  • Ray Rice Wins Appeal, Can Return to NFL

    Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension against the NFL and is eligible to return immediately, according to people familiar with the matter. Rice, who was indefinitely suspended in September after new evidence emerged in his domestic-violence case, can sign with a team immediately, though it isn’t clear if a team will do so with just a month left in the season. Rice was cut by the Ravens in September. The appeal was heard by Barbara Jones, a former U.S. District Court judge.

    Ray Price has revealed he's battling pancreatic cancer, but the 86-year-old country legend refuses to let the disease stop him from entertaining his adoring fans. "The doctor said that every man will have cancer if he lives to be old enough," the singer tells the San Antonio Express-News. "I don't know why I got it -- I ain't old." This is Price's second cancer scare. In 2009, he underwent surgery to remove polyps from his colon. The music icon's latest diagnosis came after gallbladder surgery revealed a tumor. He endured six months of chemotherapy and is happy to report the...

Ray Bradbury, master of the sci-fi fantasy and author of Fahrenheit 451, died Tuesday at 91.The man who chronicled dystopian societies had strong political beliefs and spoke as darkly about contemporary politics as he did about burning books. "I think our country is in need of a revolution," the Los Angeles Times quoted him as saying in 2010. "There is too much government today. We've got to remember the government should be...

    ISLAMORADA— A spotted eagle ray that made spectacular leaps from the turquoise waters of Islamorada on Friday gave an Illinois family an unforgettable fish tale to take home from their Florida vacation. The Hausch family was enjoying an eco-tour boat ride on Friday afternoon when the 200-pound spotted eagle ray with a 5.5-foot wing span that they were photographing leaped into their boat and struck Jenny Hausch in the chest, officials said. "She was not harmed and managed to get out from under it," said Officer Robert Dube of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Division. Hausch was with...

    SCRANTON - A federal grand jury has indicted longtime State Sen. Raphael J. Musto, the latest legislator to be caught up in an overlapping series of corruption investigations. The indictment announced Tuesday alleges that Musto (D., Luzerne), 81, accepted bribes, gifts, and construction work from an unnamed contractor in return for his help in obtaining state grants and loans. Known as "Ray," Musto, who is to retire next week after 38 years in the General Assembly, has been a political fixture in the state's northeastern region since 1972, when he succeeded his father to a seat in the state House.

Kakugawa is currently homeless in Los Angeles, sleeping in the beat-up Mazda of his friend Jason Myles. He has been in and out of prison for the past few decades, mostly on charges related to cocaine possession and dealing. "To be honest with you,...

    A massive gamma-ray burst detected last March, believed to be the brightest ever seen, turns out to have been aimed directly at the Earth. A narrow jet that drove material toward us at 99.99995 of the speed of light is revealed in the data, itself wrapped within a somewhat slower and wider jet. The best estimates are that an alignment like this occurs only once every ten years. Says Paul O’Brien (University of Leicester, and a member of the team working on the Swift satellite): “We normally detect only the wide jet of a GRB as the inner jet is...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- On leave from the violence he had survived in the war in Iraq, a young Marine was so wary of crime on the streets of his own home town that he carried only $8 to avoid becoming a robbery target. Despite his caution, Lance Cpl. Robert Crutchfield, 21, was shot point-blank in the neck during a robbery at a bus stop. Feeding and breathing tubes kept him alive 41/2 months, until he died of an infection on May 18. Two men have been charged in the attack, and Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason said Friday the...

The TV chef is working on an animated series that stars herself as a young chef. The show is being produced by Oprah's company, Harpo Productions (naturally) and is scheduled for debut in January 2009. Now, I'm not sure how I feel about this one, but to be quite honest, an animated version of Rachael might be easier on the eyes. Then again, it'll still be her voice.

    There is a weak new movement among a few misinformed Protestant apologists which attempts to quickly master the Church Fathers and twist them anachronistically (I love this word, especially since it is one of our critic’s favorite words) to fit their Protestant traditions and wishes. Many Protestant apologists, and often the anti-Catholics in complicity with them, simply parrot the likes of William “Bill” Webster, but Webster proves to be much better at it than the parrots. Funny thing how history repeats itself. The Papal antagonists of today are nothing new. This “patristic argumentation” against the papacy was done with much...

    Mayor Ray Nagin, ridiculed nationally and derided some locally following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, has been re-elected to office in a fairly tight race against Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu. Nagin took over 80 percent of the African-American vote and just over 20 percent of the white vote in defeating Landrieu. The totals are in contrast to four years ago when Nagin got 84 percent of the white vote in his race against Richard Pennington. Nagin received national attention as the mayor of a devastated city, especially with calls for the federal government to "get off their ass" and help...

    NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Entertainer Bill Cosby urged New Orleans' black population on Saturday to cleanse itself of a culture of crime as it rebuilds from the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina last year. Cosby, whose criticism of some aspects of modern African-American culture has stirred controversy in recent years, told a rally headed by black leaders that the city needed to look at the "wound" it had before Katrina struck. "It's painful, but we can't cleanse ourselves unless we look at the wound," Cosby told the rally of about 2,000 people in front of the city's convention center.

    An exotic kind of nuclear explosive being developed by the US Department of Defense could blur the critical distinction between conventional and nuclear weapons. The work has also raised fears that weapons based on this technology could trigger the next arms race. The explosive works by stimulating the release of energy from the nuclei of certain elements but does not involve nuclear fission or fusion. The energy, emitted as gamma radiation, is thousands of times greater than that from conventional chemical explosives. The technology has already been included in the Department of Defense's Militarily Critical Technologies List, which says: "Such...

