    Now the Anti-History movement of the left has a new target. A target as big as a city. A new report from Austin, Texas’s Equity Office about existing Confederate monuments suggested changing the city's name. The report identified several neighborhoods and 10 streets named in honor of the Confederacy or William Barton, a slave owner dubbed the "Daniel Boone of Texas," that could be changed, The Austin American-Statesman reported Friday. Austin’s namesake, Stephen F. Austin - also referred to as the "father of Texas" - opposed efforts by Mexico to abolish slavery in the Tejas province, saying freed slaves would...

The youngsters are participating in the inaugural Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, part of the broader Young African Leaders Initiative...

    As if it wasn't enough for the harpies on The View to live in denial about the nature of our attacker when Bill O'Reilly was willing to confront them with it. NPR has now fired Juan Williams his comments. Can anyone at NPR say with a straight face that they have no idea what Juan is talking about? Their awareness of who flies on a plane with them hasn't been heightened at all since 9-11? I think its time to rename National Public Radio, because I don't know what public they think they're serving, but its not the American...

    A friend of mine, who happens to be of the hippie persuasion, ran up to me with a big grin on her face. "Did you hear the news?" she asked.This friend is a member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, so she loves to squawk about animal rights. She gets a thrill out of protesting zoos, circuses and other kinds of diversions, and she is a diehard vegan. Her shenanigans make for great comic relief, and her newest soapbox is no exception.Apparently PETA has petitioned the town of Rodeo, Calif., to change its name because the word "rodeo"...
