Dozens Of Police Break Up Brawl At Church

Really now.

A dispute over leadership at a Henderson County church has turned from angry words to fist fights.

 

About 30 police officers from five agencies were called to break up fights Sunday at Greater New Zion Baptist Church in Fletcher.

30 policemen? how sad.

do you think they’d think twice about sending the MLS cohort?

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Association is grumbling about the decision to send the school’s basketball players, staff and some guests on a trip to Italy next month.

The association – the same organization that backed a $25 per student per semester fee to raise money to renovate the Klotsche Center or build a new arena – argues this is no time to be heading overseas while the Athletic Department has a deficit as high as $8 million.

The trip is expected to cost $160,000.

mmmm only $160,000. What in the world is going on here? I’m not even a student at UWM and this irritates me.

Syria bans face veils at universities

Absolutely amazing. In an effort to ward off religious extremism, Syria has banned the niqab for teachers and students in the university classroom.

My thoughts here are two-fold. Will this be a freeing experience for women as they shed their niqabs for the classroom or will these women stall or stop their educations as they deal with religious life vs the secular one.
