Here's what Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- Sept. 2-Sept 8, 2007

#10. Why Do People Do Evil?
by Dennis Prager
Decent people have sought to identify the roots of evil since the first indecent person inflicted cruelty on an innocent person. And people have come up with one or more of nine explanations, most of which are indeed valid.

#9. The Return of Toilet Man
by John Stossel
"Don't bother debating with John Stossel and the libertarians. They are worst than Republicans." That's a comment from climateprogress.org, Joe Romm's blog about global warming.

#8. Cruising While Republican
by Ann Coulter
If you've just returned from your Labor Day vacation and are scanning the headlines from last week's newspapers -- don't panic! America is not threatened by a category 5 hurricane named "Larry Craig."

#7. Of Mice and Mormons, Part VI
by Mike Adams
On September 3, 2004, the faculty held an orientation meeting with the incoming class of students. At this meeting, they outlined the memo from August 23, 2004, which explained that the program had adopted the positions of the APA on “same-sex marriage” and same sex parenting.

#6. Of Mice and Mormons, Part VII: The Conclusion
by Mike Adams
On October 25, 2004, the American Association of Marriage and FamilyTherapists (AAMFT) held a site visit for the purpose of reaccrediting the Purdue University Calumet (PUC) Master’s in Family Therapy Program. The AAMFT officials held a group meeting to discuss student concerns, but Mr. Ford remained silent at this meeting. He was afraid of inviting more retaliation if he spoke.

#5. Hillary's Hypocrisy


by Dick Morris
The winner of the Hypocrite of the Year award goes to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.). Even though the year is far from over and is likely to have its fair share of hypocrisy, Mrs. Clinton’s comment on the need to compromise to achieve political and social progress has to outclass any other current or future entrant.

#4. The Latest Problems with the “Man Evolved From Apes” Thesis
by Frank Pastore
Cavemen are popular once again. No, I’m not talking about those successful Geico commercials that won their own series on ABC starting October 2.

#3. 9 Members of Congress Who Should Resign Right After Larry Craig
by John Hawkins
There has been a lot of talk about Larry Craig's on again/off again decision to resign from Congress. Like most Republicans, I'm of the opinion that Craig should resign, but wouldn't it be great if he could take a few people with him?

#2. Random Thoughts
by Thomas Sowell
I can't get as fiercely involved as some other people do in controversies about the origins of human life on earth. I wasn't there.

#1. No "Health Care"?
by Thomas Sowell
During the first 30 years of my life, I had no health insurance. Neither did a lot of other people, back in those days.
