    The Atlee Junior League softball team was removed from the World Series championship game on Saturday after posting an inappropriate photo on social media. According to the Richmond-Times Dispatch, Little League officials were made aware of the photo, which shows several members of the team giving the middle finger to the camera, on Saturday morning. It was quickly decided to disqualify the team, which consists of girls ages 12-14, from further competition. The photo in question was taken moments after Atlee defeated Kirkland American in the semifinals on Friday. Little League spokesman Kevin Fountain released the following statement to the...

    To save time and syllables, we’re going journo-green today. Thus “common sense” will be replaced by “it,” as in “getting it.” And that’s the point: “it” doesn’t matter, not anymore. It doesn’t matter that the absurd, the grossly inaccurate and the just plain stupid easily can be eliminated. It is what it is. And that’s it. There will be no deviation from, let alone elimination of, the ridiculous, no matter how self-evident.

    Same-sex marriages will begin within days in New Jersey after the state's highest court ruled unanimously Friday to uphold a lower-court order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay that was sought by Gov. Chris Christie's administration. "The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," the court said in an opinion by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. "The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative."(continued)

    But if past conventions are any indicator, Republicans are likely to outspend Democrats heavily at topless bars and strip clubs, says Angelina Spencer. She heads the Association of Club Executives, an organization for the nation's 4,000 "gentleman's club" owners. The group talked to members in the host cities of past conventions. "When we compared spending," Spencer notes, "the average showed Republicans spending $150 per person at an adult club, versus Democrats, who averaged $50 a person." Asked about the notion of Republicans patronizing strip clubs, convention spokesman James Davis told CNN, "We're focused on having a great convention and nominating...

    So Tiger Woods was catting around? I guess. Will this be reported on until pigs fly? Probably. Should it? No. Tiger Woods has hurt himself and his family with his bad behavior. He has come forth with a statement that leads us to believe that many rumors were true. Tiger has taken the blame and has exonerated his wife from accusations of domestic abuse

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The Obama administration is rewarding North Korea for its bad behavior by sending ex-president Bill Clinton to Pyongyang to win the release of two US journalists, the former US ambassador to the UN said Tuesday. John Bolton, an outspoken hardliner in the previous administration of George W. Bush, told AFP that Clinton's mission to Pyongyang undermines a number of public stands held by his own wife, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "It comes perilously close to negotiating with terrorists," Bolton told AFP when asked about Bill Clinton's trip to secure the release of journalists Laura Ling...

    Trading Places by: Deborah Lambert, April 23, 2008 Trust the Brits to come up with a dandy educational plan to reduce school exposure to bad behavior addicts. According to Children's Secretary Ed Balls, the plan that calls for a "swap" of unruly kids with good ones has been labeled as "wicked," and prompted teachers to call for "snap strikes over disruptive behavior." To keep suspension numbers as low as possible, the teachers union says that unruly students are spread out over a number of schools. In a talk delivered at the union's annual conference, teachers' union member Susan Jones described...

    I think I've figured out why Democrats are so faithful to federal judges -- they're confused the Constitution provides "the Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour" but the Democrats think it's "till death do us part" they think the judicial oath of office are like their marriage vows ...

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands... We have all said the pledge more times then we can remember; but what does it mean to pledge your allegiance to a republic, our republic? By definition you pledge your loyalty, commitment, adherence, faithfulness and duty to the republic. When we pledge our allegiance we are duty bound to faithfully adhere to which our republic stands. Our commitment is proclaimed and defined in our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and the Amendments (Bill of...

    <p>Some students at Murdock Middle-High School in Winchendon have been disciplined for what school officials termed inappropriate behavior during Governor Mitt Romney's visit to campus this week.</p> <p>On Wednesday, Romney went to Winchendon, a north central Massachusetts town about 70 miles from Boston, as a show of support after the state Board of Education last month declared Winchendon schools underperforming. He addressed more than 900 students, school officials, and town leaders in the Murdock School's gymnasium. He also met privately with parents and teachers, offering the state's help in turning around Winchendon schools. While principal Patricia A. Washburn said that the majority of students had behaved appropriately, she said a "small handful" had booed the governor, refused to shake his hand, or carried protest signs. Those students were "not being respectful to our guests in the building," Washburn said, and face consequences. She declined to provide details. "There is a proper protocol and decorum these students are supposed to have," she said. "Almost everyone has it, but unfortunately, there were [a] very few that didn't, and we dealt with those situations. We dealt with them Thursday morning, and we're back to focusing on what's important."</p>

    10/13/2003--The tail still wags the dog around here. The Sox have no control over their stars. That's the way it was for Clemens when he was here. Roger had to go elsewhere to grow up. And we all know it took a while. Everyone in baseball knows what Pedro was doing in the fourth inning. He'd blown a 2-0 lead. The Yankees were kicking him around Fenway. The old magic was gone and no doubt he was frustrated. It can't be fun knowing your team is 9-15 when you start against the Yankees. So what did he do? With first...
