Sunday Evening Recommended Reads

Mark Steyn: "Here's the lesson of the past three years: The UN kills."

Frederica Mathewes-Green opines about the persistent admiration of Jesus and the upcoming 5/19/2006 release of The Da Vinci Code:
When the DaVinci Code hoopla is all said and done, it will still be Jesus that we’re talking about. It’s Jesus whose face on the cover sells a million magazines, whose name instills widespread awe. Even people despise Christians paradoxically admire their Lord. In discussions of religion nearly everything is up for grabs, yet on this one point there’s widespread agreement. Why do people instinctively admire Jesus?
Hugh Hewitt is noticeably contrarian when it comes to GOP prospects this November:
Suddenly, the debate is back where it ought to be, on the war, judges, taxes, spending and also border security. The 12 words have [become] 15:
  • Win the war.
  • Confirm the judges.
  • Cut the taxes.
  • Control the spending.
  • Secure the border.
Democrats stand for the opposite of each proposition.
Shane Raynor writes about the importance of eating together:
Although it often seemed like a drag at the time, I now have fond memories of family meals when I was growing up, especially Sunday lunches. I also remember my mom making me turn off the TV when we had dinner. I thought she was being so old-fashioned then. Now I know why she did it. The truth is, that was the only time we were able to talk some days.
I have fond memories from the family dinner table as well. I can remember the times that my sister and I strategized about making our green beans "disappear."
