The Washitoni Rednecks, a moderately successful softball team in Washitoni, Kansas, has received some criticism this year. It seems that several laborers in and around Washitoni consider the logo “Rednecks” to be uncomplimentary, if not demeaning.
Love others as much as you love yourself,” Jesus told his followers. These words are considerably more than a sugary Sunday-school story. For those who take these words to heart, “love others” has profound, life-altering implications, not all of which are warm and fuzzy. Consider the life of Bernard Lichtenberg, arrested seven decades ago. His crime: He loved. Lichtenberg was a Catholic priest serving in Berlin before the outbreak of World War 2. When Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power, he recognized the coming terror better than most, and made it his ambition to help the Jewish people and other persecuted groups.
There are some people who, quite frankly, are impossible to love. You can’t dig deep enough, can’t try hard enough, can’t believe enough, and can’t go far enough to make it happen. And I’m not talking about the likes of Adolf Hitler and Charles Manson, either. If only a few such sinister creatures existed, then the world could sing together one great chorus of “Kumbaya,” and move on to the Promised Land.
COMMES, France — Weather conditions over Normandy had been iffy for days. Showers and wind in the morning gave way to glorious spring sunshine in the afternoon, then electric green lightning storms over the sea at night.
Is it possible that Kerry and Obama are so naïve about negotiating with Iran that they really think that they have pulled off something wonderful with the Islamics? Have neither of them heard about tawriya, an Islamic doctrine that allows lying in virtually all circumstances where the Islamic wishes to keep their true intentions secret from Infidels (nonbelievers)?
“So now the Koch brothers realize that running the government from their ivory towers, by manipulating campaigns has resulted in creating monsters they can’t control. Now they disassociate themselves by sending letters to public officials. Like voting, creating monsters has consequences.”
Walking past via the breezeway outside, you might poke your head in, scan the room briefly, and decide to move on — but, oh, the things you would miss. Like, say, Abraham Lincoln’s original signature. Or two lead bullets that collided in air during a volley between Union and Confederate soldiers at Gettysburg. The items are part of “Documenting War: The Kinnaman Collection,” an exhibition on display at Gilbert Historical Museum. Though it takes up just a single room (and a waist-high case in a hallway), it packs a punch.

“I can’t believe I’m in the same room in Gilbert, Arizona, with Abraham Lincoln’s signature and Thomas Jefferson’s signature. It’s crazy,” says museum volunteer Cathy Schnaze.
She manned the exhibition the day I looked around, noting weighty items such as the signatures of Patrick Henry, James Madison, Robert E. Lee, George S. Patton, Winston Churchill and even Adolf Hitler, and more everyday things, like a ceramic gingerbeer (like rootbeer) bottle from the Civil War era or a tiny, weathered Catholic Mass book found in the hand of dead French soldier during World War I.
The items, somewhere between 200 and 300 in number, are only a fraction of what Gilbert’s Gary Kinnaman, retired senior pastor of Word of Grace Church, has collected over the years. [More on next slide ...]
It is astonishing to me that a self-professed “retired consulting engineer” could not understand that Professor John Lott’s hypothesis of a 3-percent-per-1-percent relationship between gun ownership and crime rate reduction is a LOGARITHMIC function.
So the President released his list of executive orders and suggested legislation last week — nothing surprising there, given the President’s previous comments. None of them will stop a madman from killing. Even the President recognizes that. But they might diminish the amount of carnage the madman can inflict. And if we’re lucky, might even prevent him from carrying out his murders.
Oskar Knoblauch, the author of “A Boy’s Story — A Man’s Memory Surviving the Holocaust 1933-1945,” will recount his story of loss and survival at the Red Mountain Library on Saturday, Jan. 26.
Let’s face it, the nation’s founders didn’t create the Second Amendment to allow people to kill defenseless, unarmed school children.
Mitt, the means is the end. The way you get there is what will determine what you get when you arrive. No one can serve both God and money. Your early conditioning has warped your priorities. A values clarification is definitely in order. Both Hitler and Mussolini intended to improve the human race. They were not stupid men, but they were extremely ignorant. Please stop the lies and manipulation. They will not make you happier. Happiness will come along only with honesty, complete honesty.
NEW YORK — The focus in the days ahead is on Madonna the musician.
Two hours with Saddam Hussein's psychotic, bloodthirsty butcher of a son. Now there's some true counterprogramming to the big, splashy summer fare out of Hollywood.
BERLIN -- Former SS sergeant Adolf Storms lived in Germany unnoticed for more than six decades after World War II until an Austrian university student last year came across his name while researching a 1945 massacre of Jewish forced laborers.
HARTFORD, Conn. — A piece of skull with a bullet hole through it that Russian officials claimed belonged to Adolf Hitler actually came from a woman, scientists at the University of Connecticut concluded.
I am happy to live in a country where you can believe whatever you want to believe no matter how crazy it might be.
BERLIN — Down and out at this time last year, Dwight Phillips was close to hanging up his track spikes.He was injured, off the Olympic team and taking a hit in the real estate market. The 31-year-old American turned all that around Saturday, bouncing back from the tough times of 2008 to win his third world title with a jump of 28 feet, 1/4 inch.
An incident with a bodyworker and another with my husband have me questioning everything.
NEW YORK - After the reasonably strong box office performance of "Valkyrie" over the weekend, skeptics were robbed of the chance to declare "Flop!"
LOS ANGELES - Hollywood had a happy holiday with a huge Christmas weekend as movies from Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett and Adam Sandler all opened strongly.
Big star. Big story. Big budget.
Filmmaker and World War II buff Bryan Singer read of the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, and the first thought to cross his mind was "thriller."
None of the actors listed below will miss a meal in 2009. None will have to tighten his Versace belt, have his Gucci driving shoes resoled or be on the lookout for the repo man. However, in film, perception is everything, and even though these guys have gotten away with plenty because they are who they are, they may no longer be who they were.
