Kidnapping an unborn child?

Monday, November 29th, 2004

I had always thought there was only one type of kidnapping in the world. A living person is taken by another person for some sort of gain. Apparently, I was wrong.

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Police said Tuesday they have arrested a woman in the abduction of an unborn baby who was cut from its mother’s […]

Stem cells allow woman to walk again

Monday, November 29th, 2004

The report coming from Medical News Today is beyond amazing.

A team of Korean researchers claimed Thursday they had performed a miracle by enabling a patient, who could not even stand up for the last 19 years, to walk with stem cell therapy.

During a press conference, the scientists said they had last month transplanted multi-potent stem […]

The 2004 Weblog Awards are gearing up! artitumis.com was nominated in several categories (by me, shameless, huh?). Finalists in each category should come in the next copule of days. If you enjoy reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing it, keep your fingers crossed for a finalist nod. If we get that far, […]

More weapons found

Thursday, November 25th, 2004

The AP has got a great piece out on the most recent weapons find in Fallujah.

FALLUJAH, Iraq - U.S. Marine officers said Wednesday that U.S. and Iraqi troops sweeping Fallujah have uncovered enough weapons to fuel a nationwide rebellion and that clearing the former insurgent bastion of arms is holding up the return of civilians.

When […]

No news good news?

Thursday, November 25th, 2004

Since the election, I haven’t found too many things really worth looking at. I am by no means burned out on the blog as I really love having a forum for my thoughts and comments back on them. It just seems nothing is really worth talking at much length about.

Sure there has been news. Rather […]

Marines and Fallujah

Saturday, November 20th, 2004

I have been trying for days to write something about the Marine situation in Fallujah, Iraq. My personal feelings about what happen and how it was reported can be summed up in one word; pissed.

Oliver North wrote an article about what really happen. The article is too long to quote here, but you do need […]

Don’t bring your rifle to work, please

Thursday, November 18th, 2004

This is just beyond funny.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - Employees at a Little Rock office building have been asked to leave their deer hunting rifles at home because the president and three former presidents are coming to town to open Bill Clinton’s presidential library.

Being from Arkansas, I can tell you that when the article goes […]

More must read

Wednesday, November 17th, 2004

I am very glad the Marine wrote this and sent it off. Semper Fi my brother, who ever and where ever you are.

Must read

Wednesday, November 17th, 2004

A friend of mine wrote this a few days ago and it really hit home to me. I would like all of you to take a look at it. This Marine Corporal is a great person.

Sara, I along with the rest of us back home are praying for you.

Resignations

Monday, November 15th, 2004

Many of Bush’s Cabinet members have resigned since the election. I haven’t seen many, if any, claims from the left that they resigned because they were unhappy with the way things happened during the first term. I’m actually surprised I haven’t seen it.

The top secretary to resign so far is Secretary of State Powell who […]

Further thoughts

Friday, November 12th, 2004

These are just my thoughts. There really isn’t any proof behind what I am thinking but it makes for an interesting read. Maybe I will write a book that follows this particular plot line or something.

Earlier in the week as I was reading about the Peterson case, a couple things started to stick out in […]

The verdict in Scott Peterson’s double murder case is set to be given at 4 EST this afternoon. The entire week has been drama in the case as the judge dismissed the jury forman and another juror on back to back days. This sounded like a great way to give reasons for an appeal […]
