Dave Shiflett replies: The line D. Derow quoted in her letter was not my line, but from Ms. Dowd’s column: “….all those aggressive female primates, after a busy day of dominating their jungle, were primed for sex, not for the withholding of it.” She should complain to Dowd, not me.p> LADY CYNTHIA br> Re: John Corry’s Cynthia McKinney in the Twilight Zone : /p> p>Good article, I came across it on Free Republic and followed the link here. Just one thing I’d like to complain about, though, is the word “gentlewoman.” This and “gentlelady” are PC creations to avoid using the proper term, “lady.” The female counterpart to “gentleman” is “lady.” That’s all. br> — Jay Howell br> Dunedin, FL /p>
I liked John Corry’s piece, though I was a little surprised at his mention of blasting Kofi Annan as evidence of her being a loose cannon (“…McKinney, ever the loose cannon, denounced the award as ‘an insult to the millions that died at the hand of the U.N. in recent years.’”) McKinney’s a nut, no question here (and her dad, who is a longtime Georgia state legislator, is even kookier). But she was right about Kofi Annan, who as much as anyone in the international community (even more than Clinton), is responsible for doing absolutely nothing to stop the slaughter in Rwanda. One could even make a case that, in many ways, he abetted it. For Annan to win the Nobel Peace Prize is every bit as outrageous as Arafat. It’s an Orwellian world we live in.p>Frankly, the real surprise is that McKinney is right on that point. br> — unsigned

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
