For this to make a difference in Massachusetts, someone will need to challenge current legislation based on this court finding. This won't happen quickly. I looked on the G.O.A.L. website and...

I don't know the rule, but if there is a rule that would call back a touchdown because of an instinctive human response, then it's a very bad rule.

We're Just Different People

I've often heard people say that Conservatives and Liberals basically want the same thing, they just have different ways of going about it. But a recent Reason-Rupe Poll (Sept. 1, 2011) shows that...
