Pigford and Political Correctness

Earlier today on Big Hollywood I wrote about actor Robert Davi and Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's recent tweets about the damage political correctness does.  Davi pointed me to the writings of Philip Atkinson.  Regarding the Pigford cases, I thought this passage was relevant: May 1, 2013 2:42 PM PT

Anti-Fox News Site Smears Robert Davi Sans Facts

Actor/singer Robert Davi is under attack from an anti-Fox News web site, but not for anything he said directly. The site simply puts hateful words into Davi's mouth in an effort to distract from his argument against political correctness. May 1, 2013 9:07 AM PT

Could This End the Media's Love Affair with Psy?

Last Friday evening CBS announced that Psy, the anti-American Korean one-hit wonder ("Gangham Style"), would be their guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  Even though Psy apologized for a song where he said that American troops and families should be killed "slowly and painfully" it's dumb that CBS would even open itself up to criticism.  Oh, wait, they aren't receiving any criticism beyond tweets from conservatives like me who still pay attention to celebrities.  At the very least they should be criticized for bringing a has-been.  You're supposed to bring the celebrities who are hot right now -- like the cast of "Duck Dynasty" -- not the guy who is now doing commercials for pistachios.  Did CBS invite Psy because Tan Mom wasn't available?

Summer Reading List

Ok, it's not summer yet, but there are a lot of great books coming out that I can't wait to read.  I readily admit that I'm lacking in the non-fiction/political department.  There's just something about reading on the beach or by the pool that makes me want to read for fun.  Hopefully, other Conversation contributors can make other suggestions if you're looking for a well-rounded list.

Slate: Newspapers will start losing money if they become conservative

When we first learned that the Koch brothers were considering buying Tribune Company, I saw it as a positive move. Not because these papers would be transformed into The Washington Times, but because it would help conservatives look beyond the A section. Management might be more open to conservative editorial voices (good for the movement) and conservatives might be more open to the importance of the non-A sections (also, good for the movement).

Pressure Cooker Control

Last week several people joked about banning pressure cookers.  It seems the jokes have becoming reality.  From Reason.com: Apr 23, 2013 12:27 PM PT

Why are we 'should-ing' all over ourselves?

The "Sex and the City" quote, "Why are we 'should-ing' all over ourselves?" came to mind when I read this piece in the Guardian, "Female Ivy League graduates have a duty to stay in the workforce."  Feminists love to tell women what they should do.  From the article: Apr 22, 2013 12:53 PM PT

A Must-Read: 'Letters to a Young Progressive'

In a 2004 Townhall column titled “Up From Atheism,” UNC-Wilmington Professor Mike Adams wrote, “Ever since I became a columnist, people have been asking me to explain exactly how I abandoned atheism. I think it would be better to talk about how I could have avoided it. I also think that the right reading list for high school seniors would make a lot of teenagers less susceptible to the anti-religious influences they encounter in college.” Apr 22, 2013 8:25 AM PT
