Revenge Of the Sith:
A Parent's Review
by William Stone, III
As anyone who knows me is aware, I've been concerned about George
Lucas' final entry in the Star Wars film saga, Episode III: Revenge
Of the Sith. This concern had nothing to do with the fact that the
two preceding movies in what's called the "Prequel Trilogy" have

by Ron Beatty
Ladies and gentlemen, I think it is time, and far past
time, for all of us, as Americans, as free men and women, to stand up for
freedom, with all that that entails. Many of us, if not most, have kind

Father's Rights Movement to Get English Invasion
by Wendy McElroy
Fathers 4 Justice (F4J)a pressure group that originated in
Britain to crusade for father's rights, especially child custody and
