The gold standard of all rings both now and forever. With Solti, Nilsson, and the world's best, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, sheer perfection was reached. No other recording will ever equal this one....
Four days until Election Day and races are neck and neck, but your renewal right now will make an immediate difference
As I'm writing this, there are 87 hours until the polls open. I'm asking you to use 2 of them and come volunteer. In these last critical days, we're making phone calls and knocking on doors to remind Missourians to vote, and we need your help.
We know what side she's on--and we know what side Harry Reid is on: the side of middle class families. Now it's time for us to take sides. Please click here and make a contribution to Harry Reid's campaign to help expose Sharron Angle's radical agenda!
With only days left before the elections, Democrats and Republicans are locked in a fierce struggle over who will hold the majority in the US Senate next year. It’s not too late to make a difference! Below is polling information about the tightest, most crucial races.
Please consider last minute contributions to these campaigns.
There are only four days until Election Day.
With the latest polls showing many environmental leaders facing extremely competitive races -- every phone call we make, every door we knock on, and every contribution we RUSH to candidates – will make the difference between winning and losing on Tuesday.
This election is still very winnable, and this weekend is the most critical of the entire election season. Can you sign up to volunteer for Robin Carnahan in Kansas City?
Yes, I'll sign up to volunteer.
Sorry, I can't.
That’s why I urgently need your gift of $35, $50 ... even $75 or more -- right now. We need to pull out all the stops to prevent Election Day from turning into a disaster - not just for millions of American women today, but for generations to come.
Big monied special interest groups hope to buy a Congress by joining with Karl Rove to flood the airwaves in this final week with attack ads. But we know that elections are actually won block-by-block, house-by-house, and voter-by-voter.
You can't sit on the sidelines when everything we have worked so hard for is on the line -- what will you tell your children you did when the going got rough? I can tell you the fat lady hasn't sung, and this race is not over. If you can give a gift of even just $5, it will go a long way to making sure our sophisticated Get Out the Vote operation in races nationwide gets the job done.
I have to have this money in the bank tonight to wire to my campaigns for tomorrow -- there is no time to waste. Victory is on the line. Contribute today.
Please join me in support of this great leader by sending a contribution of $10, $25, or $50 to Harry Reid's campaign today!
Our progressive values are on the line in Pennsylvania. Your phone call will ensure we have a champion who will fight for those values on November 2nd.
So far, more than 310 phone bank shifts have been filled. We need just 24 more to meet our goal of 325!
ENGEL: The findings are that for most soldiers, and this wasn’t the sum total of all soldiers, it wasn’t that big of a deal…The majority — the number one answer, first answer was ‘I don’t care.’ That’s significant.
MADDOW: Predominant answer is ‘no big deal.’
ENGEL: Most common, number one. Number two was, ‘I would deal directly with the person involved.’ So when you put the two of those together, it is the majority. Now, there were some people who said, three, they would go to the chain of command and some four, who hated it, hated it. But the answers one and two are considered positive. So these studies show a relative if not positive outlook, at least an accepting outlook.
MADDOW: So the military study is, as you said, the survey of the troops is part of it. It’s an overall study of the feasibility of the issue….this survey of the troops, what you’ve learned is that a majority of troops it’s not going to be a major deal.
ENGEL: Not a deal breaker, that they they’re not going to be running from the army in droves. A key thing this study kept coming back to is that it’s very important about the chain of command. What commanders say. How far commanders act. What tone they set. The marines were the most negative out of the services. They had the most people who were — with negative responses. And the marine corps leadership has taken a stance and has been very vocally against this issue. And the study found that most soldiers and sailors and all different service members follow a chain of command. So if the chain of command accepts this as the law, the data is that so will the soldiers.
During a rally in Boston yesterday, a group of gay rights activists and AIDS research supporters interrupted a speech from President Obama while he was stumping for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Reportedly chants included "Mr. President, stop the bigotry! Support marriage equality!," "Do you also oppose Atheist Marriage?," and "Would you want a Civil Union?"
Mediaite reports on the incident, which seemed to noticeably agitate the president:
"The President appeared uncharacteristically upset as, mid-sentence, a group of folks in the crowd began to loudly object to his speech as he described the work his administration had done for AIDS research. As the crowd turned their heads up to look at the hecklers, President Obama followed as well, and modified his speech for them, menacingly pointing his finger up at them as he warned that a Republican leadership would be extremely destructive to their cause. After raising his voice mid-sentence in response to them, President Obama continued: “One of the great things about being a Democrat is, we like arguing with each other. But to the folks concerned about AIDS funding, I would say ‘take a look at what the Republican leadership has to say about AIDS funding.’”
In a recent interview I was asked about the recent tragedies about gay youth who have committed suicide, and I misspoke when I referred to someone's sexual identity as a "lifestyle choice." I meant no disrespect to the LGBT community, and I apologize to any who have taken offense at my poor choice of words. Sexual orientation and gender identity are not a choice, and anyone who knows me and my work over the years knows that I am a firm believer and supporter in the rights of LGBT Americans. Most of all, I hope this does not distract from the issue I was asked about -- the desperate, tragic decision by some young people who feel that their only recourse is to take their own lives because they are being bullied or harassed because they are gay, or because others believe they are gay. We must instill in young people respect for one another, and we must set an example of mutual regard and civility to create an environment that is safe for every person, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs acknowledged the Justice Department is preparing to appeal a court’s decision against the law preventing gays from serving openly in the military, but said President Obama is still committed to ending the policy.

At that point, the flight attendant got on the loud speaker, told those aboard to "go f*** themselves," grabbed a beer from the galley, deployed the chute and ran into the terminal. His car was parked at an employee lot and he drove home.
