    "Godfather of Rap" Gil Scott-Heron, who in 1970 mixed poetry and music for his militant song "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," died Friday afternoon in a New York hospital, his publicist told CNN. He was 62, and the cause of death was not immediately stated. Scott-Heron was known to be HIV positive and had struggled with drug addiction throughout a large part of his life. "You will not be able to stay home, brother/You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out/You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip/Skip out for...

  • Judicial Havoc: Part III - (confirmation process should NOT be a demeaning process for nominees!)

    In addition to the havoc wrought by the judiciary in our times, there is the havoc wrought on the judiciary itself by others. Some have blamed the murders of a judge not long ago, and the murder of another judge's family, on critics of judicial activism. But, in each of these cases, the motive seems plainly to have been personal animosity growing out of a judge's ruling against the particular individuals concerned. It is doubtful if these murderers had ever read a law journal article or a Federalist Society paper on judicial activism. It is one of many signs of...
  • My opposition to the death penalty is weakening - (Dennis Rader's chilling court testimony)

    My opposition to the death penalty is weakening. I have opposed the death penalty after being persuaded that it contributes to the culture of death that leaves many aspects of our wondrously free and prosperous society quite grim. Nihilism informs our arts. It is a large element in popular culture. It makes fugitive appearances in our discussions of the beginnings and the ends of life. By opposing capital punishment, I have hoped to highlight the glory of life and the vast possibilities for human beings to grow and develop in a civilized way. Now that I have heard the testimony...

    Editor's note: Readers may also be interested in Iran: The Invisible Revolution. During the U.S. presidential campaign, debate over Iran policy received unprecedented attention. The reasons are multifold. With Iran on the verge of developing both nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capability, Washington policymakers can no longer ignore the Iranian threat, especially when confidants of Supreme Leader Ali Khomenei lead televised chants of "American will be annihilated," as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati did last June. American concern over a nuclear Iran is multifold. The danger is not necessarily that Iran would conduct a nuclear first strike, although former president Ali Akbar...

    Posted on Thu, Jun. 24, 2004 Senate candidates to debate Sunday Collins, Cain will attend; Isakson declines invitation BY RICHARD HYATT Staff Writer Three Republicans want to go to Washington as Georgia's new U.S. senator but only two of them want to come to Columbus for a televised debate. Rep. Mac Collins and businessman Herman Cain have accepted invitations for a Sunday night debate at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts. Rep. Johnny Isakson has declined. This won't be the first debate held without the presence of the GOP frontrunner. To date, he has passed on five different debates, most...

    A dramatic blow-by-blow account of America's push into Baghdad was delivered from the turret of a tank yesterday by an embedded Fox News correspondent, Greg Kelly. As confusion reigned over the nature and extent of the US forces' grip on the Iraqi capital, television news networks relayed a to-camera report recorded live during the early stages of their initial push into the city. Surveying the scene from the top of a turret, a helmeted Kelly delivered his report as a column of US tanks from the 3rd Infantry Division surged along Route Eight into Baghdad's suburbs. His cameraman, Mal James,...
