I enjoyed Hunter Baker’s piece very much. In his column, Mr. Gelernter seems to ramble on attempting to find some justification for not using the term Nazi in this debate. I would like to interject my opinion into the discussion of Dr. Dobson’s terminology.
I have seen a number of Dr. Dobson’s appearances, both prepared statements and interviews, it is difficult to avoid seeing the man in recent years.

My only point is that the good Doctor used the terminology in a calculated manner. He made it clear that he sees no middle ground on this issue. He deems it evil, as evil as anything done by the Nazis in the name of science. It seems that some people are uncomfortable with that. br> — Michael Tobias br> Ft.

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?
