Our First PresidentOur First PresidentThe following was published in Townhall on George Washington's real birthday (and coincidentally Ash Wednesday this year), February 22nd, a date we used to celebrate just for him instead of for "presidents."  Dissident Prof was happy to report that the column was picked up by Pew Sitter, an online Catholic News Portal.  Stephen Browne also wrote to say he enjoyed the column and that it reminded him of naming his son George, in Polish Jerzy, when he was born a couple weeks after 9/11.  His name is Jerzy Washington Browne and you can read the account, including about dealing with the Polish bureaucracy that forbids certain names, at his blog, here.

Protestors Who MatterProtestors Who MatterDissident Prof notes Time Magazine's celebration of the Protestor by its designation of the Protestor as the Person of the Year.  Some Protestors, however, are more equal than others and the U.S. media turned its gaze on the Protestor from one of the most pampered and flattered groups in history: the American college student, who ostensibly were inspired by protests in the Middle East.  The equally self-flattering media, however, little noted the assault on Poland by the communist leftovers.  Ewa Thompson, Professor of Slavic Studies, here brings us up to date on the alarming developments.
