I stole this from Postmodern Conservative; it’s great

Sometimes, I really like Vermont

Sure, it’s an incredibly liberal state, but it remains rural, has few Wal-Marts, and not many big chains at all. And now, this. They make some good brew in the land of green mountains, you know.

Running a few days behind

William Frank Buckley, Jr., 24 November 1925 – 27 February 2008, requiescat in pace. Having taken up the task of writing a brief piece of him for the Terrapin Times, I likely will have a further post or two on Bill Buckley in the near future.

Should such need ever arise, I gladly would plagiarize him: “I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.”

Thank you, Pope Benedict XVI!

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) released a statement on February 29 saying that a baptism “in the name of the Creator, and of the Redeemer, and of the Sanctifier,” is not a valid Christian sacrament.Nice to see the Vatican taking a firm stand against the canard suggesting that our equality in the eyes of God can be so extremely extended as to replace the words of Christ with the words of Gloria Steinem.

Who pays for it?

BOSTON – A killer who sued to have a sex change claims her body is becoming more masculine again because she’s being denied treatment in prison as she awaits a ruling in her bid for the surgery. The Department of Correction’s spending fifty-two thousand dollars on this is absurd. I want to know if the taxpayers are footing the bill for Kosilek’s treatments. That would be the truly cruel and unusual punishment, giving up income to pay for a wholly unnecessary treatment for a murderer.

News that warms my heart’s cockles

Home Depot experiences first annual sales drop.

Perhaps, now, I shall vote for Senator Obama

If this man supports him, ought I not to do the same?
