Here's what Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- August 26-September 1, 2007

#10. The return of the eagles
by Michelle Malkin
Earlier this year, I reported on a new, nonpartisan movement that arose to challenge the surrender lobby.

#9. Another bogus report card for US medical care
by John Stossel
In May, the Commonwealth Fund issued its latest comparison of the U.S. medical system with five other wealthy nations' systems: Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and Great Britain. Predictably, the study begins: "Despite having the most costly health system in the world, the United States consistently underperforms."

#8. Immigration: The other mom from Mexico
by Austin Hill
Let me tell you about a mom from Mexico, who came to the U.S. You probably think that you've already heard that story. But I've got one you probably haven't heard yet - - and I'll get to it in a moment.

#7. Who is sicker, Vick or PETA?
by Star Parker
As animal-rights groups get more aggressive in their accusations and demands, the whole scene is getting stranger and stranger. And the closer you look, the more you see the deep conflicts in core values that fracture our society.

#6. Why Senator Craig is right
by Kevin McCullough
Senator Larry Craig is either incoherent or incompetent – or both. His press conference on Tuesday afternoon was exactly the wrong thing to do - on nearly every level. And I for one do not believe that most of his story holds.
