The Whip Victor Davis Hanson, writing in the Wall Street Journal's OpinionJournal (registration required) again calls the European's bluff on their hypocritical attitudes toward America. VDH is always a good read . . .

Until postmodern Europe rightly assumes a role commensurate with its moral rhetoric, population, and economic strength, out of envy or pride it will often seek to undercut and occasionally embarrass the U.S.--at least up to that fine, though ambiguous, point of not quite alienating its hyperpower patron. For our part, we cannot ridicule Europe's present military impotence only to oppose its nascent efforts at a unified defense establishment. So go to it, Europe--one voice, one army, one U.N. Security Council seat!

Jacks win! Jacks win! Jacks win! Now, it's a bit silly I know to get excited about a college basketball team's tenth win occuring at the end of February, but these are my Jackrabbits. Not many teams get to end their season with a win. You gotta understand. It's a fan thing.

Lady Jacks, however, lose for the second time to arch-rival North Dakota State. Still, 20 wins in your first year in D-I and wins over Alabama, Kentucky, and Oklahoma State is not a bad thing. One more game to go for the Lady Jacks . . .

Note to editorial writers: Any editorial which includes both "quagmire" and "exit strategy" can safely be ignored if not ridiculed for showing an utter lack of comprehension of the post-9/11 world. No link here. You know who you are.

The Whip I've noticed an unfortunate tendency for the Morning Whip to become the Afternoon Whip. Discipline, Filbert, discipline.

Wichita police think they've got the BTK serial killer. I hope so.

It's almost March, which means it's Madness time. Is it time for John Chaney to go?

They're not eligible for the Big Dance for a while, but - - - Jackrabbits vs. Bison. Tonight. In Fargo. The Women. The Men. Gotta love college basketball.

Wal-Mart (select boo-hiss or hurrah based on your personal preference) is still out in NYC, but in to redevelop an aging shopping center in Kansas City.

The Whip Our good friends at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (sarcasm intended) have apparently realized that salt is bad.

Ladies and gentlemen, the cowbell. The cowbell.

You all probably knew this already, but Google Maps is quite cool.

Remote BHO exploit scanner.

Dave Piscitello apparently dislikes spyware as much or more than I do.

And, one of the motherships of the anti-spyware movement: spywareinfo.com.

The Whip Not much going on out there today, as far as I can tell. Some guy reportedly wanted to kill President Bush.

The Supreme Court apparently wants to rule on whether or not Million Dollar Baby is legal.

Look out, here comes Missouri State University.

California is still getting drenched, but apparently relief is in sight. Fortunately, Fox News Channel is breaking away from coverage of Bush in Europe and Michael Jackson to cover the undermining of a runway. Thank heavens for FNC.
