UK’s Prince Philip admitted to hospital

LONDON, England, Prince Philip, the husband of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, was admitted to hospital on Friday with a chest infection, Buckingham Palace said.

Prince Philip married Queen Elizabeth in 1947.

The 86 year old prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, was taken to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London for assessment, the palace said, and all of his weekend engagements have been canceled. No further details were available.

The Prince was seen in public last week during French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s state visit to the UK.

He was due to join the Queen on a royal visit to Devon and Cornwall in southwestern England next week, as well as attending two functions at Windsor Castle. A spokesman for Buckingham Palace told the UK’s Press Association that none of his engagements next week has been canceled.

Prince Philip was born into the Greek royal family in 1921, only to be smuggled out of Greece a year later aboard a British Royal Navy vessel after the king of Greece, Constantine I, his uncle, was forced to abdicate amid political instability.

A great~great grandson of Queen Victoria and a descendant of the Danish royal family, he served in the Royal Navy during World War II, rising to the rank of lieutenant.

In 1947, he married Queen Elizabeth, then heir to the throne, renouncing his Greek royal title to become a naturalized British citizen. Following Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne in 1952 he gave up his naval career to support her, in her royal duties.

Prince Philip is the patron of about 800 organizations and was the first president of the World Wildlife Fund. The prince has been a staunch defender of the royal establishment, turning against members of the family who have damaged its reputation.

Philip is not without controversy, however. He is renowned for making what some regard as inappropriate comments and was accused of insensitive remarks after the shooting of school children in Dunblane, Scotland, in 1996.

Conspiracy theorists have blamed him for having a role in Princess Diana’s death in 1997, although the judge at the inquest said this week there was no evidence to support that accusation.

King slaying stained Memphis for years…

2209074400_9cf42be901_m.jpg The Motel when Dr King was slain.

In MEMPHIS, Tenn., Joe Warren dropped his head to his hands, sobbing as he remembered back 40 years to the bitter garbage workers strike that drew Martin Luther King Jr. to Memphis and to his death.

Warren, 86, was one of the 1,300 black sanitation workers who walked off the job in 1968 with a strike that tore at the foundation of the city’s white only rule.

“They talked to you like you were a dog, and they worked you like a dog,” he said, his shoulders trembling. “But I couldn’t find a job nowhere else.”

The 65 day strike for the right to unionize ended with a victory for the workers. But King’s assassination stained this Southern city for years, limiting its prosperity and hurting its reputation worldwide.

“It took a decade of growth out of the Memphis regional economy,” said David Ciscel, a University of Memphis economist. “It was a time of fairly rapid growth in the South, and it was a time when Atlanta and Nashville kind of left us behind. People just didn’t want to associate with us.”

The city’s fortunes eventually improved, thanks largely to a young cargo airline named Federal Express that in the early 1980s showed that Memphis could still be a good place to do business. The airline grew into today’s FedEx Corp.

“It rescued Memphis,” Ciscel said.

The sanitation strike and King’s assassination made clear to blacks and whites alike that “the old plantation mentality had to be dumped,” said Michael Honey, author of “Going Down Jericho Road,” a history of the Memphis strike and King’s struggle for economic justice for the poor.

In the 1960s, close to 60 percent of black families in Memphis lived in poverty, Honey said, and few jobs other than manual labor were open to blacks.

Today the city has a poverty rate of nearly 24 percent overall, almost twice the national figure, and 30 percent among black residents.

But the good jobs, in government and the private sector, are no longer reserved for whites. Memphis, which was 40 percent black in the 1960s, is now more than 60 percent black. It has had a black mayor since 1991.

The strike began in February 1968 after two sanitation workers were crushed by a trash compactor when they climbed in a garbage truck to get out of the rain.

The accident was blamed on faulty equipment, but it inflamed tensions that had festered for years over low wages, poor working conditions and racist treatment of black workers by white superiors.

