Read the Democrat-Gazette Voices page

There is always a load of solid informative material on the Voices page of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. That includes my well-considered column every Monday morning. Today, Dana Kelly explains how, FINALLY, ONCE AND FOR ALL, AND CONCLUSIVELY, the Supreme Court has settled all issues surrounding gun control.

Oh, yeah. It was 5-4, bit it’s settled.

My Monday column concerns the other important case last week. I deal with Christian Legal Society v. Martinez. The Supreme Court ruled that the University of California Hastings College of Law acted properly by excluding the CLS because it required members to sign a statement of belief. How will I decide this case? You must wait till Monday!

BUT I digress. You really need to grab a copy of today’s paper to catch the always witty and provocative “Letters.’ Catch this thoughtful analysis of Democratic Congressional Candidate Joyce Elliott from local intellectual William Woodford.

Orwell modeled Big Brother on Josef Stalin, and Elliott is a member of the ethnic group that celebrates Stalinists W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson as part of its heritage on our postage stamps.

Elliott also is a member of the ethnic group that believes that America lost its moral authority by defending Indochina against Communist aggression and is also a supporter of Bill Clinton, who is unrepentant for supporting Ho Chi Minh’s war of aggression.

Woodford neglects to identify the ethnic group of which he is a member, but I would be willing to bet it is the one that sold human beings as property. Opps, there I go again!

The Democrat-Gazette is a subscription site (ArkansasOnline.com), so it might cost you something to read it. Owning up to my obvious conflict of interest, the paper has loads of good stuff you will not find anyplace else.
