    BANJUL (Reuters) - Europe and the United States should apologize to Africa for the cruelties of slavery, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Sunday, calling on African states to resist modern day U.S. colonialism.

    Washington, D.C. (CNSNews.com) - U.S. Sen.

    DANBURY — In a decision Superior Court trial referee Robert Callahan "agonized long and hard over," he ruled in favor of two accused drug dealers who claimed they were stopped outside the Sheraton in Danbury in 2004 only because they were black. In a written decision dated May 17 and received Friday by defense lawyers, Callahan said he came to his decision, which essentially guts the state's case against the men, "reluctantly" and after "soul-searching." Lawyer James Diamond of Danbury said his client Demetere Taft, 30, of Beaver Street, is "obviously very pleased that the judge has agreed with the...

    Keller Says 'N.Y. Times' Must Look Beyond Its Urban, Liberal Base By E&P Staff Published: June 26, 2005 3:00 PM ET NEW YORK In a lengthy memo published the newspaper's Web site, Bil Keller, executive editor of The New York Times, announced several new policies in response to a recent report by the paper's Credibility Committee.

    <p>I can't believe you post comments like the ones I read today. You do nothing to help Saddam! Allowing such igggnorant kommentary makes you look shabbby and without kredibility. By the way one of your readers mentioned that Jeannie Garafolo has an IQ of 80. I'm sure they didn't actually verify that so I did. In fact Jeannie Garafolo has an IQ of 8000!!! President Clinton has an IQ of 11082!! George Bush 0! You do the math. I would tell you to go to to 2 hell, but for that you need an IQ of...never mind! Maybe if you get all your editors and readers together you might get to 2000000000000000!</p>
