UPDATED: This may just be the most wonderful story of 2007.
A US Solider in Iraq, a single man, meets, befriends, and finally adopts a
young Iraqi boy who has cerebral palsy and is living in an orphanage.
The Solider is Capt. Scott Southworth, and he is what being an American is all about.

And finally, this news which we first read on the Broward Blog:
The Lakota Indian tribe, who are decedents from Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, and whose territory includes Nebraska, the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming, has announced "We are no longer citizens Of the United States."
The story is HERE and the tribe announced that it would be issuing passports, driver's licenses, and that its citizens would live tax free.
Rumpole says: Sign us up. We're in.
And for all of our religious and Christian readers, we leave you with this message of peace:
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone around about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, "Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
Happy Holidays. See You Wednesday.
