    DENVER -- The American Civil Liberties Union plans to lobby for changes to Colorado laws that require nude offenders to register as sex offenders, claiming the laws are unusually harsh. --- Boulder is no stranger to naked mayhem. Last year, more than 60 nude cyclists rode around the city protesting oil-burning cars; a teenager streaked at the Boulder-Fairview football game; and about a 100 people participated in the annual Naked Pumpkin Run. In each case, the offender could be charged with indecent exposure, which carries a mandatory registration as a sex offender.

    Beverly Anderson is mad as hell. She just started to get tickets for parking in her own driveway. That's right. The District of Columbia is ticketing people who park their cars in their own driveways. ---- So what does the law say? "Any area between the property line and the building restriction line shall be considered as private property set aside and treated as public space under the care and maintenance of the property owner." ----------- Basically what that means is most property owners in the District don't own the land between their front door and the sidewalk, but they...

    If the government has its way, Eminem’s new single could land him in jail, Jon Stewart’s book, America, could have been banned, and advertising Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 on television or radio would have been a felony. That’s what the government argued two weeks ago in my organization’s Supreme Court case against the Federal Election Commission, Citizens United v. FEC. In oral arguments before the nine justices of the Supreme Court, the Deputy Solicitor General of the United States asserted that the government had the constitutional authority to criminalize the production of any communication with corporate assistance (such as from...

    OSLO/BONN (Reuters) – Global warming is likely to overshoot a 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 F) rise seen by the European Union and many developing nations as a trigger for "dangerous" change, a Reuters poll of scientists showed on Tuesday. Nine of 11 experts, who were among authors of the final summary by the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2007 (IPCC), also said the evidence that mankind was to blame for climate change had grown stronger in the past two years.

    I'd like to ask. I promise I don't mean this in an unkind way. I would really like to know. Suppose the Freepers who believe that humans were created in their current form by God (whether 6,000 years ago or much longer).... Suppose you became convinced that instead man had developed from lower organisms over billions of years. Would that have to change any other core beliefs - that God directed man, The God came to Abraham and chose his children; that God sent us His son, that we are to follow the teachings of Jesus - particularly that we...

    WASHINGTON – Chief Justice John Roberts has granted the Obama administration's request to the Supreme Court to block the release of certain sex offenders who have completed their federal prison terms. The federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., had earlier invalidated a law allowing the indefinite commitment of "sexually dangerous" prison inmates. Roberts, in an order Friday, says as many as 77 inmates can continue to be held at a prison in North Carolina at least until the high court decides whether to hear the administration's appeal of a ruling by the federal appeals court. ... "That would pose a...

    Two women serve in Israel's new Cabinet - but some Israelis would rather not see them. Newspapers aimed at ultra-Orthodox Jewish readers tampered with the inaugural photograph of the Cabinet, erasing female ministers Limor Livnat and Sofa Landver. Ultra-Orthodox newspapers consider it immodest to print images of women.

    AUSTIN – In a decision watched by science educators across the nation, the State Board of Education on Thursday narrowly turned aside a last-ditch effort by social conservatives to require that "weaknesses" in the theory of evolution be taught in science classes in Texas. Board members deadlocked 7-7 on a motion to restore a longtime curriculum rule that "strengths and weaknesses" of all scientific theories – notably Charles Darwin's theory of evolution – be covered in science classes and textbooks for those subjects ... Voting for the requirement were the seven Republican board members aligned with social conservative groups. Against...

    “Bend down,” Lisa tells me as we cruise past a pickup truck at a deserted Garden Grove park about 10 p.m. Her twin sister Teresa crouches in the trunk of our rented Ford Fusion and I’m in the back seat with a notebook. Tonight I’m riding with bounty hunters — you know, like Duane “Dog” Chapman. They carry no guns. But they’re willing to pepper-spray or taze unwilling fugitives, tackle men three times their size and, some nights, slap them in girly PINK handcuffs.

    CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has for years funneled state oil income into sweeping social programs, vowed Sunday to cut nonessential state spending and order a review of top officials' salaries as oil income plunges. The socialist leader said he plans to sign a decree as soon as Monday targeting "unnecessary spending" on parties, mobile phones, new cars, bonuses and salaries — some of which he admitted have become "astronomical." The move will yield a "modest but very important" reduction in spending, and should cut budget outlays by more than 5 percent this year, Chavez told his...

One person was injured and three were arrested after clashes between the protesters and about 20 youths who the police source said were associated with the far-right and who were carrying placards saying "Leave my Pope alone". Benedict said in Africa on Tuesday that the use of condoms was complicating the...
