Extractions: In weighing the morality of a possible attack on Iraq, both hawks and doves are saying they have all the support they need in the thought of a 4th-century African bishop. That's because they're finding that the ancient "just war" theory of St. Augustine of Hippo asks necessary moral questions for a modern nation considering a preemptive strike. Could such an attack be necessary to protect innocents? Have all other options been exhausted? Answers aside, both camps are using the same time-tested questions as a moral compass in uncharted waters.

Extractions: Frankly, I'd Rather Not ... insights from the post-boom, pre-x wasteland Posted by Tony on January 3, 2003 09:38 PM Penguin Shell Comment Tony, I just read your 12/31/02 Penguin Report editorial. I didn't think Lockergnome was a polital soapbox for the Facist left wing party. Yes, Facism is left, and you are supporting their agenda in your editorial. Let's see if I can clear some things up for you. Your life is already on the books and it is easy for businesses to sift through it. Marketing has been working on this for years. The internet just gave them an easy way to get much more detailed information. It is typical for liberals to attack the current administration for anything they can make up. This is a perfect example of the hipocracy. You say you are worried about someone getting inside your head? The liberals love to exploit how they perceive what is going on in someone's mind. The Trent Lott story is only one of many in a long line. This is also a great example of how they will twist a story around and leave out rather obvious information to pretend there is some new ominous threat to you. Actually you should be glad you have an adminstration that is being honest and open with you about it's plans.

Extractions: NPR's Morning Edition, November 13, 2002 HISTORY OF JOUSTING Jousting in its original form has generally been credited to a French man named Geoffori de Pruelli. The "sport" actually more of an occupation at the time, spread from France to Germany, to England, and into southern Europe during the tenth to twelfth centuries. Jousting tournaments were held as military exercises between the various nobles. Such tournaments, starting peacefully often turned into bloody battles between jealous champions. Winning such tournaments was one way for a lowborn knight to make a quick name for himself and win riches beyond ordinary dreams. Gradually these petty local wars became more sport oriented and sophisticated and less a matter of life or death. Knights were considered gentlemen and were required to abide by the ideas of chivalry and fair play, then in vogue. Much of the credit for this fair-play code has always gone to King Arthur and the tales of the Round Table, a thirteenth century tale. The first accounts of "Running at the Rings" dates to the days of James I of England demonstrating a knight's extreme skill, since the rings were obviously much smaller to lance than a man. The death of several nobles and at least one king, King Henry II of France in 1559, brought about the demise of the man-to-man type of jousting. It was also during this time that gunpowder was introduced into Europe from the Orient. Guns made warfare by horse-mounted lancers obsolete overnight. Although the precise evolution of ring jousting is not known, history does provide us with many well-documented great tournaments throughout the next several centuries. Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore, of the "colonies" is reported to have been the first to introduce jousting here. Jousting in Europe has declined whereas Americans, on the other hand, have built interest steadily.

What Is Medieval Jousting? Medieval jousting is the state sport of Maryland; knights began joustingin America in 1821. What is Medieval jousting? medieval jousting. http://kyky.essortment.com/medievaljoustin_rbje.htm
Extractions: What is Medieval jousting? Jousting began in 11th century France as a military exercise and soon spread throughout Europe. Despite Church opposition for its savagery and occassional state banishments jousting continued through the Middle Ages until the death of King Henry II of France from jousting injuries in 1599. Its revival, in a decidedly more humane form, occurred in Mount Solon, Virginia in 1821. Surely no sport in America has more romantic origins than jousting. A young Virginian maiden could not choose between the affections of two ardent suitors. Upon the advice of her uncle she decided to bestow her favor on the winner of a jousting contest. bodyOffer(25520) The site chosen for the joust was the Shenandoah Valleys spectacular Natural Chimneys for their resemblance to medieval castles. The two contestants were to ride at three rings suspended from arches 30 yards apart. The young knights practiced for weeks and on the day of the event a large crowd turned out to view the spectacle. Such a good time was had that it was decided to make the joust an annual event. From that day to this, on the third Saturday in August, the winning knight has earned the right to name and crown his Queen of Love and Beauty making the Mount Solon jousting tournament the oldest continually held sporting event in America.
