Here we have Tom Gray-Liberty Dad explaining how Harry Potter relates to the crisis in Iraq, and floating the idea that the high-freedom less-protection method we are using in Iraq may be a neccessary goad to get the Iraqi's to step up to the plate, and defend themselves.
Here Dean Esmay explains that Conservatism Won So It Died, But Its Feeling Fine.
The Reverend Donald Sensing, a fellow Tennessean, explains how to give a speech to Indra Nooyi of Pepsico. She just recently went out of her way to tell a bunch of grads not to be "ugly Americans" while demonstrating her own point with a ham-handed quality in her own speech. She encouraged Americans to be wary of giving the middle finger to the world. Now its true that some, few Americans can be outright jerks, and that reminders to do right are often useful, but there does pass a point where it becomes an accusation more than helpful advice. And one is wise to balance helpful advice with more positive imagery.
I don't know. I'm not that upset with her, but then I'm pretty laid-back. On the other hand, I'm not that impressed with her either. And the thought that this lady makes 5.5 million dollars a year working for Pepsi does not inspire confidence in Pepsico's corporate management.
