    The crew of a guided-missile destroyer fired three missiles to defend themselves and another ship after being attacked on Sunday in the Red Sea by two presumed cruise missiles fired by Iran-backed Houthi-forces, USNI News has learned. During the attack against USS Mason (DDG-87), the ship’s crew fired the missiles to defend the guided-missile destroyer and nearby USS Ponce (AFSB(I)-15) from two suspected cruise missiles fired from the Yemini shore, two defense officials told USNI News. Mason launched two Standard Missile-2s (SM-2s) and a single Enhanced Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) to intercept the two missiles that were launched about 7...

During this time, Freemasons tried to bomb the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The bomb did go off, but not even the glass was cracked, which was not bullet proof and very thin [supernatural protection, apparently]. A 5 foot brass cross on the altar was not as fortunate. The tremendous force of the blast caused the cross to be curved. Many Roman Catholic priests were martyred...

    Thursday Jan 17, Tom Brokaw was given time on MSNBC to tell the Founding Fathers the self-evident truths they laid their lives on the line for are farfetched. Are we lucky, or what? Our talking heads know so much more than the men who pledged their lives, their sacred honor to free us from the tyranny of Kings and establish real freedom. Brokaw spoke with Andrea Mitchell. He aimed his remarks at people who believe in the Constitution by saying, in a scholarly formal tone (which passes for derision in his circles), that 2nd Amendment types who say the Amendment...

Mason, 75, who is regarded as one of the world’s greatest stand-up comedy stars, said some minority groups wrongly believe they are still being persecuted because of an inability to escape the past.

He postponed until summer an overseas trip to stay in Washington to help ensure passage and rolled his shirtsleeves up to wade into his delivery.

    A replica of a mildewed 14th- century scroll has been unfurled and displayed at a library in New York. An eagle clutching arrows and ribbons, on a tattered flag made around 1803, has just been restored and framed for viewing at a Philadelphia museum. Near Boston a museum exhibition decodes cryptic symbols like compasses and columns embossed on metal badges and embroidered onto aprons. That the public is now being enthusiastically shown these previously hidden-away items indicates that Freemasons in America are trying to shed their reclusive, somewhat fusty image.

    The government says a 20-year prison sentence for a woman who committed arson at Michigan State University would be the toughest punishment ever in a case of so-called eco-terrorism. Marie Mason is due in federal court at 9 a.m. today. The explosion and fire at Michigan State's Agriculture Hall in 1999 was a protest against genetically modified crops. Damage exceeded $1 million. Prosecutors want a 20-year prison sentence for the 47-year-old Cincinnati woman. Mason's lawyer says that would be extreme. Mason has admitted other acts from 1999 through 2003, including fires at homes under construction in southeastern Michigan and Indiana....

One-third of the signers of the Constitution, many of the Bill of Rights signers and America's first few presidents (except for Thomas Jefferson) were Freemasons, a fraternal organization that became public in early 18th-century England. Although it became fabulously popular in America, at one time encompassing 10 percent of the population, Pope Clement XII condemned Freemasonry in 1738 as heretical. The latest pronouncement was issued in 1983 by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger - now Pope Benedict XVI - who called Masonic practices "irreconcilable" with Catholic doctrine. Still,...

Despite the cramped condition of the tiny jail, the inmates said sitting there was better than working outside, where they might be seen by people they know.

Two students--one had earlier ripped a sign off Khan's chest, the other had repeatedly called him a "pussy"--and a computer-lab staff member assisted the officer in "apprehending" Khan, as university spokesperson Dan Walsch put it, by piling on top of him and twisting his body until he cried out in pain.

    Runaway bride and the cry of wolf! It happens all too often, a person is reported missing. The police have rules on the reporting of a missing person, wait 24 hours, and if they have not made contact, an investigation begins. This is common knowledge to over half of all Americans. The authorities begin their search, the investigating commences, and usually, the media is alerted. If it should be a child missing, Amber Alerts and Levi's Calls go out to all media. In the day and age of satellite news channels, nationwide television networks, and the internet, it is almost...

    MASON, Ohio -- A lesbian couple says a community recreation center's refusal to sell them a family pass because they aren't married is discriminatory. Heather Scott, 33, and Carrie Scott, 40, applied for the family pass for themselves and Heather Scott's three children who live with them and were told they don't meet the city's definition of a married couple. "We're no different than anyone else," said Carrie Scott, Heather's partner and the children's stepmother since the women's civil union ceremony in Vermont in 2002. "Our family is the same as the one across the street. It's a little different...

    SEATTLE – Mary McClinton spent the last days of her life suffering and in pain. She had been a healthy, robust 69-year-old woman who went to Virginia Mason hospital to have a brain aneurysm repaired, but never came out alive. Virginia Mason admitted it made a fatal mistake last November when a doctor accidentally injected McClinton with a highly toxic antiseptic instead of a saline solution or radiological dye. Both were clear liquids that got mixed up because they weren't labeled. "We can't apologize enough for this preventable tragedy," said Dr. Robert Caplan, Virginia Mason Hospital. "They all knew they...
