Homecoming Queen Kicks Game-Winning Field Goal

  2. A Nebraska girl was banned from wearing a rosary at school (her district says the rosary is gang paraphernalia)

    A truck bomb driven by al Shabaab Muslims killed at least 65 other Muslims at government buildings in the heart of Somalia’s capital on Tuesday. Allahu Oinkbar.

    A returning Libyan Jew says he's been threatened over plans to restore Tripoli's synagogue. And for this we sacrificed our treasure and national honor to fight a Kinetic Military Action?
