The Houston Chronicle has a story about a folding bike leading the news today: click here. Unbelievable.

The Austin American-Statesman has a story about investing in land, etc. around the new racetrack. None of the main news stories cover the crisis in the Middle East. click here.

This nation is finished. No one in leadership or media, both of which have a responsibility to the people, have any interest in the welfare of the people to inform them as to what is actually happening. Both have been subverted by evil forces which intend to enslave the people and are aiding and abetting that process.

My local paper has local news as the top story. National and international news are covered in their respective sections.

Apparently we’re the drunkest county in the state.

From The Arizona Repugnant

September 14, 2012 | Front Page

Libyan security-force infiltrators may have aided consulate attack

Heavily armed militants used a protest of an anti-Islam film as a cover and may have had help from inside Libyan security in their deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate, a senior Libyan official said Thursday.

Analysis: Violence reflects struggle between extremists, reformers

The violence across the heartland of the Arab Spring reaches far beyond the cries of anger against America and deep into one of the region's most high-stakes showdowns: ultraconservative Islamists seeking to challenge the new leadership struggling in Egypt and Libya.

Feds order Sheriff Babeu to retrieve items he improperly loaned

A Pentagon agency that oversees surplus military goods has ordered the Pinal County Sheriff's Office to retrieve hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise it requisitioned and "loaned" to non-police organizations in violation of the program's rules.

TOPS at weight loss

Ken Laswell and Nancy Barnard Martin share a common denominator in their constant battle to maintain a healthy body weight.

Both are former truck drivers — a sedentary profession that often leads to obesity, diabetes and other health-related issues.

Charlotte Observer print edition:

Embassies under siege as Arab violence spreads

The story was picked up from the New York Times.

The online edition promotes the #2 headline in the print edition to the lead story:

Corporate cash paid DNC's arena fee

The story is by Tim Funk of the Observer, and notes Obama's evidently broken pledge not to use corporate funds for the actual convention here in Charlotte.

The Observer leans left, and is often prone to headlines like "Banks hike fees; women and minorities suffer most." On this particular morning, however, I have no complaints about the lead headlines. Not to worry; I'm sure I'll find something to raise my blood pressure on their editorial page.

Lol!

Norman Rockwell-ish!

There’s a website out there that has indexed and scanned in something like 19 million pages of small town newspapers from upstate NY, where I grew up.

There are short articles about me and my brothers and sisters, I found an article about my dad having to miss school because he slipped on the ice and broke his arm when he was about ten ears old...

I still remember the cotton candy and small town Ferris wheels...
