The Honduras horror: Fire in prison kills hundreds

Following this story today.. Hundreds burned alive in a jail in Honduras.. the massive fire swept through the prison in Comayagua, in central Honduras. Conflicting reports are circulating about the number of people who have been killed--some say 200+ and others far outnumber that in the 300+ or higher range.
Some prisoners escaped the fire by breaking through the roof of the jail... fire fighters could not extinguish the blaze for over an hour--no word yet on what the actual cause is.. some reports say electrical issues.
What is known: Many prisoners were in their jail cells, unable to escape, and burned beyond recognition. Some inmates rioted in an attempt to escape their final demise.. media in Honduras said the riot broke out prior to the fire.
The prison held more than 800...
A developing story .. a horrible story..

Monsanto expects full compliance

Farmers found to 'be in violation' of Monstano rules.. According to the company there was a threefold increase last year in U.S. farmers caught violating requirements for planting genetically modified corn...

While these farmers had the nerve to violate the rules of the GMO game other farmers are tired of the corporate giant.. Farmers filed a a class-action suit against the multinational seed and chemical corporation Monsanto, stating they are no longer able to keep transgenic contamination out of their fields...

Watching both stories closely.. And CLOSELY watching what I eat...

A tale of two covers

timemagazine: This week, we produced an issue special to our readers in the Middle East and Northern Africa featuring the striking images of photographer Alessio Romenzi, who is even now hunkered down in the city of Homs. See the rest of his portfolio on TIME.com: http://ti.me/ygGskp Interesting choice for a cover.. good impact on readers. And if you’re in the United States, I suppose your cover will impact you just the same? … or probably not.

If watching for the erosion of freedom doesn't kill your show promoting Ron Paul will

Fans of libertarian ideas of freedom had one source of glee on Fox Business: Judge Napalitano. Until here .. Here come da judge... There goes da judge: Freedom Watch being taken off the air by Fox business

Too many people waking out of slumber? Too much support for Ron Paul? Looks like Rupert couldn't handle much more..

With the judge out not much more talk about constitutional liberties will remain--except the news organizations who proclaim the Constitution is just sooooo... Old.
