Blogging has been very light this weekend, because my darling bride and I are in a major kitchen renovation project, so I might have a bit less commentary on this week’s From Around the Blogroll.
Robert Stacey Stacy McCain has Meet @BridgetteDunlap, Fordham’s Campus Commissar of ‘Human Rights’. The lovely Dr Dunlap seems to be anything but willing to listen to other people — she forced the College Republicans to withdraw an invitation to An Coulter — and is basically a Sandra Fluke-type liberal, but she is a professor at Fordham University, a Catholic college run by the Jesuits. Dr Dunlap may be an idiot, but the fault lays with the Jesuit administration which hired her in the first place.
Sister Toldjah has one of the most heartwarming stories so far in 2013, Patriotic Asheboro middle school students give injured veteran a gift he’ll never forget.
Kate at The Victory Girls has a photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s courageous response to the meteor explosion over his country.
William Teach, whose “If All You See” series this week reflects our version of Rule 5 blogging, tells us how the Silver State is going to protect the people.
JD noted on Patterico’s Pontifications that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks it is beneath the dignity of Congress to have their pay cut due to the sequester that they passed into law.
L D Jackson notes Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), another idiot who doesn’t think we have a spending problem. This is why your Editor is so opposed to higher taxes to close the deficit, because he knows, with Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Tom Harkin, more tax revenue just means more spending, not doing anything really radical like trying to balance the budget.
William Jacobson on Le*gal In*sur*rec*tion noted that The New York Times doesn’t like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). No, they’d much rather have a go-along-to-get-along Republican, rather than one who actually supports the things on which he campaigned for office in the first place.
Donald Douglas noted that, despite the feminists’ outcries, women are increasingly the purchasers of firearms.
Hube discusses one of the best Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes. I thought that the episode was OK, but not one of the top five. And I’d argue that Star Trek: Deep Space 9 was the best of the several Trek series.
