Italy Investigating New Collapses in Ancient Pompeii
Sun Mar 2, 2014
Deterioration began on the day that the ruins were uncovered. As long as they are exposed to the elements, the decay will continue. An enormous roof over the parts worth saving would slow it down. Blaming the bureaucrats (who have little money available to protect the site) will no …
Hoard of Gold Coins the Main Attraction at Money Show
Thu Feb 27, 2014

Displaced Russians Find Shelter in Run-Down Sochi Hotel
Thu Feb 20, 2014

5 Ways U.S. History Is More Latino Than We Think
Wed Feb 19, 2014
In reply to: MishyMe #2 Latinos will still exist - they will convert, speak Arabic, and pray in mosques every day. They already have the treating-women-like-property thing down, so that may be the foot in the door with that community - the muslim ethic is super-macho in that regard.
