1. The ease with which certain liberal bloggers at venues like the Daily Beast and Gawker use the terminology of racists, bigots, and violent segregationists should give everyone pause, and it should tell leftists that we have a long way to go towards building a truly progressive media.

  3. Just one year ago, East Shellwood was one of the poorest neighborhoods in America. Its public schools were buckling under budget cuts and the crime rate was steadily increasing, while property values had hit an all-time low.

    Today, all of that has changed. East Shellwood is thriving, and shows no signs of slowing down. So what happened?

    Yep. The story goes that when Hitchcock was a small child, his father sent him to the police station and had him locked in a cell for a few minutes as a way to scare little Alfred straight. Afterwards, he had a lifelong fear and distrust of the police, and those themes cropped up quite frequently in his films.
