NYC's Roosevelt House: History and education

It's not as well-known as other historic sites associated with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor, but a six-story Manhattan town house where the Roosevelts lived for decades is reclaiming its place in history as a living testament to their legacy. The home was given to Franklin and Eleanor as a wedding gift in 1908 by FDR's mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt.

National Review Online

Our Racist Anthem

To the columnist, Francis Scott Key's historic account of the 1814 defense of Fort McHenry gratuitously celebrates the horrors of war, "forc[ing] us to relive Key's emotional trauma during that long night 200 years ago" with "a kind of musical bombardment." Couching it as a compliment, Widmer claims the song serves the jingoistic purpose of "drown[ing] out bad news with bluster, brass and percussion."

Roger Simon:

"Hello, Iowa!" says Hillary Clinton, who has not set foot in Iowa for six years and eight months and in fact, until quite recently, has loathed the place. She cautiously enunciates each word from her prepared text, even the jokes.
