Monday's column: Hollywood receives a lethal rejection

Last week, Stanley “Tookie” Williams was executed. The attempt to save the life of the celebrated children’s author (and quadruple murderer who co-founded the violent Crips gang in L.A.) was the latest in a long line of misdirected flops put out by Hollywood activists such as Sean Penn, Mike Farrell, Danny Glover, and the rest of the usual suspects.

In many ways, Hollywood activism took as big a hit as Tookie did. Read about it in my column this week, “Hollywood receives a lethal injection“.

Also, it’s been posted by the fine folks at See what the Freepers are saying.

In all honesty, I knew that when I opened the column with the “alleged” murderer line that the sarcasm would escape some. Based on today’s email and a couple of the Free Republic responses, it did escape a few, but not many.

“Penn and Farrell, party of 400, your table is ready…”

Note: My first book, “‘Because That’s the Way God Decided to Do It!’ – A conservative father fields confusing questions from his confused kids about a confusing world – Inadequate explanations of politics, parenting, economics, war, technology, and the future of the human race” is now available in paperback or as a downloadable Ebook.

I’ve set up a page containing short samples from each chapter. Click here for chapter samples.
