  • A Perfect Day for Needlefish

    Townhall.com ^ | April 1, 2015 | Marvin Olasky
    In Guam recently my wife and I taught a writing course and then went snorkeling. Near coral reefs we fed, underwater, hundreds of 6-inch-long needlefish. Slender with little teeth, they appeared infused with light. So many sped around our hands that they formed a silver streak amid the blue-gray waters of Tuman Bay. We became fond of them. Later, I read for the first time in 45 years a story that influenced me as a teenager, J.D. Salinger’s “A Perfect Day for Bananafish.” The main character is a troubled veteran, Seymour Glass, surrounded at a hotel by the materialism Salinger...

    Posted By On @ 12:05 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 23 Comments Media has reported that the Obama Administration has threatened to support a United Nations resolution calling on Israel to retreat to the pre-1967 armistice lines. Obama is lashing out at Israel – this time because the Israeli public re-elected Benjamin Netanyahu. The truth is that the Obama Administration has consistently been hostile to Israel. They have threatened, warned and pressured – and that will continue until the last day Obama occupies the White House. Yet, America needs to remember that Zionism allows Jews self-determination. Israel will do just...

    Hillary Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department was listed as a director at the Clinton Foundation in its corporate records for more than three years after joining the administration, highlighting concerns that Clinton's aides were too close to the foundation during her tenure. The "William J. Clinton Foundation Corporation" named Cheryl Mills as one its three directors when it applied for nonprofit corporate status in Florida in June 2009-five months after Mills began serving as Clinton's chief of staff and counsel at the State Department. The organization continued to list Mills as a director in its annual state...

    Friends no longer visit Kafi Ahmad's small apartment in Syracuse. Her home health aide stopped coming. And the maddening insect bites persist. Ahmad, 63, said she has "no life'' since bedbugs infested her high-rise apartment in December. She has endured welts from swollen insect bites all over her body. After 14 years in her apartment, Ahmad fled to a homeless shelter for three nights in February to escape the bedbugs. The insects "bite me and pinch me,'' she said. "My life no good.'' Bedbugs, which started attracting notice in Syracuse a decade ago, are not known to carry disease but...

    SIOUX CITY, Iowa - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) reiterated his support for Indiana's controversial religious freedom law Wednesday, despite a fresh push by that state's governor to "fix" the measure. Speaking in a stuffy, cramped auditorium at Morningside College here, Cruz said that religious liberty is not a "fringe view." Cruz staked his claim to the right of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who signed the law but said he wanted to see "a fix" to the law that makes clear it does not give businesses license to deny services to customers on the basis of sexual orientation, and Arkansas Gov....

    International surrogacy is often touted as a win-win situation. Western couples get a baby gestated for them at a low price, and the women in third world countries get more money than they would normally see in a lifetime. But all we rich western countries have to do is look a tad bit closer and the whole facade falls apart. The women are exploited by signing contracts they cannot read, are kept under lock and key, forced to deliver by cesarean section, and then not paid the full amount they are promised. Some women die. Many of the contracting...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. private employers added the smallest number of workers in more than a year in March and factory activity hit a near two-year low, fresh signs that economic growth slowed significantly in the first quarter. The economy has been slammed by a harsh winter, a strong dollar and weaker global demand. While the effects of bad weather should start to fade, dollar strength could remain a constraint and limit a rebound in output.

    First look. Microsoft has released the first public preview build of Windows 10 to include Project Spartan, its new web browser. Is Project Spartan really new? The browser engine, called EdgeHTML, is a fork of the Internet Explorer (IE) web engine, called Trident, though with a key difference: EdgeHTML has no compatibility modes and will simply render the latest web standards Microsoft is able to deliver. The user interface is new but is really the successor to “Modern IE”, the Windows 8 web browser that runs in the don’t-call-it-Metro environment. Users will perceive Project Spartan as new though, since it...

    You’d never know it from the mainstream media puff pieces of Harry Reid’s sudden retirement, but it was a long string of corruption scandals—including a recent one involving his attorney son—that drove the veteran Nevada senator to abruptly leave public office. For nearly a decade Judicial Watch has investigated and exposed Reid’s involvement in a multitude of transgressions and JW even warned the Senate Ethics Committee, but not surprisingly, no action was ever taken. On multiple occasions the Senate minority leader appeared on JW’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his role in a number of political scandals that...

    March Madness, baseball and flowers. Spring in America would be so grand without income taxes and the headaches of filing on April 15. Just about everyone agrees our complex personal and corporate income tax laws are too painful and expensive—tax filing, record keeping and the like costs at least $170 billion a year. They are unfair—billionaire Warren Buffett laments his tax bracket is lower than his secretary’s. And the system kills jobs—although some businesses use political influence to pay a fraction of their fair share, most pay much higher taxes than foreign competitors lest they move factories and other activities...

About 10 percent of ozone pollution, the main ingredient in smog, in the state's San Joaquin Valley farm region comes from other countries, mostly in Asia, said Ian Faloona, an atmospheric scientist with the University of California, Davis.

Reid gave an ends justifies the means explanation to CNN's Dana Bash namely that, hey, it worked because Romney didn't win the presidential election. In 2012 a columnist in Reid's home state of Nevada, Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun wrote a column critical of Reid's attack on Romney based on no facts. The problem was that his column was killed by his editor, Brian Greenspun.So three years later, now that...

    Boko Haram was a vehicle for Muslim political interests inside and outside Nigeria to destabilize the oil-rich country. By the end, even the Obama administration made it clear that Muhammadu Buhari, the Muslim ex-dictator who had seized power in a coup before being overthrown, was their choice. Simpson reports that Secretary of State John Kerry “made a mockery of the administration’s pretext by hinting in January meetings with both Jonathan and Buhari that the Obama administration might allow weapon sales after the election.” Now the election came out their way, but the weapons sales may be surplus to requirements.

    When President Bill Clinton signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993, the law had broad support in both major political parties and was widely perceived as an expression of a pluralistic society's tolerance. When Gov. Mike Pence signed Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act last week, the law became a bitterly partisan issue, denounced by Democrats across the country as an instrument of bigotry. This dramatic shift in attitudes has less to do with the substance of the statute, which is similar to the federal version that has been around for more than two decades, than with the perceived motives...

    Approximately 17 months from now, OSIRIS-REx is slated to launch in the fall of 2016 and visit asteroid Bennu, a carbon-rich asteroid. Bennu is a near-Earth asteroid and was selected for the sample return mission because it “could hold clues to the origin of the solar system and host organic molecules that may have seeded life on Earth,” says NASA. The spacecraft is equipped with a suite of five science instruments to remotely study the asteroid. Eventually it will gather rocks and soil and bring at least a 60-gram (2.1-ounce) sample back to Earth in 2023 for study by researchers...

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto...

    Republicans are debating whether their path to the presidency in 2016 runs through the blue-collar Rust Belt states, or the demographically changing new South and Sunbelt states.

Most of the Senate battlegrounds run through the Midwest—Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio—along with New Hampshire, which carries demographic similarities with those older, whiter Great Lakes states. To defeat the vulnerable Republican incumbents, Democrats have a challenging task ahead: Making inroads with blue-collar voters, who have been stubbornly resistant...
