Over the weekend, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez appeared to bite – yes bite – Chelsea defender Branislave Ivanovic while the pair were engaged in front of the goal mouth. Needless to say, that’s not exactly normal soccer behavior. His punishment has yet to be announced; but I think it’s safe to say a suspensions is surely in his future. But there is an upside to all of this for the controversial striker. He’s picked up a new Twitter follower – yes, you guessed it. Iron Mike Tyson.
The FBI revealed photos and video of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects Thursday afternoon in a plea for help from the American public to help identify the two individuals thought to have played a role in the bombing. FBI lead investigator, Richard DesLauriers, unveiled photos and video of two men carrying backpacks in close proximity to the crime scenes. He went on to say that suspect number two – the one in the white hat was seen placing what they believe to be a bomb at the scene.
Letters addressed to President Obama and at least one lawmaker laced with the toxin ricin were intercepted before delivery according to procedures put in place after the Anthrax scare that followed 9/11 back in 2001. The timing in relation to the Boston Marathon bombing raises fears that we may be facing a copycat of the 2001 Anthrax threat that followed 9/11.
Mayor Bloomberg: Soda Ban Like Drinking and Driving, Asbestos in Classrooms, Guns on Planes Prohibitions
New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg made an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday to respond to a recent judicial ruling striking down his “soda ban” as “arbitrary and capricious.” “I do not think we should ban most things. I do think we there are times when we should infringe upon your freedoms. For instance, when you’re drinking, we shouldn’t let you drive. Uhhh. If you’re carrying a gun, we shouldn’t let you on an airplane.
In a video posted online by the Human Rights Campaign Monday, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she now supports marriage equality and sees the matter as a human rights issue – “I believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being.” Secretary Clinton had previously taken the position that civil unions were a viable alternative and that defining marriage should be left to states. Her public reversal comes just days after her husband, Former President Bill Clinton, announced his own reversal in an op-ed calling for DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) – which he signed into law – to be overturned.
When I first saw the endless array of headlines related to Ohio Senator Rob Portman’s public announcement that he’s changed his position on same sex marriage, I immediately assumed the Left must be driving the conversation. Every headline mentioned Portman’s son “coming out” as if that was the driving issue (or excuse) behind the reversal.

Because North Korea seems to threaten an attack on the US or its interests on a daily basis, news that the rogue regime Thursday threatened to launch a “preemptive nuclear attack” on the US mainland is largely going unreported. While intelligence officials are confident that North Korea does not possess an arsenal capable of attacking the US mainland, it is somewhat alarming how far the latest threat was willing to go
