    Trial starts in Las Vegas over Harry Reid’s exercise band injuries Former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid was seated in a wheelchair Monday when his lawyer paused to address the political views emanating from a group of potential jurors in a Las Vegas courtroom. “Our country is about as split as it could be,” said the attorney, Jim Wilkes. “We can’t fix policy today. We’re here about a civil lawsuit. This is about one person’s litigation.” Reid, now 79, sued the makers of a resistance exercise band after an incident that blinded him in his right eye more than four years...

    Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon is synomous with Phillies games. But the Phanatic's flying meat mobile helped injure one fan at Monday's game. Kathy McVay was sitting behind home plate when she got hit between the eyes with a hot dog from Phanatic's cannon, according to Philadelphia 6ABC. McVay had a shoulder injury, so she wasn't able to catch or deflect the dog. "It just came out of nowhere. And hard," she said.

    After seeing FOX News commentator Bill O'Reilly's efforts to help severely wounded United States military veterans regain their mobility with all-terrain track wheelchairs, Richard Hotes was so moved by the gesture that he decided to help. Hotes Foundation volunteers created an obstacle course and, with the help of injured veterans, tested more than 10 types of track chairs. When none of the vehicles met the veterans' expectations, volunteers chose the best available option and worked on a complete redesign with the chairs' manufacturer. After a year of development and testing, a suitable track chair was created and Hotes Foundation volunteers...

    WHAT is Operation Baen Bulk ?? OBB is a different kind of support for the troops. Instead of focusing on individuals, we support entire UNITS, by finding what they need, or want, and can't easily or quickly get while deployed. . .and get it to them. In LARGE quantities. Think of it as the Warehouse Club approach to Soldier Support: we use the power of buying and shipping in bulk, to maximize the stuff delivered to our troops, out at the pointy end of the spear, and minimize things like waste, shipping costs, etc. And in the process, generally deliver...
