    A police department in a Texas Bible Belt community has placed large “In God We Trust” decals on its patrol vehicles in response to recent violence against law enforcement officers, drawing criticism from a watchdog group that says the decals amount to an illegal government endorsement of religion. The decision by police this month to unveil the phrase in Childress, an agricultural community of some 6,100 people at the southern edge of the Texas Panhandle, follows a similar move by dozens of other police agencies elsewhere in the country.

    Saving Black BabiesAbortion has cost 13 million African American lives.By Sheryl Blunt in Washington | posted 01/10/2003 Growing up in inner city Detroit, Janine Simpson and her girlfriends didn't think twice about having abortions. In her all-black neighborhood, teen abortions were the norm, she says, and the local abortion clinic was a fixture. "My friends and I, we all had abortions," Simpson says. "We didn't even think about it. To us it was just getting rid of a blob of tissue. We'd say, 'Oh, you pregnant? Okay, let's go take care of it.' " But after Simpson's own abortion her...

    Happy Independence Day, Brad Childress. I was thrilled to read about the Minnesota coach's surprise reunion with his Marine son, Lance Cpl. Andrew Childress, at an Afghan military base on Friday. This is the second year that NFL coaches have visited the troops in Afghanistan (Andy Reid, Childress, John Fox and Marvin Lewis also spent two days in Germany visiting the wounded), and the Marines did a beautiful thing for Childress when he was greeting a line of troops just off the plane in Afghanistan. They put Andrew Childress in the line, and dad simply discovered him while shaking hands...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Minnesota coach Brad Childress knows one way to get a definitive answer from Brett Favre(notes). Wait. “I’m not going to put him in any box,” Childress said Friday at the NFL’s annual scouting combine. “Four weeks and change, he’s still healing up from that game (the NFC championship). He’s kind of earned that latitude.” Whether the three-time MVP needs a month or an entire offseason .. Childress isn’t pressing the issue. He spoke with Favre twice this week, but football was not the primary topic. Instead, the three-time league MVP was busy putting down fresh limestone on a road...

    During the Minnesota Vikings' 10-1 start, coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre celebrated plenty of highs. But their relationship hit a low Sunday night during and after a 26-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers. NBC cameras captured Childress and Favre having an animated discussion on the sideline in the third quarter, which the quarterback later said revolved around the coach's inclination to plug in backup Tarvaris Jackson.

This gives us a national stage to make our case to the...
