  • Video: Man, wrongly imprisoned for 27 years, sings National Anthem before Rays game

    So this is very cool. William Dillon was sent to prison for murder at the age of 21 and spent the next 27 years behind bars. The only problem is that Dillon didn't commit that murder, as was later proved, thanks in large part to the necessary work of the Innocence Project. Dillon, though, doesn't seem to be consumed by bitterness (which would be thoroughly understandable). Rather, he's making the most of his newfound freedom. For instance, he asked to sing the National Anthem before a Rays game, and on Wednesday night that wish was granted ...
  • Chaos Erupts At Patriotic Anti-Bieber Protest After School Bans 'God Bless USA' (Youtube)

    After a Brooklyn principal's controversial ban on "God Bless The USA" from a graduation ceremony in favor of Justin Bieber's song "Baby," several New York Republicans are blasting the decision as anti-American and offensive. Congressman Bob Turner-- who last year replaced disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner-- even staged a bizarre press conference adjacent to Hawkins' Public School No. 90, where he and several elementary school children camped outside on Monday waving American flags and belting out "Proud To Be An American." The press conference, however, took a turn when several hecklers showed up to protest Turner's sing-a-long. Amidst the uncomfortable singing,...

    Dear Gov. Haley: A lot of women are going to be disappointed with your comments on conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham's radio show. This isn't about your plan to create jobs, or the fact that you're encouraging women to run for office. No, I'm talking about how you stooped to a condescending, catty low Thursday in talking about another woman. . . . You responded: "All I will tell you is, God bless that little girl at The Post and Courier. Her job is to create conflict, my job is to create jobs."

    He is found at the very, very end, these days, with little fanfare or triumphalism. If you blinked, in fact, you'd miss Him. But He is there, just the same, and -- to some people in the news media -- it is a very big deal, indeed. God, that is. At the conclusion of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's March 28 speech to the Conservative Party's national caucus, and his March 13 speech to our troops in Afghanistan, God is acknowledged, and His assistance is sought. "God bless Canada," said the Prime Minister on both of those occasions. And Mr. Harper...

The American Center for Law and Justice, an international public interest law firm, represents James Lord - a senior at Dupo High School in Dupo, Ill. - who was suspended for one month from his daily news broadcast after signing off his December 17th broadcast with the sentence: "Have a safe and happy holiday, and God Bless."

    (KSDK) — A student in Dupo, Illinois says he's fighting for his rights: his First Amendment rights. On a school newscast, James Lord ended with the words "God Bless" and that sparked a storm of controversy. School officials say they told him twice not to editorialize. They say his words that aired in the classroom were a reflection of the school, and in this case, a violation of the separation of church and state. Superintendent Dr. Michael Koebel says, "If you go off school grounds you're certainly welcome to use your First Amendment rights and stand on a box and...

    BLACKSBURG, Va. - Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, perhaps the most feared and respected of Confederate generals, was by most accounts an odd person to have over for dinner.Awkward, with a thin, almost feminine voice, Jackson was incapable of chatty conversation. He obsessed about digestion and was known to bring his own food -- crusts of stale bread, usually -- to parties.Aside from his military accomplishments, Jackson's eccentricities are what many acquaintances remembered after his death in 1863. But there was much they didn't see.Jackson's "Book of Maxims," a collection of slogans and bits of wisdom he compiled as a young officer,...
