    The Tampa Bay Times ^ | 04-29-2014 | Associated Press
    KENNESAW, Ga. — Police say two people are in critical condition after a gunman opened fire at a FedEx station outside Atlanta, injuring six people in all. Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce also says the suspected gunman worked for FedEx as a package handler. He was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound about an hour after someone called 911 early Tuesday. One employee of the package sorting facility in Kennesaw north of Atlanta said the gunman had an assault rifle, a knife and bullets strapped across his chest "like Rambo." The gunman's identity has not been released.

    No amount of family counseling is going to help here. A Washington State man had to be airlifted to the hospital after his daughter shot him with a hunting bow because he took away her cell phone, authorities said. The 15-year-old girl refused to let her father use the phone to call for help Wednesday evening, forcing him to crawl to a neighbor's house for help, KOMO-TV reported. When officers arrived at the house in Tahuya, Wash. - about 35 miles west of Seattle - the girl fled into the woods with the bow and 35 arrows. A SWAT team...

Police and gunmen exchanged fire during a five-hour siege of a house in the eastern city of Ussuriysk, before officers stormed in. Two suspects, aged 21 and 23, were killed, although investigators said it was unclear whether they had been shot by police or had taken their own lives.

    During the filming of the movie The Expendables, star Sylvester Stallone suffered a broken neck during a fight scene with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. "Actually, my fight with Stone Cold Steve Austin was so vicious that I ended up getting a hairline fracture in my neck. I'm not joking. I haven't told anyone this, but I had to have a very serious operation afterwards. I now have a metal plate in my neck."

    Police say a man walked into the Subway sandwich shop on West Little York and tried to rob it. But instead of getting the cash, the woman behind the counter served him a "knuckle sandwich." “When the register opened, he lunged over and grabbed it. My initial response was to hit him. So I hit him,” Subway employee Yava Matthews said. Police say Tracy Armstead, 29, attempted to rob the sandwich shop on Monday night. When Matthews hit him, he fell back into the wall, but he still had the cash drawer in his hands. “When he proceeded to run...

    Oscar-nominated actors are the most dignified members of our species. They play the serious roles that inspire us and hold a special place of reverence in our culture. But not in Japan. In a country where demoralization is the national pastime, our revered actors, Academy Award nominees and winners both, sell their own dignity for a paycheck because they assume we Americans will never see it. But thanks to the Internet, we can celebrate their shame any time we want.

    Esprit de Corps ^ | March 13, 2008 | Scott Taylor
    One of the most ironic twists to the ongoing mission in Afghanistan emerged from the NATO meetings held in Brussels last week. With member countries either reluctant or unable to add military resources, NATO is now seeking assistance from Russia, its erstwhile Cold War enemy and one-time "evil occupier" of Afghanistan. In fact, the irony is so thick that we should first roll back decades' worth of propaganda and start at the very beginning. NATO was formed in 1949 as a collective self-defence alliance to prevent any encroachment of the Soviet Union into Western Europe. The Soviets responded to this...

    LOS ANGELES - Sylvester Stallone says his latest "Rambo" film and its tag line are inspiring real-life opponents of Myanmar's military rulers. "Either live for something, die for nothing — it's your choice," the 61-year-old actor-director said Saturday in a phone call from Paris, where he is promoting the movie, the fourth in a series. "Students have now used this film as a rallying point and are using the quote, thinking maybe the American military will intervene and save them," he said. "Rambo" has the disaffected Vietnam vet John Rambo trying to find missionaries captured by Myanmar soldiers, who are...

There the president spoke about the economy and the need to renew the Protect America Act, which modernizes outdated foreign surveillance laws. The law is set to expire in just seven days.

    ....It's pretty likely that some people will be heartily offended by Rambo; once again an American hero is mowing down hordes of brown skinned people who have no redeeming qualities or humanity. The leader of the Burmese troops is not only a killer and an %#%^!, he's a gay pedophile! I believe the guy had a mustache but I don't remember it being twirled. But the fact is nobody expects - or wants - reality or complexity in a Rambo movie. Hell, one of the main themes of this movie is that killing is necessary, and missionaries who spend the...

    There is trouble outside Camp Phoenix. The American base on the dusty outskirts of Kabul has called for English translators. The problem is, the Americans have now hired their translator, and a crowd of Afghan job hunters at the camp gate is getting unruly. The US soldiers are nervous. One yells obscenities and waves his gun. The crowd cowers but doesn't budge. Then, another soldier steps forward, armed only with a thick wooden staff, wrapped in peeling red tape. The name tag on his broad chest says "Rambo," and though he wears US Army fatigues, he speaks in perfect Dari,...

    Thailand's film chiefs have told the makers of the next Rambo sequel due to start filming in the southeast nation early next year to avoid excessive violence for fear of corrupting youth or damaging the environment. "We have warned them that any violence has to be reasonable because we care about young people," said Wanasiri Morakul, a director at the Thailand Film Office.

Conflicting versions of the controversial shooting of San Diego Chargers linebacker Steve Foley unfolded yesterday during and after a court hearing in which Foley's female companion pleaded not guilty to criminal charges.

    John Rambo: Sir, do we get to win this time? That was a line uttered by Sylvester Stallone in Rambo: First Blood Part II. Of course in this movie he's referring to Vietnam and our unfortunate "stalemate" in that war. More to the point, the dialogue illustrates that what the soldiers in the Vietnam War were feeling. Most scholars of that conflict would validate the soldiers by saying that the US Armed Forces were severely hamstrung against the North Vietnamese. From 1957 thru 1975 American soldiers racked up enemy bodies by the 100's but did not end the Communist aggression...

Rambo IV is expected to hit cinemas next year, featuring action in Afghanistan and battles with the Taliban.

But bosses at Miramax, makers of the...
