    Egypt wants to borrow the Rosetta Stone from the British Museum after winning a battle with France over ownership of painted rock fragments “stolen” from the Valley of the Kings. The French culture ministry has decided to return the 3,200-year-old frescoes, which disappeared in the 1980s, Egypt said, and were acquired by the Louvre in Paris in 2000 and 2003. Zahi Hawass, the head of Egypt’s supreme council of antiquities, had threatened to sever relations with the Louvre unless it handed back the relics. That would have forced the French museum to suspend excavation work in the Pharaonic necropolis of...

    I found in my inbox a “Dear Jennifer” missive from Obama’s Organizing for America outfit (the successor to the campaign): Jennifer – Partisan voices and special interests are showing real resistance to President Obama’s call for making the necessary reforms and investments in energy, health care, and education. That’s why we need to bring the conversation back into homes and communities across America. Last week, thousands of you pledged your support for the President’s economic plan and encouraged your friends and family to join you in a national display of support. Now I need you to take the next step....

    Where I live, instead of bringing mail to my house, the United States Postal Service has set up one of those pedestals with a box lock box with twelve slots where my incoming mail is deposited. So I have to walk about 100 feet from my front door to retrieve my mail. I am sure this is done so that the mail carrier can zip up in their truck and efficiently deal with mail delivery, and zoom off again. Of course, any efficiency in the process for me is offset by the fact that I typically only bother to check...

    (September 12, 2006)-- A violent rampage that began 15 years ago in Huntsville that left two people dead and a third seriously wounded came full circle just after 6 p.m. Tuesday when convicted killer Farley Charles Matchett was executed in the Texas death chamber in Huntsville. The 43-year-old inmate was convicted in the 1991 fatal beating and stabbing of his 52-year-old uncle, Uries Anderson, at Anderson's Houston home. The US Supreme Court refused earlier Tuesday to halt the execution. Matchett also received a life prison term for killing a 74-year-old woman in Huntsville and leaving a 91 year-old Huntsville woman...

    (August 31, 2006)—Texas death row inmate Derrick Frazier received a lethal injection just after 6 p.m. Tuesday in Huntsville for the 1997 slaying of a South Texas woman and her son. Earlier in the day the US Supreme Court refused to halt the execution. Frazier was one of two men sent to death row for the slayings of 41-year-old Betsy Nutt and her 15-year-old son, Cody, at their home on their Refugio County ranch. Frazier's partner, Jermaine Herron, was put to death three months ago. Frazier was the 20th Texas prisoner executed this year. That's one more than all the...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...
