CBS fired Don Imus from his radio show today, the finale to a stunning fall for one of the nation’s most prominent broadcasters.
Truthfully, I was a little surprised when I heard this on the radio earlier. They wouldn’t come out and fire Dan Rather, yet they’ll fire Imus for saying ignorant things. Odd. But typical.
Just as you were contemplating chucking your cold-weather wear and doing some spring cleaning this weekend, an intense storm that rolled into the state today should drop up to a foot of snow across the Denver metro area and along the Front Range foothills.
So, where is this obvious proof of ‘man made global warming’ heading? Enough already. I want some REAL warming!
“To the extent that I made judgments that ultimately proved to be incorrect, I apologize to the three students that were wrongly accused,” Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong said.
Incorrect? The man went out of his way to suppress evidence that would have cleared these young men. He destroyed their lives, and that of their families. I’m thinking HUGE paycheck to these kids, and some serious jail time.
The rates of drug-resistant gonorrhea in the United States have increased so greatly in the last five years that doctors should now treat the infection with a different class of antibiotics, the last line of defense for the sexually transmitted disease, officials said yesterday.
We’ve been so obsessed with anti bacterial this, and anti bacterial that, I’m surprised ANY will work anymore. Get dirty, stop taking antibiotics for every little thing, and get your immune system built back up. (Yes Jayce, I do think antibiotics is one of those good science things.)
Women might soon be able to produce sperm in a development that could allow lesbian couples to have their own biological daughters, according to a pioneering study published today.
That is just so wrong. The Good Lord made us male and female for a darn good reason, and messing with that is just asking for trouble.
Hillary Clinton will try to make more political hay out of the Don Imus controversy by visiting Rutgers University – home of the women’s basketball team disparaged by the now fired talk show host.
There will be some who believe the Hildebeast is sincere. Turning this whole incident into a political ploy is fairly sad.
Cameron said in the past year of lobbying stores in his neighborhood to stop selling blunt wraps, he’s heard that same excuse many times. He finds it especially suspect when the wraps are sold in close proximity to household products associated with smoking crack cocaine, such as individually packaged Brillo pads or miniature “love roses” sold in small glass tubes.
They actually sell those tubes in stores? Hmmm…. Oddly enough, I’ve known many people who buy those papers for actually rolling their own cigarettes. Although, none of them used the flavored, or colored ones. Perhaps they should be behind the counter with the legal smokes?
The House Transportation Committee on Tuesday advanced a resurrected proposal to call on the Tennessee Highway Patrol to enforce immigration laws.
A subcommittee had previously voted to kill the measure sponsored by Rep. Delores Gresham, R-Somerville. But lawmakers reconsidered their action to bring the bill back.
I find it odd that this would even be an issue. Shouldn’t cops enforce the law, which includes the legal status of a driver?
A UN envoy for children in conflict said Thursday she had been horrified by the destruction of a Lebanese village besieged by Israeli troops last year, and that many of Israel’s actions during the war against Hezbollah had violated international law.
Is the UN ever “horrified” by the by the destruction of an Israeli village? Or the bodies of Israeli children blown apart by a suicide bomber? Nope, didn’t think so. Wasn’t international law broken when Hezballah kidnapped the soldier? Has the Useless Numnuts demanded he be returned, in good health?
