Well, this week's Top Ten could probably just be Mike Adams and nine runners-up as Mike's investigative report on Kent State professor Julio Pino caught the attention of readers, newspapers, Fox News, and the Drudge Report. One of the most read pieces in a long-long time.    To get to Mike's report though, you're going to have to get through nine other fantastic pieces from Doug Giles, Dennis Prager, Thomas Sowell, Michael Medved, and others. That's what Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- Feb 25th-March 3rd, 2007 

#10. I’m not Homophobic; I’m Chick-O-Centric
by Doug Giles
I think I speak for most heterosexual males when I say I’m not homophobic but chick-o-centric. Let’s keep it positive, okay? It’s not that we dislike you, the gay guy; it’s just that we really like girls. It seems no matter how long we compliantly spend in rehab undergoing the most stringent psychotherapy to rid ourselves of our knee-jerk to your mate choice, the simple fact is . . . heterosexual guys don’t “get” gays. Period.

#9. George Soros and the Problem of the Radical Non-Jewish Jew


by Dennis Prager
What do Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Noam Chomsky and George Soros have in common? They were/are all radicals, born to Jewish parents, had no Jewish identity and hurt Jews (not to mention non-Jews).

#8. High Court and Low Politics
by Thomas Sowell
The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan said that you are entitled to your own opinion but not to your own facts. However, many on the political left act as if they are entitled to their own facts -- and especially the "fact" that those who oppose their ideas are either intellectually or morally inferior.

#7. 2008... Too much, too soon?
by Kevin McCollough
Despite the fact that some in both parties strongly disagree, I believe the twenty-one month campaign cycle needs to become the norm, not the exception, and that in doing so we might actually get to shape elections that truly matter. Not everyone agrees.

#6. High Court and Low Politics: Part II
by Thomas Sowell
Franklin D. Roosevelt, loaded the Supreme Court with liberal, Democratic justices. What is far harder to understand is how a whole succession of conservative Republican presidents -- Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Bush 41 -- managed to appoint so many liberals to the Supreme Court.

#5. Why liberals are right to hate the Ten Commandments
by Michael Medved
In the last five years alone, the tireless fanatics at the ACLU have invested tens of millions of dollars and countless hours of legal time in lawsuits to yank the Commandments from long-standing displays in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Montana, Georgia, Iowa, Washington State, Nebraska, Texas, Pennsylvania and Florida. In one of the most recent battles, they delayed their litigation in Dixie County, Florida, because they couldn’t find a single local resident to lend a name as plaintiff in a drive to dislocate the tablets from the local court house.

#4. What Bones of Jesus?
by Brent Bozell
The press releases of the Discovery Channel boast that its parent company, Discovery Communications, is the "number one nonfiction media company." That identifier is now in shambles, and the paper it's printed on fit only to be crumpled and thrown away. The folks at Discovery have rendered themselves carnival barkers peddling sensationalistic garbage, trashy moneymaking gimmicks dressed up as real journalism.

#3. Colleges to Attend, Part II
by Mike Adams
After my first “Colleges to Attend” column, scores of readers wrote asking whether I would soon recommend a public university with significantly lower tuition than Pepperdine. I am pleased to do so today with the recommendation of a public school from my former home state of Texas.

#2. Let Them Eat Tofu!
by Ann Coulter
Even right-wingers who know that "global warming" is a crock do not seem to grasp what the tree-huggers are demanding. Liberals want mass starvation and human devastation. Liberals are already comfortably ensconced in their beachfront estates, which they expect to be unaffected by their negative growth prescriptions for the rest of us.

#1. Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard
by Mike Adams
Yesterday afternoon, I logged on to the "Global War" blog (global-war.bloghi.com) of Associate Professor Julio Pino – a Muslim convert who teaches at Kent State University. The heading for the site used to read "The Worldwide Web of Jihad: Daily News from the Most Dangerous Muslim in America." Now it reads "Are You Prepared for Jihad?" IN THE NAME OF OBL. 2007: THE YEAR OF ISLAMIC VICTORY!" (Mike Adams followed up in Part 2)
