    A couple of years ago, one of you gave me the trick to both enlarge the text of FR posts and comments, and keep it within the borders of the iPhone screen for easy FReeping on the go. I've just bought my new iPhone 4 and I don't remember how to set up this adjustment.

    "Now is the time to keep the promise of equal pay for an equal day's work," Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said August 28 in his convention acceptance speech. He told the crowd in Denver: "I want my daughters to have exactly the same opportunities as your sons."Obama's campaign website is even more specific. Under the heading "Fighting for Pay Equity," the women's issues page laments that, "Despite decades of progress, women still make only 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. A recent study estimates it will take another 47 years for women to close the wage gap...

    Editor, Times-Dispatch: Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice. On June 30 I celebrate my independence day and on July 4 I celebrate America's. This year is special, because it marks the 40th anniversary of my independence. On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba and a few months later I was in the United States to stay. That I happened to arrive in Richmond on Thanksgiving Day is just part of the story, but I digress. I've thought a lot about the anniversary this year. The election-year rhetoric has made me think a lot about Cuba and...

    Two days into the JonBenet Ramsey/John Karr media deluge, a mid-fortyish male in line next to me at a food shop groaned at the day's newspaper headlines. "Now," muttered this stranger--though he wore a baseball cap with bill turned backward, which suggested a few things about him one could know right off--"now we're not going to hear about anything but this damned story for the next six weeks." I sympathized, forbearing to tell him that it would have plenty of competition, what with the networks set to embark on round-the-clock wallowing in the Katrina anniversary.

    (CBS5) The presence of the supernatural and the influence of voodoo long have been synonymous with New Orleans. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, members of the U.S. military are saying that there's something spooky going on and it's not just images of death and destruction that's haunting them. By all accounts, the Sophie B. Wright Middle School in New Orleans sits empty and evacuated except for military personnel who have taken over the campus as a staging site for missions around the battered city. But the men in uniform have the feeling that they're not alone. It prompted a...

He just reached me within the last 10 mins via emergency cell phone to tell me he was alive. Thousands of bodies have been discovered throughout Mississippi in Gulf Port, Waveland,Hancock County,Bay of St.Louis. They are hanging in trees and they are pulling them out 30 at a time. Entire families found drowned in their homes and washing up on shore. The stories he...

(AP) — FBI and Aruban officials said Wednesday that they had flew clues to the whereabouts of a Mountain Brook High School graduate who disappeared during a senior trip to the island.

Holloway joined about 125 graduating seniors and adults on the five-day trip, which is an annual tradition not sponsored by the school.

    It's quite an epic, watching Blockbuster die. The nation's No. 1 video chain hopes to prolong its life with a hostile bid for the No. 2 video-store chain, Hollywood Entertainment. But make no mistake - it's dying. The whole video- store industry is dying, too. Meanwhile some high-rolling financiers are picking over the corpses. Renegade capitalist Carl Icahn has emerged as the largest investor in both Texas-based Blockbuster and Oregon- based Hollywood. Icahn is trying to put the chains together in a $1 billion deal. He'll most likely try to turn a fast buck with synergies, economies of scale, cost-...

    Intellectual Conservative ^ | 4 November 2004 | Nicholas Stix
    White, Christian Evangelicals are the Rodney Dangerfield of American politics: They don't get no respect. After being responsible for spearheading the re-election of their candidate, instead of receiving congratulations, Christian Evangelicals got to hear NBC stars denigrate their intelligence, turn their support for President Bush into a negative, and even seek to nullify President Bush's electoral victory. At noontime the day after, NBC "election anchor" and Hardball host Chris Mathews, who during the campaign had not sought to hide his hardcore Democrat partisanship, said of Evangelicals, "they're believing, not analytical," a statement that would have applied perfectly to your typical...

The commentary is from Matthew Manweller, a political science professor at Central Washington University. Here's the text of that commentary: "In that this will be my last comlumn before the presidential election, there will be no sarcasm, no attempts at witty repartee. The topic is too serious, and the stakes are too high. This November we will vote in the only election during our lifetime that will truly matter.

    In less than a week we will finally be spared the coma-inducing drone of John Kerry. His interminable lies will cease to dirty the airways, his false posturing will drop from the scene. No more fake hunting vignettes. No more windsurfing. No more stage shots of the elitist forcing down old Chex Mix and the contents of a bottle of Miller Genuine Draft. His followers will no longer rob and trash the campaign headquarters of his opponents. His chance to commit voter fraud - Democratic thugs and henchmen registering the dead and suing to overturn the choice of legal voters...

    Ghostly guestsBy Carolyn Kessel Stewart / News Staff Writer Saturday, October 23, 2004 HUDSON -- A headless man in a fine blue officer's uniform floats above the Fort Meadow Reservoir day and night, but his ghost is seen only by women. "The Blue Man," as he is known, is so crisp that the weave of his coat and the gold on his buttons are clearly visible, said ghost hunter and story teller Nancy McMillan. Another ghost, who some recognize as a former Marlborough mayor, peers up at those on the Fort Meadow Reservoir docks. "It looks like he's peering up...

    Mark Steyn says that the nuanced John Kerry is a threat to peace. So it’s a good thing he’s going to lose the election New Hampshire These days the most devastating profiles of John Kerry are the puff pieces. Take, for example, last weekend’s New York Times magazine, in which Matt Bai attempted to argue that the Nuancy Boy is a kind of strategic genius who was on to this whole terror thing a decade before anybody else. That line of argument gets a little tiring, so midway through Mr Bai included this relaxing interlude: A row of Evian water...
