The most disturbing part of the story is that it was completely unintentional; the reporter was just trying to give the poor guy a high five. This is some of the worst hand-eye coordination I’ve seen… and a respectable amount of restraint shown by the guy who got palmed in the face.

President Teddy Roosevelt has a reputation for being a tough guy, but here’s a story a bit more personal than the common tale of his days leading the Rough Riders. The best part of this story is that it’s in the President’s own words. It really does justice to the fair but tough man that Roosevelt was.
Take note that Roosevelt makes it clear that he really didn’t want this confrontation, but lacked any alternatives at the time. He also didn’t fall in with the other patrons who submitted to the bully and allow him to continue his shenanigans. He even let a few of the bully’s jibes slide until he stood up. Great story.

Ron Paul Launches Snowden Clemency Petition
Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has launched a petition to grant NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden clemency so he may return home. Russia had granted him amnesty for a term of 1 year, but this amnesty runs out in in 5 months, at the end of July. Paul said of Snowden “[He] sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program. Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.” Edward wants to return to his home but needs some degree of assurance that he won’t be persecuted.
