Gen. David Petraeus is so concerned about the safety of our men and women in battle that he has publicly warned against a Florida pastor's plan to burn copies of the Quran on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America.

The "Muslim world" will "explode" if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the "Muslim world" not ready to "explode"?
It may just be a movie about one woman's spiritual journey of self-discovery, but the latest film release of Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" book starring Julia Roberts has inspired many of us to celebrate our lives in a more reflective way ... even in the clothes we wear. We may not be able to travel to India or Italy or Bali, but we can make the trek to Nordstrom and buy one of designer Sue Wong's exotic new caftans.
