    CONCORD, N.C. -- “Impeach Obama. “ “Al Qaeda’s favorite days: 9/11/01 and 11/04/08.” “Work Harder. Obama needs the money.” The bumper stickers and posters sold at “Free Market Warrior” at Concord Mills are meant to be “biting,” the kiosk’s owner Loren Spivack said. At least one passer-by found them racist and bigoted, and took time to tell the mall in a letter and a letter to the editor of the Charlotte Observer. Whatever your opinion, the fact is this: At the end of July, “Free Market Warrior” will not be allowed at Concord Mills Mall. The kiosk chain’s owner shared...

    Shopping centres on alert for terrorism attack The security services are preparing shopping centres across the country for a successful terrorist attack that would probably result in the deaths of dozens of innocent people. Duncan Gardham 18 Jul 2009 Ibrahim's attempt was the third time in four years that terrorists have targeted the large crowds that gather in these relatively unguarded places. In March 2004 a plot to blow up the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent with half a ton of ammonium nitrate fertiliser was foiled by MI5 and a month after Ibrahim's arrest last year, Nicky Reilly, another Muslim...

    Prominent Vietnam veterans and their families are appalled by an advertisement for a major local mall that shows a woman in front of a wall that strongly resembles the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, with the names of the center’s stores appearing instead of the names of the war dead. Tysons Corner Center reacted quickly to condemnation from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and ordered the immediate removal of 440 of the ads from the Metrorail cars where they have been posted, mall spokeswoman Allison Fischer said Tuesday afternoon. The Tysons ad features a black granite wall engraved with a list of...

    New Delhi: There is an unusual calm, amid hectic police activity, in the Lajpat Nagar market these days. The popular 3Cs Mall and the entire area around it has been turned into a fortress after the Delhi Police received specific security inputs that the building would be blown up in the next 15 days. According to sources in the Southeast district police, they got inputs from intelligence agencies about a possible threat to the mall a few days ago. After the message was forwarded to the local police, they cordoned off the entire market. Intelligence agencies reportedly told the police...
  • Terror police in hunt for Brit bomb cell number 2

    PHOTO CAPTION: "A second al-Qaeda terror cell is believed to be planning carnage in the UK." SNIPPET: "Senior security sources last night revealed they are hunting extremists aiming to bomb a location such as a nightclub or shopping centre. They believe the cell will target London rather than the North- West, where 11 men were arrested on Wednesday, as the capital holds more "international significance"." Evidence gleaned from the arrests was revealed to Cobra, Whitehall's emergency committee of intelligence chiefs and ministers.

    Michael Steele, with a knowing laugh, notes how "packed'' the shopping malls are these days, in the midst of a daunting recession. The Republican National Committee chairman was commenting on a caller's comment on Bill Bennett's radio show. The caller questioned how bad the economy really is, considering the fact that when he looks around he doesn't "see people spending any less money than they have been.'' "I've heard a number of people say that across the country,'' Steele replied with a laugh, and pretty well laughing all the way through the nodding comment: "The malls are just as packed...

    If you've ever arrived home safely from a shopping spree, thank a mall cop. Tom Walton of AlliedBarton Security Services, one of the nation's largest providers of mall security professionals, complains that his people aren't getting any respect from Hollywood filmmakers who increasingly portray them as dorks, slackers and wannabe police officers. "These hard-working, highly trained men and women are our country's first responders who have a wide range of skills — from the sensitivity to deal with lost children to the ability to address criminal activity," Walton wrote in an article carried in several publications. As if malls didn't...

    A woman jumped to her death in the Queens Center Mall atrium about 3 p.m. on Wednesday, landing on and injuring a high school student four levels below, officials said. The crowds in the shopping center in Elmhurst screamed and ran, and police officers had to arrive soon to help calm the crowd. The Queens district attorney, Richard A. Brown, said the woman was in her early to mid-50s and in the company of two teenagers when she jumped. He declined to release her identity immediately. A waist-high glass barrier runs around each floor of the atrium. It appeared that...

    Haven't walked through the Del Amo Fashion Center in a few months, but the wife needed an eye exam, so I went to drop her off at Pearle Vision and take the kids for Dippin Dots. Well, there's no more Pearle Vision. They've been bought out by LensCrafters. Them's the breaks. Del Amo's a huge mall. Dippin Dots is quite a haul from the eye doctor, And I couldn't help but notice that about every third store was shuttered up. Many left were having closing sales--everything must go. We get to Dippin Dots and...well that's where it used to be....

    The Global Business Center in the Hi-Lake Shopping Center has 42 stores. The 20,000-square foot center has a little bit of everything, from home decorations to clothes. The mall is not just for Somalis, but it does have some items that you might not find at other stores. There is also a beauty shop, but it is not like others. It caters mostly to Muslim women. "In our culture we can't show our hair, so if we have a lot of privacy, other beauty salons, we wont have that privacy," said shopper Asha Abdulla. There are only about a handful...

    Any Mathmaniacs out there looking for a good time on a Friday night? I suspect that you might have to have better than average skill to do this, but math is math. It's free from opinion and sometimes the truths that are revealed are more powerful than punditry. I floated this question a couple of days ago, but it was during a slow traffic hour and to a separate thread. It was also before this particular item was yanked from the Stimulus Shakedown. Anyway, I was curious if anyone might have the math skill to breakdown the cost of resodding...

    . A casual discussion of Obama's political situation today inspired the following analysis and predictions. 2009-01-29 : A Historical Preview The Obama Presidency is probably doomed to failure ... notwithstanding Rush Limbaugh's recently expressed hope that Obama's policies fail. The Obama White House is guilty of extraordinary political mistakes (as follows) that reveals either a terrifyingly confused President Hussein ... or worse still ... a Machiavellian power struggle birthed in an Administration still in it's infancy. (1) Obama's very peculiar nomination of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (the now internationally known IRS tax-cheat) is astounding, at the least. Geither's continued support...

    The teenagers weren't thinking about last-minute holiday purchases when they pulled into the Montgomery County shopping mall two days before Christmas. Instead, one of the teens later told police, the group went to the crowded mall to randomly shoot someone. All four, including a 14-year-old girl, are members of the Bloods street gang in Prince George's County, authorities said. Two of them opened fire in the parking lot of Westfield Wheaton Shopping Centre when they spotted members of a rival gang, police said. In announcing the arrests yesterday, county police said the four were being held on charges of attempted...

    So I took the kids out to the mall to shop for Mom two days before Christmas. I want them to know that Christmas is not just about receiving but giving as well. Now let me ask a weird hypothetical. If I showed up at the Mall wearing only briefs and say my wife showed up in a minuscule bra and panties we'd likely be dragged from the premises and arrested. And rightly so, especially if you've seen me in briefs. But no matter what, it's bad, right? So why is it OK for some of these stores to have...

A bystander saw what was happening, pulled out his own gun and exchanged gunfire with one of the muggers. The suspects ran, but one was later caught. That suspect was wounded, but did not realize it until police caught...
