    Regular readers of these threads know that Julian Phillips of Fox & Friends Weekend has been a favorite target for my barbs. Fairness therefore dictates that I salute him when he gets something right, as he did this morning. The topic was the planned neo-Nazi march in Toledo, OH and the violence it sparked among largely black protesters.

However, he added the protest lasted longer and was more intense than expected. Authorities want to determine why protesters turned their...