The garbage workers had to wrestle with tubs and cans of all shapes and sizes, some so heavy it took two or three men to lift them. In the sweltering Memphis summers, the containers were prime breeding grounds for maggots that tumbled onto the workers.

“You’d have to tie a rag around your head to keep them from going down your back. That’s rough work, but you couldn’t say anything or they’d fire you,” Warren said. “We were men, but they treated us like boys.”

Pay ranged from $1.65 to $1.85 an hour for garbage crew members, just above the federal minimum wage of $1.60. Workers got no breaks or overtime pay and could be sent home without full pay when it rained. White supervisors drew full pay, rain or shine.

Looking back on the indignities endured by the workers still brings tears to Warren’s eyes, but the pain is softened by memories of organizing the strike and taking to the streets under the banner “I Am A Man.”

“I had a sign on my front and my back,” he said, “and I was walking around saying, ‘I am a man. I ain’t going to be quiet no more.'”

King was cut down April 4 by a rifle slug that tore through his jaw and spine as he stood on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel. James Earl Ray, a petty criminal and prison escapee, pleaded guilty to the murder. He died in prison in 1998.

After King’s death, with the National Guard patrolling the streets, worried Memphis residents began calling for an end to racial hostilities.

“In the beginning, there was chaos,” said Fred Davis, one of three newly elected blacks on the 13 member city council in 1968. “But it brought people together who had never talked to each other to try to deal with a community problem.”

Twelve days after King’s death, the strike ended with the city council recognizing the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees as the workers’ union. The workers got a pay raise of 15 cents an hour, promotions based on seniority and the right to file on~-the~job grievances.

Though King’s killer was not from Memphis, the city was seen by much of the rest of the world as a cultural backwater responsible for the murder.

“People in Memphis have always been pretty sensitive of what outsiders think,” said history professor Charles Crawford of the University of Memphis. “It caused a deliberate change, maybe not in the true feelings of a lot of people, but at least in the expressions of them. The black community could see the collapsing of resistance to their aspirations.”

The National Civil Rights Museum opened at the Lorraine in 1991 after private citizens saved it from foreclosure and demolition. It is now a tourist attraction and a shrine to the civil rights movement.

“Most people say the assassination, set the city back hugely in terms of economic development and tourism and all that,” said Honey, the author, who is also a professor of labor and civil rights studies at the University of Washington, Tacoma.

“They’re now trying to turn that minus into a plus by acknowledging what happened and trying to highlight the history of the black freedom movement.”

For many people, Memphis has become “kind of hallowed ground,” Honey added. “It’s a place where important things happened and people want to connect to that.”

Diana inquest: ‘Hot murder’

158601410_d61d644099_m.jpg

If the public following the inquest into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and her lover expected a showdown in Court 73 from Mohamed Al Fayed , they certainly got one.

The billionaire father of Dodi Al Fayed, who died in a car crash with Diana, was testifying in the inquest into the couple’s death. And within minutes, the teary eyed Egyptian called the August 1997 crash “hot murder.”

919187781_961caec024_m.jpg
“I will not rest until I die. If I lose everything to find the truth,” Al Fayed told the court.

Al Fayed repeated his allegations that the royal ramily was responsible for the crash, that Diana was pregnant and that the couple was about to announced their engagement. Allegations a string of other witnesses have denied.

When an inquest lawyer challenged Al Fayed as to why he didn’t tell everybody as soon as he knew about Diana and Dodi”s alleged engagment, Al Fayed tersely replied, “it was one hour before they were murdered. Am I going to announce it after they were dead?”

2087713020_a8e5310915_m.jpg

He also added his allegation that Prince Philip, the husband of the Queen, couldn’t bear to have a Muslim be stepfather to the future king of England.

Al Fayed then let out a torrent of claims and exhortations: That members of the Royal family were racist and that he deserved a fair hearing in court because he had brought so much business into the UK.
Some of his curt answers actually drew laughter from members of the public watching the testimony via video in an adjourning room.

