The exception to this would be the friends and co-workers of Senior Airman Brandon M. Smith, who was forced to endure two weeks with eight of the most beautiful women to wear Kevlar. Smith, a 28-year-old from Harrah, Okla., escorted Washington Redskins cheerleaders and their crew to forward operating bases and airfields in Afghanistan from Feb. 20 to March 3.

    High school cheerleaders must now cheer for girls' teams as often as for boys' teams thanks to federal education officials' interpretations of Title IX, the civil rights law that mandates equal playing fields for both sexes. According to The New York Times, almost no one directly involved wants this -- not the cheerleaders, not the fans, not the boys' teams, and not even the girls' teams. But it doesn't matter: The law coerces cheerleaders to cheer at girls' games. Of all the myths that surround Left-Right differences, one of the greatest is that the Left values liberty more than the...

    For all you loony couch conservatives, the General Election is not the time to sit home and cry over not having a choice. If you sit home and the Rats gain the majority in either House, blame yourself. I know I will. A Republican Rino is still better than a Rat. It gives the Republicans majority status. With that status, we control committees and keep the Rats from starting multitudes of witch-hunting investigations and impeachment procedures. Nothing may get done with or without the RINOs, but its better than having the Rats in control. If you don't like the RINOs...

A man who lives in the house, Allen S. Davis, was arrested Wednesday in the shooting of 17-year-old Rachel Barezinsky the night before. He told reporters Wednesday from jail that he was trying to drive off trespassers and didn't intend to hurt the girls.

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian conservatives have called on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to reverse his decision to let women into sports stadiums, saying it was against Islamic values, newspapers reported on Thursday. Ahmadinejad promised a return to the values of the 1979 Islamic revolution when he was elected last year, prompting many in the establishment to expect rigorous enforcement of Islamic dress and other social codes. But he has been more moderate on social issues than many expected, including saying dress codes should not be imposed by force and, this week, that women should be allowed into sports stadiums for the...

    TURIN, Italy - The Dutch oom-pah band had just finished Queen's ubiquitous rock anthem "We Will Rock You" and the crowd was on its feet Sunday night, stamping and clapping. Then the Olympic cheerleaders ran onto the skating oval. Dead silence. Followed by boos. The official cheerleaders of the Winter Games just can't seem to help it. They're not exceptionally good. Ranging in age from 15 to 26, these Italians were hired to entertain audiences at each Olympic venue. They practiced for four-and-a-half months. It just doesn't look like it.

Responding to an open records request, Hillsborough County prosecutors have provided TSG with statements of three female witnesses who told cops what they saw transpire between Angela Keathley, 26, and Victoria Renee Thomas, 21, in the Banana Joe's loo. The statements, previously withheld by Tampa cops, tell of moaning, "going down," and eyes rolling back into one woman's head as Keathley and Thomas...

I looked the other way when he went into Iraq, even though I thought we weren't done in Afghanistan.

I trusted him on free trade. I believed strongly that tax cuts would send our economy into the stratosphere. I hoped...

To celebrate, she and a friend got pedicures and tooled around town in a convertible blasting their favorite tunes. One week after joining the team, Burns was at practice, preparing to perform a stunt called a "double down." Held aloft by four cheerleaders gripping one of her feet, she was thrust into the air.

The legislation prohibits "overtly sexually suggestive" cheerleading routines at school events and gives the state education chief the authority to ask school districts to review performances. It does not define sexually suggestive. The House approved the legislation May 3 and sent it to the Senate Education Committee, where it is expected to die.

The state's cheerleaders, it seems, have become indistinguishable from exotic dancersor so says a bill submitted by Al Edwards, a representative from Houston. Edwards' legislation would divert money from high schools that allow cheerleaders to perform overly suggestive lunges and inside-hitch pyramids. "It's just too sexually oriented, you know, the way they're shaking their behinds and going on, breaking it down," Edwards explained.

    AUSTIN, Texas - The Friday night lights in Texas could soon be without bumpin' and grindin' cheerleaders. Legislation filed by Rep. Al Edwards would put an end to "sexually suggestive" performances at athletic events and other extracurricular competitions. "It's just too sexually oriented, you know, the way they're shaking their behinds and going on, breaking it down," said Edwards, a 26-year veteran of the Texas House. "And then we say to them, 'don't get involved in sex unless it's marriage or love, it's dangerous out there' and yet the teachers and directors are helping them go through those kind of...

    Nowthat the convetions are over, now that both candidates are out in "battleground" states, it is critical that we do not get over-confident in the commanding lead from our commander in cheif. I, like most of you are as bumped as I have ever been, but I am forcing myself to think of Bush as 10 POINTS DOWN! I am calling on all of you to take this stand and to work as hard as we possibly can to make sure that we close the deal on election day. On the day after the election, when we have "come back"...

    The University of Florida's cheerleading coach was fired Thursday for allowing some squad members to wear T-shirts counting down the "10 Reasons to Cheer Naked" at cheerleading camp this week. That leaves the squad without a coach with only three weeks to go until the first football game. Practices have been temporarily suspended. Gene Moore, who has headed the program for five years, was relieved of his duties after the University Athletic Association received complaints about the sexual nature of the list on the back of the T-shirts. For example, No. 9, perhaps one of the least explicit of the...

    Some Hempfield Area Senior High School cheerleaders and their parents don't want a misunderstanding over nose rings to cost four coaches their jobs. Approximately half of the 40-member junior varsity and varsity cheerleading squads stepped off the sidelines and onto center court in front of the school board Monday night to rally in support of the coaches, whose positions are up for renewal. The girls said new coaches are hired every year, forcing them into an annual rebuilding mode that has hampered efforts to snag a national title in cheerleading competition. "A new coach doesn't know us," junior Angela Santia...

Campbell had disciplined Leach's daughter for skipping practices. Leach, who pleaded guilty in Bentonville District Court on Tuesday, must attend anger management classes and perform some public service.

  • Compromise Lifts Ban On Cheerleader Uniforms In Class (follow-up)

    The Berwick Area School District board decided to allow cheerleaders to wear their uniforms to class on football game days even though some have skirts too short to meet the school dress-code. The dress code requires that girls wear skirts with hems at or below their fingertips when they hold their arms at their sides. The cheerleaders' uniforms did not meet the code and were banned from the school's hallways. Under the school board's decision Monday, cheerleaders will be able to wear their current uniforms until the district orders new skirts for any whose uniforms don't meet the dress code...

    Sept. 29 issue At first, the cheerleaders getting ready for practice in a Los Angeles park seem like average teens as they sip Coke and pepper their sentences with like. But then 17-year-old Larry Wood peels off his sweat pants to reveal a short black and red pleated skirt. A STARTLED ONLOOKER yells out, Faggot! Wood, who has a girlfriend, shrugs and tries an arabesque. I just dont pay attention to it, he says. It shows how much they know. It doesnt matter if youre gay or bi. We should all be treated equally. Moments later, Wood and the...
