In the news: Amnesty, Churchill, Espionage

The report on Colorado professor Churchill is out. There is no question of his serious academic malfeasance but there is a split about whether it warrants dismissal or just suspension. One of the primary factors that seems to bother people is the Churchill was singled out, subject to a jihad of the wacko right, and therefore shouldn’t be considered harshly. Perhaps those with this view should instead start to demand that professors who have been found to deliberately engage in plagarism and poor scholarship should all be dismissed?

The Mexican problem continues to broil. A question for those who think any accomodation for the illegal immigrants currently in the US is amnesty is what they think the punishment should be. Apparently fines and assimilation demonstration are not punishment enough for them.

Powerline references an important paper regarding the legal issues in the Iraq war but its findings and analysis are, of course, out of hand by those who have already decided what must be. Winds of Change has a pretty good rundown on the company these folks keep and the positions they take. Mark Steyn highlights the two templates for terrorism in use by the media that contradict each other. And now the domestic spying number mining story is beginning to loose legs anyway as its perpetrators deny any involvement.

Can’t anyone think straight?