“Diana suffered for 20 years from this Dracula family,” Al Fayed said, to chuckles inside and outside the court.

Some of the exchanges would be funny, were it not so clear that Al Fayed is still grieving for his son and is clearly disturbed by suggestions his version of events are “hallucinations.”

The inquest continues…

Agent Orange and it’s effects…

To this day, I still hear opinions about Vietnam. That there was no such thing as Agent Orange and that they do not understand why Vietnam Veterans have P.T.S. If you look to see the madness…it, to me is quite understandable and that our soldiers were effected with Agent Orange as well. Germicides do not know the difference between a Vietnamese or an American.

I see Iraq as I did Vietnam…where are the weapons of mass destruction? I only see a war that was NOT NECESSARY!

A 20 year old pregnant Marine had a superficial wound to her neck that may have occurred after death, according to autopsy results released Friday.

If so, the finding casts doubt on the main suspect’s story.

Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach’s neck wound may have occurred after her death, according to autopsy results
Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach’s body and that of her fetus were found beneath a fire pit this year near the North Carolina home of Cpl. Cesar Laurean, the main suspect in the case.
The bodies were found after Laurean’s wife produced a note he had written claiming that Lauterbach slit her own throat during an argument, officials have said.

A gaping 4 inch wound was found on the left side of Lauterbach’s neck, according to autopsy results released by the office of the chief medical examiner in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The wound is “incised,” meaning it is a clean cut such as that made by a sharp instrument. However, the wound itself would not have been fatal, as there was only minimal damage to the underlying muscle, the results said.

“The autopsy confirms that there was a superficial incision to the neck that appears to have been made post mortem,” said a statement from Merle Wilberding and Chris Conard, attorneys representing Lauterbach’s mother, Mary Lauterbach. “If so, that incision may have been made to have the body conform to Cesar Laurean’s story that she had ‘killed herself by slitting her throat.’ “

“It looks like that incision was done to try to conform with the story he tried to present through his note and through his wife,” Wilberding said. “The autopsy would support the criminal investigation conclusion that Laurean’s story is not supported by the evidence.”

The neck wound did not appear to have resulted from the attempt to burn the body, the autopsy results said, but it “may have occurred after death.”

Lauterbach was eight months pregnant when she was last seen near Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, in December. Her body was found a month later.

Officials have said that Lauterbach died from blunt force trauma to the head. The results released Friday were the full results of the autopsy conducted in January.

Authorities believe that Laurean, who faces murder and other charges in the case, has fled North Carolina for his native Mexico to avoid prosecution. Lauterbach had accused him of raping her, but it is unclear whether he was the father of her child.

Authorities believe that Laurean killed Lauterbach on December 14 and used her ATM card 10 days later. He has been indicted on charges of murder, ATM card theft, attempted card theft, fraud and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police said this week that there were no updates in the search for Laurean. A Mexican court has issued a provisional arrest warrant for him.

Well, what do you think Baby Boomers…the bodies [mother and child] found under a fire pit, where he lives…a wound that did not kill her…a wound that ANY pregnant woman would NOT inflict on herself. Ladies we all know that a mother would not kill her unborn child…a note saying…that was the reason she died. What delusions of grandeur and narcissism.

And this dirty, rotten, filthy sum bucket, of a so called man, is the MAIN and only suspect in killing of this unborn child and woman… this so called man, the possible woman and child killer, hits the path to MEXICO. Not to prove that he is innocent but to save his own hide…leaving his wife and family alone to fend for their selves.

“Innocent until proven guilty”, you say…I say “this one is guilty until proven innocent!”

The Mexican government has this slimy, sum ball running loose in their country and yet has an innocent Canadian citizen, like Brenda Martin, locked up with out so much as a trail…for over TWO stinking years!

I feel great despair for Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach’s family and friends. I pray that soon, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth…for Maria Lauterbach and her unborn child, be found and repaid.
