    CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker delivered a passionate defense of Democratic efforts to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, insisting it's about love of country. "Being asked to pay your fair share isn't class warfare. It's patriotism," Booker said, disputing an attack line often mentioned by Mitt Romney and his GOP allies. Everyone, Booker argued, must pay their "fair share" at a time when the country is facing the enormous burden of paying down debts incurred by two wars.

    As we come to the Ninth Commandment, we again arrive in disputed territory. As you will recall, the Ten Commandments can be and have been split up differently so as to yield ten and not eleven commandments. Some Protestants break apart the First Commandment (yielding what I call the 1.5 Commandment against graven images). The Catholic tradition, in contrast, leaves the First Commandment whole and breaks apart the following text:   You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that...

    Self-vanity
    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's_______. You fill in the blank. These are the words that much of western civilization's legal and financial systems have been founded upon for centuries. You are expected to go out and toil for what you desire, not expect to have it taken from someone else and given to you. The idea is that it is fundamentally immoral to desire to take what your neighbor owns for yourself. The problem is that once envy and jealously take over, one's own initiative and industry wither away, leaving one vulnerable to snake oil salesmen who tell you...

    Why covet ancient chariots... Richard Owen ITALY Conservationists are campaigning for the return of a unique Etruscan “golden chariot” which is due to form the centrepiece of a new exhibition this Spring at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The chariot, found in 1902 by a farmer at Monteleone near Spoleto in Umbria, and sold to the Met the next year, dates back to the 6th century BC. It is the star attraction in a collection of antiquities to go on show at the $155 million (£80million) Leon Levy and Shelby White Court at the museum. Villagers in Monteleone (population...

    ST. PAUL - Ten Minnesotans will vote twice in this presidential election - legally. Jeffrey Carnes and Michael Meuers hope to be among them. For all the time, money and attention President Bush has devoted to Minnesota this campaign, he's mostly interested in the votes of Carnes and nine other Republicans. Sen. John Kerry's efforts are, above all else, aimed at snagging the votes of Meuers and nine other Democrats.
