    Associated Press reporter Matt Lee questioned the State Department on Friday about why the U.S. seems to be giving “over the top” condolences to Iran for the death of its president’s mother, and asked specifically whether it has anything to do with gaining leverage with ongoing nuclear talks. “I’m just wondering, aren’t you guys laying it on a bit thick here?” Lee asked. “Is there something that you’re expecting in terms of Iranian concessions in the negotiations with this display?” State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said that isn’t correct, and that the condolences were justified because a member of the...

    First of all, my father won't be here to give it to her this year. He passed away a few weeks ago. My father had cancer. He wasn't able to walk the last few months of his life so he was pretty much forced to stay in bed. He had picked out some jewelry he wanted to give my mother for Christmas and asked my sister to get it for him. Way too much was going on for all of us because of my father's condition but he was persistent and continued to ask her to go get the gift....

    Condolences to David Codrea and his family on the passing of his father this morning. David's father had been ill for some time. Nonetheless, nothing really prepares one for the loss of a parent. Also keep Mike Vanderboegh in your prayers as well. He went in the hospital on Monday for what was scheduled to be an out-patient procedure to place a stent in his esophagus. The out-patient procedure turned into an overnight stay and I'm still not sure if he has returned home yet. It is a cruel twist of fate that the two citizen journalists who broke the...

He is also acknowledged for bringing back to the United States a sense of unity following the 1970s, when there was a profound economic and moral crisis in that nation. Among other things, Reagan approached the former Soviet Union firmly...
