    President of children's charity tried to meet 14-year-old for sex in San Francisco, police say

    The president of a Vallejo children's charity who arranged to meet a 14-year-old girl for sexual contact in San Francisco was met instead by police, officials say.

    Rick Steves Fascism: A Free ScreeningEdmonds Center for the Arts Wednesday, Oct. 17, 7pm My new documentary about fascism in Europe is debuting now across the USA on public TV — and I'm hosting a free screening in Edmonds.

    Oklahoma Police Chief Resigns Over Neo-Nazi Ties, Gets Job in Neighboring Police Force

    Bart Alsbrook resigned as interim police chief of an Oklahoma town late last August, after he was revealed as the former leader of a neo-Nazi group. One year later, he has a job at a different police department 15 miles away. Alsbrook, 50, is the former Texas coordinator of Blood & Honour USA, a racist skinhead group with neo-Nazi ties. He also ran a pair of neo-Nazi video and music companies and a skinhead website glorifying pictures of racist beatdowns, and was charged with the attempted murder of another skinhead—but had his case dropped when the alleged victim refused to testify. Those ties came to light when Alsbrook was named interim police chief of Colbert, Oklahoma last year, leading

    1 Confederate grave: Relatives of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest are demanding $30 million from the city of Memphis and a nonprofit to move his remains from a Tennessee park and settle a lawsuit over the takedown of a statue of the former Ku Klux Klan leader.

But Forrest's remains are still buried at the park. A letter filed in a Nashville court said Forrest's relatives want $5.6

    To the editor: Any activity by pro-Palestinian advocates and the so-called boycott, divestment and sanctions movement that makes pro-Israel Jewish students uncomfortable to the point they are afraid to exercise their freedom to advocate for Israel is discriminatory, anti-Semitic and a violation of those Jewish students' right of free speech.
