Who would have thought, only a few years ago, that our First Amendment right of free speech would be under attack on college campuses (of all places!)? But colleges are now a hotbed of political correctness and suppression of personal opinion. Progressives want to shield students from what they call “scary ideas.” They aren’t referring to “scary” Halloween costumes or frightening and bloody battles in history. These scary ideas are what we normal people call opinions and free speech, but the left insists they are new buzz words such as “trigger warnings,” “outgrowths of fragility,” or “sexual paranoia.”

The New York Fire Department has announced that they will no longer require potential firemen to pass a physical fitness test before they are hired. This test includes carrying a heavy load six feet, raising a ladder up a wall, and punching holes into a ceiling, all while receiving limited oxygen—in other words, the sort of things firefighters have to do while they’re fighting fires.

Voter ID laws are one of the hottest topics in our country. Many insist that providing a photo ID should be required in order to vote and would eliminate a lot of vote fraud. The left, however, has the idea that forcing voters to show proof of who they are in order to vote is a plot to keep people from voting. That is ridiculous. You and I can hardly transact business in this country without providing identification, so why would we not place the same protection on the integrity of our elections?

Eighty eight years ago today, on May 20, 1927, at 7:52 am, one of the greatest feats in aviation history began. Twenty-five-year-old Charles A. Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field in Long Island, New York in his silver monoplane called "The Spirit of St. Louis." You can see a thrilling reenactment of that momentous event in the great movie called “The Spirit of St. Louis” featuring Jimmy Stewart in his greatest role as the young pilot, Charles Lindbergh. You can view a replica of that tiny, fragile plane suspended from the ceiling in the terminal of the St. Louis Airport. The plane was named "The Spirit of St. Louis” because most of the money Lindbergh raised to finance this flight came from St. Louis, and the people I know who contributed to that project believe it was the best money they ever spent. They are so proud of being part of that historic flight.
