She's also inspirational.

Here's more from a blog I wrote last summer.

Panic, but don't panic!

That describes some of the swine flu rollercoaster coverage in the media.

Fox 6 says don't fall for scams.

High school soccer game in Milwaukee postponed due to swine flu

Tonight’s high school varsity girl’s soccer game between Milwaukee Riverside and Milwaukee South was postponed after Riverside became one of four Milwaukee Public Schools to be closed indefinitely because of the wine flu outbreak.

The game was scheduled to be played at 7:00 tonight at South Stadium. The Riverside team was on the field going through pre-game warm-ups when it received a call from a school official to leave the stadium immediately.

South Division had received a call before the team’s bus left the school for the stadium notifying the team that the game would not be played. Fans, officials, and stadium security were at the stadium, unaware of the development about Riverside High School.

And in a related story, this is huge.

We are not arrogant, Mr. President

“In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

President Obama in a prepared speech delivered before a campaign-style town hall meeting at the Rhenus Sports Arena in Strasbourg.

Columnist and radio talk show host Peter Heck of Kokomo, Indiana blasts President Obama for pulling a Jane Fonda: going overseas and apologizing for the United States.

What the president pulled was garbage. Peter Heck sums it up eloquently

Americans need not apologize to the world for their arrogance; rather, Americans should apologize to their forefathers for the arrogance of their president.

If Obama wishes to continue trampling the presidential tradition of showing class to former office holders and publicly trash Bush for his own personal gain, so be it.  But all Americans should make clear that no man - even if he is the president - will tarnish the legacy of those Americans who have gone before us.  Ours is not a history of arrogance.  It is a history of courage, self-sacrifice, and honor.”

It’s a great column.

And let's not forget....

Miss California goes campaigning

Miss California Carrie Prejean goes to Washington Thursday to help launch the pro-marriage campaign, “No Offense.”

From a National Organization for Marriage press release:

What happens when a young California beauty pageant contestant is asked ‘do you support same-sex marriage?’ She is attacked viciously for having the courage to speak up for her truth and her values.  But Carrie's courage inspired a whole nation and a whole generation of young people because she chose to risk the Miss USA crown rather than be silent about her deepest moral values.  ‘No Offense’ calls gay marriage advocates to account for their unwillingness to debate the real issue: gay marriage has consequences.”

Earlier today, Prejean defended her views on traditional marriage during an appearance at Liberty University.

It’s about time this country had a pro-traditional marriage movement.
