    A campus group at the University of California, Berkeley, invited a conservative speaker to give a talk. How did Berkeley react, the legendary home of the Free Speech Movement? Given that the talk had been planned long in advance, did opponents get a permit to assemble legally and to protest? Or, if not, did they at least share their displeasure through a peaceful demonstration, with signs and chanted slogans? Not a chance.........

  • Another Day in Paradise (Berkeley)

    I did something last week that I rarely do: I went out after dark. I don’t like to do this. This area is too creepy crawly during the day, much less at night. But supplies were low, and I wasn’t sure when I’d get another chance to go food shopping. And I thought to myself, “Maybe you’re exaggerating all of this: the crime, the filth, the general insanity. Maybe it’s not as bad as you think.” So, like a small child testing the waters, I thought I’d stick my toe in the after-hours scene. It was about 7:30 pm when...

    I was recently delighted to note the return of the incomparable Robin of Berkeley to the ranks of the blogosphere. Her insights are among the most thoughtful and revealing I have encountered on the web, and I am overjoyed at her return from a self imposed exile of almost two years, during which she posted only about a half dozen missives. In the past few weeks she has penned another half dozen, and I am profoundly hopeful that her output continues and increases. She is a recovering atheist leftist psychotherapist whose skewering of the insanity that is the Left is...
  • U.S. diplomat and longtime Pakistan expert is under federal investigation (Robin L. Raphel Again)

    A veteran State Department diplomat and longtime Pakistan expert is under federal investigation as part of a counterintelligence probe and has had her security clearances withdrawn, according to U.S. officials. The FBI searched the Northwest Washington home of Robin L. Raphel last month, and her State Department office was also examined and sealed, officials said. Raphel, a fixture in Washington’s diplomatic and think-tank circles, was placed on administrative leave last month, and her contract with the State Department was allowed to expire this week. Two U.S. officials described the investigation as a counterintelligence matter, which typically involves allegations of spying...

I can’t argue with that.” He adds: “But I simply cannot understand how any parent could kill themselves.”“How in the hell could you possibly do that to your children?

    Lt. Boyd said Williams was found in his bedroom “clothed, in a seated position, unresponsive with a belt secured around his neck.” There were also several cuts on his left wrist and a pocket knife with a dried red substance was found in the vicinity, he stated. The Academy-Award winner was 63. “The work of the coroner’s office is not complete at this time,” Lt. Boyd stressed. He said a final cause of death would be released in several weeks after toxicology tests are completed. “The forensic examination conducted by Dr. Joseph Cohen did not [indicate]…that Mr. Williams had been...

    There once was a popular Indian teacher named Papa G, who drew students from far and wide. People flocked to see him and hear his words of wisdom. One lucky man who was able to attend one of his retreats spoke to Papa G, with camera in hand. The visitor asked the guru what he’d like to say to the multitudes all around the world vying to come to India to see him. Papa G smiled an impish grin and said, “Stay home.” Papa G’s words remind me a bit of Dorothy, who journeyed all around Oz, only to find...

    I miss Robin of Berkeley. She hasn't posted anything since October. No articles on American Thinker or on her site. She was publishing quite steadily for a good long time and then - nothing. I truly hope she is OK. There are people who would make her life miserable if they could figure out her real identity. I sent an email to the editor of AT yesterday and this is the reply I received: "She is busy with other matters. We share your feelings, and are hoping she will return to writing." - That's all I've been able to...

    Few are laughing in Australia following Robin Williams' joke that its people are "basically English rednecks". His remarks, made on The Late Show with David Letterman, prompted Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to respond on a Sydney radio show. "I think Robin Williams should go and spend a little time in Alabama before he frames comments about people being particularly redneck," said Mr Rudd.

    A RARE and beautiful snowy white robin has been delighting Christmas revellers with its own winter wonderland performance. Families have been turning out to watch the white robin – believed to be the only one of its kind in Britain – as it flits among cherry trees and pours out a seasonal song. Albino robins are almost unheard of in the wild. Their glistening plumage makes them easy targets for predators such as sparrowhawks. Yet Snowflake the Robin has been merrily bob-bob-bobbing on Hampstead Heath this winter and has become something of a celebrity. Delighted observers have been calling the...

    Money game reveals our inner Robin Hood 18:00 11 April 2007 news service Roxanne Khamsi Our innate desire for equality prompts us to "even out" the wealth of the rich among the poor – even at our own expense, a new study suggests. In the laboratory games, the poorest players surrendered some of their own money tokens simply to penalise their richer counterparts, without any hope of personal gain. James Fowler at the University of California in San Diego, US, and colleagues recruited 120 student volunteers to take part in the experiment. Each student sat before a computer terminal...
