The latest event in France has elicited an array of responses from politicians and commentators here in America. For now, Id like to focus on the single judgment that everyone from across the political spectrum seems to share:

Just the other morning, Mark Steyn, busily promoting his new book, made an appearance on Bill Bennetts radio program. The latter agreed enthusiastically with the former that in order for conservatives to prevail culturally, it is imperative for them to prevent the left from assuming control of the language.
