Great Article on Carrie Prejean and 17 year old Mistakes vs. 21 year old Mistakes
You know by now the controversy regarding the Miss USA pagent, when the blogger called “Perez Hilton” who has made a name for himself by outing people in Hollywood and tafficing in gossip asked Miss California “do you agree with gay marriage” which should never have been asked in a pagent at all. Now Carrie Prejean has become a spokesperson for the traditional marriage movement, a movement i might add that is still in agreement with about 60% of Americans. Now they have dug up a picture of her from when she was age 17 that is semi-toppless (I will not post to it, as i think it qualifies as lite pornography).
What to make of all this? Well Kathreen Jean Lopez of National Review and Seth Leibsohn of the Claremont Institute have a great piece entiteld “Naked in the Naked Public Square.” You can read it here:
I agree with most of what they had to say (I think they were harder on Miley Cyrus and her dad then I would be, since I think they got snookered and simply trusted the wrong person), but it got me to thinking about Ms Perjean and what good will come of this for her. After the jump you will find the email I sent to Madam Lopez, the queen of Nationalreview.com

Why the Chrysler Bankruptcy Deal is Dangerous
I have never owned a Chrysler vehicle. Actually, I am not sure I have ever been in one. Maybe a Jeep Wagoneer, but it was not owned by Chrysler when my friend had one. I am also not particularly pro-union, though from a historical view, I think they played an important role. But whatever your view of unions, the Chrysler name, or President Obama, you should be very worried about the deal worked out between the Obama administration and Chrylser last week that has now gone to the bankruptcy judge.

On Trying to Find Meaning through Swine Flu
Why did our country go crazy over this recent out break of the dreaded swine/H1N1/Mexican/resort flu? Yes, the 24 hour news cycle contributed, but why would ordinary people run out and spend good money on fac masks they neither needed nor will likely ever use?
