    It appears that the Obama administration is violating the First Rule of Holes. Yesterday the administration looked awful when it “closed” and barricaded the World War II memorial on the Mall. The memorial is, by its nature, open. There is nothing to close. --SNIP-- ...these protesters were marching towards the press gaggle and I was asking them to show their federal IDs to prove they were in fact federal workers. No one wore their federal ID and none would provide it to prove their claim. Then, remarkably, a guy carrying a sign passed by wearing a McDonald’s employee shirt, which...

    A campaign is underway to have God represented on the new World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. "In this beautiful memorial ... there is not one reference to God, not one reference to prayer, not one reference to faith, not one reference to religion," Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition said this week in launching the national effort. "I do not think that we are stretching history to say that one of the critical factors in winning the war against Germany and Japan was the collective faith of our people and our leaders," Mahoney said. The American...

    The President and First Lady went to Arlington Cemetery where the President laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He spoke briefly on the character of America's Military, past, present and future, active-duty, deceased, retired, or reserves, and their committment to the Country. Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld received a standing ovation that clearly touched him (no pictures I could find that showed this) and also gave a short speech on the dedication of America's Military.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- For Tom Proctor, there could be no better day than Sunday to break ground for Illinois' memorial to the veterans of World War II. Exactly 62 years earlier, Proctor was sitting down to breakfast at Pearl Harbor when his anti-aircraft weapons unit was called out. The Japanese had attacked, and America was suddenly fighting in World War II. "All those men who were killed, and the men who received injuries on that day and are suffering from it, they've been forgotten, and damn it, I don't like that a bit," the Springfield resident said. "They say it's...
