Supporters of Arizona Immigration Law

The new Arizona law requires police to check whether a person is in the United States legally, if there is a reason to suspect he or she isn't. Critics say it could foster racial profiling, but get closer to the border and you'll find many supporters, some loud and angry – who say this law will save American lives.

Dealing with a disaster

New Jersey Principal: Say NO to Facebook
Middle school principal, Anthony Orsini sent an email to parents asking them to voluntarily join a ban on social networking sites. Orsini says in his email: "There is absolutely no reason for any middle school student to be a part of a social networking site!" and cites bullying as the major danger posed by Facebook and MySpace. So far, parents seem to agree.

It has been said by a number of well known people that to ignore the past is to threaten your future. How do we, as a nation, correct problems without understanding the ethnic background of a people? Did we learn anything from World War II or the Civil War or othe rmajor issues that have shaped our country?
