The disc contained several documents, including emails and documents exchanged between Michael Rowles, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Plaintiff Live Nation Worldwide, Inc. (“Live Nation”), and Joyce Smyth, who… [read post]

Remember the empty phrase "support the troops" that pro-war types hurled as a conversation stopper during the Bush presidency? Very often, Iraq War supporters said that people who criticized Bush, questioned the need for the offensive, or challenged the veracity of the claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction were showing a lack of respect for the troops.If that logic was heartfelt, I wonder whether these same individuals will support the firing or resignation of General… [read post]
