    By Patrick "Facts need testimony to be remembered and trustworthy witnesses to be established in order to find a secure dwelling place in the domain of human affairs. From this, it follows that no factual statement can ever be beyond doubt—as secure and shielded against attack as, for instance, the statement that two and two make four. It is this fragility that makes deception so very easy up to a point, and so tempting. It never comes into a conflict with reason, because things could indeed have been as the liar maintains they were. Lies are often much more plausible,...

    Twenty-eight-year-old California native Adam Yahiye Gadahn (aka Azzam the American) recently appeared on an al-Qaida video with al-Qaida’s number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri. In the video Gadahn, looking like a bearded Pillsbury Doughboy in his white robe and turban, challenged American soldiers to convert to Islam.

    Cave drawings thought to 25,000 years old have been discovered in a grotto in western France. Several of the drawings—one showing an apparently turban-wearing human figure eating a wild pig—are deemed to be offensive to Islam. Coming on top of the cartoons of Mohammed published in Denmark and reprinted in several other European countries, Muslim anger has continued to swell. “These infidels cannot continue to mock us without consequence,” said Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah. “The West should be prepared for the real holocaust. When Iran has the bomb there will be no mercy for these blasphemers.” In an effort to...

    WASHINGTON - John Kerry (news - web sites)'s wife sang about how happy she is that he wasn't elected. Karl Rove revealed his successful strategy for winning President Bush (news - web sites) a second term. Wannabe presidential candidates pressed for advantage in the 2008 race. It was as close to "Saturday Night Live" as Washington gets, as journalists assumed the personas of politicians in song, dance and wisecracks at the Gridiron Club's 120th annual dinner. It's a journalistic tradition in which, for one night, members of the Fourth Estate turn the tables on the powerful people they report and...

    Father Joe The Man Who Saved My Soul By Tony Hendra Random House. 271 pp. $24.95 Tony Hendra will always occupy a warm spot in my heart because of his hilarious (and uncanny) imitation of John Lennon on "Magical Misery Tour," one of the selections on National Lampoon's 1972 LP Radio Dinner. Hendra was one of the founders of National Lampoon, and he recounts both his days there and how the Lennon send-up came about in Father Joe. But only in passing. For this is definitely not your usual show-biz memoir. True, by starting off with an account of how...
