ATHENS, GA - With truant payments on the rise, millions of American grandchildren are being left seriously undergifted, officials say.

They're the students who go abroad to boost their CVs, have a laugh - and help out in the developing world at the same time. But this week a charity claimed that young people on gap-year trips risk doing more harm than good.

Buoyed by three A-levels and a place at university, Jonty and Bunty and a quarter of a million of their mates set out to save the world. First they went climbing in Kathmandu. Then they stumbled into a local school and taught English to baffled Nepalese. Fifty spliffs and a thousand emails later, they returned home with a Hindu charm and tie-dye trousers. They had lots of great stories but the world remained thoroughly unsaved.

Press 3 for the destruction of America's most important national 'glue' if we lose our country's language: English!

Nothing irritates Americans more in our country than being forced to choose between our English language and Mexican Spanish being forced upon us by millions of illegals. We suffer becoming second class citizens in our own country. Our language takes a back seat to a foreign language by foreigners that don't respect us enough to learn English. Additionally, it allows millions of others to maintain their languages in our country without honoring our society.

In the most ethnically diverse county in the nation, Independence Day is celebrated again and again and again.

In Astoria, American flags are often seen, and Greek ones, too (Independence Day March 25). Across Queens, March 26 is Bangladesh's turn. Many immigrants welcome July 4 as a day to share one identity. Independence Day is celebrated once a year in most of America. In Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the nation, where an estimated 44 percent of the 2.2 million residents are foreign born, it is celebrated again and again and again. But July 4 is different. It is a day that looks forward, not back.

The church may host large crowds in their worship services; they may deposit millions of dollars in their accounts; they may receive applause from politicians, but they are not confessing Christ! Why? Because they are totally absent from the field of batt

I mean totally absent! For the record, the real battlefield today is not abortion. It is not homosexual marriage. It is not Social Security. It is not al Qaeda. It is not taxes. It is not inflation. It is not electing conservatives. It is not posting the Ten Commandments. That is not to say that those issues are not important and not deserving of our best efforts and attention. We have fought and continue to fight for those issues. But those issues do not represent the major battlefield today.

WASHINGTON - If and when the Secret Service visits the offices of Living Waters Ministry in Southern California to collect more "counterfeiting evidence" in the form of gospel tracts disguised as $1 million bills, agents better be armed with a warrant.

Ray Comfort, the world-renowned evangelist and head of the ministry, says he is not inclined to turn over any more copies of one of his most effective tools for witnessing his faith just because some Treasury agents demand them.

Germany is anxious about next month's World Cup soccer tournament -- in both senses of the word. The country is thrilled to host one of the most coveted sports events on the planet. Who wouldn't be?

Not surprisingly, security is a top priority for the German government, even higher than its desire to see the national team walk off the pitch with the World Cup 2006 trophy. The list of security precautions the government is taking is substantial. It begins with the use of RFID (radio frequency identification) technology. More than 3.5 million tickets for the 64 matches will be sold with an embedded RFID chip containing identification information that will be checked against a database as fans pass through entrance gates at all 12 stadiums.
