  • Neb. Swift workers quit over prayer

    Denver Post ^ | 05/15/07 | AP
    Grand Island, Neb. - Nearly 100 Muslim workers have quit their jobs at a Swift & Co. meatpacking plant because their prayer times weren't accommodated. "They kind of issued the company an ultimatum," said Dan Hoppes, president of Local 22 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. "They went in before the shift started (Monday) and said that they'd go unless they could pray when they needed to," Hoppes said today. Sean McHugh, a spokesman for Swift at its Greeley headquarters, said breaks are governed by a labor contract and that all employees are told about them during orientation...

    Saddam deputy loses final appeal Former Iraqi Vice-President Taha Yassin Ramadan has lost his appeal against a death sentence for killing Shia Muslims in the 1980s. Ramadan was sentenced to hang after an appeal by the Iraqi High Tribunal, which previously jailed him for life. He was tried alongside former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein over the killing of 148 Shias in the village of Dujail. Under Iraqi law he must follow Saddam Hussein to the gallows within 30 days of the appeals process being exhausted.

    The First Word: Jeremiah's wish Richard Elliott Friedman, THE JERUSALEM POST Feb. 1, 2007 The Bible plays different roles in the ways that people formulate their views on different issues. On homosexuality or capital punishment, there are passages of law that rule on aspects of it, and there are stories that may involve it. So - even though I still suspect that most people's views of these things are more visceral and cultural - it is possible that the Bible genuinely influences some people's decisions about such matters. On abortion, however, the passages are few and questionable. After all, it...

    WASHINGTON - The Rev. Robert Drinan, a Jesuit who — over the objections of his superiors — was the only Roman Catholic priest elected as a voting member of Congress, died Sunday. Drinan, 86, had suffered from pneumonia and congestive heart failure during the previous 10 days, according to a statement by Georgetown University which said he died at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington. "His death was peaceful, and he was surrounded by his family," said the Rev. John Langan, rector of the Georgetown University Jesuit Community where Drinan lived. An internationally known human-rights advocate, Drinan was elected on an...

    (Cleveland) - The former leader of Ohio’s largest mosque has been deported to the Palestinian Territories. Imam Fawaz Damra was convicted two and a half years ago of lying to hide his ties to groups the government considers terrorist organizations. He arrived in Jordan at 4:00 am Friday morning, and then was taken to the Palestinian Territories. Earlier, Damra had agreed to be deported to the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar. There were several nations that agreed to accept him. The 46-year-old was the spiritual leader of the Islamic Center of Cleveland. He was also convicted of lying on his...

    AFTER 12 years and three terms, Gov. Pataki leaves state government far worse then he found it: Albany is scarred by notorious dysfunction, afflicted with pervasive corruption and marked by a torpidity unprecedented in modern times. The state as a whole is also worse off - with a shrinking population, a collapsing industrial base, confiscatory property taxes and a tragic hemorrhaging of an upstate population once famous for its productivity. The sole bright spot - the explosive growth of the New York City economy and some of its suburbs - came despite Pataki's policies, and thanks to the inexorable Wall...

Under its financing agreement, the network had faced a deadline of this Wednesday to have a deal in place for a buyer, but Klestadt said the network's lender had informally agreed to extend the deadline by about a week....

The suspect refused to show his hands, Judd said. The suspect appeared to have the .45-caliber weapon that belonged to Williams, Judd said. He still did not know the man's name.

It'll be called anti-fascism." If you voted for this guy, you're part of the problem.

Cynthia McKinney would likely lose her primary runoff election against former county commissioner Hank Johnson in Georgia's 4th District. McKinney lost handily. Beyond that, her final hours before eventually conceding defeat made for the most underreported and bizarre story of a political exit I've ever seen in my years of participating in or analyzing political races around the country. I had agreed to join the anchor desk at Atlanta's NBC-TV affiliate to provide analysis for that day's elections. As the night wore on, it became clear...

    (Boston - AP) - Seven members of the Catholic Charities board are resigning in protest of a recent request by the state's Roman Catholic bishops. The church leaders want to exempt Catholic social service agencies from a law requiring them to place some adoptive children in gay households. The board members say they're "deeply troubled" by the course set by the four bishops. A statement issued by the seven says the policy would undermine the church's moral priority of helping vulnerable children find loving homes. It goes on to say that the course the bishops are taking threatens the essence...

    FOR MANY staunch supporters and opponents of abortion rights, the search for a third way on the issue seems like so much phony political positioning. -snip- But there is a new argument on abortion that may establish a more authentic middle ground. It would use government not to outlaw abortion altogether, but to reduce its likelihood. And at least one politician, Thomas R.

Some of the cuts already have come through attrition and some will come through a voluntary separation program, editor Dean Baquet wrote in an e-mail to staff. The balance will come through layoffs by year's end. Employees have until Nov. 25 to apply for the voluntary program, the terms of which were to be detailed to the paper's staff later Wednesday.
