    THOUSANDS of Tea Party Patriots turned out today in Madison, Wisconsin, in support of Republican Governor Scott Walker and his plans to correct the state’s financial future. It was an amazing turnout considering the Saturday rally was only announced on Friday morning. Oh… And we paid our own way. The tea party patriots filled the state capital grounds from the steps to the street over 100 yards back. There were so many Walker supporters there that you couldn’t here the speakers from the stage in the back of the crowd. The AP today estimated that 70,000 protesters turned out in...

    Americas Settled 15,000 Years Ago, Study Says Stefan Lovgren for National Geographic NewsMarch 13, 2008 A consensus is emerging in the highly contentious debate over the colonization of the Americas, according to a study that says the bulk of the region wasn't settled until as late as 15,000 years ago. Researchers analyzed both archaeological and genetic evidence from several dozen sites throughout the Americas and eastern Asia for the paper. "In the past archaeologists haven't paid too much attention to molecular genetic evidence," said lead author Ted Goebel, an archaeologist at Texas A&M University in College Station. "We have brought...

    Egypt's Oldest Known Art Identified, Is 15,000 Years Old Dan Morrison in Cairo, Egypt for National Geographic News July 11, 2007 Rock face drawings and etchings recently rediscovered in southern Egypt are similar in age and style to the iconic Stone Age cave paintings in Lascaux, France, and Altamira, Spain, archaeologists say. "It is not at all an exaggeration to call it 'Lascaux on the Nile,'" said expedition leader Dirk Huyge, curator of the Egyptian Collection at the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels, Belgium. "The style is riveting," added Salima Ikram of the American University in Cairo,...

    15,000 wrecks lie buried on Irish seabed Andrew Bushe LUSITANIA, the Cunard Line steamer sunk by a German U-boat off the coast of Cork in 1915 drowning all 1,200 on board, is one of the most famous shipwrecks in Irish waters. But a new study has discovered that the seas surrounding Ireland are littered with evidence of thousands of other maritime tragedies, with as many as 15,000 wrecks resting on the seabed. Following one of the most extensive research programmes ever carried out by underwater archeologists, the number of wrecks discovered has soared from an initial examination six years ago...

    Liberia to get 15,000 UN troops The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a force of up to 15,000 peacekeepers for Liberia. Liberia as a whole remains highly unstable The resolution, proposed by the United States, sets up a UN mission in Liberia to monitor last month's peace agreement between the government and rebels. The main task of the force will be to restore security and to devise a plan to disarm more than 30,000 militiamen, including child soldiers, who are still active in the countryside.

    In Detroit, the world's second oldest profession is taking aim at knocking out the world's oldest profession. Never mind that many people who have received, or are receiving, a paycheck from city government are or have been involved in prostitution in some way. The hunt is on. Except, in this case they are not exactly going after the prostitutes, per se. Hassling the working girls seems to be a lost cause. They pop up faster than spring dandelions on city owned property. And, like the dandelions, there seems to be a large bumper crop of new young ones every year....
