Here's what readers were talking about during the week that was -- July 29-Aug 5, 2007

#10. In Defense of Drunk Astronauts
by Charles Krauthammer
Cut these cowboys some slack. These are not wobbly Northwest Airlines pilots trying to get off the runway and steer through clouds and densely occupied airspace. An ascending space shuttle, I assure you, encounters very little traffic.

#9. Che! You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
by Mike Adams
Before I get into the details of what I want to include in the new Guevara Memorial I would like to address the reasons why he is so misunderstood. A lot of the confusion has to do with the press.

#8. A Teaching Moment From the District of Columbia
by Terence Jeffrey
The District of Columbia deserves the gratitude of taxpayers everywhere for giving the nation a lesson in governance. It is proving that spending more on public schools is a waste of money.

#7. Defeatism Dance-a-thon: What Would Glenn Miller Think?
by Mary Katharine Ham
Last week, “So You Think You Can Dance”—a formerly refreshing, wholesome, entertaining American-Idol-style showcase of America’s best young dancers doing everything from the foxtrot to hip-hop—decided to shake its groove thang and its political agenda.

#6. The Hidden Basis for Hostility to Israel -and America
by Michael Medved
On Saturday in Jerusalem, I participated in a moving religious service to honor one of Israel’s most celebrated heroes from last summer’s war against the Hezbollah terrorists.
