Around the Blogosphere Today

Power Line (linked above) covers an excellent speech by Senator Joe Lieberman, who said in part: "There is something profoundly wrong when opposition to the war in Iraq seems to inspire greater passion than opposition to Islamist extremism."

NewsBusters ran a very amusing piece on the global warming expedition to the North Pole which was cancelled...due to extremely cold weather.

Speaking of global warming, some are calling on Al Gore to cool down his overheated rhetoric.

And yesterday at The Corner, Mark Steyn commented on a British proposal to fight global warming by tightly restricting travel with taxation: "Isn’t this the very definition of totalitarianism-lite? The Soviets restricted the movement of people through the bureaucratic apparatus of 'exit visas'. The Tories are proposing to do it through the crudest form of regressive taxation."

Remember the imams who engaged in "grievance theater" by acting provocatively at the airport and after boarding a flight in Minnesota? Many theorized the imams were on a terrorism test run or deliberately trying to weaken airline security by crying "racism" when none was involved. Well, now the imams are suing.

And so the attempt to weaken airline security goes on. We can only hope, for the sake of all future travelers, that U.S. Airways has the courage to fight this in court and doesn't take the easy way out and hand over settlement money to these extortionists.
