    The nonprofit organization Students for Sensible Drug Policy announced late last week it has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Education alleging that the department is refusing to release state-by-state data on the number of students affected by a law barring them from receiving financial aid because they have a drug conviction unless SSDP pays a hefty fee for the service. The student group wants information about the impact of the Higher Education Act's (HEA) drug provision, authored by arch-drug warrior Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN), and in effect since 2000. SSDP is part of a large coalition of student,...

    OLYMPIA – Three years after getting drunk, blowing through a stop sign and triggering a wreck that left her passenger critically injured, a former Idaho resident has filed a $1.5 million claim against Washington's Pend Oreille County for not detaining her before she caused the crash. In her claim, Ashlen Lee says that on June 12, 2002, a county sheriff's deputy stopped her truck around 3:30 a.m. and could see that she had been drinking. But after quizzing her, the deputy let the 17-year-old drive away. The officer said he'd give them a warning," said Lee's attorney, W. Russell Van...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 31) - Robby Gordon was not being critical of Danica Patrick when he said she had an unfair weight advantage in the Indianapolis 500. Rather, he said he was simply discussing a flaw in the Indy Racing League's rules. "The only thing I was saying was that I have a problem with the rule, not any particular driver," Gordon said Tuesday. "I've been impressed with Danica from the first time she got in an IRL car earlier this year, and I certainly did not mean to disrespect her or any other driver." Patrick wowed the racing world...

    TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking. As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts...

They invented the idea of moving from room to room, carrying objects that you could use to get past obstacles, and creatures that moved around and did things in the game world. Their game was pure text -- the user typed text commands and then received text descriptions of the room he or she was in, and...

    MILWAUKEE - John Treslley shakes his head in awe when he thinks about his 20-year-old son driving a Hummer through the minefields of Iraq. "I wish I had half the guts he has," Treslley, 47, says in a whisper. Back in 1977, when Treslley was that age, the notion of military duty never crossed his mind. The draft ended in 1973, and two years later, so did the Vietnam War. "I was busy in those days playing football, drinking lots of beer and chasing women," says Treslley, a pilot and former game farm operator in Hayward, Wis. All across America,...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- An appeals court Tuesday revived part of a class-action lawsuit blaming McDonald's for making people fat, reinstating claims pertaining to deceptive advertising. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a lower court judge erred when he dismissed parts of the lawsuit brought on behalf of two New York children. U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet dismissed the lawsuit in 2003 because he said it failed to link the children's alleged health problems directly to McDonald's products. But the appeals judges said New York's general business law requires a plaintiff to show only...

    NEW YORK (Talon News) -- Rock music magazine Rolling Stone rejected an ad on Wednesday for a new Bible translation designed to reach "spiritually intrigued 18- to 34-year-olds" because it was deemed too religious. Zondervan, the largest Bible publisher in the United States, was hoping to purchase space in the popular secular magazine to attract their target consumers for the new "Today's New International Version of the Bible," which is due to hit bookstores in February. Doug Lockhart, who serves as the executive vice president of marketing for Zondervan, said he purchased the ad in Rolling Stone last July in...

The star receiver shot a fake moon at the Lambeau Field crowd, pretending to drop his pants, then rubbed himself on the padded goal post. It made previous controversial celebrations by NFL receivers Terrell Owens and Joe Horn look like harmless child's play.

Military policeman Jeremy Sivits, who apologized to Iraqis at the first court martial of soldiers accused of abuses which sparked worldwide outrage, was also expelled from the army. It was not enough for Iraqis protesting outside Abu Ghraib prison, scene of the scandal that came to light when pictures were published of naked and terrified Iraqi inmates being abused and sexually humiliated.

She sued for sexual harassment because the comedy writers would regularly make jokes about women and sex in the process of writing a sitcom about the sexual adventures of six thirty-somethings. A California appeals court has decided that a jury should resolve whether the jokes made by the comedy writers were appropriate for writing a sitcom or whether they created an actionable "hostile working environment for women."

While one in four Americans will be infected with an STD -- and up to half of younger adults will be -- most of those surveyed believed they were not personally at risk. This is precisely why STDs spread so easily and so pervasively in society, said the American Social Health Association, which published the survey.

    Just a curiosity, how many young FReepers are out there? It truly is a rarity to see a young, intelligent conservative. I myself am a convert, I'm a recovering Lib. So speak up!! Male or Female, it matters not. If there are quite a few in the Houston, TX area, I was thinking of maybe a meeting up of sorts. I think it would be wonderful to band togather in supporting our country!! Thanks, PV

    <p>NEW YORK — If the so-called Gen-Xers were slackers in their youth, then they are proving to be anything but in parenthood.</p> <p>In fact, if recent surveys are any indication, the generation born in the late 1960s and '70s — many of whom are only now starting to have families — are embracing a much more conventional, discipline-oriented approach to raising children than their baby-boom predecessors.</p>

    Stop Hate in the Form of 80's Stereotyping! Daily Rot 1/7/02 What's with all the "eighties-bashing" all of a sudden? I can take a good-natured jab like anybody else about most decades, but the EIGHTIES?!! That's my turf. I resent being labelled "That Eighties Guy," like I'm Ramses The Great or something. That was not a decade of which one should make sport. It was one thing when they came up with "That 70's Show." I never said anything, because it's just a stupid T.V. show, you know? So I will disregard the intrusive, abusive, and slanderous deference to that ...

    <p>NEW YORK — As people gear up for couples parties and midnight kisses this New Year's Eve, some men might find dates a little harder to come by.</p> <p>2000 Census statistics and a recent poll by the online dating service Match.com suggest a shortage of single, available women in the mid-20 to mid-30 range, as compared to single, available men. The Match.com study, conducted last month, found 58 percent of men surveyed believe single women are scarcer this year than two years ago.</p>

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - When it comes to predicting whether or not a heterosexual romantic relationship is going to last, the female partner's friends seem to be particularly astute, according to new study findings. The couple's joint friends are often good at predicting the success of the relationship as well, researchers report. ``People often turn to their friends for social support; however, we don't always believe that relationship 'outsiders' can offer truly useful insight regarding our own relationship,'' lead study author Dr. Christopher R. Agnew of Purdue University in Indiana told Reuters Health. ``Yet our study suggests that our ...

    Toogood Reports ^ | December 5, 2001 | Henry Makow Ph.D.
    A feminine woman has the effect of a sunrise on a man's soul. In the words of novelist Alex Waugh, she draws a man "into a magic circle where everything is fresher, cleaner; where there is peace, warmth, comfort. She produces in him the desire to be his best." Nothing on earth is so fine. On this continent, increasingly nothing is so rare. The Official State Gender Ideology, feminism, has decreed that femininity is a "stereotype" invented by men to oppress women. Feminism is no longer about equal opportunity for women. It is a thuggish, devious synthesis of Marxism and ...

    An explosive story in the new edition of Vanity Fair has already reverberated in the office of Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), as staffer Diana Davis resigned Tuesday for playing the lead role in the steamy kiss-and-tell article. Written as a post-Condit survey of the social scene on the Hill, the report treats readers to a minute-by-minute account of the blond staffer's conquests and relentless networking into the wee hours of the morning. The story opens in the Hill bar Politiki, where Davis sports what she calls her "fake 'n' bake" tan. "Amid the sea of pasty faces and dark Banana ...
