Sad. The 28 year-old man she allegedly met is said to have
killed himself as police approached his house. They’ve yet to
release his name.
Midland County Sheriff Jerry Nielsen said Thursday that the body
found in Edenville Township belongs to Leigh Swanson, who

Back in August, The Nation was singing Mike
Huckabee’s praises. I believe that was when he was pushing his
whole kinder, gentler talk radio shtick: “Mike Huckabee is an
unusual creature in American politics: a civilized social
conservative”. That’s right, The Nation – it doesn’t get
any more left...
Friend Ford O’Connell has a worthwhile item up
over that The Hill’s Pundit Blog: Dems
dishonest in ‘fiscal cliff’ dealings. Still, technically
speaking, there is no ‘fiscal cliff’. America isn’t going to
suddenly disappear, or drop out of sight, somehow.
If you told the average voter Washington, D.C. was heading off a
cliff, they’d probably offer to...
Using Simon Cowell’s recent SWATting as a news peg, Chris Lee
and Richard Winton have a front-page story at the L.A. Times about
the phenomenon of SWATting. The story focuses on the recent rash of
celebrity SWATtings in Los Angeles, rather than the politically

Crazy baby names are nothing new. In fact, in recent years
they’ve become endemic in our culture, with entire websites devoted
to bad baby names, deliberate misspellings masquerading as parental
“creativity,” and celebrities who go way way past “unusual”
and into “Wait. What?” territory (like actor Jason Lee, who named
Only for the rich, of course. For now. But they all

increased revenues through taxes and issues get put on the table,
the numbers, not principle, will take over.
Along with that, the very uncertainty they’ll create with the
There’s video from Cairo at link. Obama needs to own this. He
has empowered Israel’s and America’s enemies for decades. It may
not be topical now but, God forbid, given potential developments
between now and 2016, this could prove to be critical by the time
we get to election 2016.
Odds are the GOP will eventually begin clamoring for
an amnesty as much as the Democrats, they’ll pass it, then
Democrats will play the same game they have for years,
marginalizing the GOP among a bunch of new voters and the GOP will
be resigned to the wilderness nationally for years.
Rinse and repeat. Any questions?
I found myself wondering why, or how one family could come to
dominate a political party so as to potentially include 3
presidential contenders within a few short decades. Somehow I think
it’s related to a party that’s without strong principles and
ideals, or at least lacking the willingness to...
I can’t even bring myself to think about what kind of a life

And there will be plenty more to come, I mean, go. Just give it time.
