“That’s alright, I think I’ve got an extra one.”
“Mr. Newman, are we almost there? I’m getting tired.”
“No, we’re not almost there. How are you guys going to play manhunt if you can’t climb a little mountain?”
“This isn’t little. It’s huge.”
“Well, wait until you see the one we’re going to climb tomorrow.”
Even as they spoke, however, the switchback they were ascending emerged from out of the trees, unfolding a broad view of the valley below.
“Wow, look how far we climbed already! Is that the truck down there?
“It sure looks like it,” said Newman.
“Wow, it’s so small. Wouldn’t you love to be a bird and go flying off this cliff?”
“Hang-gliding! Let’s do it.”
“My cousin does it. He says it’s neat.”
“Can we do hang-gliding next time, Mr. Newman?”
“I’m not so sure. I don’t know much about it.” In fact, Newman knew several people who had broken multiple bones hang-gliding and was not eager to introduce them to it. “Well, we don’t have far to go, guys. Our campsite is right up ahead.”

“Is this where we’re gonna sleep?”
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?
