I have only been scared a handful of times in my life.  Of those, I was only terrified once. I've stood up for my family or friends, but I've never moved a mountain, led a cause.  I'm not sure one has presented itself to me.  I'm certain I have never sought one out.  I've never...

To be angry with Glenn Beck would be easy. So too, to conjure an ungenerous spirit of contempt for his acolytes who came from around the country to attend Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally this Saturday, would hardly take Herculean effort. His demented narcissism and their cult-like devotion...
