Billboards that look back

Technology has now given advertisers the ability to gather information about those looking at their billboards. Some new ad boards come equipped with tiny cameras that can gather details about passers-by—their gender, approximate age and even how long they looked at the billboard. The surveillance data is transmitted to a central database for marketing purposes.

Keep your shades on and your eyes on the road.

Arizona’s contestants in the national Spelling Bee

May 31, 2008

Twelve-year-old master speller, So-Young Iris Chung misspelled a word that took her out of the semi-finals in the national competition, but she nonetheless won our hearts. Who among us could spell “Chrysoprase,” much less know it’s meaning?

The graceful Terramar elementary student from Peoria, AZ , refused to cry at her loss, saying, “I don’t cry in public.”

Eliminated the previous day was Arizona’s other participant, Natasha Begay, 14, from the Navajo Nation community of Lukachukai who misspelled “criterion.”

The contest winner is Sameer Mishra, 13, of West Lafayette Indiana. He won $35,000 in cash and more than $5,000 in other prizes.

National media mum on Boy Scouts

Scouts fighting what amounts to an attempt at extortion by the City of Brotherly Love

Robert Knight, writing for Townhall, has written a compelling piece titled, Media Shove Boy Scout story under a tent. We highly recommend it.

Seeing Red AZ first covered Philadelphia’s appeasement of homosexual activists at the expense of the Boy Scouts of America in October of 2007.

Another discontented spouse hires undercover cop for hit

May 31, 2008

Seems divorce might be a better plan

Not to make light of a serious situation, but why do those who attempt to hire a killer always manage to contact an undercover officer instead?

It used to be Jack Ballentine, a now-retired Phoenix police officer who gained legendary status by playing a hit man for hire. In the role of that character he was instrumental in the 100 percent conviction rate of 24 would-be killers.

“It’s surprising, there is a lot more (demand) than you would expect,” he said. “I did four or five a year over a 15-year period,” Ballentine was quoted as saying.

Obama’s OTHER pastor problem

 Could they working to undermine him?

Another radical racist takes the pulpit at Barack Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ —but this one is a liberal extremist, White priest!

Update:  National Review’s The Corner carries the statement of Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago, rebuking Father Michael Pfleger’s theatrical performance and ridicule of Sen. Hillary Clinton. It is available here.

Splendid job, Archbishop!

Bob Dole hangs Scott McClellan out to dry

May 30, 2008

Feisty WWII vet still takes ‘em on

Former GOP Presidential candidate and U. S. Senator, Bob Dole has sent a scalding email to Scott McClellan, excoriating the former White House spokesman as a “miserable creature” who greedily betrayed his former patron for a fast buck. Jonathan Martin of Politico shares the message.

Judicial selection: The heart of the presidential election

May 30, 2008

Linda Chavez, writing for Human Events,  provides a thoughtful commentary on the overarching importance of judicial selection.

She writes: Barack Obama set out his criteria for picking judges this way. “We need somebody who’s got the heart … the empathy to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old. And that’s going to be the criteria by which I’m going to be selecting my judges.

Hillary Clinton’s list was a little more substantive than Obama’s. She told attendees to a 2007 Planned Parenthood convention that she would pick judges who “understand the role of precedent,” by which she meant Roe v. Wade.

Kansas City Archbishop censured for adhering to Church doctrine

May 30, 2008

Errant Catholic governor on Obama’s VP short-list becomes untouchable

Recently, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann publicly asked Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to refrain from going to Communion. Sebelius not only supports abortion-on-demand, and works closely with Planned Parenthood, she has received funding from Dr. George Tiller of Wichita. He is nationally known for performing late-term abortions.

 Over the past few weeks, Archbishop Naumann has been roundly criticized for his laudable decision as the liberal forces supporting Sebelius for Obama’s Vice Presidential nominee, protectively circle the wagons.

 The brief but powerful article from The Catholic League, which is defending the Archbishop, is available here.
