    MILTON, WV - UPDATE: Donald Barker spent Friday morning sifting through rubble, trying to salvage what he could after a fire tore through the Milton Flea Market. He and his family have been vendors for years and lost everything in their booth to the blaze. “It's not as bad as some of the other people, they lost a lot of money,” Barker said. A Milton police officer first spotted the blaze around 8 a.m. Four fire departments responded and were able to contain the fire within an hour. News spread quickly through social media, sparking a frenzy among vendors praying...

    The next step of the "gay marriage" agenda is about to begin here in Massachusetts. It's the push to use the legal system to force religious organizations to include homosexuality and transgenderism. Fontbonne Academy in Milton, MA, a Catholic girls' high school, is under attack by the homosexual movement. Across the country whenever a "gay marriage" battle heats up pro-family people are always told, "It's all about civil rights. It won't affect your religious institutions." And the politicians and judges believe them. That's about to change. This week the powerful Boston homosexual legal group, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders...

    As Detroit – beset by violence, debt and social woes – prepares to undergo a historic takeover by the Michigan state government, the city of Atlanta could be sliding toward a similar fate. Some are quietly wondering whether Atlanta is in danger of becoming “the Detroit of the South.” The city has experienced an ongoing succession of government scandals, ranging from a massive cheating racket to corruption, bribery, school-board incompetence and now the potential loss of accreditation for the local DeKalb County school system. For several years, problems of this sort have fueled political reforms, including the creation of new...

    Dr. Sowell is perhaps one of our greatest living economists. Since arguments and debates about economic matters seem so important to almost everyone during our election cycles, I will never understand America's reluctance to actually take the time and energy required to gain even a basic understanding of the subject. I will likewise never fully understand the nation's economists remaining mostly silent during election seasons and allowing politicians and morons to take it upon themselves to put words into their mouths. When Barack Obama and Bill Clinton stood up during the Democrat National Convention and made the astoundingly false claim...

Phil Donahue Show (1979): Donahue:  When you see around the globe the maldistribution of wealth, the desperate plight of millions of people in underdeveloped countries, when you see so few haves and so many have-nots, when you see the greed and the concentration of power... did you ever have a moment of doubt about capitalism? And whether greed is a good idea to run on? Friedman: Well first of all, is there some society you know that doesn't run on 'greed'? Do you think Russia doesn't run on 'greed'? Do...

    Milton is a small New Hampshire town that knows how to safeguard its secrets -- namely by losing the combination to one very large safe. No one's quite sure when the safe was last opened, but the town's administrator and selectmen were determined to end the mystery of its contents. So they hired a safecracker, Seacoast Lock and Safe owner Paul Letourneau. Letourneau says it took him three hours Thursday to drill through and reset the combination of the safe. "On a scale of 1-10, it was probably a seven," Letourneau said. The safe was immediately closed and relocked so...

    Newsweek and Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson is the best economics writer in the mainstream media today. He nearly always gets things right, and has the numbers to back it up. His column this week on Reagan and inflation is right to draw our attention to an aspect of the Reagan story that has tended to be overlooked during Reaganpalooza, namely that Reagan's steadfast backing of Paul Volcker's campaign to wring inflation out of our economy as a crucial accomplishment, and one that few if any other presidents would have had the stomach to see through: No other possible president...

    It is rare to get an insider's perspective on the emergence of al-Qaeda. It is also rare to get a glimpse of the world of spies and agents. To provide both is incredibly unusual. Omar Nasiri - not his real name but one chosen to protect his identity - says he spent seven years working as an agent for European intelligence services and as an al-Qaeda operative, part of the time in the UK. He provides a unique insight into how al-Qaeda was far more organised, coherent and determined in the 1990s than was appreciated at the time. Jihad militants...

    MILTON, Mass. (AP) — A man on a rampage fatally stabbed his 17-year-old sister, decapitated his 5-year-old sister in front of a police officer and then headed toward his 9-year-old sister with a knife in his hand before officers shot him amid what their chief described as "a killing field." There was no clear motive for the events that unfolded Saturday in a tony Boston suburb that also is home to Gov. Deval Patrick. But there was no doubt at the carnage wrought by 23-year-old Kerby Revelus against his three sisters in the two-family home they shared with their parents...

    Milton Friedman - Good & Dead If anyone could be said to be the father of the Libertarian Party, it would be Milton Friedman. Many men have had many bad ideas, but few have had the opportunity of putting them to such universal use. Father of supply side economics, Friedman is responsible for each of us paying 20% of our federal tax bill for interest on the Reagan and Bush debt. Friedman’s philosophy puts the bill for greed now – pay later on the backs of our children and grandchildren. While the rest of the civilized world has an overall...

    Enhanced pension deals are county's albatross... The county has the distinction of carrying more retirees (6,050) than active employees (4,631) on county health insurance. Add in 3,100 spouses and dependents of retirees, and the county is insuring more than 9,000 individuals on the retiree side. The county now pays out more in health care for retirees than for active employees. In addition to her monthly check, she was promised, and cherishes, free health insurance for the rest of her life. It is the sum of such promises to Schumann and 6,000-plus other retirees that is a major stumbling block as...

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - Blues musician "Little" Milton Campbell, whose gritty vocals and songwriting recalls B.B. King's rough-edged style, was in a coma after suffering a stroke, a friend said on Wednesday. The 71-year-old Grammy-nominated guitarist and singer known for writing and recording the blues anthem "The Blues Is Alright" suffered a stroke July 27 and lapsed into a coma at a Memphis, Tennessee, hospital, friend Larry Chambers said in a telephone interview. Born to sharecropping farmers near the Mississippi Delta town of Inverness -- his father, "Big" Milton Campbell, was a local blues musician -- "Little" Milton picked up a...

    How to Cure Health Care By Milton Friedman Archived Issue - Winter 2001 Since the end of World War II, the provision of medical care in the United States and other advanced countries has displayed three major features: first, rapid advance in the science of medicine; second, large increases in spending, both in terms of inflation-adjusted dollars per person and the fraction of national income spent on medical care; and third, rising dissatisfaction with the delivery of medical care, on the part of both consumers of medical care and physicians and other suppliers of medical care. Rapid technological advance...

    Historically Socialist Sweden Advances Milton Friedman’s Voucher Vision Leaving behind centralized control of schools, for-profit independent schools flourish January 6, 2003, Indianapolis, IN--The Indianapolis-based Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, a leading national group that advocates school choice, has released a study of Sweden’s ten-year-old school financing reforms, finding that they have dramatically advanced parental freedom and improved education in Sweden. Sweden’s government is predominantly based on socialist structures, with high taxation and publicly financed medical care and retirement. School Choice Works: The Case of Sweden, written by prominent Swedish public policy researchers Fredrik Bergstrom and Mikael Sandstrom, reveals that...

    Every day I get letters, in capitals and obsessively underlined if not actually in green ink, from flat-earthers, young-earthers, perpetual-motion merchants, astrologers and other harmless fruitcakes. The only difference here is that Richard Milton managed to get his stuff published. The publisher - we don’t know how many decent publishers turned it down first - is called ‘Fourth Estate.’ Not a house that I had heard of, but apparently neither a vanity press nor a fundamentalist front. So, what are ‘Fourth Estate’ playing at? Would they publish - for this book is approximately as silly - a claim that the...
