Check out my latest project: Conservatism Repackaged, a Facebook page where I’ll create humorous memes and similar content for convenient sharing.
You’re the first to know about it. It only has one meme up so far, but please follow or “like” the page now so that you’ll be notified when I add more. This message will self-destruct.

You may not have heard that there have already been other attacks since then, such as the St. Valentine’s Day shooting at a free-speech event in Denmark (CBS, Mark Steyn, more Steyn), or the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
