Here's what readers were talking about during the week that was -- May 6-12, 2007

#10. Why Christopher Hitchens is not Great
by Kevin McCullough
The Marxist views of Christopher Hitchens have long been evident. His simple, logical support for a strong response to 9/11 had earned him as bestowed by his fellow leftists the label "necon" which he steadfastly refutes.

#9. Why Atheism Fails: The Four Big Bangs
by Frank Pastore
Atheists respond to all these types of questions with essentially the same style answer. “We know God doesn’t exist. Therefore, since we’re here, though, it had to have happened this way. Thus, like the universe itself, life, mind, and mo-rality all ‘just popped’ into existence out of nothingness.”

#8. Hillary's French Lessons
by Dick Morris
What does the defeat of Segolene Royal, the first woman to seek the French presidency, mean for Hillary Clinton, in the midst of her pursuit of the Oval Office?

#7. Bookstore Ghettoes
by Thomas Sowell
If Rachael Ray had been black, there are bookstores where her cookbook would not be displayed in the same section with all the other cookbooks. It would be displayed off in a special section for black authors.

#6. Five Things You Can't Say In America
by John Hawkins
The title of this column is taken from Larry Elder's superb book Ten Things You Can't Say In America, even though we don't cover much of the same ground. Hopefully, Larry won't mind because imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery.
