    A University of Colorado-Denver administrator, already suspended for operating a phone sex website, was apparently also operating an adult escort site offering to go on paid dates at the same time she was employed by the state of Colorado. But her racy outside jobs will not cost her her job. A CBS4 Investigation into Resa Cooper-Morning, the Cultural Diversity Coordinator in UCDs Ethnic Studies department, has now found the $68,000 per year state employee operated a website called Fantasy Elite offering Fantasy Romantic Companionship for $175 per hour. Her website noted that her hours of availability were from Saturday after...

    Do you remember the most Homeric of world trade negotiations, called the Uruguay round, which took place between 1986 and 1994? I was a teenager then and I remember that round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (Gatt) vividly. I had taken to reading the austere Le Monde every day and remember the uncouth Jack Valenti, head of the Motion Picture Association in Hollywood, who particularly despised European film directors for pleading with their governments to exclude cinema, and the arts in general, from the negotiations. Valenti roared back: "Culture is like chewing-gum, a product like any other."...

Heres a partial transcript: Obviously White young girl: Gee, you work with lots of people who dont look like you at all! White mother: What do you mean? Girl: Well, there are Asian people, African-American people, Latino people Mother: We all work together as a team. Girl: Arent they different from you? Mother: In a way, yes.

In a letter responding to a blast from Bush, Tancredo said the governor did not recognize illegal immigration as a problem in Miami. "I certainly understand and appreciate your need and desire to create the illusion of Miami...

    WORRIED that her daughters' budding breasts would expose them to the risk of sexual harassment and even rape, Philomene Moungang started "ironing" the girls' bosoms with a heated stone. "I did it to my two girls when they were eight years old. I would take the grinding stone, heat it in the fire and press it hard on the breasts," the mother said. "They cried and said it was painful. But I explained that it was for their own good." Breast "ironing" - the use of hard or heated objects to try to stunt breast growth in girls - is...

    Dr. Ahmad 'Ukasha, a professor of psychiatry, refers to the celebrations that accompany the circumcision operation which is usually attended by the girl's family and relatives. Dr. 'Ukasha views this as humiliating, because the girl, he says, is crying in pain, while everybody around are singing and laughing. In many cases, the girl feels oppressed and starts hating herself and her gender. A long treatment is required to overcome the bad psychological consequences. However, there are senior doctors in Egypt who do not share this opinion. Dr. Munir Muhammad Fauzi, the Head of the Gynecology Department at the Ein Shams...

    A UPI Outside View commentary From the Life & Mind Desk INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Is it appropriate to say "Merry Christmas" to your Jewish colleagues? If you're Jewish, should you return the salutation with a joyous "Happy Hanukkah?" The answer to the first question is "yes," and to the second it's "yes" as well -- but not if it's Day Nine or thereafter. But there's more to this conundrum than this yearly question of seasonal salutations. Up until the advent of cultural PC-ism, grade school students were taught that America was a wonderful "melting pot." And that image...

    It's Now Official: Individuals and Cultural Diversity Determine Right or Wrong by William R. Darcy Sometimes the signposts of massive cultural change are not always evident. Being sympathetic to the plight of individuals and being tolerant of the opinions of others has always been a strength of America. And in a nation of immigrants it has always been easier (but not easy) to curb the natural human tendency to be suspicious and downright hostile to those of another clan or country. But since the 1960s, and with increasing force in the 1990s, those tendencies have been transformed into a view...
