From blog correspondent Samer al-Batal
Where Anglicans fear to tread
ISTM the 'Protestant but still Christian' group are the majority overall, with looney liberalism the favoured view among the clergy. What the survival of the Anglican Communion may all hang on is whether it recognizes this group as a province or even cuts ECUSA loose.

Meet Libertarian presidential candidate Aaron Russo

Samer's pick from today:

Scared, trigger-happy young males
by Doug Casey
A highlight:

It's strange how you never know what you're going to get with a president. Few people remember that Franklin Roosevelt ran on what was almost a radical free-market platform in 1932, decrying the tax, spend and regulate policies of Hoover. One might have thought you'd have gotten a fiscal conservative with Reagan – "If not us, who? If not now, when?" – but his policies sent the deficit through the roof. It was reasonable to anticipate a socialist disaster with Clinton, but government spending grew slower than the overall economy. Baby Bush, few now recall, made noises about personal freedom, and no more "nation building" in foreign hellholes.
