Remember when Scott Brown was chastised for questioning another type of Indian candidate? He was uniformly raked over the coals by the media. When the candidate is a Republican however, their ethnicity and race are considered worthy of attack. Case in point, Annie Gowen of the Washington Post: From Piyush to Bobby: How does…

I saw the film “Yankee Doodle Dandy” on TV close to 30 times when I was a child. Loved it, and in particular loved the idea that James Cagney (whom I already knew as a tough old gangster from other movies) could dance. His dancing fascinated me because it was so…

I have run the video below a number of times, starting on July 4, 2012. It’s a video of Victory over Japan (VJ) Day, August 14, 1945. For some reason, it seems so appropriate to play on July 4. It was forwarded to me by reader TowsonLawyer, who wrote: Just in time for the…

Two recent articles document the multiple American capitulations to Iran in pursuit of a nuclear deal.
