    Are we going nuts? Is the whole nation suffering from mad cow disease or becoming senile at the ripe young age of 230? Was Chicken Little right? Is the sky falling? Were Copernicus and all former mathematicians wrong? Is 2 and 2 actually relative, anything we want it to be? Have we arrived at some stage in our "evolution" that empowers us to change the very DNA of society, of culture, the structural makeup of the human race? Or are we just too numb – or dumb – to protest the incessant, dogged determination of some lobbying groups to...

    When I was just a kid growing up outside Nashville, we had chickens. Quite a lot of chickens, most of the time. We kids only partly understood why Mama and Daddy wanted all those chickens, usually in coops and behind fencing, but occasionally finding ways to wiggle out into the yard and driveway and in general make messes and hassles. As each of us got a little older, we understood that Daddy's income as a building contractor whose business was in a growth mode (like our chickens) wasn't quite sufficient to feed all six of us, so we had chickens...

    Well, it's here. Right in the middle of us, and spreading. It's a fowl contagion and can be very dangerous. It's hard to prevent and even harder to cure. It's no respecter of persons; it can affect people of any age, economic background or culture. There's no vaccine, though there is something you can take to combat it – but I'll come to that later. I'm not referring to the dreaded avian flu, the one we've been reading about that's transmitted from bird to bird, and possibly to some humans or other creatures. No, I'm talking about another affliction....

A girls group that, yes, was very big a couple of years ago, but who self-destructed faster than a "Mission Impossible" tape recorder with one inexcusable utterance? A trio of talented girls who have been extremely fortunate, incredibly blessed, but who kissed off the great majority of their fans in an audacious display of hubris, poor taste and grievously un-American disdain for the twice-elected leader of the free world? Yep, there they are – with clothes on this time – unlike the infamous magazine cover they...

    Music legend Pat Boone is ripping into the Dixie Chicks for withdrawing their apology for a previous attack on President Bush. "I have four daughters, and I taught them to respect their elders, even if they weren't president of the United States," Boone told Fox News host Neil Cavuto today. "I think it's outrageous for any of these performers to be bashing our president the way they are." At a London concert in 2003, Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines sparked controversy by stating, "Just so you know, we're ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas."...

    I'm a singer. I hope you've noticed. For 50 years now, I've made a nice living and enjoyed a wondrous life, singing. Making music. When I got my first break, made my first record, there was something new happening in music – they were calling it "rock and roll." Actually, it was mostly rhythm and blues, or as many called it then, "race music." The fans of pop music, who made up the huge majority of listeners and buyers, liked well-crafted, melodic, catchy and memorable songs. A little section of New York City, called "Tin Pan Alley," housed hundreds...

    I don't know if I have any readers devoted enough to remember what I wrote in my column here on Jan. 7, so I'm not above telling you myself: I predicted we'd be learning that Saddam Hussein's WMDs were "slipped across the border into Syria." Now, it's just a few weeks later, and we have in fact learned that was the case. I'm neither prophet nor genius on this stuff, and if I was catching on long before the first days of January, so were other people. Now we have enough increased evidence and detail to declare mystery solved....

    Editor's Note: What's it like to raise a family in Hollywood? To be a Christian in Hollywood? Wes Vernon put those questions to longtime pop recording and box office star Pat Boone. In the interview that follows, we learn that yes, there is a Hollywood blacklist, but not the one of Hollywood demonology--as well as the reasons Hollywood is so fanatically leftist; the movie roles Pat Boone did not get and why; the roles he turned down and why; thoughts on why Hollywood propaganda should be counted as an in-kind campaign contribution to the Democratic Party; Boone's review of the...

    I love Dave Letterman. He's my idea of the funniest man in America. I appreciate his intellect, his quirky, irritated ideas about what's funny, and certainly respect his right to whatever opinions he has about anything. I confess he irks me with his nightly ridicule and denigration of our president. He's really got it in for George Bush, and he and the staff select little snippets of speeches, or a stumble, or a door that doesn't open, or even just a little aside and shoulder-shaking chuckle – anything that makes the president appear foolish – and revel in derisive laughter....

    Ever have your credit card denied? A check bounce? A computer tell you your credit is no good? Ever find a lot of charges on your card or phone charges on your bill you don't recognize? I have, and I'll bet you have, too. Twice I've been separated from my billfold, along with every card, my driver's license, even my Social Security card, everything that can identify me – except my face and my white buck shoes – and it's a terrible sinking feeling.

    Thanksgiving reflections about blessings the Almighty has bestowed on us sometimes awaken our pity for those who seem to have been cursed more than blessed in the year gone by. If we avoided direct hurt from tsunami or hurricane this year, we must already feel lucky compared to vast numbers of people still needing re-supply of brotherly love in strong doses. If we delighted in the survival or rehabilitation of a loved one – as the good Lord allowed in the case of my grandson Ryan, who'd once been deemed likely to remain "a vegetable" after suffering brain injury in...

    In the publicity build-up to Arianna Huffington's launch of her ambitious new Huffingtonpost celebrity bloggers website, I thought it revealing to see that the default assumption in the mainstream reporting on it was that Hollywood bloggers would be liberals. The New York Times report said, "The site is likely to start as a watering hole for liberals." Variety reported, "Huffington is wisely confining her site mostly to politics. It's safer, after all, for liberals to bash the government than Hollywood." It has become just a given. People speak of our town as being exclusively populated by liberals. It isn't (and...

They are joined by such acts as Michael McDonald, LeAnn Rimes, Marty Stuart, DC Talk and others on "Thank You Billy Graham," a track organized by Boone that celebrates the evangelist's 87th birthday. Net proceeds from the song and video, out November 7, benefit Mercy Corps and Samaritan's Purse for Hurricane Katrina and Global Poverty Relief.

    The two monster hurricanes smacking our shores recently should reminds us that, sooner or later, conflicts or disasters make survival too much the issue for certain pointy-headed philosophical debates to matter, and we simply need disciplined leaders of grace and grit. So we'd best be preserving the Boy Scouts. Why trouble ourselves about the Scouts now, you ask? Because discipline, grace, grit, skills and morality are the special stuff of the training ground that is Scouting. And this hallowed institution is currently suffering ungodly persecution from an organization that professes to "protect civil liberties." I was a Boy Scout. Even...

    Where's Will Rogers when we need him? And we do need him today! The wit and wisdom, the empathy and understanding he brought to the social and political issues of his day don't seem to exist anywhere now. Art Buchwald came close, and Garrison Keiller evoked old Will from time to time but the shaggy-haired Cherokee American philosopher from the Oklahoma Territory is still in a class by himself. There was only one. I had the honor and intense pleasure of portraying Will in "The Will Rogers Follies" in Branson, Missouri, for almost the whole year of 1994. The show...

    Gotta lotta friends fussing and fuming over the debate performance of the president we support for re-election! That first debate could have been a knock out blow to John Kerry’s White House hopes, because it focused on this election’s over-arching issue of foreign policy, where our president was the resolute commander in chief and his opponent was merely the last marathon dancer left standing after the Dems’ pained primaries. And Kerry’s dance moves on the war looked to us like just stumbling, close to outright pratfalls, so any of his debating points on the war--delivered in that Ted Baxter sonorousness...
