    The Art of manliness ^ | 1933 (reprinted October 2, 2012) | Robert Littell
    Editor’s note: An AoM reader recently wrote me a letter recommending I look up this old essay, which originally appeared in Harper’s Magazine in March 1933. I did so, and was delighted by what I found. In the piece, Robert Littell takes on a classic genre: the listing of those skills every man should know. Naturally the fun of such lists is the passionate discussion that results from men adding their two cents as to what belongs and what doesn’t, and what should have been included instead, and I’m sure Littell’s list will have you both nodding and shaking your...

    After two juvenile boys held up three juvenile girls at gunpoint Sunday afternoon (June 12) in the 7th Ward, one made his getaway on a bicycle as the other took off running, New Orleans police say. A preliminary NOPD report says one of the suspects, a 14-year-old boy, was arrested shortly after the robbery. The holdup happened around 4:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of North Broad Street, police say. The report says two of the victims were age 12 and 13. The third victim's age was not listed, but police said she was also a juvenile. The report says...

    ALTUS, Okla. – A man who is a district chairman of a Boy Scouts troop in Oklahoma was arrested this week after he was allegedly caught with child pornography. Steven Foreman, 52, was arrested in Altus after investigators intercepted child pornography coming from a personal computer at Foreman’s home, officials say. Authorities reportedly found several images of child pornography on Foreman’s computers and hard drives. According to KSWO, Foreman is a retired United States Air Force member and is currently employed in a civilian position at the 97th Security Forces Squadron at Altus Air Force Base. He also holds the...

    Roseville, Ca. - For two years, 7-year-old Vinny Desautels grew out his hair to help kids with cancer. "I want to help people so they don't have to go to the doctors to fight cancer." Thirteen inches of hair was gone with the snip of some scissors. "And then everyone got excited when mom cut the ponytails off. I was happy," Vinny said. But life can sometimes take a cruel turn. "My eye was getting heavy." "It is Stage 4 aggressive cancer," said Jason. A little boy who gave selflessly to help those suffering with cancer is now battling the...

    VERSAILLES, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested and charged a man with murder after authorities say he stabbed a young boy to death during a home invasion in Versailles, near Lexington. I'm hoping some Freepers can help me understand what's going on here. This story makes no sense and none of the media want to dig for answers. Nothing in this story makes any sense at all unless you consider two scenarios: 1. The attacker is a total loon, but that still doesn't address how he ended up in Kentucky when he lives in Indiana. 2. The only other thing...

    A 12-year-old boy is suspended from school for 'staring' at another student. It happened in September of 2014 at St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Glendale. The parents filed suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas court to try and get the suspension erased claiming the school didn’t give their son due process. A Judge denied the claim, which means as of now the suspension of the 12-year-old stands. “The perception is he intimidated her,” said Candice Tolbert, his mother. “My son stared at a girl who was engaged in a staring game,” she said. “She giggled the entire time,” she said...

    His bad reputation is bigger than he is. A 10-year-old Brooklynite accused of mugging a 67-year-old grandma and torching a local business is “a one-kid crime wave . . . a very troubled young individual,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said of the alleged prepubescent pyromaniac said Thursday. The pint-sized perp, who’s yet to hit 5 feet tall, arrived Thursday for a Family Court hearing with his mother — who attacked a photographer, swinging her purse at him, as they left for home. “My son is awesome. He’s a good kid,” the mother snapped before heading off. “You paint him like...

    Bay Area Reporter (LGBT News Site) ^ | January 23, 2015 | Matthew S. Bajko
    California judges will no longer be allowed to participate in nonprofit youth groups, such as the Boy Scouts of America, that discriminate against LGBT people. At the same time the justices lifted a ban on judges belonging to a military organization now that gays and lesbians can serve openly in the U.S. Armed Services. The change comes as transgender individuals are still barred from becoming service members, though the policy is reportedly under review. In the case of the scouting group, although it now allows out youth to belong, it continues to ban LGBT adults from serving as troop leaders.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco by the parents of Andy Lopez, accuses Deputy Erick Gelhaus of acting recklessly when he shot Lopez seven times as the boy walked through a southwest Santa Rosa neighborhood with an airsoft BB gun that resembled an AK-47 assault rifle. The lawsuit also faults the Sheriff's Office, accusing it...

