Supporting Families of Our Soldiers
Dennis broadcasts from Oceanside, Califorina, home of Camp Pendleton to raise money to help the family of National Guard members and reservists who went to the Gulf to defend our freedom and bring it to Iraq. Also: Dennis comments on a very foolish piece in the Times of London written by America-hater novelist, Norman Mailer. He contrasts it with a deeply moving piece by Dorothy Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal about a Marine's return to his home town.
Arab Americans Must Take Lead on Arab Freedom

Death Penalty Opposition: Perverse Logic
Death Penalty opponents' latest argument is that because someone who murders a white is more likely to be executed than someone who murders a black the death penalty is, ipso facto, racist. This argument has two big flaws: 1) The logical answer would be to execute more killers of blacks. 2) The reason more blacks aren't executed is because juries in liberal districts are very reluctant to give out the death penalty to black murderers. In conservative districts, juries have no problem giving the death penalty to white murderers.
