While I don't want to be a promoter of David Horowitz, the liberal journalist and '60 peace protester and organizer, I was amazed to hear him on FoxNews attack the "peace movement" war protesters. He confirmed what I learned from more conser- vative sources of the leftist, communist organizations organizing and footing the bill for these protests. He condemned them in the strongest terms. His website, FrontPagemag.com, is unabashedly supportive of the action in Iraq and as you peruse the site champions many conservative causes, while retaining the liberal roots of his youth. He actively pursues free speech rights on college campus, but comes out on the side opposing the leftist university professors and administrators and continues to defend the civil rights of the broad spectrum of minority groups (including gays and Christians) according to the bio on his site. Interestingly, his civil rights work includes teaming with Ward Connerly (whose fame is in promoting affirmative action repeal) on an anti-racial profiling proposal, the Racial Privacy Initiative.

They called this a "Peace" march?

The week started out with this shot of our back yard as a respite from the war rhetoric and ended with this inspiring photo of the US flag with the emblem of a cross in the star field. Many Christians wish the effect was as great on our nation.
This beautiful photo of a giant flag in Arizona is authentic and unretouched. The person who took the picture couldn't believe the image created by the sun's rays. Nice of them to share with the world!
Since moving in last fall Karen and I have been working feverishly on the inside of our home while leaving the outside alone. The back yard is very small (as is the whole lot) and we wanted something nice there without too much work. There is so much shade about 50% of the St. Augustine grass died and I really didn't want a lot of grass any way. The homeowners association takes care of the front, but the back, since we fenced it in, is ours to do. So we decided to patio about 25% and turn the other half into a garden area with ground cover (English Ivy or such) over part of that. Last week I put in the pond and worked out some of the details on it yesterday (Wed). Now with the azaleas, mums, impatients, marigolds and alyssum and variegated ornamental grasses about half the garden area is done. This is the area that catches the most sun. For the rest of the garden I thinking of ginger and other plants not requiring much sun. The back porch is a much more pleasant place to be now.
