  • Billy Graham returns to Los Angeles, site of his first crusade, for a Rose Bowl event this weekend. Rev. Graham is 86 years old and his health is failing but he marches on. "I'm trying to, hopefully, reach people of all persuasions with the Gospel in my job as a presenter of the Gospel of Christ." May thousands be reached in the Rose Bowl this weekend.
  • This opinion piece explains the roots of the President's immigration proposal. Some good points here - I'm not sure where I stand on this issue.
  • Does any president have a record like Pres. Bush's regarding "affirmative action" hiring? Gonzales, Powell, Rice, Abraham, Hughes, Paige, and more. (See "W, by ignoring race, makes racial history") Unlike others who talk a good talk but act differently (I'm hearing echoes of candidate Kerry, "faith without works is dead.."), Pres. Bush says skin color or gender doesn't matter - excellence does. And then he goes out and acts on that principle.
  • Speaking of Condi Rice, from this story we learn she was a competitive ice skater, loves sports (Cleveland Browns fan), is a sometime companion of former 49er reciever Gene Washington, is an accomplished pianist, and was influenced toward political science from a speech by Madeleine Albright's father. Phew! I love what she once said to a sales clerk at a jewelry counter when the clerk showed her the cheap stuff, "Let's get one thing straight. You're behind the counter because you have to work for $6 an hour. I'm on this side asking to see the good jewelry because I make considerably more."
  • One more plaudit for John Ashcroft.
