  1. Great post today Sarah! Wonder how long it will take the GOP & Tea Party heads to explode over the President shaking hands with Raul Castro. Oh, the horror! Blessed are the peacemakers…

    • Mr. Scott, perhaps some heads will explode. For sure, however, it was Christiane Amanpour’s head that exploded today when she commented that Aretha Franklin’s gig at the memorial was a warmup for Obama. Yes, that’s what she said.

      Tell me, Scott, whether liberals are interested in Mandela here or in Obama. We know the answer to that, just as we knew the liberals’ position back in ’07 when the man with only two years experience as a US senator thought himself fit to lead the country. Then, on “coronation day” itself, Tom Brokaw and his anchor guest were telling us that they really didn’t know who Obama was. Interesting that media people never did any probing before the election–or since.

      Just thought I’d share with you some facts about your president that you might not get from watching CNN, MSNBC or the 3 broadcast “news” outlets.

  2. For a much clearer picture of where the Mormon Church has slowly migrated from, there is a valuable letter from a Mormon “Apostle” to then Governor George Romney of Michigan about the ‘vicious legislation’ of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A photocopy of the original letter can be found here: http://www.boston.com/news/daily/24/delbert_stapley.pdf
