    As a young U.S. Army soldier during World War II, Rollins Edwards knew better than to refuse an assignment. When officers led him and a dozen others into a wooden gas chamber and locked the door, he didn't complain. None of them did. Then, a mixture of mustard gas and a similar agent called lewisite was piped inside. "It felt like you were on fire," recalls Edwards, now 93 years old. "Guys started screaming and hollering and trying to break out. And then some of the guys fainted. And finally they opened the door and let us out, and the...

    Across Europe, many pro-Palestinian rallies have been taking a disturbing turn. Under the guise of opposing Israel’s actions in Gaza, thousands of protesters have given expression to virulent anti-Jewish sentiments–and often acted on them. In France, mobs have shouted “Death to the Jews,” and eight synagogues have been attacked. One journalist even overheard a man who “spoke loudly about ‘hunting Jews and killing them.’” In the northern suburbs of Paris, the neighborhood of one of France’s largest Jewish communities was ransacked, with cars and businesses destroyed, including a kosher grocery store that was burned down.

    Just for today… I won’t worry about money and paying bills because there was once a man or woman on their way to work in the Towers with money on their minds. I won’t pester or fight with my husband because on the morning of 9-11, a husban and wife had a fight and he left angry and she is left with a lifetime of regret. I won’t worry about what I’m eating or drinking because I’m alive to eat and drink. I won’t ask God for more stuff because I should be thankful for the breathe in my lungs...

    Hi everyone. My mother was recently diagnosed with a very rare cancer that affects about 1,000 people a year. It's called pseudomyxoma peritonei. It has been an journey of misdiagnoses, wrong advice,etc. and now after a laparotomy we know what's causing my mother's belly to get so big. I saw my mother about two or three weeks ago and she dropped a lot of weight. I don't mean to depress anyone on this Easter weekend but a lot of folks are going to church and I'd appreciate the prayers.

    Dear Friend of ARI: As you know, the Objectivist club at NYU is planning to hold an event in support of free speech on March 29. At the event they plan to display the Danish cartoons while engaging in a panel discussion on free speech. This event was planned as a public event -some of you might have RSVP'd for it. Unfortunately, this morning we found out that the University, under the pretense of security, is limiting the event to "members of the NYU community" only. This is in contradiction to their own policy regarding free speech. The only way...

    Last year my car was stolen from my driveway. It was stolen by a little brat fifteen year old and his buddies. His mom was really nasty to me and didn't want to give me three hundred dollars to fix my car. Thanks to a two page letter I wrote expressing my open,honest opinion about the future of this young man's life, I was awarded $1100 by the court. This is almost the whole value of the vehicle. I posted about this last year so I thought I'd share the outcome. Good things to happen in the court sometimes!

    Sacramento—In a bold, yet unexpected move, California has decided to dissolve all ties with the United States of America. It is reported, that on Tuesday, November 15, 2005, the California legislature will vote to secede from the Union. The vote comes in an answer to the agonizing defeat of Governor Schwarzenegger’s propositions at the voting booths. The voters have made it clear that they don’t want any change in California. They have demonstrated to Governor Schwarzenegger that they want to leave things alone, keep the status quo. “I’m glad the propositions went down,” stated Autumn Keely, a registered Democrat. “I’m...
  • Veteran's Day Reminder: The Price of Freedom

    Freedom isn’t cheap. It’s the most expensive asset in America. Without freedom, all other assets would become negligible. If we take a look at a balance sheet, freedom would be listed as a long term asset, the kind of asset that takes years and years to pay off. Who pays it off? The United States Armed Forces. The men and women in the military make that payment on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Over the years, those sacrifices made have been an installment to freedom. Each deployment and death has made life in America all the more perfect....

    HOUSTON—In a desperate move to escape guilt, Representative Tom DeLay turned himself in Thursday at the Harris County sheriff’s office and was fingerprinted, photographed and released on $10,000 bail on conspiracy and money-laundering charges. DeLay was accompanied by his lawyer Dick DeGuerin and arrived shortly after noon at a Harris County Sheriff’s Department facility at 49 San Jacinto. According to sheriff's Lt.

    By DAVID PACE Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff defended his actions before and after Hurricane Katrina, telling lawmakers Wednesday he relied on Federal Emergency Management Agency experts with decades of experience in hurricane response. "I'm not a hurricane expert," Chertoff said several times in responding to criticisms from members of a special House panel set up to investigate the dismal federal response to Katrina, which killed more than 1,200 people, flooded New Orleans and forced the evacuation of hundreds of thousands. Chertoff, a former prosecutor and Justice Department official, took over the Homeland Security...

    Three weeks ago I lost my father. His health had deteriorated for a number of years, but the last few months things had been improving. And then one morning he couldn’t breathe. By the time my mother called 911 he was gone. After getting the phone call, all time seemed to stop. Nothing mattered. I sat there stunned, wondering why it had to happen now. Why didn’t I have a chance to say goodbye? There are pivotal moments in everyone’s life. It had become abundantly clear that this was one of those moments. I could only hope that I was...

    New York's Medicaid program pays more than a million claims a day, feeding a $44.5 billion river of checks to radiologists and ambulance drivers, brain surgeons and orderlies, medical centers and corner pharmacies. Many who get those checks pocket more money than they deserve, and millions of taxpayer dollars are believed to be lost every day to theft and waste.

How is it voluntary if they end up picking a race for you anyway?

    To see her now—hips framed by low-slung pants, navel shot through with a $500 belly ring—it strains the imagination to envision Lisa Marie Sohr, a resplendent Long Island hottie, as an obese woman. She moves with the insouciance of someone who has always been 120 pounds, except when she stands up, when she looks a bit as if she’s been fired from a slingshot. (“It’s like, whoa—I’m used to going for the big lunge.”) Yet Sohr can recall the day her weight became not just an unsupportable physical millstone but a metaphysical one: It was her 33rd birthday.
