Weathering the Politicians
Making Sense, by Michael ReaganYesterday I read an interesting article in Newsweek about the connection between tornadoes and climate change.Newsweek's story explained how top climate scientists were concerned about several ominous and fundamental changes occurring in Earth's weather patterns.
A Conspiracy Fact
I've been assured my in-laws don't read my column. However, because of their mix of shame, guilt and blame, I'll be vague on some details. They've fallen on hard times. No one wants to talk about it, let alone have it written about and syndicated.But I think their story is illustrative.

The Dudes Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks
In Reykjavik, Iceland there is the Icelandic Phallological Museum, which boasts the world's largest collection of penises. For around $20 you can gawk at the members of many different species: some human. Most in jars. Some more jarring than others. In Lima, Peru, the Museo de Larco has an enormous collection of pre-Columbian pottery. One section is devoted solely to "erotic pottery" some pre-dating the Inca and others pre-dating Christ. I'm not spoiling anything here: There are a lot of clay pots representing the male anatomy.

Mencken called it "a full mile of Klansmen and their ladies." The man sitting in the White House, Calvin Coolidge, was a member of the Klan. The president before him, Warren Harding, was also a noted Klansman. The fraternity preaching pure "100 percent Americanism" (anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant, anti-non-white) boasted of five million members — nearly 15 percent of the population in the 1920s. They were in positions of power. They were everywhere. And here they were marching for hours around the National Mall.
