    Powerline ^ | 04/25/2016 | Steve Hayward
    Today is the 40th anniversary of the greatest play in baseball history: Chicago Cubs outfielder Rick Monday snatching away an American flag from two hooligans determined to set it afire at Dodger stadium in Los Angeles. Scott reviewed this episode here on Power Line back in 2005 (and maybe Paul has, too, but I missed it in my archival search). But here’s the video of the episode with Monday’s recent comments about it at the end. Pay close attention to the narration by the great Vin Scully at the very beginning (this year being Scully’s last in the broadcast booth...

    The movie Office Space is a classic for good reason: We've all had a job we hated so much we wanted to take the printer out to an open field and smash it with a baseball bat. Sometimes you’re stuck because you’re waiting for your end-of-year bonus, need health insurance, or simply want your vacation days for an upcoming trip. Even if you’re in the right place, we all go through periods of disenchantment. In the meantime, here are some dos and don'ts of surviving the daily misery of a job that sucks.
  • The Barren Fig Tree

    Apologetics Press ^ | 2006 | Kyle Butt, M.A.
    Upon encountering the story of Jesus cursing the barren fig tree, the average Bible student is slightly taken aback by the “strangeness” of the events that occur. Mark’s account records the story as follows: Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you...

    There is nothing quite like calling a political opponent’s bluff, which is what President Pro Tem of the State Senate Phil Berger Sr. did to National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) North Carolina Conference President Rev. William Barber. Barber has been the leader of the “Moral Monday” protests at the North Carolina General Assembly, which oppose much of what the Republican-led North Carolina legislature has done. What Berger asked Barber in a letter dated April 2 was exactly what Barber wanted the legislature to do. Barber replied in a letter dated April 17 with his “Five Point...

    Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the...

    **SNIP** During this week's protest, Congressman G.K. Butterfield showed up to support the effort. "We are here today to express our views," Butterfield said. "This is the way we petition our government and we're going to so it very forcefully, not only today but every Monday going forward until we are heard." Asked directly about a newspaper column from a state senator Thom Goolsby, who called the effort "Moron Monday," Butterfield said, "That's a poor choice of words. We have the same thing in Washington with congressmen making statements that are mean spirited. I would hope that this representative would...

    Just a few minutes ago our jib operator Justin came up to me. He said, ‘Glenn, out of all of the things you’ve covered in your life where does this fit in importance? And I said ‘Most people are going to think this is maybe 20 or 50.’ In the last 50 years this is we’ve had the Watts Riots, and the death of the Martin Luther King and the things that I have covered in the last 40 years, I would say this is top five. Maybe number 2. And possibly number one in importance. Number one, is clearly...

    LEOMINSTER, Mass. - A Leominster officer who investigators say directed a racial slur at Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford has been fired by Mayor Dean Mazzarella. Witnesses said Officer John Perrault, who is white, began heckling Crawford, who is black, before a July 5 minor league Portland Sea Dogs game in Manchester, N.H., earlier this month. The witnesses said Perrault, who was off-duty, called Crawford a "Monday," which the player interpreted as a racial slur. The word can be used as a derogatory term for blacks, and is often associated with Mondays being one of the least-liked days of...

    The wounds are always there, even if they’re not always visible from afar. Like the indentations on the Green Monster, they’re historical scars. All it takes is a few ignorant people to reopen an old wound and reinforce an outdated stereotype. It was just 10 weeks ago that a segment of angry Bruins fans took to Twitter and spewed racially-charged insults at Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward, whose goal had eliminated the Bruins from the playoffs. Now, we’ve been forced to confront Boston sports’ racial dark days again. Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford, on a rehabilitation assignment with Double...

    We have lowered our long-term sovereign credit rating on the United States of America to 'AA+' from 'AAA' and affirmed the 'A-1+' short-term rating.We have also removed both the short- and long-term ratings from CreditWatch negative.The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics.More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges...
