Update 88: A 'muchas gracias' to the bloggers who linked to a Cato column I wrote in 2000. And I have no idea why the Cato Institute chose to resurrect it, yesterday, but maybe Hillary will complain. Teehee.
Update 89: Happy Heart Day everybody. My valentine is in Lancaster, PA. (Life!) Today's book recommendation: Men and Marriage by George Gilder, because it's a powerful, positive, and pleasurable reminder of why men need women to 'civilize' them.
Update 90: Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys (and drive under the influence). OSU basketball Coach Eddie Sutton at the wheel: "Witnesses described Sutton's sports utility vehicle as driving dangerously and erratically, forcing cars to swerve out of the way before he hit another SUV from behind at about 60 mph, according to police reports released Monday." This ugly incident abruptly put a halt to his coaching career. But the grim Sean Sutton formally takes over for dad. How clubby.
Update 91: It's the Valentine's Day Carnival of Homeschooling! Number 7 is hosted at Bev's site.
