    Wednesday Nov 1 | National Review Online

Lee, have become too controversial and are chasing away would-be parishioners.

    It was visible to the world in Manchester, Birmingham, and London in the days before the British general election June 8. It was visible on the baseball field in Alexandria, Va., on Wednesday morning as a Donald Trump hater and Bernie Sanders volunteer took a rifle and shot House majority whip Steve Scalise and four others while Republicans were practicing for Thursday's congressional ballgame.
