School returns ‘God’ to song of patriotism – ‘Political correctness’ backfires
By Ben Wolfgang
God may once again bless the USA at Stall Brook Elementary. The Bellingham, Mass., school, under fire for changing the lyrics of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” to “We Love the USA” for an upcoming fourth-grade concert, reversed course Thursday after drawing a backlash from parents and hints of legal threats from Mr. Greenwood, who penned the 1984 tune.
Trayvon Martin Story Destroys Last of Media’s Credibility
Posted by Leon H. Wolf
I don’t really know what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. What I do know is that this story has resulted in at least one homicide – the self-inflicted homicide of the media’s last shreds of credibility.

The High Court’s very “legitimacy” will be in question, as one editorial put it—a view repeated across the liberal commentariat.

It is the start of Holy Week. Two Thousand years ago, Christ entered Jerusalem on his way to Calvary. As we start the week, our nation finds itself in an interesting position. Unlike our cousins in Europe, we remain a church going nation with a majority who believe in God, or at least claim to. At the same time, it has become trendy to demagogue the Church.
