For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

"Keep Your Powder Dry"

Five minutes of Fred Thompson's impromptu speech at the Iowa State Fair.

Sure sounds like he's running. In fact he stated to a woman who said she was "in limbo" on whether or not to support him: "We'll be in your face so much you'll be sick of us."

And he looks like he's running. He appears to have slimmed down to a healthy "fighting weight" like he's ready for a race or something. And he has greatly improved his impromptu speaking skills--I see no note cards, prepared text, or teleprompters, and yet he speaks on important issues so comfortably.

Yes, he's running. And he's likely to run past the others all the way to the White House.

Great on his feet. That's not your father's Ford or Bush I.
