Quick picks

Some stories/blogposts that may be of interest to you:

  • Christopher Hitchens in an opinion piece for the WSJ writes “Iraq is no “distraction” from al Qaeda.” He’s also penned a related piece that focuses on the 3 year anniversary of the Iraq war, which you can find here.
  • Make sure to read this heartwrenching story of Tim Jaccard, a medic who started a foundation called “Children of Hope” – from that foundation he has bought space at the Holy Rood Cemetery in Westbury, NY and named that space “The Island of Hope” … where’s he’s buried 80 babies, most of them abandoned. Keep some tissues handy.
  • Joe Gandelman blogs about the stir over Wafah Dufour’s (OBL’s neice) upcoming new reality show.
  • ST reader Severian sends this link to an opinion piece written by Dennis Prager where Prager discusses the latest controversy in France – this time over a “new law in France that allows a company to fire a person under the age of 26, without cause, within two years of being hired” – and how this parallels with some of the socialist-like ideas some Democrats push today. Interesting read.
  • Stephen Spruiell at NRO’s Media Blog reports on an AP piece today that seems to mourn the end of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq rule. Read it, and you’ll understand why he appropriately and sarcastically calls it the ‘poor Saddam’ story.
  • Does Senator Hillary Clinton wear the pants in the family?
  • The DeLay case may be delayed. Again. The Houston Chronicle has the latest.
  • Glenn Reynolds proves why he’s the king of the blogosphere by soundly slamming the anti-war left – and doing so after yet another gloating-style email from an anti-war leftist (or Defeatocrat – take your pick).
