U.S. Tourist Drugged, Robbed, Killed by Train in ItalyYou see what happens when trains go bad, don't you. I blame the mafia. It's everywhere in Italy, and obviously this poor train got mixed up in the wrong crowd when it was but a little hand cart. Who could have foreseen that it would have come to this?

"I’m, you know, not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans, because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And so, I have been very concerned about how to think and what to do about that because I don’t like … that. And then I’ve been, this, you know, concerned about, oh, how should we deal with the Olympics, because they’re not being nice to the Dalai Lama who is a good friend of mine. And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma? When you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?"Translation = I'm a dumb ass and it's been a while since I showed it off in public.
"We are living in an America that, in the last seven and a half years, has waged an unnecessary war, established prison camps, condoned torture, employed corporate armies, eliminated the right of habeas corpus, practiced extraordinary rendition, and believe me, this is only a partial list," Lange said.Nothing inspires new graduates like telling them that their country is going to hell in a hand basket. Luckily we have the Obamessiah to save us all from ourselves.
Ratings for "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and circulation of the talk queen's magazine, "O," are suffering steep declines, indications that her core audience — white women 35-54 — may be disatisfied with some of her recent forays into political activism.It seems that Oprah may have let all that success go to her head just a little bit, fooling her into thinking her
Nielsen Media Research reports Winfrey's talk show has fallen nearly 7 percent this year, its third straight year of decline. Meanwhile, Audit Bureau of Circulation figures show her magazine slipping more than 10 percent in three years.
"No, we will not bury him at Germantown Masjid," said Tariq El Shabazz, managing director of the mosque. "We don't want one slight scintilla hinting that we condone his behavior."I'm been saying for quite some time that what Islam needs is more Imams to stand up and say enough is enough. Well, someone did, and my hat is off to him.
On Sunday evening, a friend of Cain's family asked if Cain's burial could take place at the mosque on Germantown Avenue near Logan Street, El Shabazz said.
El Shabazz declined to conduct the service after researching Islamic law and meeting with Saadiq Abdul Jabbar, chief executive of the mosque; Imam Talib Abdullah, and others.
"We don't tolerate that kind of behavior," El Shabazz said. "Their actions are not from Islam. You don't dress like a woman, you don't rob people or transgress against them or commit murder. On all three grounds, they are dead wrong.
"We are not saying that Muslims should not bury him, or that he should not have Janaza [funeral prayers]," he added. "He is a Muslim and he has that right, but we don't want that here."
A five-member panel has concluded unanimously that Mylan Inc. executive Heather Bresch, daughter of West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, did not fulfill the requirements for an M.B.A. degree from West Virginia University and that administrators acted improperly in granting her the degree retroactively in October, according to a person familiar with the report.Further down in the article you learn that
Ms. Bresch, chief operating officer at the Cecil generic drug maker and a family friend and former business associate of WVU President Michael Garrison, has insisted she completed a master's degree in business administration in December 1998. She has repeatedly declined to provide a transcript or other documentation and has not spoken to the Post-Gazette since October, when she told the newspaper she had earned her degree.Oh, so now she's a family friend and former business associate of WVU President Michael Garrison. I'm sure everything's on the up and up, then. I mean, no university president would allow his institution to award an MBA to someone that wasn't qualified just because they're a family friend and happens to be the daughter of the governor, would they?
Rose Taylor Says:Let me say, if you're 51 years old and you've never thought enough about politics to vote even once in all that time, don't bother now. You're an idiot. You've lived a life determined by others, and by politicians elected by people who either care more than you do, so they actually take the time to learn about issues and vote for who they think is best, or they have acted like you are now, voting out of blind emotion.
