    Palestinians will soon get a chance to glimpse the small bedroom where their longtime leader Yasser Arafat spent his final years. The 5-square meter (54-square-foot) room is the centerpiece of the new Arafat Museum, which opens to the public on Thursday to coincide with the 12th anniversary of Arafat’s death. […] Arafat spent most of the last three years of his life in this bedroom on the ground floor of his Ramallah headquarters, known as the Muqata. Israel confined him to the building on Dec. 8, 2001, accusing him of masterminding a violent uprising at the time. He remained holed...

    This is all fun stuff and will no doubt lead to some very clever jokes on The Daily Show. But there were also some very serious legal questions at stake. Namely, what limits does the U.S. Constitution place on the legislative power of state governments, and what role do federal judges play in enforcing those limits? Related to that, what sort of unenumerated rights (if any) are protected from state infringement by the 14th Amendment?

    The government and the Court should stay out of our bedrooms, our churches and especially our bakeries Equal protection under the law does not equate to equal results in American society. Liberal progressives have co-opted and perverted the intentions of the Founding Fathers in order to promote their divisive anti-American agenda: pitting one group against another; in the case of the marriage issue, the gay community against conservative Christians. The concept of marriage between one woman and one man has informed societies throughout history for thousands of years. Despite its religious connotations and inherently stabilizing influence on society, its primary...

    Google Chrome Listening In To Your Room Shows The Importance Of Privacy Defense In Depth Yesterday, news broke that Google has been stealth downloading audio listeners onto every computer that runs Chrome, and transmits audio data back to Google. Effectively, this means that Google had taken itself the right to listen to every conversation in every room that runs Chrome somewhere, without any kind of consent from the people eavesdropped on. In official statements, Google shrugged off the practice with what amounts to “we can do that”.It looked like just another bug report. "When I start Chromium, it downloads something."...

    These pictures of a unique bedroom set came to me via the Internet.  I do not know the location of the set or the source of the revolvers. Counting the revolvers that make up the bed frame, the vanity, the lamps, table, chair, chandelier, and window decoration, and assuming that there is symmetry on the sides of the objects that are not visible, I believe there are at least 100 revolvers used in the construction of the set. The revolvers are an eclectic mix of Smith & Wesson (or clones) and Colt (or clones) revolvers.  They appear to mostly...

    What would you do if you found a burly county agent in your bedroom, demanding that you cut your grass? Erica Masters of Martinez in Columbia County,near Augusta,captured such an encounter recently on her home surveillance camera when code compliance officer Jimmy Vowell entered her bedroom to demand she come out to sign a summons. "He let himself in and actually came through the house and into my bedroom and yelled at me to wake me up to let me know that I needed to come back outside and sign the violation notice," Masters told WJBF-TV News Channel 6 station...
  • Nancy Pelosi Wants Bedroom on Jet

    Critics charge that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is abusing the perks of power by asking for a jumbo military jet with sleeping accommodations for her flights across the country. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Pentagon agreed to provide the speaker, who is second in the line of presidential succession, with a military plane for added security during trips back home. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, an Illinois Republican, flew in a small commuter-sized Air Force jet. Pelosi wants a larger aircraft that can fly to her San Francisco district without stopping to refuel. Some sources are claiming that Pelosi...

    LAFAYETTE, La. - Two little girls, who apparently couldn't sleep, got out of the bed they shared less than a half-hour before a tractor-trailer plowed through their bedroom. Cori Morgan, 7, and her sister, Shadia, 3, had left their bedroom for the living room just before the 4:30 a.m. crash, said Cerrisa Moore, whose mother owns the house.

    "I believe severe punishment is required in this case," the judge said at Allen and Pat's sentencing in November 1997. "I think they have to be separated. It's the only way to prevent them from having intercourse in the future." Allen and Pat were lovers, but a Wisconsin statute enacted in 1849 made their sexual relationship a felony. The law was sometimes used to nail predators who had molested children, but using it to prosecute consenting adults -- Allen was 45; Pat, 30 -- was virtually unheard of. That didn't deter Milwaukee County Judge David Hansher, however. Nor did the...

    In the beginning, I think I was like most people who wanted to know if Michael Jackson was guilty or innocent. Now I just want the whole sick thing to end. The question is what is more disgusting, the details of his alleged sex acts with minors or the media coverage of every piece of evidence in the trial? Wednesday nights headline on Drudge is "SNEDDON TO PRESENT 'VASELINE EVIDENCE' IN JACKO TRIAL... **GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION**..." Prosecutor Tom Sneddon is planning on calling a witness to the stand to testify that Michael Jackson requested one of his guards to get a...

    Poll: Voters Blame Corruption, Not Bedroom, For Gov's Resignation McGreevey Will Resign In November POSTED: 11:06 pm EDT August 16, 2004 UPDATED: 11:29 pm EDT August 16, 2004 TRENTON, N.J. -- The public weighs in on the controversy surrounding Gov. James E. McGreevey. The consensus is that the governor's resignation has little to do with his sexual preference and more to do with corruption in his administration. Nearly half of the people polled by Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind said corruption was the chief factor. Only eight percent said it was because he is gay. Several of McGreevey's associates have been...
