Ann Coulter. The name "rings a bell," but not quite loud enough to place a face or personality with the name. Right-wing nazi. Now the bell should be deafening. Ann Coulter has made herself a celebrity with the help of remarks she has made in her four best-selling non-fiction books, columns and during her numerous appearances on political debate TV shows. Her remarks are almost always full of gall and ignorance.
Before I traipsed off to college last year, I wondered if I was meant to be a small town girl or a city kid.

So far it's been a rocky road, but I think I've gained a lot by having my world turned upside-down. To say I lived the inner-city life would be a huge exaggeration.
U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) believes Congress will address what happens next with the Guantanamo Bay prison and the detainees held there. In a 5-3 ruling, The U.S. Supreme Court said Thursday that President Bush lacked authority in ordering military trials of the prisoners held there. During a press conference with Minnesota reporters Thursday, Coleman said the prison won't be closed. But, he thinks the court's ruling is now a starting point for Congress in authorizing the prison and what happens to the prisoners. "It's clear that a new system has to be put into effect.

Proceeds from sales of the prints will be put toward DU's efforts to conserve North America's wetlands for generations to come.

If you set your mind to it, you can break 50 or 100 straight in trap shooting. After all, a hundred straight is merely four rounds done back to back. Yogi Berra once said that baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical. He could have been talking about trap shooting! If you want to shoot 50 or 100 targets in a row this season you need to balance those two elements. You must shoulder your well-fitted shotgun properly and consistently. Practice at home with an unloaded shotgun. Bring it up smoothly, point at a knot in a tree in the back yard.
Minnesota's breeding duck populations declined for the second consecutive year, according to results of the annual May waterfowl survey released by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The state's estimated breeding duck population fell to 521,000, 18 percent lower than last year and 36 percent below the 10-year average. The long-term average for total duck abundance is 630,000 breeding birds. The Canada goose count increased 12 percent to 358,000. "These are disappointing numbers," said Dave Schad, director of the DNR Division of Fish and Wildlife.
