    A committee of Louisiana lawmakers has advanced a bill to the full House that seeks to stop federal health care reform from taking effect in the state. The proposed constitutional amendment states that "no law or rule shall compel any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system." "We think the people ought to decide if this is how they want to be governed," Louisiana Health and Hospitals Secretary Alan Levine told the committee. "Basically the state is asserting it's sovereignty." The governor's office says the federal government is treading on state's rights.

    A Republican lawmaker said Monday that he will propose a constitutional amendment to protect Louisiana from the repercussions of possible national health-care changes. “This is kind of a way to throw the gauntlet down and stand up for ourselves as a state,” said state Rep. Kirk Talbot, a River Ridge businessman. Talbot said he wants to protect state rights in the health-care arena via a constitutional change he will seek in 2010. The change would require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature, then approval by the state’s voters to take effect. Arizona and Florida are already considering similar proposals. “I...

    Game 7 of the Final is hockey's ultimate contest For a hockey fan, Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final is like waiting for Christmas: It seems like the big day takes forever to get there, but when it does, it's well worth the wait. Of course, Christmas comes just once a year. A Final series that goes the maximum seven games comes along infrequently. Since the NHL expanded from the Original Six teams in 1967, the championship round has gone the distance just eight times, including this year's Final between Detroit and Pittsburgh. If the Stanley Cup Final is...

    Where The Spies Are by: Cliff Kincaid, February 01, 2008 How should the media handle sensational allegations that one of the most esteemed members of their profession, former Time magazine journalist and top Clinton State Department official Strobe Talbott, was a dupe of the Russian intelligence service? How should they deal with hard evidence that one of their sacred cows, the United Nations, is penetrated by Russian spies? The answer is that most of them will ignore it. This is the fate they’re giving to Comrade J, a blockbuster book about Russian espionage written by former Washington Post reporter and...

    ...a county councilman in Talbot County, (Thomas G.) Duncan has a problem with a statue of Talbot County's most famous resident...Frederick Douglass, being placed on the courthouse lawn in Easton. That honor, Duncan feels, should only be for those who served in the armed forces, even "The Talbot Boys," who fought for the Confederacy..It's at this point that Duncan needs to run it by me again. A statue paying tribute to "The Talbot Boys" stands on the courthouse lawn. They most assuredly did not "serve their country." The country they served was the Confederate States of America - Maryland was...

    It was generally supposed that slavery in the State of Maryland existed in its mildest form, and that it was totally divested of those harsh and terrible peculiarities which characterized the slave system in the Southern and South Western States of the American Union. The ground of this opinion was the contiguity of the free States, and the influence of their moral, religious, and humane sentiments. Public opinion was, indeed, a measurable restraint upon the cruelty and barbarity of masters, overseers, and slave-drivers, whenever and wherever it could reach them; but there were certain secluded and out of the way...

    <p>SAN FRANCISCO -- The parties at Salon.com have been rather lean lately.</p> <p>Late last year, the pioneering online magazine celebrated its seventh anniversary with a small gathering in its downtown office here. In 1999 Salon had leased two floors in a new office tower just off Market Street. With bare concrete underfoot and exposed ducts and wiring overhead, the office was all dot-com swagger with stunning city views to match Salon's ambition as a public company that would leverage its brand into spinoff businesses in everything from television to software.</p>
