"On March 14, Bob and Nancy Strait were the victims of a brutal home invasion; Bob, 90, was shot in the face and brutally beaten, and remains in serious condition. His wife, Nancy, 85, was battered and sexually assaulted, and died of her injuries.
The couple met on a blind date after Bob finished serving in World War II. They married a month later, and their romance lasted 65 years. “Dad never talked, and Mama never quit talking,” their daughter Lanora said.
The Straits’ attack has gotten little play in the mainstream media, but now comedy group RangerUpVideo is asking in a heartfelt video that Americans — and Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert — help publicize the case, and make sure justice is served. Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork on a first-degree murder charge, but police believe three or four other assailants were involved.
“This investigation is far from over,” said Officer Jason Willingham, of the Tulsa police department. “We’ve still got a lot of questions that we still need answered.”
"As if it weren’t enough that North Carolina already doesn’t recognize same-sex unions, the state votes next Tuesday on a ballot measure that reads: “Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized by this State.”
This ad campaign, by Winston-Salem agency The Variable, plays on segregation-era discrimination to shock voters into voting down the offensive legislation, called Amendment 1: “On May 8th, make history. Don’t repeat it.”
ahhh yee! Obama 2012!
"Dan Rather joined George Stephanopoulos today on Good Morning America, where he doubled down on the 60 Minutes story in which he asserted that George W. Bush had deserted the Texas Air National Guard, and which got him fired from the network.
“We reported a true story. I am not at CBS now because I and my team reported a true story. It was a tough story, a story a lot of people didn’t want to believe and it was subjected to a terrific propaganda barrage to discredit it.”
Stephanopoulos asked Rather whether it was possible to know the entire truth without all of the documents.
“No, what story does anyone know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?. But we reported the truth and that is that President Bush — later President Bush — when he was in National Guard service, he was at least AWOL and we had a top general in the Army saying on the record he was a deserter. Now everybody makes mistakes. I made some, President Bush obviously made some. But because we reported that story, they put heavy pressure on the corporate entity and the corporate entity voted.”
The disgraced journalist and former CBS Evening News anchor’s new book, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News, goes on sale Tuesday.”
