    A North Texas man wants to rename sections of two local freeways that bear the name of a past Democrat Dallas mayor who was a prominent member of the Ku Klux Klan. He kickstarted a campaign to sway city officials into renaming the roadways to honor former President Barack Obama. “African Americans, Hispanics, everyone, whites, should be insulted that we have a freeway named after a former Klansman,” said James Dunn, a former teacher and black activist, according to CBS DFW. He started an online petition this week, reportedly, in response to the recent violence that broke out in Charlottesville,...

    Fox News reporter Leland Vittert got into a heated — and eventually physical — confrontation with activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton, when the latter tried to keep him from questioning Democratic Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. “We can’t ask questions?” Vittert challenged her. “You are a public official and we can’t ask questions?” “You will have the opportunity,” Sharpton said. “Then you’ll answer our questions?” he pressed. “At the press conference, we will answer all questions,” Sharpton said. But as Vittert kept tailing them, a second man stepped between the reporter and the mayor and began pushing him away. Sharpton...

    Monitoring hundreds of millions of phone records is an extraordinary invasion of privacy. When Americans expressed outrage last week over the seizure and surveillance of Verizon's client data by the National Security Agency, President Obama responded: "In the abstract, you can complain about Big Brother . . . but when you actually look at the details, I think we've struck the right balance." How many records did the NSA seize from Verizon? Hundreds of millions. We are now learning about more potential mass data collections by the government from other communications and online companies. These are the "details," and few...

    Nearly 20 years ago, Rawlings Sporting Goods closed its baseball assembly plant in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and completed a move to its other factory in Costa Rica. Rawlings cited Haiti’s political instability for idling about 1,000 workers. Now, almost a month after the earthquake that caused innumerable deaths and widespread suffering and devastation, does Rawlings have a duty to send some business back to Haiti? Major League Baseball should prod Rawlings, its official baseball supplier since 1977, to consider such a move as one way to try to help Haiti. But Bud Selig & Company can no more demand that Rawlings...

    ITHACA NY--In accordance with a federal bill passed last May, Cornell celebrated its first Constitution Day on Friday. Interim President Hunter R. Rawlings III and Prof. Isaac Kramnick, the R.J. Schwartz Professor of Government, used the opportunity to speak about America’s guiding document and President Bush’s departure from it. The requirement that all educational institutions receiving federal funds from the Department of Education hold an annual educational program on the Constitution came as part of an appropriations bill in the Spring. The proposal was forwarded by U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.). Rawlings and Kramnick discussed the importance of separation...

    In Basra and in Baghdad, the people celebrate, but in Clio, Mich., and in Rawlings, Md., they mourn. The Pentagon has released the identities of four more American servicemen killed in Iraq.

That was Army Spc. George A. Mitchell of Rawlings, who told his wife he thought he might apply for a deputy's job at the county sheriff's office when he returned. "He...
