    SOUTH STREET SEAPORT — Thousands of drunken Santas terrorized Lower Manhattan when they flooded into the neighborhood for SantaCon earlier this month, openly flouting public drinking and urination laws, locals say. Angry residents attended Community Board 1's Monday night meeting to complain about the latest incarnation of the annual pub crawl, whose participants have been allowed to grow more rowdy every year, they say. "There was public urination, people vomiting all over the place, open containers and no police," said John Fratta, chairman of the Seaport/Civic Center Committee which plans to send an angry missive to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Police...

    A 6-year-old boy struck by a car at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was listed in fair condition Sunday at Gillette Children's Hospital. Zachary Drew, his mother and three siblings had been on his way to greet his father who was returning from an 11-month tour in Iraq with the Oklahoma National Guard, the boy's mother said Saturday. They were crossing the ramp to the terminal around 8 p.m. Friday when the accident happened. The little boy suffered a broken leg and nose, lost most of his teeth, and he may need reconstructive surgery on his jaw. "This guy turns the...

    Cancer weakened, but did not soften Christopher Hitchens. He did not repent or forgive or ask for pity. As if granted diplomatic immunity, his mind’s eye looked plainly upon the attack and counterattack of disease and treatments that robbed him of his hair, his stamina, his speaking voice and eventually his life. “I love the imagery of struggle,” he wrote about his illness in an August 2010 essay in Vanity Fair. “I sometimes wish I were suffering in a good cause, or risking my life for the good of others, instead of just being a gravely endangered patient.” Hitchens, a...

    President Obama’s illegal alien half-uncle argued in court today his arrest on a drunken driving charge this summer violated his constitutional rights and he wants evidence suppressed and the case thrown out. Onyango Obama’s lawyer filed a motion to suppress in Framingham District Court today, claiming he questions the legality of the illegal alien’s Aug. 24 arrest on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and whether the arrest violated Obama’s Fourth Amendment rights against unlawful search and seizure. The motion is to suppress the entire traffic stop by police that night, on claims Obama was not committing...

    The panelists on Fox News’s The Five couldn’t decide what drug Rick Perry was on when he gave his widely publicized off-kilter speech in New Hampshire. “That reminded me when I take an Ambien on a plane and have a scotch,” Greg Gutfeld exclaimed, suggesting Perry had some drinks to loosen up as Joe Scarborough had suggested. “The difference between the right and the left is the left says crazy stuff when they’re sober. I’d rather have a drunk Perry than a sober Obama.” “That looked more like shrooms!” Bob Beckel chimed in. Dana Perino defended the Texas Governor, saying...

    The commotion over the You Tube video, seen below, of Rick Perry’s speech in New Hampshire Friday night, which has gone viral on the internet, is an illustration of the type of cultural clash commonly found during Republican Primary campaigns during the present Red State vs Blue State era that divides the country in many ways. Here you had a born again, cheerful, passionate, sincere, spirit-filled Christian from Texas and an Internet audience of cynical bigoted, well educated mush-for-brains graduates of our finest universities, I suspect who are also probably liberal in political orientation. The later does not include the...

    After Governor Rick Perry gave a speech in New Hampshire last week, he should pack his bags and kiss his hopes of winning the White House goodbye. When you are running for President of the United States, the highest office in the land, you do not go up on stage and make a fool out of yourself! Perry must have consumed several martinis or even shots of Captain Morgan. He was clearly buzzed while speaking to supporters in New Hampshire. After the speech, Perry was embracing a bottle of maple syrup the same way he would embrace his dream girl....

    MARIETTA, Ga. — Families of three teens killed by a drunk driving illegal immigrant are mounting a campaign to keep him from being paroled and deported. The families believe if Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez is deported back to Mexico he will come back to the U.S. and cause the same type of crash that killed their loved ones on Sandtown Road near Booth 11 years ago. They're also not happy he could be released after serving less than a third of his sentence. "He served just a little over 10 years. That's not very long for killing three beautiful young people," Delores...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry raised some eyebrows — and questions about his sobriety — with an unusually expressive speech to a conservative group in Manchester, N.H., on Friday. In the speech, Perry ditched his typically reserved style and instead employed "the sort of tics, facial contortions, mimes, and muggings that one would expect from a comic performer," says Thomas Lane at Talking Points Memo. The media scuttlebutt is largely based on an anonymously posted YouTube compilation of "highlights" from the speech (watch the clip below), but even some in attendance were perplexed. "It was different," Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas said. Another GOP...

    Midnight on St Mary Street in Cardiff and everything is exactly as expected. Half a dozen young women slump in a gutter, men urinate outside a health-food shop and, as hordes stagger between nightclubs, someone lifts up a blow-up doll with a sex toy protruding out of it. The street smells of urine and lager, police struggle to break up a fight outside the Walkabout bar and a paramedic bundles a comatose girl on to a wheelchair. But it's a quiet night for 20-year-old Naomi Jenkins. She has 'only' drunk three shots of peach schnapps, cider and three shots of...
