    Two white doves released by children standing alongside Pope Francis as a peace gesture today were attacked by other birds. As tens of thousands of people watched in St. Peter’s Square, a seagull and a large black crow swept down on the doves right after they were set free from an open window of the Apostolic Palace. One dove lost some feathers as it broke free from the gull. But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. It was not clear what happened to the doves as they flew off. …

    Armstrong was open about his doping with Crow, never suspecting that she would tell anybody about it. "Rather than try to hide the transfusion from her, Armstrong was completely open about it," the authors write, according to the Daily News. "He trusted that Crow would have no desire to tell the press or anyone else about the team's doping program. He explained that it was simply part of the sport - that all cyclists were doing the same thing."

    Crows are presumed to be reasonably intelligent, and they often exhibit playful behavior. But do they like to go sledding on the snow? The accompanying video shows a crow in Russia sliding down a snowy roof while standing atop a jar lid--not once but twice--in an episode that has stormed the web, garnering 2 million views during the past week.

    Editor's note: Martin Luther King III is president and chief executive officer of The King Center in Atlanta. Richard Trumka is president of the AFL-CIO. (CNN) -- It is one of the painful ironies of our time that in the same season Martin Luther King Jr.'s memory is finally honored with a memorial in our nation's capital, the state where he began to lead the civil rights movement is once more the center of an ugly conflict over racial injustice. The passage of Alabama's anti-immigrant legislation, HB 56, invokes inhumanity reminiscent of the Jim Crow South. And the police state...

    The Winston Review ^ | September 1, 2011 | -TWR-
    Seasonal anti-interventionist, Sheryl Crow, has lost her antiwar T-shirts. Or she is making hypocrisy – not war. Curiously, the singer-songwriter supported Bill Clinton when he “dispatched the military overseas forty-four times during his eight years” – a modern record, according to historian Thomas Woods. Crow also traveled with Hillary and the comedian Sinbad to the Balkans. Bill Clinton’s anti-Serb campaigns were legendary. Yet, in 2003, Crow mysteriously advocated pacifism, pleading with Bush 43 to appease Saddam Hussein, because interventionism was evil. To make her point, she strutted around in her “War Is Not The Answer” T-shirt, at The American Music...

    EVERETT, Wash.- Police in Washington state said a trio of crows are playing a real-life game of "Angry Birds" by dive-bombing officers outside a police station. The Everett Police Department said the crows, which live in a tree next to the north precinct office, have been dive-bombing officers for the past few days, The (Everett) Daily Herald reported Monday. Everett police Lt. Bob Johns said he recently "got zinged" by the birds. "They're like velociraptors," he said. Police said one officer attempted to ward off the crows using the siren in his patrol car and the birds responded by covering...

    Pop-star and courageous anti-toilet-paper crusader Sheryl Crow apparently has a new political concern: Tea Partiers. The country crooner told CBS journalist Katie Couric that Tea Party members are uneducated, angry and potentially dangerous in an interview with Glamour magazine this June. After Crow complained in the interview that Americans have become too blasé about politics, and that nobody has taken to the streets to cause "a riot or a revolution," Couric correctly pointed to the Tea Party as an example of modern day activism.

    Illogically high expectations about pinpoint accuracy and target discrimination in a fire-fight are the fantasy of armchair-academics and videogame players. Men on the ground know that war is sloppy and rough. Combat is not a noun or a place that you are “in,” but rather a verb, a thing that you “do” to other people. Principally, combat is imposing your will on the enemy by violence of action and the ugly truth is that the process kills all kinds of people: good ones, bad ones, and yes, even our own. When our expectations of success and precision are unrealistic it...

But people — even people who love crows — usually can't tell them apart. So what we have for you are two experiments that tell this story. First, how do crows tell us apart? Watch this video:

Two groups of people were barbecuing along the east beach near Spring Valley Parkway and Country Club Drive on Saturday night when a member of the first group kicked a crow that was hopping around their area, said Stella Hodson, spokeswoman for the Victor Valley station. “Someone from the second group took exception to the abuse of the bird and confronted the...

    In Lithuania, eating crow isn't an exercise in public humiliation, as the English idiom suggests. Here, crow is literally eaten, and says one connoisseur, "it increases sexual potency." Despite their intelligence and function as scavengers, crows are rarely popular birds. The large black birds with a noisy squawk have traditionally held the role of evil-doer or thief in fable and fairy-tales. In Lithuania, crow has been part of a traditional diet throughout the centuriesmostly eaten during times of hardship. The meal of crow remained widespread in Lithuania into the 20th Century but almost died out during Soviet occupation. Now it...

