    BATH — Josephine Cushman Vail will lay red tulips on the grave of her little brother today, as she has nearly every year since 1927. Ralph Cushman, then 7, died 80 years ago today, along with 44 other people in what stood for more than 60 years as the largest mass murder in the United States. Vail, 93, said she could just as easily have died with her brother when a disgruntled school board member dynamited the Bath Consolidated School in the quiet, close-knit community 13 miles northeast of Lansing. Vail, then 13, was excused from taking final exams that...

    During the immediate aftermath of the massacre at Virginia Tech one week ago, the University President, Charles Steger, quickly mobilized a campaign to save his career. Within hours, shock and mourning were quickly replaced with a full-scale public relations stint. Unfortunately, President Steger was not the only one aiming to capitalize from mass murder: bloggers and commentators across the nation began advocating for a change in gun control policy - either fewer restrictions or tighter control. Wounds cannot be healed if they are not felt. The administrators at Virginia Tech played down the destruction for their personal gain and at...
  • In Defense of Marxism

    In response to Mr. Cadorette in the "No More Marxists" section of the Winter 2007 publication, I cannot help but to disagree. The first thing that Mr. Cadorette has to understand is the his personal definition of Marxism is very far from the actual meaning. First of all, Marxism is NOT the same as the Socialism exhibited by the USSR. The economic system attempted by the Soviets after the Bolchevik Revolution of 1914 was not so much Marxism (although it was Karl Marx, who WAS a Russian who is the father of Marxism) as it was Socialism. Furthermore, what the...

    Tech gunman shot victims over 100 times By KRISTEN GELINEAU, Associated Press Writer 12 minutes ago Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho fired enough shots to wound his 32 victims more than 100 times before killing himself with a bullet to his head, a medical examiner said Sunday. Dr. William Massello, the assistant medical examiner based in Roanoke, said pathologists have sent blood samples for toxicology testing to determine if Cho was on drugs at the time of his rampage. It could take as long as two weeks to get the results of those tests, he said. Cho was not especially...

    Just before 5am on Monday, April 16, Cho Seung-hui got out of bed and walked to his computer. Perhaps he fiddled with his rambling 1,800-word self-portrait of a killer as the insults and grievances that he had been nursing for years coursed through his head. High on his list were his classmates from Westfield high school, who jeered at him to “go back to China” without bothering to check his nationality. Two of them — who happened to attend Virginia Tech — were going to pay later that day. Then there were the college girls who reported him to the...

    National Review ^ | April 21, 2007 | William F. Buckley, Jr.
    The search for the propellant of the killer-madness in Cho Seung-Hui tells us more about disorders in American thought than about those of the murderer. Recall first and foremost that the crime was quickly identified as the “bloodiest shooting attack in American history” done by a single person. We accepted this—but quickly rejected its corollary: namely, that if it was that—the most violent rampage in 231 years of history—then it had some claim to be called unique. In fact it differs in magnitude but not in kind from shootings in which 23 or 19 people were killed. If a man...

The poses in the two images are similar, and the plot of the movie, “Oldboy,” seems dark enough to merit at least some further study....

    So far, 32 people are dead and another 21 wounded in the attack launched by one gunman reportedly armed with two 9mm pistols and extra magazines at the campus of Virginia Tech on 4/16/07. Virginia is one of the many states with “Shall Issue” concealed gun laws, which means that if a citizen who has not been convicted of a felony or domestic violence, and not judged mentally unstable, the law requires they be issued a concealed gun permit upon request. But nobody in range of the gunman, other than late-arriving police, had a gun. To make it even more...

Dog and cat food products from two more companies, Purina and Hill’s Science Diet, have been added to the list of recalled products made by Menu Foods. The pet food is widely sold throughout North America under 48 different dog-food brands and 40 cat-food labels, including Iams (eyemz), Nutro and Eukanuba. The products are distributed by major retailers like Wal-Mart, Kroger and Safeway. Two...

    Let us now praise the Iraqi legal system. Scorned by international watchdog organizations and self-credentialed legal minds since its establishment in 2003 as a newly independent institution, it has now done something that the international community’s premier courts have consistently failed to do: punished, in a reasonable timeframe, a mass murderer and delivered justice to his victims. Back in November, it may be recalled, Iraq's High Tribunal judged Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to hang for the 1982 massacre of 148 Shi’ites in the city of Dujail. Initial concerns about an interminable appeals process have...

