Poor Vesa Toskala...

This is what he'll be remembered for.

In the interest of fairness...

As a general rule I'm pretty tough on Democrats in general and Nancy Pelosi specifically. It's criticism that I think is more than deserved. While I think I do a fair job of avoiding over the top rhetoric (ala Ann Coulter), a fair criticism of me is that tend to overlook good deeds on the left side of the political spectrum. Fair enough.

The simple truth is that there is no American elected official who has been a more implacable foe of the communist government in Beijing than Nancy Pelosi...and no one has been a better friend to Tibet. She deserves all of our thanks.

Al Qaeda Recruiter Blues.

The truth is this. The al Qaeda volunteers have long been enticed by the prospect of killing American soldiers. That rarely happens, and survivor accounts always make that point, and the fact that al Qaeda is mostly killing Iraqis. Last year, most of the Sunni Arabs turned on al Qaeda, and this has been most difficult for the al Qaeda recruiters to deal with.
