While President Bush could be making a lasting—and to conservatives, positive—impression on the Supreme Court he has already started reframing the biggest issue of the day, the war on terror, by calling it what it is: a war on radical Islam.
Because every few years this country, in its infinite tolerance, insists on hearing yet another appeal of the Scopes monkey trial, I feel obliged to point out what would that the two greatest scientists in the history of our species were Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein, and they were both religious.
There’s a new Harry Potter in town, and he’s more compelling (and perhaps controversial) than any of his earlier big-screen incarnations. No longer an awkward boy, Harry is in the process of becoming an awkward adolescent, and those youngsters who’ve grown up right along with him will find much to connect with beyond spells and sorcery.
