After days of officials at the highest levels of the Obama administration repeatedly telling Americans the deadly Middle East embassy attacks were nothing more than Muslim demonstrations against a little known and less seen YouTube video, this same Obama administration is now quietly admitting the attack in Libya was in fact the act of terrorists.
Either the Obama White House is incapable of truth, or incapable of competence.
Perhaps it is both…
But they are so spooked and confused over the polling data, they released it sooner. That means the Middle East situation has them afraid. People are actually asking some questions now. Sniffing around the situation just a bit. And if they get somebody in the military…somebody like that…to go on the record with this…with whatever had that ambassador acting so strangely right before he was killed…well-well-well…” -WHI
Danny Webber, a terminally ill 74-year-old man from the Indianapolis area, has asked for and received a simple last wish: Tickets to this Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Webber, who is suffering from prostate cancer that has spread to his lungs and spleen, will attend the game at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium through Heritage House, the senior community where he lives in Greensburg, Ind. Heritage House's dietary manager got the tickets through people she knows at a local bank.
Webber was able to speak with Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star about what the game would mean to him.
"This one will be very special …" Webber said in a Thursday phone interview.
His voice cracked with emotion as he tried to finish the sentence.
"… because this will be the last one I ever see."
The Colts were told of Webber's wish on Friday, and they quickly moved to make his experience better. He will not sit in the 500 level as was originally planned -- now, he will have pregame sideline access and VIP status in the club lounge. Webber and his companions will also have some of the best seats in the house for the game.
"He's one of the first dreams we're helping to fulfill," said Heritage House activity director Myranda Hartwell, who will attend the game with Webber. "You can see how much better it makes him feel."
Hartwell said that Webber is one of the staff's favorite residents.
"He's an amazing guy," Hartwell told Yahoo Sports' Eric Adelson. "I was on vacation when he came in. You have to meet this guy. You walk into his room and you can tell he's a gentle, loving soul. He's a kid at heart. He's always been a people person. He's a veteran. Always wanted to help people."
Webber has been a Colts fan since the 1950s, back to the organization's Baltimore days, and he would love to get an Andrew Luck autograph. Somehow, we think the Colts organization will come through on that request.
Throughout Australia, a tiny wasp stings and paralyzes redback spiders before laying an egg that develops into a larva and slowly devours the dangerous arachnids, Australian researchers have announced.
The find is good news for Australians watching out for the redbacks, a type of spider whose bite can potentially be lethal.
The wasp was first described scientifically in 1775 by a Danish entomologist, thanks to samples collected in 1768 in Australia by Captain James Cook. But since then, "scientists have largely forgotten about the wasp," said professor Andy Austin, a researcher at Australia's University of Adelaide, in a statement.

A killer beehive over 4 feet tall was discovered by Mary Owens in Richardson, Texas. Experts believe the hive had been in the making for the past 7 months and contained, 30 pounds of honey and 500,000 Africanized bees. Because the hybrid bees are known for aggressive attacks, the hive was removed in the interest of public safety. Kyle Lieb, a beekeeper with Little Giant Beekeepers took on the dangerous removal job. Lieb said, “Unfortunately we have to exterminate them because no beekeeper…will take them. They’re just more aggressive and…obviously we don’t want them to continue to spread. If they do attack someone, they attack in large numbers.”
David Limbaugh... So what about the Democrats' would-be tempest about Mitt Romney's alleged 47 percent gaffe? Is there any "there" there?
It's purely logical; you aren't going to entice those who aren't paying taxes with promises of lower taxes ... The statement was hardly shocking or unique... In fact, the adage is so common we don't know for sure where it originated. I've heard it attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville, Thomas Jefferson and others.
My quibbles with Romney's comments are that the percentage of people not paying income taxes is closer to 49.5, and many in that group haven't given up and are striving toward upward mobility. Some are there because of legitimate deductions or earned benefits.
What concerned me the most, though, was Mitt's statement that his main task is to reach that 10 percent in the middle. I know this is conventional wisdom among political strategists, but I believe that this election will turn more on voter intensity than on swaying this inscrutable group of so-called centrists.
As such, like others, I see this as an opportunity for Mitt to make this a defining moment to contrast his policies with Obama's promises of indefinite malaise. He must articulate conservative principles unapologetically and inspire voters with the uplifting message that pro-growth policies benefit all income groups as history has shown. He must make clear that he is wooing, rather than writing off, lower-income groups -- stressing that he is determined to greatly shrink the 49 percent as people use their God-given liberty to climb the ladder toward prosperity.
Please, Mr. Romney, take your foot off the brake and the gloves off your hands and make your case with passion. That's how you'll ensure your victory -- and America's... Continued
