Why We Are Choosing Private School

I work hard and my wife works even harder staying at home with our kids but the result of all this hard work is only one income. Sending 2 or 3 kids to private school is really going to stretch our budget. So the question we often get from
our friends both Christian and otherwise is, "Why send your kids to private school when public school is free?" Let me respond to that question in detail here.


Dan Rather - biased to the end

The folks at continue to provide a valuable public service by (once again) exposing Dan Rather’s biased ‘reporting’ on the communist Italian jounalist, Giuliana Sgrena. AIM editor Cliff Kincaid quite rightly noted that Rather is using the bad news from the front as part of his habitual left-wing, anti-American game plan. ... Kincaid further noted that while Rather goes to great lengths to ferret out every detail about possible legal or moral infractions on the part of US leaders and the US military, he forgets or purposefully ignores obvious and important details about the activities of those who are accusing the US of impropriety. ... I suppose that none of us should be surprised that Dan Rather has chosen to carry on his left-wing diatribe during the final minutes of his waning career. Rather than admitting he was wrong and attempting to repair some of the damage his overt bias and
underhanded tactics have caused, Dan Rather is going down proudly displaying his bias as an olympic athlete would display a gold medal.

The man is incorrigible.

Annan Courts Hezbollah

AP headline: "U.N. Must Accept Hezbollah, Annan Says."

...The difference between Bush's sentiments and Annan's is telling. It is telling of the leadership each man provides; but more important, it is telling of the effectiveness of the two entities they lead. While Bush's US continues its emergence as the global leader in the defense of freedom and opposition to terror, Annan's UN slouches toward irrelevance.

Fred on Evolution

I found this observation interesting, coming as it does from a non-Christian: "[E]volutionists are obsessed by Christianity and Creationism, with which they imagine themselves to be in mortal combat. This is peculiar to them. Note that other sciences, such as astronomy and geology, even archaeology, are equally threatened by the notion that the world was created in 4004 BC. Astronomers pay not the slightest attention to creationist ideas. Nobody does--except evolutionists."


Under My Skin

Here are two things that get way, way, deep under my skin.

First, my place of employment. Day to day, awesome. Policies, terrible. I realize that policies are dictated by powers that are beyond the control of anyone I know personally...but that only serves to amplify my frustration. Here is part of a broadcast email we received not too long ago. The topic is hiring policies and Affirmative Action:


Here's proof that terrorists, and Hezbollah in particular, are afraid of democracy.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Nearly 500,000 pro-Syrian protesters waved flags and chanted anti-American slogans in a central Beirut square Tuesday, answering a nationwide call by the militant Shiite Muslim Hezbollah group for a demonstration to counter weeks of massive rallies demanding Syrian forces leave Lebanon.
