Commemorating Rosa Parks

Here's something that doesn't happen every day: The ACLU is on the right side of an issue. This time it's coming to the aid of a woman who refused to show ID just to ride a bus.
"It's wrong," she said Monday. "It's not even security. It's just a lesson in compliance - the big guys pushing the little guys around."

The Right Sort of Men

Good article on NRO by W. Thomas Smith on the news about the Iraqi armi that is being ignored.
"A year ago, they [the insurgents] freely attacked the Iraqi military, but now the Iraqi troops dominate the killing ground," says Gen. Bolger. "So the hostiles have resorted to remote bombings because they can't stand and fight the Iraqi soldiers anymore. Their worst nightmare is to confront an Iraqi rifleman in the dark, face-to-face. That will only go one way."
