Day of infamy


WASHINGTON — The United States will restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba and open an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than a half-century after the release of an American contractor held in prison for five years, President Obama announced on Wednesday.

In a deal negotiated during 18 months of secret talks hosted largely by Canada and encouraged by Pope Francis, who hosted a final meeting at the Vatican, Mr. Obama and President Raúl Castro of Cuba agreed in a telephone call to put aside decades of hostility to find a new relationship between the United States and the island nation just 90 miles off the American coast..

Where is our moral ground?

 Where is our moral ground?

 Our justification for a military strike against Syria based on the apparent use of deadly nerve agents that killed close to 400 people is morally illogical if not outright ludicrous. I ask you, what moral high ground we have vis-à-vis our annual abortion rate of over a million babies a year, saline solutions versus sarin gases, what difference does it make.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, since 1973 when our Supreme Court legalized abortion, roughly 50 million legal induced abortions have been performed in the United States, an annual average rate of over 1.2 million babies a year! This number is significant since it reminds me of the 1.5 Armenians that died in the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1918, which included all but a few members of my family.

 God helps us!

The Texan who stole the show at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral

Posted By fter being carried through the streets of London in a flag-draped coffin aboard a gun carriage, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was laid to rest this morning in St. Paul’s Cathedral. But the big story of the day wasn’t Maggie. No, it was a 19-year-old Texan who stole the show from the deceased Iron Lady.



With a poise reminiscent of the elder Thatcher, Amanda Thatcher, Margaret’s granddaughter, delivered a reading from Epistles that has the British media agog. Amanda, who lives with her mother in Texas, chose a rather militant passage that calls on believers to «put on the whole armour of God.» But the reading was a good one, delivered with remarkable grace by a young woman suddenly thrust into the international spotlight. In a tweet that nicely summarized the breathless British media reaction, Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland couldn’t help but speculate «whether somewhere a Texas Republican operative is watching Amanda Thatcher thinking ‘Wonder if she has political ambitions…'»

So who is Amanda Thatcher, and how did Maggie Thatcher’s granddaughter end up in Texas of all places? Amanda is the daughter of Mark Thatcher and the Texas heiress Diane Burgdorf, who underwent an ugly, highly public divorce from Mark (Diane went so far as to detail her ex-husband’s history of infidelity in a broadside published in a British paper). When Amanda’s father became embroiled in an acrimonious business dispute, Diane agreed to move her family to South Africa. But after Mark was arrested in 2004 over his alleged involvement in a coup in Equatorial Guinea, the marriage finally dissolved. Amanda now lives in Texas with her mother, stepfather, and brother Michael. She is reportedly deeply religious, has carried out missionary work in China, and attends the University of Richmond in Virginia.
