Summer Listening


Beach Boys' Wild Honey--short and sweet for a summer afternoon.

Obama

Here's a painful, compelling take-down of Obama, and I'm trying to determine how many of the writer's punches do in fact land. As someone who voted for him once and will vote for him again (the reasons why are laid out in the article, actually), I think it's important to face the most salient arguments against the effectiveness of his leadership. This is the most persuasive argument I've yet read. It seems like the choice is between a slower or a quicker American self-destruction. Because I have children, I prefer slower.
