I’m a former (two-time) resident of the D.C. area and expect to return eventually to Federal employment there. (I’m in grad school right now, working towards a Master’s.)
I was last in the D.C. area in 1987; even before then, I strongly recommended that prospective visitors avoid the place until the Fall — late October in Washington can be lovely — or, better still, wait until cold weather before or after school holidays.p>I greatly enjoyed Triumph , and hope to use it some day as the text for a Church history class. It’s the best work on Church history that this adult convert has ever seen. br> — Elizabeth Whitaker /p>
Mr. Crocker: Come on out to the West, but hold the horse. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the Hippos have arrived here as well. And look out! They wield their posteriors to the barcolounger of a 3 ton SUV in most cases. So the species we have out here is much more deadly when aroused. It’s also the only carriage to which they will fit.
We suffer through 1-2 hour commutes on roads built during Lyndon Johnson’s largess. Only to be exacerbated by L.A. copycat high speed chases just before the rush hour. Watching some maniac attempt a 3-lane change to get to the airport with only prayer beads for guidance.
The ole saw about how many Texas Rangers it takes to stop a riot does not apply to rush hour — they are not to be seen. Which gives rise to the term the “Wild West” in modern terms. Today the equalizer is not the number of cylinders in your gun but the number under the hood of your vehicle.
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?
