Like most children with a food allergy, Natalie Giorgi was raised with a keen understanding of how careful she had to be.

At 13, she knew that her peanut allergy could be deadly, and her parents were exceedingly cautious about what she ate. "She never put any dessert or anything that was questionable into her mouth without consulting someone," said Augusta Brothers, a family friend. But Friday night, years of caution couldn't save her.

Take a moment from your regularly scheduled dose of daily optimism, and look on the dark side.

The recent political events in Greece, in which a stable government was not formed, requiring whole new rounds of voting, have received some attention on the nightly news. But there's still a feeling of "it can't happen here." That's a great disservice. Because it can happen here. And this is not just "political instability." We're not talking about a political hot potato going nuclear. We're talking about complete financial implosion. That's what happens when government is involved in everything.

Many Minnesota schools and youth-serving agencies are being asked to make significant cuts.

Is it outrageous to see a superintendent leaving a district with more than $200,000, along with medical expenses paid until he's 70- Are some teachers ineffective- Do some schools need better ways to evaluate and remove ineffective teachers- Yes, yes and yes.

Sometimes the Internet makes a mistake.

The other day, one of my favorite websites embedded a Fox News video about NSA spying. Fox News entitles their video "Citizens Treated As Suspects." At the site showcasing Fox's story, though, the headline reads: "The NSA Grabs Information from Non-Suspects; Ninety percent of those spied upon are under no suspicion." Can this be right? When you're treated as a suspect, you are a suspect, aren't you? You're being suspected of ... something. At least of being somebody who might be up to something worth snagging in an all-embracing fishing expedition. If you're not guilty, somebody else leaving comparable data traces is, surely.

The plot thickens: The latest batch of (significantly redacted!) emails released last week revealed that, not only did former EPA chief Lisa Jackson make frequent use of an alias "Richard Windsor" email account to conduct government business, but that she supplemented that account with yet another account registered with the New Jersey government from her old job.

York University in Toronto, which has gained for itself the dubious distinction of being Canada's epicenter of campus anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, is displaying once again the moral inversion that seems to have infected its student body and administr

The issue at hand is a November 16th visit to the York campus by British MP George Galloway, as the invited guest of the York Federation of Students. In 2009, Mr. Galloway had been barred from entering Canada due to his public support of and donations to Hamas, a group designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department, Canada, and the EU, but a court has since overturned that decision and given Galloway access to Canada once again. Not everyone was thrilled with the prospect of having Galloway, who, according to wry commentator Christopher Hitchens is "100 percent consistent in support for thugs and criminals," arriving on the York campus to spew forth his rabid fulminations against Zionism, Israel, and the West.

Indian Country Today

A couple years ago a family member called some of my uncles to investigate something. He informed them that while on his yearly family visit to Yosemite National Park he came across a new interpretive sign located by the Yosemite waterfalls.

He them called because he was surprised that he saw a photo of our ancestor Tom Hutchings on the new interpretive sign labeled as a Miwok. Tom Hutchings was a Mono Paiute who was the first mailman in the Yosemite Valley. Today many of Tom Hutchings descendents are situated in several Paiute tribes in California and Nevada. There are none of Tom Hutchings descendents in the Southern Sierra Miwuk tribe.

Marshall Fritz, the brilliant founder of the Separation of School and State makes it clear that when you homeschool you do not pay twice for your children's education.

You only pay one time, not two. Many public school math teachers will be confused already. Therefore, I will go slowly for those who teach math in the public schools: 1 is less than 2. The public school system was created for the state by the state. Whether or not one chooses to homeschool, one still must pay taxes to put others in a Godless, broken, education system. We might as well call it what it is however, and a public school tyranny funded by your family's taxes.
