There are so many events unfolding around us this week that it’s difficult to process them, let alone put words to them. There’s the death of an American president, the outpouring of love, vitriol and pointless complaining (registration required) regarding his memory and there will be the glorious send-off later this week, for which the great world leaders of the past and present will arrive in Washington to demonstrate their esteem. It will be incredible to see Mikhail Gorbachev there.
Then there was the commemoration of the sacrifices made in the battle against twentieth-century tyranny.
Then there’s the gathering of the world’s Big Dogs—the G8 conference—at Sea Island, Georgia, near Savannah.
Then the UN Security Council does right by Iraq, unanimously adopting the US-UK resolution to end the occupation on June 30, keep Coalition forces there for security purposes, while the US gives a resounding NFW to the Franco-German attempt to allow the UN to get its grimy mitts on the American Armed Forces.
Then the ACLU is at it again, with its, ahem, crusade against all things Christian that may appear near anything governmental (registration required), and with three members of LA County Board of Supervisors to back the organization up. Talk radio show host Dennis Prager—who is Jewish--lead a downtown LA protest today against the effort. Fewer heathen here than the ACLU counted on, I guess.
Whew! I know there’s more, but my neck hurts.