The stance is an apparent reversal from the bureau's notice last week, when its agents told command staff at the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office and Santa Rosa Police Department that the agency would conduct its own investigation of the Oct. 22 shooting death of Andy Lopez, looking for potential violations of federal civil rights laws.

FBI officials notified command staff for Sheriff Steve Freitas and Santa Rosa Police Chief Tom Schwedhelm of the move Friday. The federal inquiry is separate from the investigation led by Santa Rosa police into the deputy-involved shooting. A spokesman in the FBI’s San Francisco office called the agency’s inquiry a “shooting review,” looking into the “incident itself (and) the deputies’ response.”...

    Last week, the executive board of Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay kids into their programs, thus compromising their long standing set of Christian morals and values. When I heard about their vote, it saddened me to see them succumb to the pressures of a debauched society. In my report last week about their compromise, I predicted that a number of church sponsored Boy Scout programs would be ended the same way it happened in Canada when they allowed the gays to go camping with them. Well, it seems the exodus has begun. Southeast Christian Church first...

    OWA CITY, Iowa – When it came time to draw up a budget, one of Iowa's regional Girl Scout councils reviewed its programs and made a proposal that would have been unthinkable a generation ago: selling its last four summer camps. Troop leader Joni Kinsey was stunned. For decades, the camps had been cherished places where thousands of young girls spent summer breaks hiking, huddling around campfires and building friendships. Kinsey, whose daughter learns to train horses at camp, immediately started a petition to fight the idea. Other scouting alums and volunteers have taken up the cause, too, packing public...

    (OnMyHonor.Net is the nationwide coalition of concerned parents, Scout Leaders, Scouting Donors, Eagle Scouts and other members of the Boy Scouts of America who are united in their support of Scouting’s current membership policies and their opposition to the proposed resolution which requires open homosexuality in the Boy Scouts.) On May 9, 2013, pro-resolution BSA officials issued a document entitled “Membership Resolution Points of Clarification” which appears to be a direct response to OnMyHonor.Net’s “Ten Reasons Delegates Should Vote No”. This is a point-by-point response to the Points of Clarification written exclusively for voting BSA delegates.First, the single most important...

    Israeli tourists visiting a shrine in Bangkok were shocked when a child, dressed in an orange Buddhist monk's robe, approached them and began speaking in perfect Hebrew. The 12-year-old Israeli boy has been staying in a monastery in northern Thailand, and has no idea until when he will remain there. When asked whether he wanted to be taken back home, he answered: "I told everyone already, it's fine, I'm used to it." The story was revealed on Tuesday by Israel's Channel 2 TV, which aired the tourists' conversation with the child. According to an inquiry by the Foreign Ministry, the...

    The Boy Scouts of America on Friday moved to partially lift its long-standing ban on gays, with a decision that would allow openly gay youth members but continue to bar gay adults in one of the largest youth serving organizations in America. If the resolution is approved in a nationwide vote in May, "no youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone," Deron Smith, the organization´s spokesman, told Reuters. The report found religious groups linked to the Scouts were concerned with homosexual adult leaders not with youth

    Controversy has surrounded the Boy Scouts of America this year, as same-sex activists have pressured the organization to abandon its long-held values and allow homosexual members. Now, they are trying to remove the Boy Scouts' tax-exempt status. Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter to members of the California Legislature Friday to explain the significant legal and policy problems of a proposed bill designed to punish nonprofit youth organizations like the Boy Scouts of America. The bill would strip organizations like the Boy Scouts of their tax-exempt status if they won’t abandon their long-held values and allow themselves to be strong-armed...
