THE 'EURABIA' MYTH  —  A RASH of pop prophets tell us that Muslims in Europe are reproducing so fast and European societies are so weak and listless that, before you know it, the continent will become "Eurabia," with all those topless gals on the Riviera wearing veils.  —  Well, maybe not.

Quartet of ladies shows where we're headed  —  Have you seen a movie called ''Four Jills In A Jeep''?  Don't worry, it's not at the multiplex.  It came out in 1944.  A wartime movie, about the contribution of the gals to the big existential struggle.  Great title, and downhill after that.

Iraq Group a Study In Secrecy, Centrism  —  In the history of U.S. foreign policy, there's been nothing like it: a panel outside government trying to bail the United States out of a prolonged and messy war.  —  The innocuously titled Iraq Study Group, which has evolved into a parallel policy establishment …

Big People on Campus  —  ASK Sheana Director for a detailed description of herself, and chances are the word fat will come up.  It is not uttered with shame or ire or any sense of embarrassment; it's simply one of the things she is, fat.  —  "Why should I be ashamed?" said Ms. Director …
Daniel / Venezuela News And Views:
Apotheosis in Caracas: Rosales draws the biggest rally in Venezuela's History  —  I am just back from an event that even in my wildest dreams I could not believe it would ever happen.  The march or Rosales today and his rally was something that was never seen, something that nobody could have expected.
