    As more and more FReepers (old and new alike) post articles, they really need to pay attention to what they are doing. I know there is a need to excerpt many articles, but remember - you have up to 300 words or no more than 1/2 of the article if it is less than 300 words. May I make some basic suggestions when excerpting? In addition to the above mentioned FR guidelines, please copy and paste the "who-what-when..." of the article. Earlier today, someone posted an article about a student getting arrested at school for an item found in his...

    Late Friday, the federal district court in Nevada issued a declaratory judgment that makes is harder for copyright holders to file lawsuits over excerpts of material and burden online forums and their users with nuisance lawsuits. The judgment – part of the nuisance lawsuit avalanche started by copyright troll Righthaven – found that Democratic Underground did not infringe the copyright in a Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper article when a user of the online political forum posted a five-sentence excerpt, with a link back to the newspaper's website. Judge Roger Hunt’s judgment confirms that an online forum is not liable for...

    There are few things more savage and bitter than a nomination fight for the Presidency. You have a dozen or so candidates, all of them seeing a future Presidential portrait in the mirror every morning, separated by the most slender of ideological threads, most of them knowing each other for years, contending for the highest office in the world. The first debates, which seem to happen before some of the voters have even been born, resemble the early rounds of American Idol only more harsh. "Governor Palin, many of your opponents here on stage say you're not informed enough to...

    I have a similar story. When I was seven years old, the young and the hallucinogenic SDS revolutionaries were marching and rioting outside our door, 725 Geneva St., Lake Geneva, WI 53147, on July 4, 1966, also the same date, a year later. Our humble, old parsonage and the church next door were located right at the downtown section of that little resort town for wealthy Chicagoans -- Geneva and Broad, one block north of Main. I remember a dream I had then; the rioters getting more and more violent, my older brothers decided they needed to defend the house....

Tonight, he will lay out the policies to advance that ideal at home and abroad: “Over the next several months, on issue after issue, let us do what Americans have always done, and build a better world for our children and grandchildren.” “First, we must be good stewards of this economy, and renew the great institutions on which millions of our fellow citizens rely.” “One of America’s most important institutions – a symbol of the trust between generations – is also in need of wise...

Meanwhile, greater Los Angeles is absorbing nearly 300,000 more people each year.

One afternoon my friend Harry suggested we take a break and drive around the narrow mountain roads for an hour or so to relax before serving the hotel guests another meal. His car, his idea. Off we went. At one point Harry started speeding, like kids will do, down a steep, two-lane stretch of...

    The second-highest ranking Republican in the House believes renewal of a decade-old ban on so-called "assault weapons" is in doubt, primarily because he doesn't think the votes are there to extend it.