    THE London Tube bombers plotted to kill the Australian cricket team by spraying sarin gas into their change rooms during last year's Ashes series, a friend of the terrorists claims. Al-Qaida commanders allegedly ordered the suicide bombers to get jobs at Edgbaston Cricket Ground and wipe out the Australian and England players. They were instructed to release sarin gas, a highly toxic nerve agent that is one of the world's most dangerous chemical weapons. But cricket-loving terrorist Shehzad Tanweer apparently objected and instead the terrorist cell perpetrated the July 7 underground Tube and bus bombings that killed 56 people and...

The Czech Republic's leading newspaper quoted unidentified sources close to intelligence agencies as saying the captives would have been held in a Prague synagogue while the captors made broad demands that they knew could not be fulfilled. When those demands -- which were not specified by the sources -- were not met, the extremists would blow up the building, killing all who were inside, the paper added. ~ snip ~...

He later pledged "renewed resolve" to remember the lessons of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. The Bushes set floral wreaths adrift in reflecting pools that mark the former location of the north and south towers at the beginning of a fifth-anniversary tour that will take them to all three sites of devastation. They uttered no words at the ceremony, and walked hand-in-hand on the floor of the cavernous...

Just why the 29-year-old unemployed automotive worker allegedly said that remains a mystery. His family says he is mentally ill. But his comments, as recorded in police reports filed by three officers who spoke with Popal, suggest a level of planning that may belie claims of mental illness, authorities say. ...................................................

    Brian Steidle's only weapons against mass killing were his pen, paper, and camera. The former Marine captain catalogs what they caught in Darfur, Sudan, with quick-fire urgency: toddlers with their faces smashed in, men castrated and left to bleed to death, charred bodies of villagers locked in huts later burned down. Charged only with monitoring ceasefire violations in the war-wracked region, he soon grew weary of playing spectator to genocide. So after six months, the 28-year-old Mr. Steidle returned to the United States a month ago and launched his own offensive to stop the killing. In mid-March he criss-crossed Washington,...

Thursday evening, I was lying in bed in my hotel room in Russell Square, less than 24 hours after MI-5 and the British police foiled a plot to blow up as many as 10 trans-Atlantic flights – with a potential death toll of 4,000.

    Two American soldiers, missing since an insurgent ambush at the checkpoint they were manning last Friday, were found dead Monday night on a street just south of Baghdad. An Iraqi General confirmed to the Associated Press that the soldiers’ bodies showed “signs of torture,” and that the men appeared to have been killed in a particularly “barbaric” way. This assertion appears to be backed up both by the fact that DNA tests were required to positively identify the remains, and by the claim of responsibility made by the self-titled new leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, who posted on an Islamist...

The basis for the Greater Albania strategy can be found in the 1878 League of Prizren. The map and borders for the future Greater Albania were determined by the Ottoman Turkish vilayet system. Kosovo and Metohija and Western Macedonia were part of the Kosovo vilayet. The capital of the Kosovo vilayet was Skopje. Kosovo-Metohija is not the end of the Greater Albania ideology, but only the beginning....

Tanjug said TV BN reported the wartime Bosnian Serb Army commander had been taken into custody in the Serbian capital Belgrade and was being transferred via the northeast Bosnian city of Tuzla to the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague. An earlier report by Belgrade's "Studio B" television said Mladic had been located "in the area of...

    The Srebrenica operation was planned so that Bosnian Serb forces were positioned in a shape of a horseshoe, thus intentionally leaving space for the Muslim army and civilians to retreat North, North-West towards Tuzla. The distance of 36km and the configuration of the terrain are such that any man in average physical condition can cross it on foot. The military operation was conducted in this manner with the intention of minimizing the number of casualties, since the Muslims had brought in substantial military forces. If the Muslim forces had been hermetically enclosed, a violent fight would have ensued in which...

