The first gay marriage in North Carolina was to...

Two dudes who are deputy sheriffs! Our deliverance is now upon us. Instead of the cops beating the hell out of you in the future, perhaps you have pressed flowers and interior decorating help on the horizon!

Things just keep getting better!

Gay marriage? If you are against it what is the problem?

Look here, if you are against gay marriage then the objective should be to stop gay people from having sex. Now, if you think about it for one moment, is there any better way to get people to stop having sex than to let them get married?

Moreover, for all of us with children with an alternative lifestyle, one good result of this process is that when my step daughter soon marries her life partner of 14 years, since there are two girls involved, I only have half the bill. Guess I need to brush up on my moves for the Hokie Pokie.

R.I.P Fouad Ajami

It is with great sadness that Fouad Ajami has passed on at age 68 of prostate cancer. He was a brilliant mind and a student of the venerable Bernard Lewis. He saw the whole Mideast saga for the cruelty and waste that it is. And like Ayaan Hirsi Ali had the guts to say it.

ISIS and their buddies want to take the world back to the seventh century...and I am not going.

The world is not as nice a place with the passing of this incredible scholar. Ignore his writings as you dare.

One does not have to go very far in digging around to have Tea Party sympathies. If you look at the movement now afoot to re-write the first amendment, pushed by Senators Schumer and Udall, you don't need to wonder who the extremists are. What a great idea. Let Congress regulate political speech. God save us.

We need a new national sense of shame and we should start with the Schmuck from New York.
