  • School Shooting in Colorado

    Yesterday was Hitler’s birthday and at Columbine High School in Littleton, just outside Denver, it was marked by the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. As junior Evan Vitale said about the shooters: "They always have the neo-Nazi look, so we were talking about them and Hitler’s birthday even before the shooting started. Everybody knew it was Hitler’s birthday."

  • Kosovo Media Coverage

    We now move from violence at home to violence abroad, for a look at how the U.S. media is covering the NATO bombings of Yugoslavia. On April 7, CNN’s Bill Schneider offered this analysis of the anti-war sentiment in the U.S.: "What’s missing from the Kosovo story is anti-war protest, at least on the left." Schneider continued by saying that there was "no action out there on the streets or on campuses–no marches, no demonstrations, no teach-ins."

  • Flag Desecration Constitutional Amendment

    Yesterday, Gary May, a decorated Vietnam veteran, ex-Marine and double amputee, spoke before a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to the proposed Flag Protection Constitution Amendment. The amendment would allow for the prosecution of people who desecrate the American flag.