These documents showed that the 243rd was not engaged in Racak as claimed by the prosecution. Another claim...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--In what can only be described as tragic, the United States likely experienced its 47 millionth legal abortion at some point in 2005, more than three decades after the Supreme Court issued its infamous 1973 Roe. v. Wade decision legalizing the killing of the unborn. The statistic is based on data since 1973 gathered by the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute and on estimates by the National Right to Life Committee. In the first full year of abortion legalization nationwide (1974), Guttmacher counted 898,600 abortions. That number reached a peak of 1,608,600 in 1990, before falling to 1,293,000 in 2002....

    When President George W. Bush met with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany in the Oval Office this month, the talk turned to Merkel's childhood under Communism, then wandered into the subject of Bush's latest bedtime reading: "Mao: The Unknown Story," an 814-page biography that presents the Chinese dictator as another Hitler or Stalin. Participants in the meeting say that Bush spoke glowingly of the book, a 10-year project by Jung Chang, the author of the hugely successful memoir "Wild Swans," which has sold 10 million copies worldwide, and her husband, John Halliday, a British historian. "Mao" has been at the...

    London, England ( -- A new survey finds British doctors used euthanasia to kill nearly 3,000 patients in 2004. The poll also found that British doctors do not want to see the legalization of assisted suicide despite a campaign to do that. Brunel University surveyed 857 doctors and found that thousands of deaths in 2004 were the result of illegal euthanasia.According to a BBC report, the survey found that, of the 584,791 deaths in the UK in 2004, 936 were by voluntary euthanasia and 1,930 involved the doctor killing the patient without the patient's consent.Of the euthanasia deaths, one-third of...

    A MASS grave containing the bodies of 22 people believed to have been killed during a failed Shiite uprising against Saddam Hussein in 1991 has been found near one of Iraq's holiest cities, security officials said overnight. The discovery was revealed as Iraq remained shrouded in political uncertainty following the December election, with Sunni Arab leaders angry over a decision to annul less than 1 per cent of the votes because of fraud, although they did not rule out taking part in the new government. At least 12 people were killed in attacks across the country, including seven workers slain...

    A SCIENTIST from Blantyre is playing a key part in solving one of the world’s most famous mysteries ... the identity of serial killer Jack the Ripper. Last week, Professor Ian Findlay (39), who grew up in Station Road, and now works in Australia, was in London to test traces of saliva on stamps attached to letters sent to police at the time they were trying to catch the notorious murderer. Ian has developed DNA identification technology called Cell-Track ID at Brisbane forensic laboratory, Gribbles Molecular Science, which can extract and compile a DNA fingerprint from a single cell or...

    WITH the trial of Saddam Hussein under way, those in the God-damn-America camp find themselves uncomfortably wedged. Should they justify their opposition to the war by downplaying Saddam's crimes while sheeting home blame for the present turmoil to the US and its allies? Or do they opt for the defence of moral equivalence, conceding that Saddam was indeed a monster but those US presidents who once backed his regime, including George H.W. Bush, are the real monsters. The best riposte to this warped analysis is a scholarly and sober 700-page volume recently published in France, of all places. Le Livre...

    Visit almost any American college campus, walk down the streets of practically every city, and you will see idyllic youth proudly wearing a shirt showing a handsome Latino face cast against a sea of customary red – emblems of the personality cult of communist revolutionary Che Guevara. The image of Che attracts many youth in the West; they see only dreaming eyes, wild jet-black hair cascading under a military beret that's crowned with a single soviet star. His face is a stamp on products filling sales racks, a symbol, an icon of pop culture – a patron saint for society's...

    "Mao: The Unknown Story" by Jung Chang and Jon Halliday. It has become fashionable to look at Hitler and Stalin as the twin monsters of 20th-century history. Entire volumes (like Alan Bullock's "Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives" and Richard Overy's "The Dictators: Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Russia") have examined these two tyrants through the lens of the compare-and-contrast school of history writing, and much ink has been spilled debating which of them was worse - never mind that such debates seem beside the point, indeed offensive, given the fact that both men were responsible for the deaths of millions upon...

    Hayward - Chai Soua Vang's tearful farewell to his family after his testimony a day earlier proved prophetic Friday, as a jury convicted him of nine charges that guarantee he will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing six hunters and wounding two others. After three hours of deliberations, the jury rejected Vang's claims of self-defense and found the truck driver from St. Paul, Minn., guilty of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of attempted homicide. In addition to the six mandatory life sentences, Vang faces an additional 225 years in prison. His sentencing...
