So, people are rioting over the police killing someone who deserved it? Absolute stupidity. Also, I love how the MSN article calls him a "victim". Tbf they were misinformed. Which isn't really an excuse, but just saying. This is why you get all the facts first, Memphis! And pretty much ev...

Recognizable characters you can identify with, that's important.

Other than that, great writers are what matter most.

Let's do away with the use of the caucus in primaries
and also eschew super delegates.

Direct democracy belongs most of all at this level. It is hypocritical to speak about the will of the people while clinging to this establishment methods.

The history of hatred there is too deep to heal, I am afraid.
Perhaps partition might work.
I would like to say I enjoyed "Freedom or Death" by Kazantzakis, but there was nothing enjoyable about it. It was an eloquent evocative horror story about ethnic bloodshed.

The East-West division was an artificial one, not based upon history or culture.
Germans endured great struggle to become one nations (as did others, such as Italy).
We should not lightly dismiss this achievement.

They are all like that, TimeWarner too, and all the rest. This is how they make their money.

In principle, cheerleading is fine. In practice, it's inappropriately sexualized. What if cheerleading became a solely male activity, like it was in the early 20th century? George W Bush was a cheerleader. But unlike this kid, he was not exploited. What happens when this little darling is no longer...

With the decrease in governmental support, PBS is more dependent upon private donors. Maybe they were afraid of losing that support. It' is cowardly, but understandable Its still a stupid idea.

In Isaiah, I read that God hates and despises our sacred feasts and new moons, which were among the official rituals of that time. He also does not care about burnt offerings, although that was central to Temple worship. So maybe how we worship is not really that important to God. Instead of the ri...

The team colors are appropriate; take the black for Boston and the Blue for St Louis and you have the Black and Blue championship

Which is exactly the way both teams play the game.

St Louis was last competing for the championship half a century ago. Their opponents? The Bruins.

Catholicism is quite prevalent in the Americas outside of the US (as well as parts of the east coast of the US) and in Southern Europe, and it's the largest Christian denomination worldwide.
