  • Fighter Jets Scramble to Escort Air France Plane to JFK Airport Following Threat

    An Air France plane was being escorted to JFK airport in New York City this morning after an anonymous threat was made against the flight, a senior U.S. official told ABC News. The Maryland State Police Fusion Center received an anonymous call of a “chemical weapons threat” aboard Air France Flight 22, which is en route from Paris and is expected to land at the New York City airport later this morning. The threat is not considered to be credible at the moment, but when officials tried to reach Air France representatives they were unsuccessful because it is also a...

    The IRS may have inadvertently figured out how to win its legal battles against aggrieved tea party groups: Give them what they wanted in the first place — tax-exempt status. That was a major reason a Republican-appointed federal judge on Thursday threw out two lawsuits brought by more than 40 conservative groups seeking remedies for being singled out in the tea party targeting scandal, a victory for the IRS.

    WOULDN'T it be easier if the word "the" was just simply a letter? Well at least one person seems to think so. Aussie restaurateur, Paul Mathis has invented a new letter of the alphabet to replace the word "the" because he thinks it is more efficient. The letter looks like the Cyrillic letter 'Đ‹'. If an upper case T and a lower case h were to have a typographic baby, this is what it would look like. Mathis has invested $38,000 into developing the symbol which he would like to see added as a 27th letter of the alphabet. "The...

    New York City's Czar Michael Bloomberg today proposed banning metal and plastic tableware in NYC. Czar Bloomberg cited the injuries caused by the metal and plastic tableware as the primary reason for the ban, although environmental and dietary concerns were also factored in the decision. Czar Bloomberg cited the statistics and chart developed by Dr. Michael Mann, of Global Warming fame, to support the estimated 20,000,000 injuries each year caused by the offending tableware. When Dr. Mann was questioned about the data and the methodology used to develop and prepare the chart, Dr. Mann accused the questioners of being "deniers"...

    “In popular culture, the phrase ‘city on a hill’ has become so closely identified with Ronald Reagan and before him with John Winthrop that even Christians can forget that the words originated not with a founder of a colony but with the Founder of their faith,” Richard M. Gamble writes in his new book, In Search Of The City On A Hill: The Making and Unmaking Of An American Myth. Gamble teaches at Hillsdale. “The metaphor of the city on a hill comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew,” Gamble reminds us. Specifically,...

    Cynthia Nixon of “Sex In The City” fame (I finally got to see it on E years after its run on HBO; what a loathsome show about some lonely, superficial people) is gay. She said it was a choice — a statement that has angered certain people who want to stifle her free speech and dictate how she feels.

    Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains.

The Emmy-award winning show is watched by a large audience on weekday mornings, and its hosts on Friday included Oscar-winning actress Goldie Hawn. One of the The View’s co-hosts yesterday, Joy Behar, a controversial liberal “comedian” with her own show on CNN Headline News, thought it would be immensely funny to mock the 85-year old Queen as “a bumble bee with a drinking problem”...

    We have entered a momentous period in the history of the American press. The invention of new communications technologies—especially the Internet—is transforming the human capacity to speak, perhaps as monumentally as the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. This is facilitating the largest and fastest expansion of global economic growth in human history. Free speech and a free press are essential to a dynamic economy. At the same time, however, the financial viability of the U.S. press has been shaken to its core. The proliferation of communications outlets has fractured the base of advertising and readers.

    It is the sacred cow of Canadian politics, and those in power who think they will tinker with it do so at their peril. For while the Canada Health Act—the legislation that provides universal health care for all its citizens—is revered by Canadians, paradoxically it is also heavily criticized, as each new survey shows. The term “crisis” tends to be overused today, but when applied to any medical or health report, people do take notice, as when it was recently estimated that some 5 million Canadians—about 850,000 of whom live in Ontario—do not have a family doctor.
