Exploring Christopher Columbus

The reason Cortez was able to subdue Moctezuma was that many of his "neighbors" were happy to see Tenochtitlan fall. They'd been raiding the surrounding peoples for slaves and human sacrifices for centuries. What the Spanish put in place, however barbaric, was orders of magnitude better than what the Aztecs were doing. And what the North Americans did was orders of magnitude better than that. Check out the Crow Creek Massacre (especially the date) for a more realistic picture of the cultures that were replaced by European "invasion." http://www.nebraskastudies.org/0200/stories/0201_0122.html
didn't mean to flag this one.
It is possible--if young people, in particular young men--that these latest developments will cut down on not only sexual assault in general, but sexual intercourse by students across the board. Looking at some examples of how this has been used by colleges, who in their right mind would engage in an activity that could ruin their entire professional life before it even began? Who in their right mind would put their professional life in the hands of a female college student fresh out of high school?

What About Bobby Jindal?

The US popular media has already decided that HIllary is next and there is almost nothing to stop it. I would love to see a Condi Rice/Bobby Jindahl ticket in 2016. I see your sexism card and raise you a race card.

As liberals (and the present POTUS) have demonstrated, doing well on IQ tests and having a glib tongue are NOT the best requirements of the office of president.

Excellent point. I've long stated the same to anyone who would listen. The office of the president is an executive office. The senate is a legislative office. We need a competent executive, not a legal "scholar" or lawmaker. We need a person with vision and the ability to communicate it well and convincingly.

I had foolishly hoped that the 2008 ticket would have been Romney-Jindahl. he was the perfect choice then and he is an even better choice NOW.

Neanderthal Man Rocks

A bit sad for a column. I was hoping something more about neanderthals and less about the vagaries of pop culture and the art world. Everything that comes from the mind into the world is art, it's just not all good art. There is contention about Serrano's photograph and its relation to urine, and Ofilli's "dung madonna" isn't about dung as much as it is surrounded by a cloud of pornographic butts. The best way to deal with those fools and hacks (Serrano is considered a bad technician by most photographers) is to ignore them.
Palin as commander in chief scares me.
