HOW RADICAL IS BARACK OBAMA?

Health insurance destroys individualism? I don't get it.

THE WEBSITE THAT STARTED IT ALL - STRANGE BUT TRUE

I've been asking the commentariat to provide an explanation or link that demonstrates that the IMs are genuine. So far, no one has answered that question, or even acknowledged it.

WHY COOLER HEADS MUST PREVAIL ON IRAN

Rick,
thoughtful analysis, but I think you might be guilty of static scoring. Yes, the "insurgents" are making Iraq more expensive than might have been initially anticipated, but what would have been the costs of inaction? War is always the least worse of two bad options. How does these ~10,000 innocent Iraqis killed by terrorists compared with the Butcher of Bagdad's average annual toll? (20,000-50,000) We were spending $30 billion a year enforcing "no-fly" zones, how much more would we have spent to keep Saddam properly "contained"?
Will military action against Iran be really, really expensive? Yes.
Will it cause massive fighting, and a defeat in Iraq? Possibly, but could a nuclear armed Iran cause massive fighting and a defeat in Iraq? If their behavior right now (developing nukes, supporting terrorists, aiding fighters in Iraq) is not sufficient to overcome the costs of confronting them when they DON'T have nukes, how high will the bar be when they DO have nukes? They can make things dicey in Iraq if we bomb their nuclear facilities, but once they have nukes, there is nothing to keep them from driving us out of Iraq anyway.

"DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE LOVE OF GOD GOES?"

Wonderful posting. I've been intrigued by that song for more than a year, so much that I recently visited Whitefish Point and wrote about the line "does anyone know where the love of God goes" (http://blogs.pioneerlocal.com/religion). I appreciate the comparison to other disaster songs and their main elements. Just the intro chords to this Lightfoot masterpiece gives me chills, more so now that I've been there.
