– was just begging for visuals:
GOP Convention Exposes Bigotry And Hatred On The Left ~ Why is it that the same people who admonish the rest of us to be tolerant are the worst offenders?
Why Does MSNBC Want to Go Backwards? ~ Oddly enough (or perhaps not), the foundational premise of the Declaration of Independence is suddenly a point of contention with the Left.

R.I.P. Neil Armstrong – truly a class act.
