    12/25/13 3:15pm (Westfield, NC) A Stokes County family's Christmas dinner erupted into a food fight that started over a disagreement about Duck Dynasty, the A&E channel's reality television show about the Robertson family. The Watson family was at their home-place enjoying a large gathering of grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. "Mamma does it right every year, the food is delicious" said family member Billy Watson; "It's the only time of the year when the entire family is able to gather for an afternoon".

    Alaska man feeds black bear barbecue meat, gets mauled for dessert The drunken man could be charged with illegally feeding wildlife after the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says he 'pretty much goaded' the beast into the attack. Beer, barbecue and black bears are never a good mix. An Alaska man learned that the hard way this weekend when he threw a hungry bear a piece of barbecued meat — only to be mauled by the same bear. "He'd been drinking," Alaska State Trooper spokeswoman Beth Ipsen told the Anchorage Daily News of the man. The unidentified man was...

The human rights groups, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, asked the court to prohibit the government from killing Mr. Awlaki until the lawsuit is heard......

    Despite championing immigration reform in 2007, John McCain is poised to lose the Hispanic vote by a landslide margin that is well below President George W. Bush's 2004 performance. Polls show Obama winning the broadest support from Latino voters of any Democrat in a decade, while McCain is struggling to reach 30 percent, closer to Senator Bob Dole's dismal 1996 result than to Bush's historic 40% four years ago. McCain seems to have wound up with the worst of both worlds: He appears to be getting no credit from Latino voters for his past support for immigration reform, while carrying...

    The head of the College of William and Mary, Gene Nichol, has resigned in disgrace. Several readers send along his resignation letter.

Here’s his letter:....Dear Members of the William & Mary Community: I was informed by the Rector on Sunday, after our Charter Day celebrations, that my contract will not be renewed in July.

    BALTIMORE (AP) -- A federal judge in Baltimore is ordering Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church to pay more than $3,000 in costs related to the funeral of a Marine the group picketed.

Church members also posted pictures of the protest on their Web site. Corporal Snyder was killed in Iraq in March. The lawsuit was filed in June. It says church members violated the family's right to privacy and defamed the Marine and his family at the funeral and on...

    It's a pinch myself day when the lead news story is about recriminations and regrets that Saddam Hussein, a man who incarnates evil, was not treated more decently at his belated hanging. And the editorial hand-wringing is that this was revenge not justice. As though being nice to someone who put human beings in plastic shredders -- head first -- and boiled even his relatives in oil, would make us more civilized rather than less. Revenge is justice. Saddam should have been drawn and quartered. The best thing about his execution was the presence of Shi'ia muslims taunting him with...

Attorneys for the former Bowie County jailer asked appeals courts to block the execution, arguing that Wyatt didn't testify at the punishment phase of his trial because he wrongly...
