An overjoyed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy, and the nation celebrates the birth of a future king. The couple’s son weighed 8lb 6oz and was delivered at 4.24pm today at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington with his proud father, Prince William, looking on. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight, said a spokesman for the palace. The long-awaited baby will be given the title His Royal Highness and be known as Prince of Cambridge,

I was wrong again, I thought it would be a 6 lb. girl.

This is a big baby for such a tiny woman.

Congrats to all!

It´s news and interesting and I wish the couple well, but I´ve been amazed to see the coverage this has gotten.

We´re Americans. We didn´t like royalty and many of the things it stands for. I´m surprised at the level of devotion by the MSM and people commenting -- and the still present reverence for Diana.

But at least it gives us a break from the Trayvon coverage.

The birth of a baby is a joy to the parents, whether they´re "royal" or poor as church mice.

I share in their joy. Congratulations to the new parents.

As an aside, this means it will be one more generation before the new rule of inheritance of the throne can be used--that the first born child succeeds, whether male or female.

As I understand it, the name the baby goes by may not be the name he assumes as King. William, for instance, could choose one of his several other given names. His great-grandfather, King George VI, was known in the family as "Bertie," his first name being Albert.

Many best wishes to this young child and to his parents.

And won´t the radical feminists be angry! They wanted a girl just to break precedent.

I was talking to my Mother earlier this afternoon as it is her 89th birthday. I told her that in my mind, I bet on Kate´s child being born today as it was a full moon. She smiled on the other end of the line.

Great news as I so appreciate Her Royal Highness & Prince William. My Mother also thought it was a good sign that both the brothers have served honorably in their Military. Happy first day, little one.

I´ve enjoyed the coverage of this young couple and wish them well with their new baby. William and Kate seem like genuine, decent people who love and respect each other, and they exude grace and class. They waited to have a child until after marriage, which is the proper thing to do.

Meanwhile, here in the U. S., we have the...Kardashians. Oy vey! What role models!

Congratulations to the parents and to all of our UK friends who are celebrating. Here´s to LIFE!

Not trying to be crabby, but I´m guessing that the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary´s hospital must be much nicer than the rest of that place. While visiting London a couple of years ago, I had to take my daughter to the emergency room and St. Mary´s was the closest to our hotel. It was dingy, dirty, shabby and crumbling. The end result of socialized medicine - we saw it in Romania too.

Name him Richard! In honour of the discovery of the body of Richard III last year - a great archeological moment.

Actually, I remember when Prince William was born, in 1982. It was right at the end of the Falklands War, and the British had retaken Port Stanley. Some people suggested the new royal baby should be named "Stanley" in honour of the victory. But the prospect of "Good King Stan" didn´t seem to be enough for the royal family to break with tradition.

That was a quick labor. Congratulations to the parents and the Royal Family.

Critics abound, but this family has survived and maintained the aura of royalty when all the other crowned heads of Europe have disappeared or become quite common. The monarchy was proclaimed dead after George III and his useless brood, again after Victoria, after the abdication of Edward VII and in the 1970s. Yet here the monarchy is is on the ascendency in Elizabeth II´s diamond jubilee year with the birth of a boy to a popular heir presumptive

Congrats to our royal allies across the pond.
I am sure Queen Elizabeth has recently found a new appreciation for religion. She must have been praying to newly minted St. John Paul for a boy, not a girl, because I am sure she thought the new baby would be named Diane (in honor of the late princess) whom she hated with a passion.

To Kate: Now let´s work on #2. Don´t forget the old saying, "A heir and a spare."

Congratulations to the Cambridges. It´s possible that the boy, if named George, would actually reign as George VIII, since there´s been speculation that Prince Charles would choose to reign under the name George if he does ascend to the throne. The previous two guys named King Charles were not exactly an illustrious precedent for a future Charles III.

#58, I seriously doubt it. There might be a discreet Royal Warrant, as in:

The warrant is typically advertised on company hoardings, letter-heads and products by displaying the coat of arms or the heraldic badge of the royal personage as appropriate. Underneath the coat of arms will usually appear the phrase "By Appointment to..." followed by the title and name of the royal customer, and then what goods are provided. No other details of what is supplied may be given.

The doctor´s warrant might simply say "provider of medical services" or something low-key like that. See: http://tinyurl.com/ly64l8j

As for the name, I´d love to see the child named after William´s brother, Henry (or Harry, as he is more commonly known). He might also be named Michael, after Kate´s father. As long as he´s not named Charles. . . .

However, this is not a day for cynicism. Heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to the Royal Family and all of Great Britain. Lord knows it´s nice to see some happy news for a change!

#62 - that would be Henry IX. And I doubt he´ll be named Henry. William´s brother is Henry. Harry is just a nickname.

Thank you, Lucianne Staff.

I never thought of Spencer as one of the middle names, but I think it would be entirely appropriate. I´ve thought of "James" as well, to honor the King that gave us the King James Bible, or George, to honor the Queen´s father.

Congrats to the proud parents. That´s a big baby. My daughter was 8lbs 4oz so yeah I´m sure that was some work pushing but Kate looked as good as ever. I say name the boy Richard since that´s such a strong kingly name. Whatever you do don´t name him after grandpa Charlie. We all know what kind of stand up guy he turned out to be.

Jeb Bush’s Rush to Make
Money May Be Hurdle
New York Times, by Michael Barbaro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 10:55:47 AM     Post Reply
As it sought to recruit well-heeled investors, an untested and unprofitable Miami company named InnoVida brought aboard a trusted Florida figure in 2007: Jeb Bush, the former governor and the brother of a sitting president. For potential stockholders, the imprimatur of Mr. Bush, who joined InnoVida as a paid consultant and a member of the board of directors, conferred credibility on the young start-up. That credibility did not last long. It turned out that the leaders of InnoVida, a manufacturer of inexpensive building materials, had faked documents, lied about the health of the business and misappropriated $40 million in company

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

An unholy alliance between the Tea Party and the teachers’ unions threatens to derail the most promising education reform in decades. Like Rocky in the early rounds, the new Common Core math and reading standards are being pummeled left and right. From the left: Education icon Diane Ravitch says the Common Core represents a “utilitarian view of education” that is too focused on testing, data, and accountability. From the right, “ObamaCore” is denounced as federal intrusion. Heritage Foundation education fellow Lindsey Burke calls it “an effort to impose a uniform, standardized curriculum across the country.” From the further right, the always

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
