There are two new articles.

  • Michelle Rene writes Katrina: The Black and White of It All. Rene captures the plight of New Orlean inhabitants after the raging storm cleared the area. The coverage, both the photo journalism and on-air anchor editorials, is placed under a microscope to uncover its meaning.
  • Wendy McElroy writes Parental Rights vs. Public Schools. McElroy divulges a battle that is taking place in a public school concerning diversity education. The article examines the degree to which parents have the right to modify their childrens' curricula.

There are four updates to report:

  1. Parents Must Assert Rights Over School Authorities by Wendy McElroy. Follow McElroy's examples as she uncovers the intrusiveness of public schools. McElroy advocates we parent our kids more than schools attempt to do.
  2. To Whom Much Is Given... by Asoka Selvarajah. Look at George Weiss, a multimillionaire who gives money to inner city minorities so that they can go to college and fulfill their dreams. Selvarajah claims that successful people follow a Rule of Abundance.
  3. Why Does Science Rise and Fall? by Francois Tremblay. This article examines the quizzical nature of science, as it is interpreted and used by scientists and non-scientists, which determines a cyclical pattern through history.
  4. Bic Cops by Tom Pagels. The war on terrorism has taken our country to confront a new target. Pagels has a humorous cartoon to place it in the proper perspective.

Iraqis Turn Out To Vote

There was a considerable amount of debate concerning the will of Iraqis and whether or not they wanted freedom. Despite the long-standing belief of compassion within traditional liberal philosophy, liberals wanted to condemn Iraqi citizens to the will of terrorists. Some liberals believed Iraqis had either no desire for freedom or no intellect to appreciate it. Such racist and elitist beliefs were obviously wrong.
