    On this, the 36th anniversary of Earth Day, it is only fitting to speak of one of its founders, Ira Einhorn. You won't find Ira Einhorn's name listed in any of the Earth Day promotional literature, as the organizers have taken great pains to distance themselves from this man, at least since he became better known for composting his girlfriend in a trunk in his closet for a couple of years in the late 1970s.

  • Pay Attention Parents: It's Almost Earth Day!

    Few adults may know it, but kids across the country are about to celebrate a holiday: Earth Day, which is April 22. Schools will take a break from normal instruction to discuss the importance of preserving the environment. That may sound like a harmless activity, but too often Earth Day becomes a platform for pushing an ideological brand of environmentalism. Parents need to pay attention and ask their children's teachers what's their plans are for Earth Day. Unlike most holidays, Earth Day expressly focuses on youth. No gifts will be exchanged and no Easter Bunny will deliver jelly beans in...
  • The Senator and the Unicorn How Arlen Specter helped a murderer skip bail.

    National Review ^ | 4/8/2004 | John J. Miller
    Long before he became one of the most liberal Republicans in the Senate and the target of Congressman Pat Toomey's GOP primary challenge Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania demonstrated a knack for notoriety. In 1964, as a member of the Warren Commission, he invented the "single-bullet theory" to explain how Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President Kennedy. Conspiracy junkies have obsessed over him ever since. (In Oliver Stone's movie JFK, Kevin Costner's character labels Specter "an ambitious junior counselor" behind "one of the grossest lies ever forced on the American people.") Between serving on the Warren Commission and becoming a...

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Arlen Specter went back on his word to Republican caucus members and conservative groups alike when he recently hired Hannibal G. Williams II Kemerer, who until recently was the NAACP's assistant general counsel. Specter hired Kemerer against the wishes of his senior Judiciary Committee staff. "We warned him this was going to cause trouble, but Specter said it was his committee, we are his staff, and he's going to do what he believes is right," says a Judiciary Committee staffer. Kemerer was a protg of Elaine Jones, who three years ago, as head of the NAACP...

    The Republican expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee next year bluntly warned newly re-elected President Bush on Wednesday against putting forth Supreme Court nominees who would seek to overturn abortion rights or are otherwise too conservative to win confirmation.

    PHILADELPHIA - A former hippie guru convicted in 2002 of a 25-year-old murder wants the judge who presided over his trial to hurry up with an opinion needed to pursue an appeal. Ira Einhorn, 64, is serving life in prison without parole for the murder of girlfriend Holly Maddux. After two trials and nearly 17 years on the run in Europe, he now is incarcerated at the state prison in Houtzdale. In a motion sent to the state Superior Court, Einhorn complains that Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge William J. Mazzola has failed to file a response to his lawyer's Nov....

    A Frenchman got a three-month suspended sentence for trying to run down a pedestrian he thought was Osama bin Laden. The driver, who was identified only as a 35-year-old craftsman, chased the apparent Osama through the streets of Montpellier, running a red light and driving through a pedestrian zone. His mission ended when his car ran into a staircase. The court also ordered the driver to seek counseling and pay 500 euros ($615) in damages to the victim. This incident should rank as one of France's biggest military victories. The heroic driver -- he was steering one of those little...

    I think it is fair to say that I'm something of an old hand at observing the political process. I was first elected as a Republican committeeman 50 years ago! A half century is time enough to learn the rules. The Republican primary battle between U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey and four-term Sen. Arlen Specter is unseemly, and bad for the party.
