Saturday miscellany

First things first. Check out Peter Robinson’s Uncommon Knowledge conversation with Mark  Steyn. The videos are served up in manageable portions of about 5-10 minutes a piece. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.

Steyn’s  Saturday column: Welcome to Fascizona

Oremus.

Jeanette Pryor presents the logical feminist position on abortion. Excellent piece, but . . . good luck with that. My post here.

Video: Obama sings the praises of government: “We’ve also clearly  seen the dangers of too little government.” Aargh.
