Reading material

Some good stuff today that should be of interest.

First, the Weekly Standard's feature on media bias, coupled with Jonah Goldberg's Journos are People too column.

Next, a DON'T MISS excerpt from Natan Sharansky's book, The Case for Democracy, courtesy NRO. This one deserves a quick excerpt:
For me, and for many other dissidents, the two men leading the forces of confrontation in America were Senator Henry Jackson and President Ronald Reagan. One a Democrat, the other a Republican, their shared conviction that the individual’s desire for freedom was an unstoppable force convinced them of the possibility of a democratic transformation inside the Soviet Union. Crucially, they also believed that the free world had a critical role to play in accelerating this transformation. Their efforts to press for democratic reform did not stem solely from humanitarian considerations. Like Sakharov, these men understood that the spread of human rights and democracy among their enemies was essential to their own nation’s security.

Also, Chris Muir's Day by Day Cartoon returned last Wednesday. Click my link and go check out the past week's worth of 'toons. We cannot recommend DbD highly enough.

Finally, Mark Steyn is back, to some degree. Yesterday he decried British rules that discourage citizens from defending themselves IN THEIR OWN HOUSES.
