Tony's Suggested Reading Assignments.

If you do not have time to read anything else the rest of this weekend make sure you read the next two reading assignments. They are must reads.

Here is the first one, a column from Victor Davis Hanson who writes we're on the Brink of Madness. and points out that we have been there before. In short, if we wish to learn what was going on in Europe in 1938, just look around. excellent read.

The second must read is from Barbara Lerner who writes a column we're losing World War IV and tells us how to get back on track to victory.

Thomas Sowell has an interesting take on service in the military. and brings up the question do we need to bring back the draft? He says there was a time in our country when most in Congress and the media had served in the military but that is no longer the case and says that it is hurting our military. Although I am definately not in favor of a draft Sowell makes some very interesting and compelling points. As always a good read.

This is kind of interesting. According to news reports, the two front runners for the 2008 Republican and Democratic nominations are drinking buddies. It's said that Hillary Clinton and John McCain held a Vodka drinking contest.

Oh my, glad I wasn't there... A bottle of Vodka with the two of them in the room with me that could get ugly real fast.

It is not sure who won the contest as details seem to be a bit hazy... McCain did say he was surprised how much fun Clinton could be and said she was like one of the guys...
