I’m sorry if I’m slow off the mark with this criticism, but I agree wholeheartedly with James Bowman’s review of Buffalo Soldiers.
Billed as a satire of the U.S. military, it’s directed by an Australian, Gregor Jordan, and stars a New Zealander, Anna Paquin. Its other star, Joaquin Phoenix, is one of a Hollywood dynasty and the only thing its principal supporting actor “Mister” Ed Harris has ever shot off is his mouth, over his views on George W. Bush. Mister Ed has made a fortune from playing real American heroes like John Glenn and Gene Kranz, Flight Controller of Apollo 13. I sincerely hope that if, from now on, he ever approaches any American who has distinguished themselves in public service with a view to portraying them they will decline his offer.
Oh, and any stockholder in General Motors who was disgusted by Harris’s views on the President should know that their money was used to pay him to appear in a series of ads for their corporation’s UK arm, Vauxhall Motors, earlier this year. Mister Ed might not be a Republican, but like all good liberals he knows the value of a buck.p>Best regards to all at “The Prowler.” br> — Martin Kelly br> Glasgow, Scotland /p> p> GIVE ME MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE br> Re: R.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
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?
