Entry Img

The One That Got Away? TV personality Brian Williams is enduring some unwanted fame as the onion is peeled, partly by him, over his story of being aboard a US military helicopter under fire in the Iraq war in 2003. Williams has apparently said in the past, including on the Letterman show, that he was […]

Winning: Battle NOLA @ 200 Years

Entry Img

Seesaw on the Mississippi War consists of two basic options: defense or offense. The middle ground is the perilous transition between the two, mastered only by the truly expert.

Politics and Patriotism: Torture, Religion & Truth

Entry Img

This week the US Senate released a report detailing CIA abuses related to torture and other mistreatment of detainees. Partisan lines are drawn around the issue of the disclosure of the report where some suggest that disclosure is un-American and aiding the enemy. Suddenly it’s patriotic to be pro-torture and anti-truth. Tim McVeigh would be […]

Our American Terrorists

Entry Img

Eric Frien, cold warrior Eastern bloc stand-in and accused cop killer was finally apprehended after weeks on the run in northeastern Pennsylvania. It seems agreed that he disliked the federal government with some passion and that he also developed a deadly grudge against police. Those traits combined with the fact that he was living at […]

Film: When “D” Stands for Dog

Entry Img

History as Pop-Up: Imax “D-Day Normandy 1944″ Winston would be appalled. After all, it was he who said, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.” His poetic turn of phrase in praise of the RAF victory during the Battle of Britain, indeed anything even remotely approaching it, is sorely missing in […]

The left's heads are exploding early.....all the snow this winter has caused a lot of pent up anxiety. Hopefully you don't subscribe to MSNBC's Jamilah Lemieux, who thinks that those who listen to country music are evil racists.....just because Rafael said he likes a little country music....SMH
