SOLO-International Op-Ed: The Anti-American President Pt 8—Yes, Mr. President, We Know Who You Are
When Barack Obama's presidential seal prophetically fell off his lectern mid-speech a few days ago, the president retrieved the situation with characteristic aplomb. "All of you know who I am," he quipped.

Dame Joan Sutherland, Australia's greatest-ever soprano, has died at 83. She first captured international headlines in 1959, appearing as Lucia at the Met. Here she sings with Pavarotti the Love Duet from that opera, followed by Casta Diva from Norma, another opera she "owned.":

SOLO-International Op-Ed: Take the Pledge!
Nearly thirty years ago, as a budding Objectivist libertarian who had thrown off the shackles of both Marxism and the knee-jerk nihilism that set in after it, I thrilled to Ronald Reagan's bold inaugural proclamation that "the economic ills we suffer have come upon us over several decades. They will not go away in days, weeks, or months, but they will go away. They will go away because we, as Americans, have the capacity now, as we have had in the past, to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom. In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problems; government is the problem.

Why Burn It When You Can Wipe Your Ass With It?
As I write this, Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who was intending to hold a Koran-burning ceremony to mark September 11 and protest against the proposed Mosque near Ground Zero, has called it off, claiming Imam Rauf has undertaken to construct the Mosque at a less provocative location. Rauf is denying this. Jones is saying he's been misled, and his International Burn a Koran Day is not cancelled, merely "on hold."

Veteran communist Matt McCarten huffs and puffs mightily in his latest Herald on Sunday column about the imminent demise of those capitalist running dogs, the Act Party ("Death Throes of the Soulless Party of Self-Interest"), and there's no doubt he does a highly entertaining job of it. Part of the entertainment, though, lies in McComrade McCarten's own McConfusion.

[Linz's note—the following is an adaptation of an editorial broadcast on 'The Politically Incorrect Show,' March 8, 2002, in response to the brouhaha provoked by a guide to committing suicide published by the Auckland University student newspaper, Craccum. I'm reprising it now at the suggestion of PC in light of the current debate in NZ over youth suicide and whether it should be reported or not. It's also pertinent in light of the ongoing debates here with Goblians.]
Yesterday's furore about the Craccum "How to commit suicide" article and your comments on this programme about it set me to thinking about the time I appeared on 'The Ralston Group' when we panellists were asked our explanations for the high rate of youth suicide.
