No honor or morality. Too conservative for the NFL. Asking and telling. The mediocre man in the White House.

JUST ANOTHER BIT OF ROAD-KILL
Re: Jeffrey Lord’s Who Is DeMaurice Smith?:
Anyone who has been following the approach of the renegotiation
of the Collective Bargaining Agreement in the NFL and watching
Mr. Smith’s gently escalating pusillanimity can see the hard seas
approach for “America’s Game” one way or another. It is a safe
bet that the conclusion of those CBA negotiations will seal Mr.
Lord’s conclusion of the NFL as just another bit of road-kill in
the seizure of American public institutions. I wonder if the
lords of the NFL (Commissioner, owners, players) are conversant
with the effects of the Major League Baseball strike.

A RATHER ORDINARY MAN
Re: Andrew Wilson’s A Little Bit of Economics:
Mr. Wilson’s very revealing words about Obama confirm, I believe, my opinion of Obama. That is he is neither intellectually nor emotionally equipped for the position where he finds himself. He masks the insecurities inherent in his rather unusual history, by this surface self-importance and apparent extreme confidence in himself. I believe we can all identify with his situation since probably none of us have the ideal background we would write or create if we could.
We, however, soldier on as best we can but we do not have the
future of Western Civilization on our shoulders as this quite
unusual and at the same time rather ordinary man in mental
capacity does. His situation is further complicated by having to
deal with a wife who has issues of her own. These include a
distaste for her affirmative action-provided Princeton education
and apparently a great deal of animosity for Western
Civilization, witness her influence over her husband’s decision
to refuse Great Britain’s gift of the Churchill bust. Strange
days indeed but every generation has probably thought the same.
But at least Christians know this world is not all there

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?
