topFla. Lynching Rumors Prompt Investigation  7/27/03 AP: "Belle Galde, FL -- Not long after the family of Feraris "Ray" Golden found his dead body dangling from a tree outside his grandmother's home, ugly suspicions began to surface. Police concluded Golden committed suicide, hanging himself with a work shirt as a noose. But relatives say that's impossible; they claim the 32-year-old, who was black, was found with his hands tied behind his back."

Blood Thirsty US Forces Kill More Iraqi Civilians In Foiled Saddam Operation  7/27/03 Jihad Unspun: "Eyewitnesses have reported that in central Baghdad Sunday, US forces carried out a bloody operation in their quest for Saddam Hussein that left five civilians dead and at least others wounded. The operation, carried out by Task Force 20, a special unit the Americans have set up to hunt Saddam Hussein and his key aids, began when troops fired on passengers in two cars as they drove near a villa in the Mansour district of Baghdad which they say they believed were sheltering Saddam Hussein. The villa, owned by an influential Chieftain of over 100 tribes Rabeeah Amin, known as Prince Rabeeah, was subsequently stormed and left in a shambles."

Davis Recall On The Ballot, Next Up: Massive Vote Fraud?  7/23/03 Too Good Reports: "Those who wish to remove Davis should remember that there is no ID requirement at Californian's voting places. None. Anyone can vote, no questions asked. I've been told, off the record, that Democrat operatives dispatch SUVs around the state's 58 counties (and hundreds of polling places) and deliver illegal immigrants to "receptive" locations to vote any way they're told. There is a legal prohibition against asking an illegal if they can prove their legal status. Only the INS can do that. And in the long-shot that there is any suspect behavior, the fraudulent voter can request a provisional ballot (he/she can say their registration is "in process")."

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world. It is followed by about 33% of all people -- a percentage that has remaind stable for decades. It is expected that, if current trends continue, Islam will become the most popular religion sometime in the mid-21st century.
