I hate provisos, but sometimes I feel they are necessary. As my side bar states, just because I link a column doesn’t mean I agree with any or all of the column, and it certainly doesn’t mean that I’m a “fan” or a “supporter” of the writer. Jim Rome has clones. Rush has ditto heads. I’m neither. You won’t find writers from too wide a spectrum linked here, but it won’t only be far right types.
Here are two excellent columns from Cal Thomas, one of my favorite commentators. The first revolves around his friendship with the late Senator Kennedy. The second is a solid lesson on the difference between showing good judgment and being judgmental. Thomas has a nice website, too. You’ll find it by clicking here.
Mark Steyn is another columnist I enjoy. My first exposure to Steyn was through his book America Alone. It’s a good read. Since then I’ve regularly read his Saturday column for National Review online. His most recent contribution deals with the President’s plan to address all the schoolkids of the nation during school through a satellite feed. As usual, Steyn writes a well reasoned and witty column.
Next are a couple of thought provoking columns by George Will. Mr. Will is a conservative columnist who suggests here and here that the American military should pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Don’t argue against his point until you’ve read his argument. I think he makes a lot of sense. Something to think about anyway.
Here are the last two. First, Levi Johnston just won’t go away. I wish he would! Here is a fairly solid piece from NYT op-ed columnist Gail Collins onthe subject.
Because football season is here, the final commentary that I’ll link is from Ted Kluck’s open letter to Tim Tebow fans.
