    Christianity Today's chief editor Mark Galli has issued embarrassed apologies for a classified ad appearing in his publication's March edition that was placed by a parent soliciting a son-in-law for a "godly, gorgeous, athletic, educated, careered, humorous, traveled, bilingual" virgin daughter. Ostensibly, the winning candidate, "unworthy but becoming less so daily," would fill an elder position at a Chicago-area church. Galli, speaking for the staff of the genteel Wheaton, Ill.-based evangelical magazine, acknowledged that the Marketplace section ad was "demeaning and in poor taste."

    PESHAWAR, Aug 18: A son-in-law of Al Qaeda No 2 Dr Ayman Al-Zawahiri is believed to be the mastermind of the plot to blow up transatlantic flights and he met one or some of the plotters at a place close to the Pakistan-Afghan border, credible sources told Dawn. “The mastermind in the planes bombing plot is Zawahiri’s son-in-law,” said the sources who did not want to be named. “He is the guy being looked for,” they added. Osama bin Laden’s top lieutenant is known to have several sons-in-law. One of them was reported to have been killed in a...

    Taiwan leader surrenders powers Mr Chen's personal popularity is at an all-time low Taiwan's President Chen Shui-bian has ceded some powers to try and deflect a political crisis caused by a corruption scandal implicating a family member.

Mr Chen's announcement comes a week after his son-in-law was detained on suspicion of illegal share trading. The case against Chao Chien-ming...
  • The Harry Reid Connection – and you thought Abramoff was bad?

    Sen. Harry Reid's famous words regarding the Abramoff scandal with Jim Lehrer's Online Hour on January 18, 2006: "Think about this, the "pay and play" program. You as a lobbyist, you pay, and we Republicans will take care of you legislatively. That's why it hasn't come to the forefront. The arrogance of power, the culture of corruption has not come to the attention of the American public as it has the past several months." And then we have this (be sure to download this, good for one day until 4pm tomorrow) that came out today produced by the Los Angeles...

    Cox spoke in Manhattan Wednesday in his first appearance before reporters since forming an exploratory committee for the 2006 U.S. Senate race. Cox, 58, a lawyer who has never run for office, criticized the Democratic incumbent for supposedly eyeing the White House in 2008. "I believe that a senator should focus less on making headlines and more on producing results," Cox said. "She parachuted into New York solely for the reason of running for the Senate, and now she's running for the presidency. She is more concerned about the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire than the priorities of people...

    HILLARY CLINTON'S reelection campaign for the United States Senate in 2006 may be tougher than expected. On Monday, May 2, the New York Observer reported that Clinton might face a challenge from Richard Nixon's son-in-law Ed Cox. Cox, who has declined to make a statement on his intentions, has made steps toward running for Clinton's New York Senate seat, including launching an exploratory committee. Associates to Cox believe that he will win the endorsement of New York Governor George Pataki. By the time Hillary Rodham married future president Bill Clinton in 1975, Ed Cox had been married to the daughter...

    <p>If it's true that a woman has to kiss many frogs before she finds her prince, then Kimberly Devlin's lips must be turning green. Recent first dates -- they usually end there -- have asked her to pay the check, have lied about owning a car, or have fibbed about their line of work. The last man who asked her out, though nice enough, was a walking billboard for his tattoo parlor and wore more earrings than the 22-year-old Devlin could count.</p>

    HOW MOM TEACHES DAUGHTER TO YELL AT DAD J. Grant Swank, Jr., POB 1984, Windham ME 04062 Pastor, New Hope Church, Windham ME It is very, very subtle — over time, involving complicated life situations, supported by fem bonding, allowing for anti-male emotions, pulling from the baser nature of the female, and so forth. Writing about this subject can be raw and refined. The refined part has to do with psychology and ethics. The raw part has to do with real life — madness, meanness, and basically lack of respect for father / husband. So let’s start with the bottom...
