Fresno County, CA won a judgment of almost $600,000.00 against evil 3M Corp after proving that Scotch Tape labeled "for one inch use" was actually only .94 inches wide.
I'll sleep better tonight knowing that the scourge of international tape terror has finally suffered a serious blow.

The fact that the civil rights struggle is over and won does not mean that there are not major problems confronting many members of the black community but they are not civil rights problems and have little or nothing to do with racial discrimination. While not every single vestige of racial discrimination has disappeared, Obama and the Rev. Wright are absolutely wrong in suggesting that racial discrimination is anywhere near the major problem confronting a large segment of the black community. The major problems are: family breakdown, illegitimacy, fraudulent education and a high rate of criminality. To confront these problems, that are not the fault of the larger society, requires political courage and that's an attribute that Obama and most other politicians lack.
It's unfortunate that Dr. Williams' views won't be incorporated into the "national dialogue on race" that Sen. Obama claims he wants. All Americans are the poorer for that.

Someone donated limousines for the family. The sheriff met them at the funeral home. He led them on the long drive across the state of Alabama, lights flashing. Something amazing happened along the way. At every county line, other sheriff's deputies waited in their cars, ready to escort the Conleys, blue lights on, all traffic stopped. Nothing was interfering with their awful journey
that night, from Lauderdale County to Lawrence County, then on to Limestone and, finally, Madison. All along the way, people lined the roadside, waving American flags. When the sun went down, they shined flashlights on the stars and stripes, so that the only things the Conleys saw blazing across northern Alabama were small circles of light with flags inside.
When they reached I-65, Alabama state troopers blocked off the interstate, clearing the way. Marines loaded the casket into the hearse and then the procession turned around.
It was time for Matthew to come home to Greenhill.

The first President to be subject to this new restriction? George W. Bush.
This seems stunningly stupid to me. The same Congress that refuses to reform its bridge-to-nowhere earmarks system finds protecting the lives of former Presidents to be prohibitively expensive.

Fatah operative Muhammad Shehadi, suspected mastermind of last week's Yeshiva murders, assumed ambient temperature today after a brief encounter with an unspecified number of "IDF forces." Fatah and PA leader Mahmoud Abbas denounced Israel's action as a "barbaric holocaust...perpetrated against our people, our women and children in Gaza." Fatah's primary benefactor, the U.S. State Dept, could not be reached for comment (ok, I made that up).
Congratulations IDF--you rock!
Update: Ynet describes Shehadi as a member of Islamic Jihad who used to be a Fatah member.
