Thomas Sowell and his three-part series on global warming hysteria took the top three spots. See what else readers were talking about during the week that was -- Feb 11-17, 2007

#1. Global Hot Air
by Thomas Sowell
The political left's favorite argument is that there is no argument. Their current crusade is to turn "global warming" into one of those things that supposedly no honest and decent person can disagree about, as they have already done with "diversity" and "open space."

#2. Global Hot Air: Part II
by Thomas Sowell
Propaganda campaigns often acquire a life of their own. Politicians who have hitched their wagons to the star of "global warming" cannot admit any doubts on their part, or permit any doubts by others from becoming part of a public debate.

#3. Global Hot Air: Part III
by Thomas Sowell
If you take the mainstream media seriously, you might think that every important scientist believes that "global warming" poses a great threat, and that we need to make drastic changes in the way we live, in order to avoid catastrophes to the environment, to various species, and to ourselves.

#4. Jonathan Livingston Obama
by Ann Coulter
I've caught Obama fever! Obamamania, Obamarama, Obama, Obama, Obama. (I just pray to God this is clean, renewable electricity I'm feeling.)

#5. Crime of Addiction Does Not Paey
by Mike Adams
The evidence that Paey tampered with the prescriptions is, in my opinion, conclusive. But I have yet to see any evidence that Paey intended to do anything else with the medicine. That is why the 25-year sentence is such a tough pill to swallow for many observers, whether liberal, conservative, or libertarian.
