It took 561 years (from the Magna Carta to the Declaration of Independence) for the idea of limited government and political equality to infuse itself into Anglo-American culture.

The American Cancer Society is urgently seeking volunteer drivers willing to donate their passenger seat to transport cancer patients to and from their cancer-related treatments through the Road To Recovery program. It is simple to volunteer and free training is provided.

The Appellate Court ignored the fact that four members of the State Board of Elections opined that the judges could not stand for election and four others voted they could. Even Baricevic and Haida obviously thought they couldn't run for election to their own seats; otherwise, they wouldn't have filed for each other's vacancy.
