NEWS WITH KATIE COURIC." Note the nearly (or actually) pathological narcissism of the title, undoubtedly negotiated to death by a team of lawyers, which elevates Couric to equal billing to the news itself. It's almost as if CBS were acknowledging that this was not going to be the truth, but only the "world according to Couric," a field day for deconstructionists. The desperation in this choice and in the need to preserve the role of "Anchor" itself is palpable.
*Update: Hammorabi - in an April 4th post - is losing all faith. Assuming his negative assesment is generally accurate, the situation over there looks dire. Could it be the Americans are pulling back to test the determination of the Iraqi people? Hmmmm...
Yes, some idiot hijacked my blog but Blogger support has apparently restored it. Wow, that was wierd. Max is back.
