LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.

Perhaps the so-called “little things” are aligned.
I don’t normally agree with Bill Richardson, but I do here (Aug. 21). It’s very unfortunate that these dedicated men lost their lives doing their job but it happens every day in some occupation. They took the job knowing the possible risks. Do we afford the families of our brave troops who lost their lives in their government service the advantages of hundreds of thousands of dollars plus lifetime payments for the families? I don’t think so. Their deaths were half way around the world and not near Prescott. They didn’t have the daily “hero” hype of the local press. I’m not diminishing the impact of their deaths but we need to put fairness in perspective. I think the media has provoked this claim for more money. We need to move on and consider ways this doesn’t happen again.

Go back 46 years to the 1967 Boston Marathon, when Katharine Switzer’s race was nearly interrupted when race official Jock Semple tried to pull her off the course (her boyfriend literally body checked him out of the way).
“I often learn something new from The Vent, such as it’s the wacko environmentalists that bring the lighting that starts the fires. And of course the wacko environmentalists cause it to not rain. I always thought that was the Jesus guy. Guess i have to change my contributions to “our lady of Sierra Club” and start praying in the direction of San Francisco.”

“Every year it is the same thing. We watch while our state burns, the only thing that changes is the location! When will the environmentalist wackos be arrested and put in jail where they belong. They impede any effort to clean up the forest. They get their lefty judges to erect roadblocks for the least attempt! Just think how much forest would still be here if it had been cleaned up. Now nineteen brave firefighters have paid with their lives! Thanks environmentalists!”
