First Word
"Our fight isn’t whether there should be active government, but rather, where it should be active and where should it leave us alone." Gary Horton, columnist (click here for editorial)

Today is Wednesday, July 8, the 189th day of 2009. There are 176 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On July 8, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson received a tumultuous welcome in New York City after his return from the Versailles Peace Conference in France; Wilson then headed back to Washington, arriving around midnight.

One year ago: A bipartisan group chaired by former secretaries of state released a study saying the next time the president goes to war, Congress should be consulted and vote on whether it agrees.

Watercooler talk
RISING SUN, Md. (AP) — A Delaware man faces drunken driving charges after he was pulled over for speeding in northeastern Maryland and a sheriff’s deputy noticed he wasn’t wearing any pants. A spokesman for the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office says 41-year-old Jonathan Schultz “was driving commando.”

The spokesman, Lt. Bernard Chiminto, said Schultz was stopped Saturday near Rising Sun for going 69 mph in a 50-mph zone.

The deputy smelled alcohol and noticed that Schultz was partially covered by a towel from the waist down. The Newark, Del., resident told the deputy he’d lost his pants, but the deputy didn’t find any pants in the car.
