Dear Grace: In this election, many candidates seek our support.

What Happened at Fatima - Joseph Bottum

Here's a curious thought. Maybe the single most important person in the 20th century's long struggle against communism wasn't Ronald Reagan. Maybe it wasn't Karol Wojtyla or Margaret Thatcher.

Last week our ten-year-old son was encouraged by his teachers to write a letter to Tony Blair protesting the war in Iraq.
