I find it so routine, the negative comments regarding the recent “Mirandizing” letter to the editor. The comments as to which TV news reporting agency is the most biased is a banal and moot point which will never be put to rest. As are the comments about watching Law & Order, et al.

That sweet hot button issue that can excite their party and (hopefully) win them the White House (or maybe the Senate).

Omar bin Laden, one of Osama's sons, is asking why the U.S. is not sanctioned for killing his father instead of capturing him and having him tried - perhaps a good question, one deserving of an answer.
“A Muslim jumps up on a table and shouts ‘Allah Akbar’ before shooting innocent bystanders. Democrats urge restraint and for us to not ‘rush to judgment.’ A heavy metal enthusiast starts shooting innocent bystanders in Tucson and Democrats immediately call for Sarah Palin’s head. Democrats have proven that they are not fit to lead Americans.”
As Veterans Day arrives, I find myself thinking of one of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. "Whosoever is not thankful to the people, is not thankful to Allah."

Hold a discussion on people's beliefs, and within minutes, someone will pipe up, "I'm spiritual, but I'm not religious." For some, spirituality is an open field, and religion represents fences and restrictions.
Fall has always held a special, complicated place in the hearts of men. It inspired Keats to wax about "mists and mellow fruitfulness." Fall is the season of harvest moons, spectacular botanical decay and bittersweet anticipation of the long winter to come.
