70-Year-Old Marines: 1
Costa Rican Punks: 0

This is a classic tale of a retired U.S. Marine on a simple vacation cruise to Costa Rica. While getting off a tour bus, his group is held up by three armed muggers. After a brief struggle, our hero kills one of the assailants with his bare hands and the other two flee. True to his roots, the old Marine seeks no glory or reward, remaining anonymous.

Kids More Narcissistic Than Ever

Gee, we never saw this coming. When every public school in the country repeatedly re-enforces the "you are the most important person in the whole world" mantra, why should we be surprised when the kids start believing it?

Study: College students more narcissistic

It's yet another example of public schools circumventing the oldest tenets of Christianity with dire consequences. I can't decide whether I should revel in all those chickens coming home to roost or to shout in hopeless frustration with a completely broken system beholden to teachers' unions that are blatantly more concerned with wages, benefits, vacation days, and pensions than the success of the system. It is written in stone that the needs and agenda of a labor union are ALWAYS at odds with producing a quality product. Yet in this country we continue to let the fox guard, manage, feed, and maintain the henhouse. No one should be surprised when a few chickens go missing.

Global Warming vs. Winter Weather

Fox News' Brit Hume, reports:

A House sub-committee hearing on climate change and the warming of the planet was called off today because of the snow and ice storm that hit Washingon. And in St. Louise a scheduled showing of Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth", a movie on global warming, was cancelled by Maryville Unversity because of the harsh winter weather.
