    So, where are we? After weeks of attacks on John Bolton's character, integrity, temperament and conduct by John Kerry, Joe Biden, Chris Dodd and other Democratic members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, what do they have to show for it all? Answer: The Nation would be lucky to have Mr. Bolton represent it at the United Nations as President Bush has proposed - and as affirmed in a recently-released "web ad" by the Center. What "Abuse"?

    The Ascension of Christ and His Glorified Existence by Fr. William G. MostForty days after his Resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven. During this period between his Resurrection and Ascension, He actually gave the primacy He had promised to Peter, as we read in John 21. The many events between His resurrection and ascension preclude the theory that He ascended on Easter. His ascension does not mean that heaven is somewhere up in space. This was a way of making clear that He was leaving the present mode of existence. St. Paul in Colossians 3:1 urges us to live our lives...

    WAR against Saddam Hussein will start as soon as next Thursday, The Sun can reveal. A crucial UN Security Council vote for war is now likely a week this Wednesday. Allied commanders could order air strikes against the dictator hours later. A top US intelligence source said last night: “The moment we know we have the nine votes needed, we will go for it. The military won’t hang around after that.” Allied chiefs expect little resistance from Iraq’s army. The countdown to war became unstoppable when America spotted the first signs of support from Russia and China — both permanent...
