    We all know the Muslim world is a political and cultural disaster zone.All you need to know is the spectacularly low level of book sales in the Arab world, and a similarly miserable record in winning Nobel prizes, whether in literature or hard science. A dozen years ago, a group of Arab scholars did a report for the United Nations [1] that ascribed the failure of Arab society to a lack of freedom, knowledge and womenpower. And things have gotten considerably worse since 2002; the authors could write that there were no ethnic conflicts then. That’s long gone.Never mind...

    SIERRA VISTA — Parents and families with young children are invited to the Mall at Sierra Vista Saturday morning to hunt for some of the 10,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes. “I can’t find them all by myself,” said Ken James, who coordinates Sierra Vista Leisure and Library Services’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza. He recommends parents bring an Easter basket or something to carry the prizes and treats offered at free carnival games and Easter egg hunts, which start at 9 a.m. “Otherwise mom and dad’s hands get full real quick,” James said. In its third year at the mall,...

    As everyone knows, David Rockefeller is the Secret Ruler of the World (he fired Khrushchev and hired Brezhnev back in '64). Only he's getting kinda long in the tooth now (he turns 98 today!). He is the last surviving grandson of John D. Rockefeller, who ghost wrote The Communist Manifesto for Marx and Engels when he was eight years old. Question: Has he delegated his powers as Secret Ruler of the World to someone else? Has Soros conducted a coup? How much longer is the old coot gonna be around? And most importantly: Who will secretly rule the world when...

    THE HISTORY OF LENT.. For our traditional Italian Roman Catholic family, Lent is a very special time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter.. I have searched the internet researching the various ways that this wonderfully religious season is celebrated from it's earliest biblical beginnings.. Since the earliest times of the Church, there is evidence of some kind of Lenten preparation for Easter. It starts with Ash Wednesday, when Catholics had their foreheads marked with ash crosses, a symbol of penance signaling the start of Lent. During the 40 days leading up to...

But while all of these actions are avoidable, February 14 is not. And if it’s Valentine’s Day, it must be time for Dave Ramsey … pickup lines, that is.

    On a Sunday morning a couple years ago, Brooklyn journalist Foster Kamer and a few of his "particularly liberal" blogger friends decided to skip brunch and hit the shooting range instead. "We said, hey, let's do something ridiculous," he recalled. "Let's go shoot guns." They chose the nearest site they found, a range that operated out of a basement in midtown Manhattan. "The first thing that happened when we got there was we heard some guy hammering away at a target with what sounded like a cannon. It was just in such tight quarters. It kind of freaked us out."...

    The holiday season generates thoughts and memories relating to families and the home, so it’s no wonder many holiday-centric movies so prominently feature a home. Some of these beloved homes are figments of set designers’ imaginations. The mundane two-story suburban home of “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” was a set, and even the lovely stone farmhouse from the 1945 romantic comedy “Christmas in Connecticut” was a set.

    These days, if a stuffed animal's plastic eye so much as wiggles, that toy is recalled faster than you can say "class action lawsuit." Back in the day, though, child safety consisted of just getting out of the way and letting natural selection do its thing. If a kid was too dumb to play with a toy the right way, well, he'd just have to learn to get along with one less eye. That meant molten glass, molten metal, hazardous chemicals -- all were included in toys back then ... on purpose.

    Hamas is reporting record turnouts for its summer camps for children in 2011. The 'summer camps,' combining Islamic indoctrination, paramilitary training, and social activities are set to begin again this year as United Nation’s summer camps, considered competition by Hamas, are being openly denigrated by jihadists. Children and adolescents are an important target demographic for Hamas, from which its future army of terrorists will be recruited. Summer camps are an important means for indoctrinating Gaza's youth with Hamas' jihadist ideology. In 2010 Hamas ran camps for an estimated 100,000 campers, a number similar to 2009.

So they preempted Bibi’s own peace proposal by having Obama call for Israel to return to its 1967 borders, give or take a few land swaps. There was one problem with the timing. It overlooked the fact that President Obama is addressing the largest gathering of AIPAC ever this coming Sunday, with 10,000 pro-Israel activists in attendance. It’ll be fun to see what happens.
