School fires coach who says he was not sorry for 100-point win
Dallas — The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 sent an e-mail to a newspaper saying he will not apologize “for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity.”
On its Web site last week, the Covenant School of Dallas, a private Christian school, posted a statement regretting the outcome of its Jan. 13 shutout win over Dallas Academy. “It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened. This clearly does not reflect a Christlike and honorable approach to competition,” said the statement, signed by Kyle Queal, head of school, and board chair Todd Doshier.
The school, according to the Dallas Morning News, responded by dismissing coach Micah Grimes, who has been criticized for letting the game get so far out of hand.
Grimes made it clear in the e-mail Sunday to the newspaper that he did not agree with his school’s assessment.
“In response to the statement posted on The Covenant School Web site, I do not agree with the apology or the notion that the Covenant School girls basketball team should feel embarrassed or ashamed,” Grimes wrote in the e-mail, according to the newspaper. “We played the game as it was meant to be played. My values and my beliefs would not allow me to run up the score on any opponent, and it will not allow me to apologize for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity.”

MSNBC: Afghan girls return to school after acid attacks
Original Story Of The Acid Attack On School Girls
Students defy insurgents but remain frightened in wake of horrific assaults
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - Teenage girls in blue and green burqas pour into the schoolyard, where they pull off their coverings, stuff them in their book bags and head to class. It almost seems as if the acid attacks never happened.
But though classes have resumed, the students, their parents and the school's principal remain on edge two months later. The principal says better security promised by the government hasn't come. Some girls are too afraid to tell reporters their names or let their pictures be taken.
In November, three teams of men on motorbikes sprayed acid from squirt guns and water bottles onto 15 schoolgirls and teachers as they walked to the Mirwais Mena girls school in Kandahar, the southern city that is the spiritual birthplace of the Taliban.
In theory the anti-war left should hate these antagonists to the education of little girls more than they hate Bush but then that would take logic.

I always wonder if the actions of some people which are contrary to the logic should logically stem from the narrative that we have been feed about a situation are able to cause certain consumers of the news to break of the rubric that has been constructed for them to follow?
The News Media and certain Anti-War/Anti-Bush activists don't want the masses to ask critical questions about the assertions that they have made regarding "Torture" at the hands of the Americans.
These political asylum seekers from China:
- Are they asking to go home to China?
- Do they want to return to Afghanistan?
- Are they asking to go to the peace loving nation of Iran or Pakistan?
- Why on Earth would they return to the nation that has TORTURED THEM?
If all of this is true that you have been told about US torture then WHY?????????
The narrarator say that they will face TORTURE if returned to China. Does any one figure that the thing that is called "Tourture" in China is far worse than what the USA is said to do?
Why is it that the USA's supposed deeds are so much worse in the eyes of the World?
Why would people want to come to the USA after this?
Clearly the media and anti-war activists have been LYING

Tough One For Feminists: Actress Aubrey O'Day Denounces Mormons As She Invites Her Parents To See Her Playboy Shoot
Fox News: Aubrey O'Day Does Playboy, Gets Mad at the Mormons
I must admit - I had never heard of this woman before this article.
She may indeed be an attractive woman but not too keen in linking it all together
What is a feminist to do?
Applaud her stance against the Mormons who have the audacity to defend Traditional Marriage?
Condemn her for posing in the nude and thus given men an objectified woman for them to masturbate from?

Though Keith Olbermann (and the guy he interviewed from "The Nation" last night) will be pissed at this news........I applaud our military for doing this!
There are some things that are different between "Left and Right". This issue will expose these points. "The Left" is only able to remain upon their ideological high horse because it is not inclined to get into conflicts that will cause it to get a stain on their white gloves. This should not be mistaken with the claim that their positions have no consequences. There are grave consequences to pay. The fact that the other side DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN about what they think is problematic in their ability to enforce a standard across both sides. Thus they are only able to enforce these standards upon America.
Official: Guantanamo Detainee Was Tortured
Susan J. Crawford says the techniques used on a man allegedly planning to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were "overly aggressive and too persistent."
A Bush administration official responsible for reviewing practices at Guantanamo Bay says the U.S. military tortured a Saudi national who allegedly planned to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Washington Post reported.
"We tortured [Mohammed al-]Qahtani," Susan J. Crawford told the Post. "His treatment met the legal definition of torture. And that's why I did not refer the case" for prosecution.
Crawford is the first senior Bush administration official who investigates Guantanamo dealings to publicly say a detainee was tortured.
"The techniques they used were all authorized, but the manner in which they applied them was overly aggressive and too persistent. . . . You think of torture, you think of some horrendous physical act done to an individual," she told the Post. "This was not any one particular act; this was just a combination of things that had a medical impact on him, that hurt his health. It was abusive and uncalled for."
Interrogation techniques used on Qahtani included sustained isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity and prolonged exposure to cold. He was hospitalized twice.
Qahtani, allegedly planning to be the plot's 20th hijacker, was interrogated from November 2002 to January 2003 after being captured in Afghanistan.
"There's no doubt in my mind he would've been on one of those planes had he gained access to the country in August 2001," Crawford said of Qahtani, who remains detained at Guantanamo.
Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said in an e-mail to the Post that investigations into detention operations "concluded the interrogation methods used at GTMO, including the special techniques used on Qahtani in 2002, were lawful."

Billionaire kills himself over financial meltdown
Berlin — German billionaire Adolf Merckle has committed suicide after his business empire, which included interests ranging from pharmaceuticals to cement, ran into trouble in the global financial crisis, his family said Tuesday.
The 74-year-old’s body was found Monday night on railway tracks at Blaubeuren in southwestern Germany, prosecutors in nearby Ulm said in a statement. They described the death as a “railway accident” and said there was no evidence that anyone else was to blame.

In Iraq A Female Bomber Blows Herself Up And Her Shoes Go Flying In The Air, 38 People Are Killed - No Protests
Fox News: Homicide Bomber Kills at Least 38 in Baghdad
BAGHDAD — A female homicide bomber blew herself up on Sunday among a crowd of pilgrims worshipping at a revered Shiite shrine in northern Baghdad, killing at least 38 people and wounding about 72, the Iraqi army and police said.
The attack during one of the holiest periods for Shiite Muslims came just as Iraqi forces took the lead on security under an agreement with the United States that went into effect on New Year's Day. Under that agreement, U.S. forces take a back seat on security issues in much of the country following the Dec. 31 expiration of a U.N. mandate for foreign troops.
The woman, wearing a traditional black cloak, approached the gate to the shrine of Imam Mousa al-Kazim, one of the holiest men in Shiite Islam, witnesses said. She apparently blew herself while among a group of Iranian pilgrims in front of the shrine's main gate, they said.
"Around 16 Iranian pilgrims arrived here at this gate, they came from the market area and a few moments later a blast occurred," Mahir Abu Mahdi, a witness, told Associated Press Television News.
The office of Iraqi army spokesman Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi confirmed a woman wearing an explosives vest was responsible for the attack, which occurred just before noon in the northern Shiite neighborhood of Kazimiyah.
