Janet Reno, Secretary of Homeland Security, has thankfully reaffirmed her outright commitment to catching terrorists, “where ever, however, whatever and whoever they are . . . even if they parade as children or members of the National Socialist Party. In a statement released today which resounded with historically important eloquence, Napolitano said,
We shall not flag, we shall not fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in LaGuardia, O’Hare and Logan, and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength to keep them out of the air. We shall defend our continent whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this nation or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the Transportation Security Administration will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old.
(Above is an original version. The White House later required that Secretary Napolitano delete the reference to a deity.)

In 1965, the Episcopal Church, once referred to as “the Republican party at prayer”, had 3.6 million members, specifically “baptized membership” which some analysts regard as a better figure than “communicants”. The number of Episcopalians has declined for 46 straight years. In 1970, there were 3.5; in 2001 there were 3.2 million members. There are now around 1.75 million. Episcopalians are shrinking at a rate faster than any other major religion in the U.S. Where did the almost 2 million Episcopalians go over nearly half a century?
You might say “On récolte ce que l'on sème” or “Qui sème le vent récolte la tempête.” A couple of my friends prefer “Les poulets se retournent contre nous.” The last, a French version of “the chickens come home to roost” . . . as opposed to “As ye sow, so shall ye reap” and “Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind” . . . is a little different from the others