    "In the past, people thought birds were stupid," laments the aptly named scientist Christopher Bird. But in fact, some of our feathered friends are far cleverer than we might think. And one group in particular - the corvids - has astonished scientists with extraordinary feats of memory, an ability to employ complex social reasoning and, perhaps most strikingly, a remarkable aptitude for crafting and using tools. Some corvids, such as rooks, live in large groups Mr Bird, who is based at the department of zoology at Cambridge University, says: "I would rate corvids as being as intelligent as primates in...

    Backing up data is a pain in the neck. The only way to make people do it is to automate the process. Mozy does that. Many of us have suffered a data-destroying computer crash. But some stories are better than others. Josh Diulio, a marketing exec from Monroe, Mich., left his HP laptop sitting on a ledge on the balcony of his apartment building while he ran inside to get a drink. When he came back a crow was perched on the open laptop. The crow, startled by Diulio, leaped up and away, tipping the laptop just enough that it...

They did that in our name, laying upon our shoulders the sins of long-dead Americans and having us cringe at the feet of today’s casino-rich Native Americans, and our black brothers and sisters whose votes they lust after.

The Notaro-Livingstones of Huntsworth, England, said they adopted Jack the crow about 10 months ago when they discovered him outside of his nest and unable to lift his own head, The Telegraph reported Wednesday. The family said that as Jack recovered, he began mimicking the family's other pets -- a pack of five dogs. They said Jack steals dog treats from the other pets and will often jump onto the...

Sheryl Crow, the 'one square wonder' has single handedly wiped the way clear the future of our communication. For instance; when things are getting shakey at work you should state that if everyone doesn't work together the "Crow's really gonna hit the fan." When someone startles you, tell them you nearly "Crowed your pants." Suppose you are playing poker. Your friend fails to disguise his glee at the hand you dealt to him.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican, a claim challenged by civil-rights researchers. The National Black Republican Association ads have been heard in Ohio, the Ohio Democratic Party said Thursday. Republican Party officials and the campaign for Republican gubernatorial nominee Ken Blackwell, who is black, said they haven't heard of the ads and can't say whether they've aired in Ohio.

Since she "came out here and sat down on a lawn chair" 10 days ago, Ms. Sheehan said, the situation has "got out of hand and just turned into a media circus." For instance, she cited calls for the president's impeachment as "another distraction off of our original cause." On Sunday, she faced reports that she was not paying her federal income taxes.

    CEDAR RAPIDS — Jamie Licko, Downtown District executive director, isn’t ready to give in to the swarms of defecating crows that have been dirtying Greene Square Park for years. It’s not good enough, Licko says, to just take another round of disgusting photos, write another angry story, have downtown officials scream at City Hall again for help. ‘‘It’s been a constant issue, and it should be something that’s fixable,’’ she said Tuesday. ‘‘I don’t think it’s something we can keep talking about and not doing anything about.’’ Licko said the crow-dropping problem in and near the downtown park has been...

    Here are the 2004 Media Web awards Commentary: Media failed to rise to the occasion -- again By Jon Friedman, CBS.MarketWatch.com Last Update: 12:01 AM ET Dec. 10, 2004 NEW YORK (CBS.MW) - After the furor over former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair marred the media industry in 2003, it seemed unlikely that my profession's image could look even worse this year. But never underestimate us. When the reporting sins of USA Today's Jack Kelley (GCI: news, chart, profile) surfaced several months ago, he had clearly topped Blair and another miscreant named Stephen Glass. The bean counters had their...

    In the September 20 issue of Time Magazine, author David Van Biema/Jackson writes very flippantly about a “Muslims Only” event held at Six Flags in New Jersey. He seems irritated that anyone would raise objections to religious segregation at a public amusement park. Before objections were raised, just how did the event’s organizers, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), plan to enforce Muslim-only entrance to Six Flags? By the way people dressed? By their skin color? Would entrants to the park have been forced to recite verses of the Koran? Were Jews wearing yarmulkes and Christians wearing crucifixes to...

    I was wrong. When I'm wrong, I admit it. And I was wrong. Five months ago, I predicted John Kerry would win the presidential election. I really thought he would for several reasons: President Bush's record – especially on domestic issues – was weak. He didn't show any desire to curtail illegal immigration. He even proposed yet another amnesty program, an idea entirely unpopular with the American people at any time, but I thought politically lethal at a time when the country is facing dramatic terrorist attacks. He also increased spending on a host of programs for which there is...
