Action Alert!

I can't share Mark Steyn's optimism in his current Spectator article (thanks to Otto-da-fe), but I think he makes a telling point in this paragraph:

A few weeks back I was strolling along the Boulevard de Maisonneuve in Montreal when I saw a Muslim woman across the street, all in black, covered head to toe, the full hejab. She was passing a condom boutique, its window filled with various revolting novelty prophylactics ... It was a perfect snapshot of the internal contradictions of multicultural diversity. In 30 years' time, either the Arab lady will still be there, or the condom store, but not both. Which would you bet on?

As population expert Nicholas Eberstadt is fond of saying, "the future belongs to the fertile."
