Jason over at Texas Rainmaker does a great job of dissecting all of the liberal whacko furor over the upcoming ABC mini-series “The Path to 9/11”.
What’s even more appalling is that this television program is the Web Site top issue over at the Democratic National Committee’s website. I missed the Commandment in the Book of Exodus that said “Thou shalt not criticize Clinton”, I guess.
I am sorry more than ever that I voted for that sleazy, lying, megalomaniac, self-centered, add-your-own-insult-here ex-President in 1992. Thank God I had my conservative awakening a few years later!
Way back when I raised my right hand and said, “I do solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign or buy gabapentin 300mg capsules domestic…”, I should think that the deplorable, no make that treasonous group calling themselves “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” certainly qualifies as the latter.
I’m all for free speech, but free speech doesn’t include sedition.
Thanks to Sister Toldjah for pointing them out.
Fans of the Dortmunder series by Donald Westlake will be familiar with the “Travel by Extradition” approach used by one of Dortmunder’s associates. One must wonder if that was John Mark Karr’s aim, especially since he was in Thailand wanted on local charges, where the system of justice and punishment is more severe than the normal state here.
By the way, how come he’s known as “John Mark Karr”? I thought only confirmed murderers/assassins/serial killers had three names. 😉
Thanks to Michelle Malkin for turning me onto this. I have registered Their Finest Hour with The 2,996 Project – a blogosphere effort to provide individual memorials on the fifth anniversary of 9/11 for each and every victim of that day’s Islamofascist barbarism.
My honoree is Gregory M. Stajk, a Firefighter with Ladder Company 13, FDNY. He perished at the World Trade Center.
If you are interested, and there are still slots available, please register for this effort. I was blogger 2,536 to register, so I think it’s safe to say that all 2,996 will be memorialized, with only 460 left…
So ends the Boston Massacre 2006:

Yankees win, Yankees win, ttttthhhhheeee YANKEES WIN!
12-4 & 14-11 yesterday, 13-5 today. Three down, two to go. Considering how the Yankees have been able to work over the Boston bullpen, I wouldn’t bet against the five game sweep.
One good item from the game was there was a Peter Gammons sighting – glad to hear he’s well on the mend.
…I must link! Scott Johnston over at Power Line uses Winston Churchill in drawing the parallels between the recent Israeli/Hezbollah “cease fire” and Munich 1938 in this posting.
Matt Drudge links to this story from the UK (warning: non-work friendly or kid-safe image on the page) about a woman sitting naked with a dead pig for four hours and calling it “art”, courtesy of the taxpayers. I think I’ll go home tonight, dump all my garbage on the front lawn, sit in the middle of it (sorry, no nudity), call it “performance art” and then see if I can get a grant to fund it.
Way back in the day when I applied to the National Endowment for the Humanities for a grant for my historical research into steel industry technological innovations, I think I got rejected before the ink was dry on my application. Perhaps I’d have had a better chance at approval if my application wanted to research something like “lack of steel industry innovation leading to increased prostitution and adult businesses in steel towns, including pictures thereof“. Yeah, that would’ve been a shoo-in for a grant.
Call me one of those heartless conservatives if you want, but the whackos who want to view junk like this should pay for it directly instead of relying on the state (whichever or wherever) to sponsor their depravity.
This news item from CNN about an airport in West Virginia being closed because two bottles of liquid in a Pakstani woman’s carry on bag tested positive for explosives shouldn’t be a surprise – assuming that the contents are in fact dangerous. Remember, at least some of the 9/11 terrorists started their day of infamy in small regional airports where security screening is assumed to be less strict. Another less-dry run? Perhaps the suspect is a mule, and was given the stuff by someone else with nefarious purposes.
Common sense says that if a terrorist or terrorists are going to try and pull their crap, they’re not going to try to get through security at JFK – they’ll use a smaller airport and connect. Once you’re on a flight and through security, you’re pretty much free and clear.
Frankly, I’m surprised that the TSA found it. In my post-9/11 air travels, I’ve found the TSA screeners less than a confidence-building presence.
Ground has been broken for the new home of my beloved New York Yankees. For the longest time, I was completely opposed to the Bronx Bombers ever leaving “the House that Ruth Built.” Once I had been to several of the newer ballparks, including what many say the finest of the new, PNC Park, I started coming around to reality. Given the artist’s impressions of what the new park will look like, all I can say is “PLAY BALL!”
I’ll never forget the current Yankee Stadium. From the first game I went to (don’t remember much, except Thurman Munson hit two home runs), to Mattingly and Winfield, to the greatest standing ovations for Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio on Old Timers’ Days, it’s been the place for baseball in my mind.
Here’s to what could someday be known as “the House that Jeter, A-Rod, and Rivera Built”. See you at the ballpark in 2009!
