Glenn Miller recently began a study on Christmas. The first audio file is posted, and it's more than two hours long.

Mike Licona has a review of Brian Flemming's DVD that I discussed earlier this year.

Here's a good gift idea for Christmas 2006. But save some money for the cereal, action figures, and pajamas, too.

Jeff Jacoby has a good column about media coverage of the situation in Iraq. Here's part of it:

"Every death in Iraq is heartbreaking. The 2,000th fatality was neither more nor less meaningful than the 1,999 that preceded it. But if anything makes the death toll remarkable, it is how historically low it is. Considering what the war has accomplished so far -- the destruction of the region's bloodiest dictatorship, the liberation of 25 million Iraqis, the emergence of democratic politics, the withdrawal of Syrian troops from Lebanon, the abandonment by Libya of its nuclear weapons program -- it is hard to disagree with Norman Podhoretz, who notes in the current Commentary that these achievements have been 'purchased at an astonishingly low cost in American blood when measured by the standards of every other war we have ever fought.'"
