    Been watching the Trayvon threads closely, and following the news. It is mere curiosity on my part, watching how both sides set the narrative, or at least attempt to. Some guy kills another in Florida - how does that impact me? Yet it did. I am not going to even try to minimize the total horror George Zimmerman is going through right now. Hunted and vilified for protecting his life and his community and with a totally illegal bounty on his head. Innocent people forced to flee their homes thanks to one idiot who couldn't be bothered to check the...

    A few people asked me to write this, after a couple of comments I made on another thread. The first few chapters of Genesis are, with minimal mental gymnastics, a clear and accurate statement of science, as we understand it today. I am not talking from any particular creed here. Though a Catholic, (and without any authority!), I am from a background of a devout Protestant and much less devout Jewish culture who is, like many people, simply looking for answers. My training was as a Biochemist, at a time when we were first starting to map the genome. So,...

The first shooting involved a single hunter who fled the scene, while the second involved a group of other hunters. The victims — identified only as two Jackson residents, ages 60 and 34 — each had pellet wounds to their face and hands, but the injuries were not considered serious. A state...

The whole conversation is rigged,” said Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet. “The fact that we don’t get to a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck.

Payne recalled the first question of the press conference was asked by the New York Times environmental reporter. "How do we get Americans to stop driving SUVs?" Payne said the reporter asked. Kyoto sets binding agreements for 37 countries for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to the United Nations.

    During the 2008 political campaign, then-Senator Barack Obama called for a national discussion on race. Later, Attorney General Eric Holder called us a nation of cowards for not having such discussions: He said that Americans are afraid to talk about race, adding that “certain subjects are off-limits and that to explore them risks at best embarrassment and at worst the questioning of one’s character.” So let’s try to honor these doubtless well-intended requests. It’s entirely possible that President Obama has poisoned the well for at least a generation. It has nothing to do with the fact that he is black;...

    The Speaker of Iran’s eight Majlis Ali Larijani denied allegations of sexual abuse of detainees yesterday while several Majlis lawmakers confirmed such reports in interviews with Rooz. They added, however, that they had been banned from discussing the matter. Meanwhile, pro-government media outlets demanded the prosecution of Karoubi for disclosing the existence of rape in prisons. These debates are broiling while one Majlis lawmaker told Rooz, “During the special Majlis committee’s visit of the Evin Prison, several prisoners openly talked about sexual abuse; even though they did not specifically use the word ‘rape’ and only spoke about sexual abuse.” Expressing...

    The powers that be have decreed that homosexuality and all its variations are normal, and woe to anyone who dares question this alternate lifestyle. Homosexuality has been added to the list of topics, along with race and global warming, that is off limits for discussion. The debate has been declared over. Homosexuality, which not very long ago was defined as a “disorder” in medical journals, is well on its way to becoming a lifestyle option. Despite the fact that it is based on a premise which has been thoroughly discredited. The normalization of homosexuality has its genesis in 1948, when...

What separates it from other news sites is its use of AP news stories and user submissions. Basically every news story that appears on the AP is automatically posted to Newsvine (they suggest that stories will appear there before other place because of lack of editorial intervention). Users can also "seed" stories from other web sites on the "vine". Finally users can also write...

Dick Durbin of Illinois to questioning by Tim Russert, host of NBC's "Meet the Press." Russert put Durbin on the rack last Sunday, torturing the poor man with his own contradictory words. When Durbin was first elected to the U.S. House, you see, he was pro-life.

    I wanted to start a discussion about the upcoming feast of St. Joseph the Worker. In the traditional Mass (Missals dated between 1956 and 1962), this feast is celebrated on May 1st. as a feast of the First Class. This year it falls on Sunday and therefore, it supersedes the 5th. Sunday after Easter, with a Commemoration of the Sunday.
