Isaac Schrodinger has a great chicken analogy.
John Fund has a follow up to the Yale admission story which makes me wonder what self-respecting person could possibly wish to contribute to such an institution. I particularly liked the last sentence in this quote:
Mr. Taylor feels put upon by Mr. Suvarov's denunciation. "I'm not sure how honest Surovov is being about how much research he did on us," Mr. Taylor told me. "Do I trust he or others aren't leaking to big donors over Welsh rarebits at Mory's [tavern] in a lame effort to discredit us? Hardly." His wife, Solange, also a Yale grad, asks: "Surovov can't judge the Taliban, but he can judge us?"Gus Van Horn has a long article on nuclear power and environmentalists, which he summarizes as follows:
The greens support nuclear power for exactly the opposite reason they should. Falsely equating nuclear power plants with Chernobyl, they see them as potentially very dangerous to mere human beings, but since saving "the world" is their priority over man, another such disaster is no big deal to them. Thinking they'll be vindicated in the end, then, they play right into the hands of capitalism on that issue. Unfortunately, their sudden love for nuclear power masks their real objective: to do to the coal and gas industries what they did to the nuclear power industry long ago.Steven Brockerman's link to anti-Semitic cartoons published in Islamic media seems to have disappeared, but you can still find examples here.
I just came across an older article on the CAC website entitled "Why a Free Man Fights" by Major Scott McDonald. For anyone who hasn't yet seen it, it's a great read.
