    A FedEx driver in Iowa City, Iowa simply could not sit idly by when he saw a group of protesters setting fire to an American flag on the city’s cold streets yesterday afternoon. The man, identified as Matt Uhrin, leaped from his truck with a fire extinguisher, put out the fire, and took one of the flags. Uhrin then tried to take a second flag from the protesters, but he wasn’t successful. However, he was able to use his fire extinguisher to prevent the protesters from burning it. During that altercation, Uhrin got into a physical altercation with a couple...

    The U.S. Department of Justice has put little if any effort into investigating the IRS over its targeting of conservative groups (even single individuals, such as Professor Mary Grabar, for daring to oppose Common Core), but it has the resources for far-fetched prosecutions of business officials for alleged criminal activity. One such case recently crashed after almost two years of legal skirmishing in federal district court. The crime the feds were going after was an imaginary conspiracy between FedEx FDX -0.41% officials and online pharmacies to ship sleep aids, sedatives, painkillers and other medications to customers who didn’t have valid...

    An unexpected surge in online purchases is putting pressure on UPS and FedEx to get packages out on time this holiday season, and that could result in extra costs for retailers. Retailers like Target broke online-sales records on Thanksgiving Day and the following Monday this year after luring shoppers with discounts. Broadly, online sales from the long weekend totaled $11 billion this year, according to Adobe Digital Index.

    The next time you order a burrito, it may be delivered by an Uber driver. On Wednesday, Uber is graduating its Uber Rush pilot from an experiment to a business. First launched in 2014, the Uber Rush trial let users hail a courier from the company's app, as you would a regular Uber ride, and track the approaching messenger. When Business Insider tried the New York City pilot, a reporter had a raincoat she forgot at a meeting picked up and dropped off within 20 minutes for $11. That was an extraneous and frivolous use, however — most individuals don't...

I mean, if I have no choice in keeping a SIGNIFICANTLY large portion of my money from being squandered by the folks that I've freaking employed up on the Hill (like drunk girls on Spring break with their Daddy's credit cards), I'm going to be as informed as possible with what's left of said money.

    As the international media and law enforcement authorities begin to investigate how a man who had contracted the Ebola virus in Liberia came to arrive in Texas, new details are surfacing about Thomas Eric Duncan and his voyage to the United States.

    Federal Express was indicted Thursday on federal charges alleging that it distributed prescription drugs and other controlled substances to people that the company knew had no prescriptions on behalf of illegal Internet pharmacies. "We want to be clear what's at stake here: The government is suggesting that FedEx assume criminal responsibility for the legality of the contents of the millions of packages that we pick up and deliver every day,” said Patrick Fitzgerald, a senior FedEx official. “We are a transportation company -- we are not law enforcement. We have no interest in violating the privacy of our customers. We...
