  • Chance Encounter at Sea Gives Fan Renewed Hope for Beleaguered Army Football

    As Army Football’s most disappointed fan, I vowed last year to ditch tomorrow’s annual faceoff against Navy – until a few months ago, when the squids had me sleep with the enemy and then shot me off an aircraft carrier. Let me explain. I don’t dislike football. But it doesn’t excite me the way, say, driving a tank or nearly crash landing into the Blackwater compound does (both of which I have done). I am obsessed, though, with the Army-Navy game. Maybe it’s because the teams embody sport in starkly military terms; or maybe it’s the cool uniforms. Who knows....
  • New England coastal communities threatened by feds' ban on cod fishing

    Federal regulators slapped a six-month ban on most cod fishing off New England this week and are threatening to cut next years catch by up to 75 percent, in a move some say will destroy the livelihoods of fishermen across the region. ... NOAA announced several measures, including the ban which expands no-fishing zones, on Monday. But fishermen whose livelihoods rely on catching cod, as well as the coastal communities that depend on money coming in from that industry, worry the new regulations will devastate them.
  • Fishing's decline looms; will fish eaters notice?

    In May, New England's fishermen will again see a cut to the number of fish they can catch, this time so deeply that the historic industry's existence is threatened from Rhode Island to Maine. But as hard as the cuts are likely to hit fishing communities, local seafood eaters may not notice at all. In the region's markets, grocery stores and restaurants, imported fish dominate, and the cuts make that less likely to change. The cuts will shrink the catch limit 77 percent for cod in the Gulf of Maine and 61 percent for cod in Georges Bank, off southeastern...

    New England lawmakers are asking the U.S. Commerce Secretary for an emergency assessment of the abundance of cod in the Gulf of Maine. ... The six lawmakers also are asking Bryson to freeze the cod catch limit at its current level until the study is complete. Fishermen are facing devastating cuts in cod catch next year

    Karl Rove appeared on the Scott Hennen Show this afternoon and got asked a question by a listener about the Delaware Senate race and Christine ODonnells claims that he conspired with Mike Castle to undermine her campaign. ODonnell also claimed that Rove was trying to avoid her. Roves response? He said that ODonnell wasnt telling the truth. He said that he didnt endorse Castle, that he actually endorsed ODonnell, and that he hasnt been trying to endorse her. Though, Rove also admits that when asked he said that ODonnell didnt give Republicans their best chance to win the Senate race...

    The author sounds vindictive and mean-spirited who the reader feels has lost his way in life. Everyone knows that boys dont kiss and tell, and here we have this clod barking as if he is a Philadelphia Phillies fan heckling the San Francisco Giants right fielder. As readers we become simultaneously angry about his callous disparagement of women and sorry for whatever is torturing his psyche. You can read an avalanche of reactions to the Christine ODonnell one night stand claims here and here and satirically here. So who is this fellow who wrote it? That is a less interesting...

    Mediaite ^ | 10/27/2010 | SpineCrusher says:
    Christine ODonnell, who, judging by the polls, is not long for this political world, did an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network in which she reflected on God (God is the reason that Im running), being a conservative woman (they wouldnt do the things that theyre doing if I werent a woman), and her time on the cable TV circuit circa the late nineties. Its hard to say at this point whether Bill Mahers relentless mocking of Christine ODonnell has helped or hurt her. On the one hand she has been the subject of much not-so-nice criticism and the butt...

    If months of fighting uphill have worn on Christine ODonnell, it doesnt show: the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate recently waded into a crowd of supporters at Fishermans Wharf in Lewes all smiles, bright and effervescent. The people waiting for her are more than supporters theyre fans, nearly every one clad in the powder-blue campaign T-shirt. They lean in close when they talk, speaking in hushed, reverent tones. One presents a copy of Peter Lillbacks George Washingtons Sacred Fire, a 1,200-page doorstop about Washingtons Christian faith. ODonnell is a political outsider, she said, and her supporters are outsiders, too,...

    In a recent interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Christine O'Donnell listed both God and Gloria Steinem as sources of inspiration and influence when times get tough on the campaign trail. The interview was conducted by CBN's The Brody File on Friday at Wesley College in Dover, Delaware and is posted on CBN's website. O'Donnell cited a double standard she believes is being applied to women, specifically conservative women who choose to run for office. "I don't feel it because I don't watch the news. (Laughs) No. I do feel it. There's certainly a double standard and I don't often...

    She said in an interview with The Associated Press that she filed the amended disclosure after her attorney realized the error. Candidates are required to list account values only in broad ranges, and O'Donnell said hers is worth between $1,000 and $15,000. "It's not a lot of savings, but the reality is that a lot of people are hurting in this economy," she said. O'Donnell, who is running against Democrat Chris Coons, maintains that her personal struggles help her understand the urgency of fixing the economy. She said she gave up most of her freelance public relations work during a...

    On ABC's "This Week," Meghan McCain called Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell a "nutjob." Christine O'Donnell's campaign just emailed me the following response from campaign manager Matthew Moran: Christine overwhelmingly won her primary battle against the establishment candidate, so Ms. McCain's vast experience in politics and running for office probably won't influence many Delawareans of any age to listen to her latest rant. Her parents are truly a class act, and am certain they brought her up to be more respectful of a possible future colleague. As Christine rises in the polls, and repairs the damage done by the...

    NYT columnist Maureen Dowd's support for women and equality in politics ends -- when the women are Republicans! Dowd has filed her nails and filed her Sunday column, newsroom sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT, and the fur is set to fly against "Republican Mean Girls." "Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine -- have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that originally buoyed Barack Obama," writes Dowd. "Whether they're mistreating the help or belittling the president's manhood, making snide comments about a rival's hair or ripping an opponent for spending...
