The Evolution of Property Rights

Newsweek has an article entitled Why Conservative Muslims Favor Free Trade. It’s a very good read and quite accurate coming from a publication based in The Great Satan.

The Omen

I took mein tochter to see The Omen.  It was a great movie and I was well pleased.  Why was it a great movie?
