+Jey Wright Some years back, in a major city to remain nameless,  (which provided promotional advantages to women, blacks, Hispanics and native Americans over whites) a spokePERSON for the equivalent of the agency's African American Association flew into a rage when one of its members was denied promotion to Lieutenant. Then, after asking why, he/she was told that the Department had already met its carefully controlled and overseen quota of black lieutenants.
The "chickens had come home to roost."
Answer me this riddle, Jey: Should organizations hire, promote and otherwise provide advantage to ANYONE based upon their GROUP's percentage of the national, it's state or local community's population? For example: Should a place like New York City hire "gays" based on the number of same living across America, New York State, New York City...OR perhaps, instead, San Francisco or Providence, RI???
And PLEAZZZZE, spare me the insulting gesture that I or anyone else living in 2014 owes anything at all to the descendants of a near 150 year old dead policy, for which a half-million white guys died during the Civil War.

Globe Theater to bring 'Hamlet' to 200 nations

+The Associated Press William Shakespeare's Globe theater in London has announced plans to test the Bard's maxim that "all the world's a stage" by taking "Hamlet" to every country on Earth, more than 200 in all.
"Hamlet" opens Wednesday — on Shakespeare's 450th birthday — with the first of three performances at the Globe, a reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse beside the River Thames.
Then the cast of 12 and its four-person crew will board a schooner for Amsterdam, beginning a journey that will take them to seven continents by plane, boat, train, bus and jeep.

US may cut force in Afghanistan to less than 10,000 troops

+Reuters The number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan may drop well below 10,000 - the minimum demanded by the U.S. military to train Afghan forces - as the longest war in American history winds down, Obama administration officials briefed on the matter say.

Since Afghanistan's general election on April 5, White House, State Department and Pentagon officials have resumed discussions on how many American troops should remain after the current U.S.-led coalition ends its mission this year.

The decision to consider a small force, possibly less than 5,000 U.S. troops, reflects a belief among White House officials that Afghan security forces have evolved into a robust enough force to contain a still-potent Taliban-led insurgency.
