    The State Department is dismissing a three-year old letter written by then-Senator John FN Kerry on behalf of Code Pink members seeking access to Gaza as a 'form letter' after the letter came to prominence again this week. A State Department official reportedly told The Blaze, “The letter from then-Senator Kerry regarding the humanitarian mission in Israel and the Palestinian territories was a form letter that was auto-penned — standard constituent mail that congressional members send out as a common practice,” the official said. “Senator Kerry never saw it, nor did his senior staff see it. It was put together by...

    October is the pink month for the NFL. Players, coaches, cheerleaders and even stadiums are adorned with the color to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The league also sells pink merchandise (hats, jerseys, etc.) and donates a portion of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. How much of the proceeds? Well, not a whole lot. ESPN’s Darren Rovell is reporting (via Business Insider) that the league takes a “25 percent royalty from the wholesale price (1/2 retail), donates 90 percent of royalty to American Cancer Society.”

    Every October, pink becomes one of the primary colors on display around the NFL as part of the league’s breast cancer awareness campaign. Last year, the league had the referees in a Dolphins-Jets game use pink penalty flags and they extended it to the entire league on Sunday. Given all of the other pink on uniforms, around the field and on television graphics, it made it hard to see when a flag was down.

    It is interesting to observe how the US government and major media are staying silent on the case of Bradley Manning, the 25-year-old private first-class in the Army who leaked a vast collection of classified documents to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks. Those of us who consider him a true American hero for what he did can finally heave a sigh of relief now that the word "accused" need no longer be affixed to his whistleblower status. On February 28, before a military judge, Manning acknowledged responsibility for releasing the information and pleaded guilty to 10 of the 22 charges facing...

A while ago he was caught on a string of burglaries and was thrown in jail for four-and-a-half years. His modus operandi was to sneak into houses while people were out doing yardwork and swipe all their valuables. Childs served his time and was released in May. But old habits die hard, it seems, because he was back snatching purses in no time. But this time, he chose the wrong house. According to reports, Rebecca Larson, a...

    What does this stuff do to the taste and texture of ground beef? For the taste test, I kept it simple and pure. I formed a half-pound of each ground beef into a thick burger patty, adding nothing to the meat. I added nothing to the pan. Meat this fatty generally bleeds out a robust amount of grease, so I wasn't concerned with sticking. That was my second surprise. The pink slime patty released very little fat during cooking. The other patty gave off two or three times as much. First, the unadulterated burger. The aroma was luscious. The meat...

    It is sad to find so many professing Christians who appear to regard the wrath of God as something for which they need to make an apology, or at least they wish there were no such thing. While some would not go so far as to openly admit that they consider it a blemish on the Divine character, yet they are far from regarding it with delight, they like not to think about it, and they rarely hear it mentioned without a secret resentment rising up in their hearts against it. Even with those who are more sober in their...

Despite the concerns of anti-gun campaigners, there has been an 83 per cent rise in the number of women buying firearms for personal defence, and handbag-sized models are fast becoming a sought-after accessory across the U.S. Most weapon brands now offer a 'female-friendly' range that wouldn't look out of place in a toy shop, with many offering to customise pistols with pink paintwork and Swarovski crystals.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – A Springfield Mass Transit District bus driver has received a one-day unpaid suspension for wearing a pink necktie to help raise awareness for breast cancer. The driver, 46-year-old William Jones, had to serve the suspension, but his action led the transit district to agree that employees could wear pink on Fridays October in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Jones, who said he planned to file a formal grievance, said he has had a number of relatives who have battled cancer, including a grandmother, a sister, several cousins and a niece.

    This month, like every October, a sea of pink ribbons washes over products from sneakers to snacks. While the effort raises research dollars, it leaves some breast cancer survivors feeling that companies are profiting from their pain.When KimZielinski was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 33, well-meaning friends inundated her with products bearing a little pink ribbon. Each product’s maker promised a cut of the sales price to a breast cancer charity, and these friends felt they were supporting the cause and, by association, Zielinski. A petite brunette who’s now 35, she was enormously grateful for...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- When Sherry Johnston left a Palmer courtroom Wednesday, there were lingering questions: What will her sentence be? Where is Levi? And what's with the pink handcuffs? Turns out there's a story behind those pink handcuffs that puts Sherry Johnston six degrees of separation from one of the most infamous sheriffs in the land. Shortly after Johnston pled guilty to possessing the painkiller OxyContin with the intent of delivering it she prepared to head back to jail. That's where Court Services Officer Pierre Burkett comes in, sporting of all things pink handcuffs. Both Johnston and her attorney, Rex...

    A pair of flamingo chicks at London Zoo have been left 'terrified' of the colour pink. The birds, named Little and Large, developed the phobia after being fed using a pink sock puppet. Zoo staff are now hoping they get over their aversion before developing their distinctive colour, reports the Daily Telegraph. Keeper Alison Brown, 30, said: "To try to encourage Little to feed by himself we've been wearing a hand puppet which imitates adult flamingos, but unfortunately he was really terrified of the socks." Young flamingos take up to a year to turn pink, after they shed their grey...

    Story #9: Robert Gibbs Wears Pink Tie to Match His Face RUSH: Look at Fox! Look at Gibbs' face. Look at that. They gotta be doing that on purpose. I mean, that's cool. Maybe it's breast cancer awareness. Instead of wearing a red ribbon, he's painted his face pink to go along with his pink tie. It's not the TV because when they go to a different shot, everybody looks normal. Everything else in the picture looks normal except Gibbs and his tie match. It looks like a 14th degree sunburn. Do you agree with me? Yeah. Okay.
