FRED BARNES:: Charles Colson, 1931-2012 | The Weekly Standard

BY FRED BARNES I don’t remember when I first heard from Chuck Colson. Most likely it was in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Nor do I recall whether he called or sent a letter. But I was flattered he had bothered to get in touch with me. That I remember. I’d never met Colson, didn’t cover the Nixon White House where he’d become semi-famous for playing ... Go To Article

PETHOKOUKIS:: Imagine if Steve Jobs were the GOP nominee … – The Enterprise Blog

The NYTimes story on Apple’s aggressive-but-legal tax avoidance strategies got me to thinking about the Democratic rap against Mitt Romney: He’s had all the advantages in life.
