Sunday Tenets

The Third Law of Motion. Patrick Buchanan weighs in on the whole financial mess with an obituary of sorts over at HumanEvents. Lest you get too down, over at TownHall, Larry Kudlow has a piece reminding us of the resilience of this country. Neither one of these commentators is one I tend to subscribe to, since I consider Buchanan something of a racist and Kudlow too much of a Pollyanna. Still, both are true. And as a final public service, read how the New York Times advises safeguarding your money.

The Law of Opposites. Since politics is never too far away these days... I have been pleasantly surprised to find among the pages of Newsweek, the work of a reporter by the name of Andrew Romano. Read his column about the low blows being landed in which he avoids glib answers and actually tries to get at fact. Amazing. Watch this young man.

Murphy's Law. And in other news, the destruction of the world is going to have to wait a while longer. The infamous collider in Geneva has been damaged and will be out for at least two months. Mechanical failure.

Law of Averages. Because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. Residents of Blackstone, VA are having a hard time convincing wild life experts that there are cougars roaming in their midst. Biggest problem, nary a one has been caught on the motion-sensitive cameras that "dot" forests in the East. Article here.

Religious Law. And in the ongoing jihad against tobacco.... Here's an interesting examination of smoking in Muslim cultures under the guise of the difficulties faced by tokers during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Enlightening
