The boys were thought of as thugs. Girls, on the other hand, were seen as helpless victims.

The late drug baron had a herd of the animals, which are now out of control in Colombia. Just what do you do with 60 hippos?

I bet the next story will be able the political struggle to find away to blame teachers for this…
Linda Darling-Hammond writes that the 'teaching gap' is real and significant.

This certainly ups the ante for government contract abuse: start with basic non-performance and fraud, add reckless violence and abuse, and escalate to threatening to assassinate State Department investigators — and it worked!

The really disappointing part: the only person facing imminent jail time is the reporter who wrote this story. The Obama administration has made a special effort to put him in jail for protecting his sources.
Not long after the security firm’s top manager in Iraq told a State Department investigator “that he could kill” him, the inquiry was abandoned. Weeks later, the firm’s guards killed 17 civilians in Iraq.

+Robert Kubarych The part I don't yet understand is why Obama went along with covering up so much dirty laundry – it's not like doing so has bought much (any?) Republican cooperation so unless there's some background quid pro quo we don't know about it seems like a rather huge mistake.

“Eleven years ago, in response to a terrorist attack by a group of anti-American religious fanatics, the United States invaded an Arab country with hardly any jihadis, or very few of them, to overthrow a secular dictator. Today, with much blood and money having been spent, northern and western Iraq is full of jihadis, and the U.S. government is figuring out how to prevent them from overrunning the rest of the country”

If there's anything good to come of this it will be hastening the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws by associating them with paranoid racists

Good pizza and location but we sharply reduced our visits when they banned dogs from the patio

Great beer and food; if only the location was more metro-accessible…

The ingredients are obviously top notch but I rarely stop by because the recipes are so bland. This can work with something like gazpacho where all of the flavor comes from really fresh ingredients but otherwise double the spice!
