    NEW YORK - Celebrating your birthday on the day of your birth is common. Celebrating it by getting your wealthy friends to donate to your charitable foundation is presidential. Former President Bill Clinton was celebrating his 60th birthday this weekend, with deep-pocketed donors forking over sizable checks to the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation for the chance to dine, play golf and attend a Rolling Stones concert with him. Clinton, who turned 60 in August, has already observed the occasion at parties on Martha's Vineyard and in Toronto. This weekend's bash — a fundraiser — is being co-hosted by Chelsea Clinton...

    August 6th marked the 60th anniversary of America’s use of an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. While some still argue that President Truman’s decision to use the A-bomb was “controversial,” they are afflicted with the scourge of our time, the loss of a sense of moral proportion and certainty. Unfortunately, those with relativistic morals will lead us to see the day when nuclear weapons are used again – this time to end once and for all the barbaric savagery of Islamism. Green Left Weekly (GLW) calls the U.S. putting a swift end to WWII – using atomic...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Dozens of international leaders turned out Sunday to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the United Nations in San Francisco, but warned that the organization must institute significant reforms to remain an effective global peacekeeper. The Bush administration signaled its discontent with the world body by sending a single representative to the commemoration. Delegate Sichan Siv, who represents the U.S. on the U.N. Economic and Social Council, did not speak at the anniversary celebration. While officials gave emotional addresses about human rights and the organization's successes in forging global peace, speakers emphasized that the U.N. must restructure...

    Just wondered if any other Freepers besides myself were going to France in six weeks to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Normandy invasion. This has been in the works for me for over a year, and as a general goal for the last twenty years. Ever since Ronald Reagan spoke at the American cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach in 1984, really. Part of the motivation is that this will undoubtedly be the last such gathering of American veterans who actually participated in the assault. As such, it will be the last occasion to honor this extraordinary group of Americans and...

    Well, I just got my packet of info concerning the 60th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France by Stephen Ambrose Tours, Inc. I was suprised that the tour is a CRUISE! Not only that, I think that the $8,000+ is pretty steep, even for such noble guests and luxuries that you will be treated to no doubt. However, I was wondering if it were possible to get together a group of history buffs/patriots/veterans and maybe go over and make things more fun and less expensive for us. I have never been to Normandy, but I heard it was alot...
