St. Valentine's Day Musings

Here are some items related to Valentine's Day, from around the internet (will be updated during the day):

Over at the always terrific Stop the ACLU, Jay has posted about: Muslims Advised Not To Celebrate Valentines. Good old "St. Valentine was an enemy of Islam."

Valentine or Valentinus took part in planning and attacking Cordoba, once a well-known centre of Islam in Spain, causing its downfall.
Good for him.

Over at National Review, they have a number of articles, including:

Two Symposiums
Women We Love
Men We Love

And: Cons in Love: Love in the conservative world, which includes recommendations of two of my favorites, Jane Austen's Persuasion and, my absolute favorite, Pride and Prejudice.
