A decade ago I woke up one morning with such a loud ringing in my right ear that I thought the fire alarm was going off. And over the next few hours I had a bout of vertigo while throwing up the entire time. It was plain awful.

I went...

Last night on 60 Minutes there was a 14-minute segment about Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul). It was an honest look at religious freedom (or lack thereof) inside one of America's military allies. It is a story that should be seen by the leaders of the free...

In a New York Times op-ed today, General John M. Shalikashvili (ret.) wrote a well-reasoned article about rethinking the U.S. policy of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" in regard to gays serving in the military. I applaud him for this act of courage and common sense.
