  • Last Call on Ladies’ Night -- $5 beers and government overreach.

    In New Jersey, it's last call on Ladies' Night. This week, director of the state division of civil rights, J. Frank Vespa-Papaleo, announced that the Garden State will henceforth ban the longstanding practice of offering drink and admission discounts to women on designated ladies' nights. The 13-page ruling lectures that a bar's desire to attract customers doesn't override the "important social policy objective of eradicating discrimination." In this case, "discrimination" refers to a Cherry Hill restaurant's Wednesday-night practice of charging men a five dollar cover while letting women in free and offering them cheaper drinks. This ruling will apply to...

    I turned it over to my ABC channel thinking Monday Night Football would be on. When I got to ABC I saw something entirely different. "The Practice" was on. So while I surfed on FreeRepublic I left it on in the background. I heard something about Guantanamo Bay and it got my attention. There was a courtroom scene with a man interrogating a woman. They made Guantanamo look like a death camp. They starting inserting terrorist groups here and there. It looked like the person writing the script knew some names and just threw them into a huge bin and...

    Two Hevron residents were illegally imprisoned for a night - a mother and her nursing baby. Yesterday morning, when the mother was brought before a judge, he rebuked the police for having provided false information and causing him to order an illegal imprisonment. The story began when the police arrived at Yifat Alkobi's home on Tuesday afternoon to arrest her, after an Arab resident of the city complained that she had built a playground on his property. She had refused an earlier summons to come herself to the police station, on the grounds that the charges were too ridiculous to...

    It's not easy being a humorist. Some days you wade knee-deep in a flood of ideas, quips and witty repartees. The only problem you have then is deciding which of your comic gems to use and which to save for the drought that you know is coming. And the droughts always come. That's most days. I know I've written some really funny pieces. And I also know that I've written some real clunkers. The way I know that I'm really hitting my comic stride is when I laugh out loud as the words pour from my keyboard (Alas, it's been...

    Bars, clubs forced to drop promotions in face of lawsuitsBy Alex Roth UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER It might seem like a harmless marketing stunt, although some lawyers will tell you it's an insidious form of anti-male discrimination. Either way, it's now history in the Gaslamp Quarter. Several local bars and clubs have been forced to drop their so-called ladies night discount-for-women promotions in response to a series of lawsuits claiming the practice discriminates against men. Lawyers quietly settled all the suits last month. Seven nightspots in the Gaslamp and elsewhere in San Diego County agreed to pay a total of $125,000...

    Years Were Longer 1.3bln Years ago: Chinese ScientistsPeople who complain that there aren't enough hours in the day might have preferred to live 1.3 billion years ago. At that time, according to the latest research by a group of Chinese scientists, there were 15 hours in one day, 42 days in a month, and 13 to 14 months, or more than 540 days, in a year. The finding was obtained through a five-year systematic study of stromatolite samples, known as "stone with memory", by several researchers with the Tianjin geology and minerals research institute under the China Geological Survey...

    On March 22nd, Don Cherry of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada stood up for America and criticized the Canadian government for its anti-war, anti-American stance. Now the CBC website has yanked the March 22nd Real Video link from its Don Cherry Coach's Corner homepage. I had viewed the entire 7-minute clip just the other night, but now it's the ONLY video clip that is missing from the entire hockey season's archives! This comes after Cherry delivered more harsh criticism of the Canadian government and anti-war "kooks" in a recent U.S. radio interview.

    U.S. forces look to night operations to avoid heat By Will Dunham WASHINGTON, March 31 (Reuters) - U.S. and British forces may be compelled to fight at night because of the searing heat if the war in Iraq drags on into late spring or early summer, analysts said on Monday. The troops could also risk heat stroke on the battlefield if they don full-body chemical warfare suits in soaring temperatures. Every day that passes raises the chances that the invading armies will have to fight in the heat expected to come to Iraq, particularly southern Iraq, starting in late April...

    US opens way for summer war in Iraq to be fought at night By Sean Rayment, Defence Correspondent (Filed: 05/01/2003) Allied commanders are drawing up plans to fight a war against Iraq entirely at night, allowing an invasion during the heat of summer. Front-line American troops have undergone intensive training recently in preparation for night combat. American soldiers possess the world's most advanced battlefield night-vision equipment. Generals believe that their ability to fight in complete darkness will prove to be a vital factor in the outcome of the conflict. The possibility of a summer invasion gives President George W.

    Silent Night's 'lost' stanzas are heard again By Michael Leidig in Oberndorf, Austria (Filed: 22/12/2002) The carol Silent Night has been re-recorded - adding three "lost" verses and with slight alterations to the music - after purists in Austria, where it was written, demanded a return to its original form. Silent Night, composed in St Nikolai's church in Oberndorf, near Salzburg, in 1818 by a local schoolmaster who was also the church organist, is one of the world's most popular carols. The modern version comprises only the first two and the last of six original verses. The Silent Night Association,...
