Most of this controversy is to be expected. I would say that there is probably something to some race concerns with Lewis. He certainly would not have our modern sensibilities about such issues. But those lining up against Narnia are sure to over sell the issue and turn Lewis's stories into something they are not. In the end the stories have a Christian view point and that is simply something that those who claim to preach tolerance can not tolerate.

I think the more that read this book the better. It is a great piece of children's lit and should not be kept out of the class room because it has a Christian premise. It will hardly brainwash kids. If this author saw fit to read it to his daughter but is convinced it is covertly going to turn kids into... Gasp... Christians then he has some inconsistencies to deal with.

I have been watching the Miers situation for a few days now and have come to the conclusion that while she may not be the best pick, she is a fine and solid choice. I think other issues are boiling over with conservatives and her nomination is where the frustration is being vented. While I am not a fan of the NY Times I would have to say this is a pretty good story. I would like to add a comment to this story, that I really do not have much use for Gary Bauer. He seems to have a personal issue with the Bush family and sides against the President as often as he can, which supports my premise that a lot of this is not really about Miers. Everyone needs to calm down a bit.

...Goldberg's book is finally available for pre-order. He has been developing this for a number of years. Born out of his annoyance at being called a fascist for being a conservative, when really fascism is a socialistic system far and away from conservatism. Much closer to... well liberalism.
