Veterans Day

The guns of World War I fell silent 101 years ago today when the Germans signed the 1918 Armistice agreeing to end hostilities between the Allies and Germany, signing the momentous agreement in a railroad car at Compiègne, France, ending the bloody conflict. The armistice was signed earlier that cold, drizzly November day and went into […]

How can a judge in the state court system rule on the constitutionality […]
