Yesterday I noted the letter from Pliny the Younger to Emperor Trajan in 112 AD. Pliny had begun arresting and torturing Christians for the crime of, among other things, obeying the law. Think about that for a minute. It should be noted that Pliny the Younger had been given anonymous lists of who the Christians in his province were. As he wrote Emperor Trajan [A]s | Read More »
Not to be outdone in attack ad desperation by Mark Pryor, Abortion Barbie Wendy Davis has decided to accuse Greg Abbott of essentially being pro-cancer: As you might have guessed, the ad uses shock value to make up for what it lacks in factual accuracy.

After opening his campaign with the most I-Love-Jesus-y ad of this or any other recent decade, Mark Pryor has decided to go negative on Tom Cotton, who has been leading him in most recent polls. And under the theory that if you’re not going to go big, you should go home, Pryor has chosen to accuse Tom Cotton of being… | Read More »
