Hopefully this will help to kill off presidential "debates". They're useless, made for TV events anyway.

@4, I think you miss that the sign refers to the whipping post that was located on the northeast corner of the courthouse lawn and the sign is therefore located on the northeast corner. So I don't think the sign was placed there - near the garbage cans - to be hidden from view. Also, for many years, when the building functioned as the Circuit Courthouse, the backside was the main entrance. The front entrance was sealed off.

Right after this story aired there was an NPR news segment with Boehner saying how the health care reform law will destroy the "greatest health care system in the world." Pshaw.

Those may have been the national stances of the communist party but all politics is local. In their local stronghold of West Bengal the communist controlled government pushed for the take over of cropland for industrial plants. This allowed other parties to take up the old communist issues and boot the CPI(M) out of office. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/80…
