So here is the case of a 19-year-old high school football star, Jeremy Brent, in North Texas who is being arrested for having consensual sex with a 15-year-old. Okay, he should not have had sex with a 15-year-old. But if you could make a list of every 19-year-old and 15-year-old who have had sex in [...]

Many thanks from America to Mexico:
SAN ANTONIO – A relief team from the Mexican army is returning home after spending nearly three weeks in Texas helping with hurricane relief.
The nearly 200 soldiers shook hands with dignitaries during a San Antonio ceremony of appreciation. They’re expected to leave for Mexico City early Tuesday, after helping [...]
Why is it that the far left (and even frequently the moderate left) thrives in a state of hysteria? Dennis Prager discusses this today:
If you want to understand the Left, the best place to start is with an understanding of hysteria. Leading leftists either use hysteria as a political tactic or are actually hysterics.
Take almost [...]
No sweat. This guy in Louisiana built his house right.
Okay, I finally broke down and read a column by Paul Krugman. I have seen him on TV and have read quotes from him here and there at blogsites. So I decided to see what kind of things he might come up with in a full length, uninterrupted column. I picked one he wrote this [...]
One of the anti-war folks favorite rants is that the Bush administration, and the military planners, should never have disbanded the Iraqi army after the invasion of Iraq. StrategyPage says this today (via Instapundit):
American casualty rates for September are less than what they were the last few months. Attacks on infrastructure (including oil facilities) and [...]

I have a little joke for you today that I received from a liberal friend:
How do you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans and Southern Republicans?
The answer can be found by posing the following question:
You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two [...]
Matt Yglesias is blogging about how the U.S. is not friendly enough to unions. I posted this comment at his site:
Face it, no private employer wants to sign union contracts with employees. Unions artificially force wages and benefits above the market rates and introduce inflexibility into the workplace.
Since no employers want them, why do they [...]
It’s no accident that unions have shrunk. The clumsy, legalistic mechanism of the Wagner Act–where seniority rules and firing incompetents requires elaborate negotiation–turns out to be a good way to fail to keep up in modern, technology-driven capitalism. President Clinton’s Labor Secretary, Robert Reich, once famously said that “The jury is still out on [...]
My daughter, who lives on the Texas coast, arrived home today. She made it through the big traffic jam and drove all the way to north Texas. Now we have to wait and see if she has any place to go back to.
She said as far north as Waco the road was full of cars [...]
This is reprehensible (hat tip PeakTalk):
The men with the poison-filled syringe arrived two days before Li Juan’s due date. They pinned her down on a bed in a local clinic, she says, and drove the needle into her abdomen until it entered the 9-month-old fetus. “At first, I could feel my child kicking a lot,” [...]
