Prager H3: Dennis discusses the issue of divorce. The ideal is a lifelong marriage, but a truly bad marriage is essentially life imprisonment, and that punishment should be given only to murderers.

Prager H2: USAToday center front page story wonders whether the election will be a show down between the young (they support Obama) and the not young (they support Romney)… Conservatives want change as much as liberals… Colorado prosecutors need time to consider whether to seek the death penalty for the Aurora mass murderer. What do they have to think about? He should executed as soon as possible.

Prager H3: Sir Paul McCartney played “Hey Jude” in the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic games in London… when it came to the chorus he asked just the “fellas” to sing, then the “ladies.” Dennis wonders why not another round for the “Others,” those that refuse to be labeled man or woman. Dennis also comments about two great columns… Daniel Henninger’s America’s Two Economies, and Ross Douthat’s Defining Religious Liberty Down.
Prager H2: Dennis talks about his appearance on the Hannity show last week. The topic was Chick-fil-a versus the pro-same sex marriage protestors.

Prager H1: Dennis reflects on the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic games in London, Romney’s comments, the Greek tweet, the developing situation in Syria, Woman’s Volleyball uniforms, and the moment of silence in remembrance of the athletes killed in Munich 1972. He points out that it doesn’t both most of the Muslim world what happened in Munich… what bothers them is the remembrance… the moment of silence.
Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda. A Best of Prager Hour compiled with Open Lines hours from January of 2011.
