News Item: “. . . South Carolina is one of only two U.S. states (the other is Mississippi) still to fly the Confederate flag in an official capacity. . . .”
Good. We should always encourage truth in labeling.
It is the way we know which cereals to avoid because of sugar, which baked goods to avoid because of gluten and which states to avoid because of nuts.
News Headline: “House panel approves massive Pentagon spending bill.”
News Headline: “Terrorists team up in Syria to build next generation of bombs.”

News Item: “. . . Team USA will progress if they lose by one and Ghana win by one, but the United States keep their goals-scored tally higher than Ghana (i.e., Team USA lose 1-2; Ghana win 1-0). Team USA progress if Ghana win 1-0, the United States lose 1-0. Both end on goal difference of zero, so goals scored would apply—but again the teams are tied. Team USA progress on account of a better head-to-head result. Team USA go out on goal difference if Ghana win by more than one and the United States lose by one (or more) or if Ghana win by one and Team USA lose by more than one. . . .”

News Headline: “Cheney’s tough talk on Iraq.”
We should listen here.
When former Vice President Dick Cheney talks about war, he doesn’t do it lightly.
He is aware of its many sacrifices.
Which is why he arranged five draft deferments to stay out of it.
