    Watch where you step or you might walk into a photobomb beat down. Three people in Denver face charges for beating a man unconscious after he stepped into frame for one of their photos, authorities said. The unidentified victim, 30, suffered facial damage, intracranial hemorrhaging and permanent blindness in his right eye, reported The Denver Channel. In the early morning hours of May 11, that man accidentally stepped into the shot outside a bar and infuriated Bryanna Warren, 25, who started arguing with and pushing the man, according to an arrest affidavit. He pushed back to get Warren off him...

    Protests at The New School, where a student uprising over the leadership of the university’s president, Bob Kerrey, led to clashes with the police and at least one arrest on Thursday morning, took another wild turn later on Thursday evening. A little after 11:30 p.m., Mr. Kerrey emerged from a university building on Fifth Avenue south of 14th Street to a sea of a few hundred protesters chanting for his resignation. As Mr. Kerrey walked down Fifth Avenue toward 12th Street, about 30 protesters began following him, some of them shouting insults. As the crowd’s pace quickened, so did Mr....

    When Barack Obama takes the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2009, he will do so in the 30th anniversary year of the founding of the so-called Religious Right. Born in 1979 and midwifed by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, the Religious Right was a reincarnation of previous religious-social movements that sought moral improvement through legislation and court rulings. Those earlier movements—from abolition (successful) to Prohibition (unsuccessful)—had mixed results. Social movements that relied mainly on political power to enforce a conservative moral code weren't anywhere near as successful as those that focused on changing hearts. The four religious revivals, from...

    Hey Hillary, what’s that big mark on your ear? It looks like $950,000 for a school that your favorite fundraiser just happens to have been a board member of. And in the case of the New School in Greenwich Village, it turned out to have some national resonance: Norman Hsu, a major Democratic donor active in Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign and a New School trustee, was found to be a fugitive who had skipped out after a felony theft conviction in California 15 years ago. Here’s the bill, S.1710. It’s the Labor/HHS/Education spending bill that’s being debated in...

    Hsu Linked to Past Clinton Scandal Donor By Fred Lucas September 14, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - Norman Hsu's donations to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign have brought comparisons but no direct connections to the 1990s "Chinagate" scandal. But before Hsu made headlines as a fugitive fundraiser late last month (he's now in custody in California for a 1991 grand theft conviction), he served on a board with another key figure in the earlier fundraising scandal. For more than a year, Hsu was a member of the board for the New School University in New York, where he worked with Bernard L. Schwartz....

    JOHN McCAIN IS, without a doubt, heroic.Disagree with his politics, mistrust his shifting political alliances, but no one who's benefited from the tortured sacrifices he made at the Hanoi Hilton should question his integrity. How can we, whole in body and strangers to the hell he experienced, challenge this patriot? To do so indicates a fundamental inhumanity.That aptly describes the young woman who stood up last week and ridiculed the senator from Arizona. Jean Sara Rohe, a graduating senior at the New School in New York, introduced McCain before he delivered his commencement address.Ms. Rohe took the opportunity to attack...

    This week, the world gasped in awe at the raw heroism of Jean Rohe, the student at the New School who gave a speech attacking the commencement speaker, Republican Sen. John McCain, at the commencement ceremony. We mostly heard about Rohe's bravery from Rohe – and, really, who is in a better position to judge? As Rohe herself put it: "If there's one thing that I know about myself, it is that I care for people, and in that sense I have a great deal of character." According to her posted biography, Rohe "grew up singing and performing folk music...

    A New School student apologized to Sen. John McCain for hijacking his commencement address, but said her controversial speech was "what my conscience called for." "I said, 'I'm really sorry I had to do that.' And he said, 'Oh, it's all right, I understand,'" Jean Sara Rohe told the Daily News yesterday. Rohe, 21, said she was unprepared for the angry response she got from McCain's camp after she spoke out against his support of the Iraq war and her fellow graduates heckled and booed him. The Republican senator from Arizona, who is widely expected to make a bid for...

    NEW YORK -- Arizona Sen. John McCain received a cantankerous reception during his appearance at the New School commencement Friday, where dozens of faculty members and students turned their backs and raised signs in protest and a distinguished student speaker pointedly mocked him as he sat silently nearby. The historically liberal university has been roiled in controversy in recent weeks over the selection of McCain, a conservative Republican and likely 2008 presidential candidate, to deliver the commencement address. Some 1,200 students and faculty signed petitions asking the university president, former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, to rescind the invitation. Petitioners said...

    ...a beautiful prose poem to America, national service, and civil debate (congrats Mark Salter, as ever), and gets derided for it, of course. “I supported the war in Iraq.” Boos. Explains the war was not for cheap oil. A little heckling: “You're full of it!” Says he thought the “country's interest and values demanded” the war. Someone shouts: “Wrongly!” Someone else: “More poetry!” (A reference to lines from Yeats McCain had quoted earlier.) He says “whether [the war] was necessary or not...we all should shed a tear” for those who have sacrificed in it. Some hissing. Shouting. He eventually enters...

    The Arizona Republican is scheduled to address Columbia University's "Class Day" next Tuesday, and will speak at the commencement ceremonies of the New School three days later. Known for his independence and maverick streak, McCain has been burnishing his conservative credentials in recent months as he readies a likely 2008 presidential bid. He'll deliver the commencement address at the Rev. Jerry Falwell's Liberty University on Saturday - an opportunity he described yesterday as "an honor." At the New School, a left-leaning university of some 8,000 students now headed by former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, organizers announced yesterday they had collected...

    NEW YORK -- U.S. Sen. John McCain is set to deliver commencement speeches at two New York universities next week -- and that's drawing fire from campus activists who oppose his conservative views and support for the Iraq war. The potential Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to address Columbia's "Class Day" on May 16 and will speak at commencement ceremonies at the New School three days later. At the New School, there's a petition asking that McCain be disinvited from commencement ceremonies. A protest leader said the senator's stands on abortion and gay rights don't reflect the values of the...

    As is often the case these days, offensive language or behavior is in the eye of the beholder. It depends on whether one subscribes to old school or new-age definitions of words that have been around for centuries. This word discrimination used to be a compliment of sorts, as in “one has discriminating tastes” based on the old school definition “To make a clear distinction; distinguish: discriminate among the options available. To make sensible decisions; judge wisely.” Of course the new-age definition is much less flattering, “to treat one person or group worse than others or better than others, usually...

    Protestors yelling, "War criminal!" and "Murderer!" were the first to be dragged out of the auditorium at the New School this afternoon, after being given repeated warnings to stop disrupting Jeffrey Goldberg's interview of the Deputy Secretary of Defense.Although the majority of the audience seemed to be sympathetic to Wolfowitz, shouts of "Go home!" and "Resign!" and "Oil!" continued to partly drown out the speakers. Then a very big, buff personage in a tank top and a ponytail alarmed the security staff the most, as he ran up the left-hand aisle toward the stage, angrily shouting and menacing the Secretary....
