news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

A Proper Perspective:
   The American and Iraqi Civil Wars linked across 143 years

In an article at the New Republic, Noble Cause, William J. Stuntz writes of parallels between the unpopularity, and righteousness, of the American Civil War and the current Iraqi insurgency. He also reflects on different and changing rationales between entering the fight, and finishing the fight.

I would offer Stuntz' arguments against Cohen's lame and disenguous snipes of yesterday.

Thanks to the Port McClellan for the tip.
