    This gives new meaning to the term ‘steaming cup of joe.’ The Bean Stop in Eau Claire Market is set to start serving Kopi Luwak — better known as cat poop coffee — on Tuesday, one of the most unique blends available anywhere on the planet. “This will appeal to two groups of people,” said owner Ken Cutler. “Coffee connoisseurs and there’s probably a group of people who will have a cup just say they had a cup. “It’s such an unusual, odd and unique product.” Produced in the Doi Chaang region of northern Thailand, Kopi Luwak is made when...

    Although humans come in many shapes and sizes, from the compact Inuit of the Arctic to the willowy Masai warriors of Africa, any two people are a lot more alike genetically than any pair of chimpanzees or gorillas. The reason may be our advanced culture, according to a new study. Our ancestors' different tools, eating habits, and even body decorations limited their mate choices to individuals of a similar culture, the work suggests, reducing the spread of new mutations across many groups. Because only a few of these ancient groups survived, humans are much less genetically diverse than other primates,...

    Michael Savage on now with cogent argument and lots of documentation on why Wall Street wanted Spitzer gone. Info also on Savage's website. Savage will be on just a little while longer, since he's not feeling well today. Savage suggests that either Spitzer be brought back to carry on the investigation he started into who was up to what in the big mortgage companies or that others who can be trusted take Spitzer's paperwork and carry through on Spitzer's investigations and indictments.

  • Should Free Republic become a paid subscription service?

    I am not certain what the legal ramifications would be in changing Free Republic from donations to a subscription service. It seems to me the switch may be detrimental to legal issues such as copyrights. If that is true I'd appreciate if someone could briefly explain that to me. However if that is not the case here is my suggestion: I have been wondering about this for some time now and have not seen any discussions about it. So I would like to ask: Is it time for Free Republic to become an online subscription service? Currently, the site is...

"Yes, I do not wish to be present during this witness," Peterson, 31, calmly told the judge as he was returned to his cell. "It's my choice." It was the first time since Peterson's mid-April arrest that he waived his right to appear in court. Brian Lee Peterson, who autopsied the bodies...
