    Arlington police have arrested and charged a 24-year-old man in connection with the fatal church attack that left a pastor dead and his assistant severely injured. Records show that Steven Lawayne Nelson, 24, was booked into the Arlington city jail Saturday afternoon. He was charged with capital murder. Authorities initially believed that Nelson was in Dallas but then they got word that he was headed back to his apartment in Arlington where he lived with his mother. Members of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive task force were called in to help with taking him into custody. Earlier today, officials spotted someone...

    Tourists come to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge, AT&T Park, Fisherman's Wharf - and the naked guys in the Castro. This Sunday, a guy was standing on Market Street wearing a multi-colored hat, shoes and a glitter-covered sock over Mr. Happy. The glitter was a nice touch. Did he think no one would notice? "Personally I am not offended by naked bodies," said Dennis Ziebell, owner of Orphan Andy's Restaurant, which overlooks the 17th Street and Market plaza where the exhibitionists gather. "But my customers don't particularly want to look at the window and see that." Not...

    A teacher at Oakland’s Markham Elementary School has been suspended indefinitely after school officials said a pair of second-graders performed sex acts on each other in class – with the teacher present. “I think everyone is taken aback over this shocking incident,” Troy Flint, the spokesman for the Oakland Unified School District, told CBS 5 on Thursday. “Of course, it is hard to understand how that could have occurred.” Flint said the sex acts incident was one of two separate cases under investigation involving the teacher; both incidents occurred last week in the same classroom but he said they didn’t...

The Loudon County Sheriff's Office says the gun-wielding man walked into the Wachovia bank in Sterling, Va., just outside Washington, D.C., around 9:15 a.m. Monday. The robber brandished his firearm and demanded cash. As soon as he secured his loot, he fled the bank in an unknown direction.

Authorities responded to Bernwood Circle near the town of Seneca late Monday morning after a resident complained of a burglar. When deputies arrived, they found Noah Smith, 31, lying face down and naked inside the doorway of the victim's home, the report stated. When the deputy tried to make contact with Smith, he slapped the deputy. In return, the deputy deployed his taser, which had...

    ~snip~ Honestly, though, I'm surprised that so many people have turned against the president. Obviously, if you've lost your job, life is tough, but did voters really believe the country was going to quickly and dramatically reverse course once he was elected? So he hasn't yet made good on every campaign promise—isn't this like being shocked that you didn't lose as much weight doing Jenny Craig as Valerie Bertinelli did, or that your new memory-foam mattress didn't magically cure your insomnia? ~snip~ But when I see Obama on television, I'm unfailingly struck by his intelligence and charisma, by his easygoing...

    For months now President Obama has been out on the campaign trail attempting to rally support prior to November’s mid-term elections. Democratic candidates are avoiding Obama as if he has the plague. Bill White refused to campaign with him in Texas, Roy Barnes, Jim Marshall, John Barrow, John Lewis, and Hank Johnson refused appearances in Georgia, and the stories go on and on. Across the country, Democrat candidates are not running on the merits of the legislation the passed. In fact they are doing their best to avoid discussing healthcare, the stimulus, and Wall Street reform. According to Joe Biden,...

There was a bailout that you supported, there was stimulus that added to our deficit, but yet it seems as though our unemployment rate still rises. You said it won't go past 8% and now it's at 9.5% … So, my question to you is: Why should we still support you going forward with your economic policies and if the economic does not improve over the next years, why should we vote you back in?"

After the furor broke, Dr. Laura apologized for a “horrible mistake.” She also announced she would end her radio show so she could “get her First Amendment rights back” away from the...

One needn't be a constitutional law scholar to discern the Founding Fathers' intent in the Second Amendment.
