"We are being swept along by a tide where Christianity is being eroded and despised," said the musician who normally teaches classical works by the likes of Mozart and Beethoven. Byrne told Review how he took part in two high-profile protests in Drogheda this week. On Monday, he was joining hundreds of others in marching through the Louth town to stop the name of the local hospital being changed. Management at Our Lady of Lourdes hospital have suggested dropping the name and replacing it with a title that has been stripped of religious connotations. The suggested options for the new name include Drogheda Regional Hospital or Drogheda University Hospital. Then, after his march to save Our Lady of Lourdes, before sunrise on Monday morning, Byrne was out protesting again. This time it was a much more controversial demonstration, after reports spread on social media that the first abortion was about to take place at Our Lady of Lourdes hospital. The piano teacher was one of a group of … [Read more...] about ‘Christianity is being eroded and despised’

DRIVING THE DAY OUT TO BAT: Theresa May faces her first grilling from *actual voters* on her Brexit deal this morning, as No. 10’s frantic PR blitz continues. The prime minister will take questions from callers live on LBC Radio at 8 a.m., and you can be certain quite a few will be angry Brexiteers. May will also have to face LBC’s notoriously punchy host Nick Ferrari, who is known for pushing senior politicians into embarrassing on-air meltdowns. (See Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott in 2017, and then-Green Party leader Natalie Bennett two years before.) It’s a risky strategy for No. 10 given May’s difficulty in connecting with, well, ordinary humans, but has been deemed necessary as part of a wider PR push continuing through the weekend and beyond. “She needs to be out there now, selling … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook: May goes out to bat — Gove will tear us apart, again — Penny drops?

The list is full of hundreds of unsung heroes, from counsellors and a Holocaust survivor to Britain's longest-serving poppy seller.

Produced by Jaime Stolz and Marc Goldbaum [This story originally aired on May 6, 2017] "To have anybody murdered is a shock to the community, but to have an 11-year-old boy and a housekeeper killed in the manner they were – I think is a whole 'nother level," Omaha Police Sgt. Scott Warner told CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod. In 2008, a community was shocked by the brutal stabbing deaths of Tom Hunter and Shirlee Sherman inside the Hunter family home. Police found no DNA, no signs of a robbery and little motive for someone to want them dead. Five years later and six miles away, tragedy struck again when Dr. Roger Brumback, and his wife, Mary, were found murdered in their home. For the two law enforcement officers investigating the cases, the attack on the Brumbacks was eerily similar to what they found five years earlier with the Hunter and Sherman murders. Investigators would find more similarities between the cases and a trail that led to Creighton University … [Read more...] about Was revenge the motive behind Omaha stabbing deaths?
