    A Massachusetts woman may have succumbed to "snowball rage." Marie Needs, 48, was picking up her daughter at Andover High School (search) last Wednesday afternoon when a snowball struck her car. Then another. And another. Needs yelled at the kids throwing the snowballs, then got out and chased them — with a tire iron. More snowballs pelted her, and she went back into her car to get her pepper spray (search). While all this was going on, student Joey Cataldo, 16, came out to the parking lot to find Needs' Honda blocking his car. He asked her to move her...
  • A Blow To The Rule Of Law ( New York Times Two-fer Masthead Editorials: Part I)

    f you are in a "persistent vegetative state" and there is a dispute about whether to keep you alive, your case will probably go no further than state court - unless you are Terri Schiavo. President Bush signed legislation yesterday giving Ms. Schiavo's parents a personal right to sue in federal court. The new law tramples on the principle that this is "a nation of laws, not of men," and it guts the power of the states. When the commotion over this one tragic woman is over, Congress and the president will have done real damage to the founders' careful...

    Capitol Hill man pays the price for comments about bomb, train. Gerry Dunphy grew increasingly angry last summer about the new police checkpoints choking his Capitol Hill neighborhood. And one morning in August, as he was driving his son through one of three checkpoints to get to Union Station, his temper got the better of him. Dunphy, 70, recalls shouting at the officers that they should stop wasting their time on passing cars and worry instead about whether a bomb could be placed on a train passing through Washington. Law enforcement officials say that he went further than that, pointing...

Astonished the king thus addressed his bride, “Woman, you have certainly bewitched me—now therefore be sure you shall perish more miserably than ever woman perished yet.” Ladice protested her innocence, but in vain; Amasis was not softened.

    Richard Cohen's column yesterday exemplifies the incoherent rage of the left which pervades our media. In this column "Rage in Riyadh," Cohen bemoans the "rage" which Saudis feel when they face such inconveniences as "humiliating" immigration delays or the anger when one would-be immigrant was denied a visa because he had ignored a traffic ticket. Yet, many law enforcement and terrorist experts have long-complained that the Visa Express program, which permitted Saudis extraordinarily easy access to America was one of the causes of 9/11, because it gave an upper hand to terrorists, as a column in Thursday's Washington Times stated....

    Dear Human Resources Director: Recently, I gave serious consideration to filing a sexual harassment suit against a fellow employee who was talking about her husband’s erectile dysfunction in the workplace. All of her angry ranting about her husband’s lovemaking deficiencies infringes on my right to feel comfortable at all times in the workplace. I am aware that the right to feel comfortable is not found in the United States Constitution. Fortunately, it is found in the campus diversity handbook, which trumps state and federal statutes as well as the U.S. Constitution. I learned that during Black History Month, which was...

    Aggressive driving along Interstate-75 appears to be more problematic than ever. "We're seeing the problem of road rage increasing," said Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Norman Parks, who has been patrolling the interstates for almost 15 years. "It's scary to drive down here," said one driver. "Weaving, tailgating, cutting people off," said another driver. "When you get all of that, it can pose real problems," said Parks. That's why Florida Senator Mike Bennett is pushing for the Road Rage Reduction Act to be made into law. It's designed to reduce the amount of people in the left lane. "We have a...

    HOUSTON (AP) - Road rage? Try restaurant rage. A 34-year-old man apparently angry that his $6 steak and cheese sandwich was too cold was arrested on a charge of threatening to kill the restaurant manager Wednesday. Police said the manager offered to reheat Devlin B. Nelson's sandwich or make him a new one when he complained. Authorities allege he instead demanded a refund, threw the sandwich at the manager, then threatened to kill her and blow up the restaurant. Nelson, a Houston public works employee, has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the investigation. He remained in...

    Student disrupts protest Julie Piotraschke, October 26, 2004 The detaining of a college student shattered hours of passionate but peaceful protesting by hundreds who lined up Monday morning outside of Island Grove Regional Park. Michael McCarthy, a journalism student at the University of Northern Colorado, was wrestled to the ground by police after he continued to smack an officer on the top of his head with a red and blue "Veterans for Kerry" sign. According to witness Monica McRae, who had come up from Denver in support of the president, McCarthy had ignored the officer when he was asked...

    A forgotten cheeseburger sent two McDonald's drive-through patrons into a rage Friday. The pair stormed into the West St. Paul restaurant, loudly cursed at the staff about the botched order and later allegedly clubbed an intervening customer with a baseball bat. Dakota County prosecutors on Monday charged Miguel Hernandez, 18, and Michael Anthony Lee, 19, with a felony — making terroristic threats. It's the second fast-food rage case to come across Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom's desk this week. A confrontation with a customer in an Arby's drive-through in Burnsville the same day landed Robert Chan Nguyen, 19, in jail,...

Where is the rage, Mr. Kerry" Where is the rage Mr. Kennedy? Do we have a reaction from the Grand Dragon, Klansman Robert Byrd? Will Michael Moore be making a documentary to place the blame on the president? The perpetrators of this horrible crime have stated that it is in retaliation for the alleged abuses...

    WASHINGTON - Egypt's president says Arabs hold a "hatred never equaled" toward America. Jordan's king abruptly postpones a visit to the White House. And those are among the United States' best friends in the Arab world. The war in Iraq, and a shift on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, has left the Bush administration facing growing hostility and an estrangement from friends across the Middle East. "There is enormous anger in the Arab world that needs to be dealt with," said Nail Al-Jubeir, a spokesman for the Saudi embassy in Washington. The White House minimized the problem Tuesday, saying President Bush did...

    WASHINGTON - Truth be told, John McCain really can't stand George W. Bush, even if he agrees with him on a lot of things, especially Iraq. It's amusing for us political reporters to watch the senator from Arizona struggle with the role fate handed him: riding shotgun on the Bush re-election stagecoach. It's hard to know whether McCain, deep down, wants to protect his passenger or let the Indians have him. As for Bush, he doesn't trust McCain, but needs him. McCain's rhetorical flirtation with the idea of becoming Sen. John Kerry's running mate is just the latest act in...

    In keeping with the it's Leninist policy of publishing all the lies fit to print, the New York Times once again let the demented Maureen Dowd out of her cage. Seething with all the rage of a deserted harridan, Dowd regaled readers not with withering wit, of which she has little, or a profound grasp of foreign affairs, of which she has none, but the Democratic lie that President Bush lied and that he is an idiot. (Readers should note that all republican presidents are either evil [Nixon] or stupid [Reagan, Bush, etc]) According to her David Kay provided "an...
