    "Where can I find out if something is a "law"? Supposedly, Michelle Obama made a law that all chocolate milk in the school milk cooler has to be in the back so the kids can't reach it. She doesn't want the elementary school kids to have chocolate milk, but if we sell it, then it has to be "hard for them to reach". So, little kids are crawling in to my milk cooler, hands are getting hurt, fingers are getting smooshed, etc etc and I'd like to find out if it's an actual "law" instead of just something she's "suggesting"....

Sources in German intelligence and the Israeli government say the militants in question, Muslim Albanians from Kosovo's Orahovac region, are getting advanced training in Kosovo. The information, if correct, suggests that a certain group of international militant Islamists have developed an intricate global...

Bismarck Americans of my generation (Jahrgang 1931) grew up believing that German soldiers were brave. We had to, hearing the grim stories of our fathers and uncles from World War I and our older brothers from World War II (mine was killed in action in 1944). Alas, no more.
