When your child has matured sufficiently to understand how the judicial system works, set a bedtime for him and then send him to bed an hour early. When he tearfully accuses you of breaking the rules, explain that you made the rules and you can interpret them in any way that seems appropriate to you, according to changing conditions.

In a few more days we will celebrate Xmas, the day we commemorate the birth of you-know-who ...

[P]oliticians are often eager to associate themselves personally with you-know-who, even
and especially

Wartime always brings expansions of state power, together with erosions of moral and constitutional standards.

When liberals clamor for 'diversity,' they don't necessarily mean they are ready to tolerate actual disagreement.

The prevailing notion is that the state should be neutral as to religion, and furthermore, that the best way to be neutral about it is to avoid all mention of it.