What interested us most was seeing the names of Kenneth Starr's favorite journalistic cheerleaders on the list of recipients. At the very top, and deservedly so, was Sue Schmidt of the Washington Post, known as "The Stenographer" for her practice of repeating verbatim everything Starr's people told her.

    American military scientists are developing a weapon which kills by delivering an enormous burst of high-energy gamma rays, it is claimed today. The bomb, which produces little fallout, blurs the distinction between conventional and nuclear weapons, and experts have already warned it could spark a new arms race. The science behind the gamma ray bomb is still in its infancy, and technical problems mean it could be decades before the devices are developed. But the Pentagon is taking the project seriously. The plans are getting under way at a time when the Bush administration is seeking ways to expand its...

    German investigators say they have evidence that Mohamed Atta, the suspected ringleader of the Sept. 11 attacks, and two accomplices trained at Qaeda camps in Afghanistan from late 1999 to early 2000. They have also established a clear link between Al Qaeda and a recent attack on a Tunisian synagogue, a top official said. The timing of the Afghanistan training, outlined yesterday by a senior investigator, provides the strongest evidence so far that plans for the attacks on the United States were worked out there. Less than six months after leaving Afghanistan, Mr. Atta and the other two men...

To the delight of those who admire Bill and Hillary Clinton, he repeatedly exonerates them, claiming that there was insufficient evidence to convict them of any wrongdoing. The media coverage of his massive five-volume opus has been limited and uncritical. Comment from Clinton supporters has been loaded with claims that it proves that Bill and Hillary never really did anything that would justify the estimated $70 million cost of the eight-year investigation.

    Ray Reiterates There Was Sufficient Evidence To Prosecute Clinton Thu Mar 28 2002 10:49:33 ET Former Independent Prosecutor Robert Ray once again explains how he had enough evidence to prosecute Bill Clinton for lying to a federal grand jury. Speaking on FOX NEWS CHANNEL's HANNITY AND COLMES Wednesday night, Ray Said: "What you're talking about are aspects of the evidence in connection with was appropriate to exercise my discretion and charge the former president with a crime. I made the judgment, notwithstanding the fact that there was sufficient evidence to prosecute in connection with the Lewinsky investigation . By...

    It strikes me as odd that there isn't a continuing string of discussion re: the GOP nomination contest to choose the Party's standard-bearer for the fall campaign against Bob Torricelli. So, as a service to NJ Freepers -- and those who pay attention to NJ politics -- I offer the following analysis of the state of play in the nomination contest as it currently stands, and would love to read comments: 1) Essex County Executive Jim Treffinger is the current front-runner (just ask him), by virtue of the fact that he's already run once before for the U.S. Senate AND...

    Former independent counsel-turned-Senate candidate Robert Ray, who headed up the final leg of the eight year long Whitewater probe, said Wednesday that if he gets elected he'll have no problem working side-by-side with his investigative quarry, Hillary Clinton. "I've worked side-by-side with those under the most difficult of circumstances in Washington, D.C.," Ray told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." Asked specifically whether he could work with Mrs. Clinton, Ray said without hesitation, "Absolutely. I can work with anybody." "Do you like her?" Alan Colmes followed up. "I've never actually met the first lady, believe it or not," replied Ray....

    The five-volume final report of Independent Counsel Robert W. Ray documents the dishonesty and crimes of the Clintons and some of their cohorts, but it ignominiously retreats under the banner of "insufficient evidence" from holding them legally responsible. It also suffers from serious flaws of omission and misrepresentation in recounting the evidence. This is most conspicuous in the total failure to discuss the evidence showing that the most serious crime the Office of Independent Counsel had to deal with was the cover-up by the Clinton White House of the murder of its Deputy Counsel, Vincent W. Foster, Jr. The OIC...

    Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) is calling for an investigation into former independent counsel Robert Ray, whose final report on Bill and Hillary Clinton's Whitewater scandal was released Wednesday. "Leahy is questioning whether former independent counsel Robert Ray violated any laws by engaging in political activity prior to resigning his special prosecutor's post," reports WCAX-TV news in Burlington, Vt. Ray resigned from the Office of Independent Counsel last week to seek the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Robert Torricelli (D-N.J.). As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Leahy wields enormous investigative power and could put a major crimp in the...
  • Ray: I Can't Convict 'Criminal' Clintons

    Bill and Hillary Clinton benefited from their "criminal" Whitewater land scheme, Independent Counsel Robert Ray concluded today, but he claimed he didn't have enough evidence to convict them. Ray's final five-volume report says Whitewater partner Jim McDougal wrongly used money from Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, which he and wife Susan ran, to benefit the Arkansas land deal he cooked up with the Clintons. "There is some evidence that Governor Clinton knew or should have known that Jim McDougal was not conducting Madison Guaranty's affairs as required by banking rules," said the report. "Insufficient evidence exists to establish beyond a...

    Independent Counsel Robert Ray, who succeeded Ken Starr as head of the eight-year-long probe into Bill and Hillary Clinton's Whitewater involvement, has resigned amidst allegations that the job posed a conflict of interest with his highly publicized ambitions to seek New Jersey's U.S. Senate seat this year. While Ray filed his final report on the Monica Lewinsky scandal last week, and cut a quot;no indictmentquot; deal with Clinton in the same case on Jan. 19, 2001, he has yet to issue a report on the larger Whitewater scandal. Neither Ray nor Starr have ever issued findings on the original impetus...
