August 1 2006 Civil Rights Newsletter

Thank you for subscribing to the Civil Rights Newsletter published by BellaOnline´s Civil Rights area (the well-known corner of the web where EVERYONE can discuss civil rights civilly, where EVERYONE can find resources and links to articles and sites that deal with cutting edge civil rights issues in many areas of daily living, and where EVERYONE is a member of a family where (wo)men can discuss hot topics of the day without having to worry that it is “off limits” in polite company)!

What‘s New?

Once again we firmly have our finger posted on the national pulse. In Should Flag Burning Be Outlawed? we are amazed by the attempts to legislate intelligence and use the United States Constitution in the process.

Civil Rights Trivia Game

Last time we asked the question: Can you name three United States presidents who were assassinated while in office?
The Answer: Presidents Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy.
We have a winner! Congratulations once again to Marianne Kinney who answered correctly! Who knows, you might be the winner this time!

If you know the answer, please e-mail me. All who answer correctly will see their names published in the next newsletter. (Sorry, no other tangible prizes yet!)

Here goes: Can you name the United States Presidents on whose lives assassination attempts were made that failed?

Civil Rights News You Can Use

In the old days, war memorials usually featured a cross. Then one day someone found the time to be offended. In an effort to re-write the history of this country that once saluted its war-dead with the installation of a gigantic cross, the movement is now afoot to eradicate these gestures of national grief. One case in point is the San Diego cross that was originally intended to be a war memorial for Korean War veterans. Read and be amazed ... San Diego cross may provide national legal test.
