Has Doug Kmiec Truly Lost His Mind?

Posted by Eric (May 28, 2009 at 4:15 pm)

Doug KmiecListening to some of the meandering nonsense coming from Doug Kmiec during his recent debate with Hadley Arkes at Villanova University (Part 1) (Part 2), I began to wonder if he’d lost his mind.

Damon and the Dinosaurs, Part II

Posted by Eric (September 14, 2008 at 3:22 pm)

Tyranosaurus in an F-14The following was originally posted in the comments of my last post on Matt Damon’s urgent need to know whether Sarah Palin believes dinosaurs were here 4,000 years ago, “because she’s gonna have the nuclear codes”. My old high school buddy Jim Macchione turned up to defend Damon, and I wrote a lengthy reply, which my wife April suggested I make into a post. Which I did.

Jim writes:
