Thirteen years ago, David Wilhelm, then chairman of the Democratic Party, told the conservative Christian Coalition that good Christians could belong to either major political party.

For decades, Americans have turned daily to the stoic comfort of their network anchors to watch history unfold. And even as viewers stray to the cable news channels’ non-stop coverage of the sensational, for 30 minutes each day — and longer in times of crisis — network anchors still draw millions who seek the days’ headlines from a familiar face.
Disaster may not be too strong a word for Rep. Katherine Harris’ Senate campaign.
Her makeup and formfitting clothes are mocked on national TV. Her flirty interview style embarrasses her campaign handlers. Staffers keep quitting in despair.
She’s been linked to a shady defense contractor, caught in fibs and scolded for telling voters that non-Christian politicians "legislate sin."

Classes began last week at the college where I work, reminding me once again why I have such a great job. What makes being a college professor so great?

It’s not the prestige, either; I teach at an excellent school, but it’s not exactly Harvard.
