From Michael Lawrence
  • On staying home: The principled non-voter often does a very good job of explaining to his friends and relatives the absurdities of the two-party system. The apathetic voter, on the other hand, still doesn’t know who Dick Cheney is.
  • Voluntarism and Islam or the Pope’s point at Regensburg. In a religiously neutral constitutional government the head’s religion is irrelevant but
    a far more relevant question for Barack Obama would be this: Do you think that God is not bound by the laws of “right and wrong,” for lack of a better term? THAT is the answer I would be interested in, and it is the matter that I would find to be an important starting point in dialogue with Muslims.
