Daytona Beach, Fla. - Danica Patrick finished eighth in the Daytona 500 on Sunday. She appeared to check up on the final lap when a crash erupted behind her. NASCAR did not throw a caution flag. "You needed a hole. You needed people to help you out," she said. "I had a feeling I was going to get freight-trained (if I went low)." Jimmie Johnson won the race. Patrick led a lap at the Daytona 500, not quite halfway through the 200-lap event. She ran in the top 10 most of the day, and was running third toward the end of the race. Patrick, the first woman to ever win the pole for a Sprint Cup Series race,

Finishing in the top ten is a good thing.

She led for four or five laps. I don´t watch NASCAR, but I tuned in to watch Patrick.

I watched part of this. They could rename it the Nerves of Steel 500. Talk about tailgating. Danica - you done good.

She went from 3rd to 8th on the last lap. I don´t call that good. She was in the #1 car and finished 8th by being lucky avoiding some nasty crashes. Again, not that good.

NASCAR itself is boring...boring...boring these days. I was mostly watching bowling with an occasional flip back to the race to see if there were any more crashes. Bowling was better, IMO.

Danica was fantastic. She didn´t get a lot of help, which every driver knows is necessary to win a race. She electrified the crowd, and I imagine the TV ratings too. All the haters who like NASCAR but not her ought to wake up. She is going to make your favorite sport more popular than ever. Way to go, Danica!

You go girl.

Today was a day of real accomplishments.

NASCAR
Match Play Golf

and then tonight the gypsies tramps and thieves will trample the red carpet.

The first two events of the day were worthy of real America.

It was a surprisingly incident-free race. It seemed to me that the drivers were keeping their distance from each other due to the new car designs. It also appeared to me that, in the last lap, Danica was intentionally blocked to push her back to 8th. WHen they interviewed her, I could tell she wanted to complain about it, but held back. Gotta give her credit for biting her lip on that.

Everyone in a restrictor plate race gets shuffled back. Danica got shuffled at a bad time, the end of the race. Otherwise she drove very well, even leading for a lap, something a lot of drivers would like to have done. Good Job Danica!

Danica did a great job today, and proved herself as a driver, rather than just a woman. Yes, it was a day of historic firsts for women in NASCAR, but now it´s time to move off of her gender and her love life, and let her do her job.

Thank you, #7 and #18. If not simply for her gender, there would have been no story at all for any racer who fell from #3 to #8 in the blink of an eye.

What the story doesn´t say is that the final 5 laps began after a yellow flag, so it was anybody´s race. That she fell back so quickly means only one thing: SHE WAS SCHOOLED.

A big day for Danica Patrick. It´s unfortunate that yesterday´s wreck overshadowed today´s festivities a bit BUT the drivers were magnificent. I don´t see much to this sport but I know I am in the minority. I just admire the guts of those drivers !!!

Let´s see celebrate Danica for doing what no other woman has ever done or join the he man, women hating club tossing out cave man opinions from their living room. BTW, it was very obvious that no one was willing to team up with her today.

My apologies to anyone that may have posted here that finished 7th or better in the race today.

If the men refused to perform behaviour for her during the race that they would normally perform for a male driver, then sounds like the men need to be taken to the woodshed, not Danica being criticized by ignorant posters.

Finishing in the top 8 was very good. Finishing this race is pretty special in itself. Attrition takes its toll.

The resident misogynists always have to slam her. She´ll keep keepin´ on. Maybe someday she will have the support that the male drivers have.

Other racers know she is really quite good. A smart driver.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding, extreme sleep deprivation

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
