    Arkansas Times ^ | 16 MAR 2012 | Max Brantley
    The Little Rock Airport Commission has scheduled a discussion at its meeting Tuesday to rename the airport the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. The idea has kicked around for years, with varying amounts of cheering and jeering. Hillary Clinton served for a time as legal counsel to the airport. I'm guessing the votes are in hand now to honor Arkansas's native son president and his wife, the secretary of state. It's better than a guess. Our FOI request early today produced 1) renderings of various proposed sign treatments including the one above; 2) the resolution the commission has up...

    Here is a CNN video report on a broom in a Prattville, Alabama Consignment shop that strangely "stands on its own." It seems a woman was moving a cabinet, and when she turned around the broom was standing on its own. The broom can be moved to various spots on the floor and will still stand on its own. . . . . .

  • Dying in Vein - Is subjecting an inmate to a failed execution cruel and unusual punishment?

    Can a vein save a convicted killer? It the case of Romell Broom—it might. Broom was sentenced to death for raping and murdering 14-year-old Tryna Middleton on Sept. 21, 1984. Broom isn't supposed to be alive to witness the 25th anniversary of Middleton's death—but he is. Last Tuesday, the execution team at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility spent several hours trying unsuccessfully to find a viable vein for a lethal injection. Now, Ohio is faced with the difficult task of determining whether it can try to execute Broom a second time, after it botched the first attempt.

    Pajamas Media ^ | Sept. 18 | Jazz Shaw
    It must have been a grim scene on Tuesday night inside of Ohio’s state prison at Lucasville. Romell Broom lay strapped to a gurney with a team of medical technicians and correction officials hovering about him. But rather than receiving emergency medical treatment, Romell was waiting to die. Back in 1984, Broom had been convicted of abducting a fourteen-year-old child as she walked home from a football game in Cleveland, raping her and killing her. No credible opposition to the evidence presented against him was forthcoming, and the court determined that Romell should no longer be sharing above ground real...

    Gordon Taylor got a surprising answer when he asked for a dentist's daughter's hand in marriage – 'Yes, as long as you get your teeth fixed.' The 32-year-old was told he must have a series of fillings and cosmetic surgery before he could walk down the aisle with Sarah Lewis, 26. Her father, Dr Philip Lewis, even made him wear a 'snap-on smile' cosmetic denture for the wedding in Cowes, the Isle of Wight. 'I didn't mean to neglect my teeth, I guess it was just the lifestyle I was leading,' said Mr Taylor. 'When I met Sarah, I guess...

From 9 a.m. until noon Saturday at Westover Crossing, members of the Dougherty County Taxpayers Association will be handing out free brooms, the symbol the organization has chosen for its Sweep Albany Clean campaign that is aimed at electing three Albany city commissioners this fall.

    LAKE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Lake County man was attacked by an alligator inside his house Sunday night. The gator crawled through an open door and into the Florida room of the house on Lake Eustis Drive. The man's wife and her friend used a broom handle to try and open the gator's mouth. The house sits right along a canal and it wasn't much distance at all for the little alligator to climb out of the canal, under the gate and right through the back door. "I saw him right here. Right here! That's when I turned around and...

Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday urged graduates of a small, historically black college to remain optimistic about their ability to fight injustice and change society for the better. "That's what elections are for," she said. "Don't let anyone wear you down to the point where you believe it is not worth trying to change your society any longer." A crowd of about 4,000 listened to the Democratic presidential candidate deliver the commencement address for about 225 graduates of Wilberforce University, a school of about 1,050 students about 15 miles...

    NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla -- An 82-year-old Lee County man said he tried to get an alligator out of his garage with a broom. John Turney says he also used the blue straw broom to kept the 4-foot reptile from biting him. The gator later went under Turney's car that was parked in the driveway and Turney sprayed it with a garden hose. The alligator finally didn't leave until three other people prodded it, forcing the reptile to go back to a lake. It had apparently spent the night in Turney's garage in North Fort Myers. Just a few days...

    c By DOUGLAS JEHL ASHINGTON, Dec. 28 - The head of the Central Intelligence Agency's analytical branch is being forced to step down, former intelligence officials say, opening a major new chapter in a shakeup under Porter J. Goss, the agency's chief. The official, Jami Miscik, the agency's deputy director for intelligence, told her subordinates on Tuesday afternoon of her plan to step down on Feb. 4. A former intelligence official said that Ms. Miscik was told before Christmas that Mr. Goss wanted to make a change and that "the decision to depart was not hers." Ms. Miscik has headed...

    The American Thinker ^ | Nov. 21, 2004 | Douglas Hanson
    The CIA and its coterie of leak-recipient journalists have seriously damaged the public’s understanding of the terror dangers we face. Now that the public’s attention finally has turned to the threat of Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities, it is vital that everyone understand how a clever misdirection of focus has seriously understated the ability of the mullahs to produce atomic weapons. Since Porter Goss embarked on the much-needed shake-up of the CIA, we’ve been treated to agency leaks to the legacy media from the proverbial “unnamed sources” in an attempt to persuade the American people that Goss will single handedly render...

    "Living History" has far outpaced U.S. Sen. John McCain's memoir "Faith of My Fathers" (1999) and is closing in quickly on "My American Journey" by Gen. Colin Powell, which has 1.6 million hardback copies in print after eight years. Like the secretary of state's book, Clinton's has fueled speculation of a presidential run, either in 2004 or 2008. Former President Bill Clinton's wife insists that's "not in the cards," but she does see something positively political in the crowds of up to 2,000 people who have given her rock-star receptions at book-signings across the country. "I think it's a reflection...
