Last year, legions of fans, friends and peers were saddened to learn of the death of writer Tom Clancy. Arguably one of the finest writers and storytellers of his generation, Clancy was justifiably credited with the creation of the "Techno-Thriller" genre of writing, and its creation of an entire segment of the publishing industry. So it is this week, with more than a little anticipation, that fans of his work are about to be rewarded with the first book of a treasured Tom Clancy spinoff series, Op Center. Published by St. Martin's Press (@StMartinsPress), Out Of The Ashes, is the first new book of the series in over a decade, and features many of the qualities that Clancy fans have come to hope for and desire. A new Op Center, with a new location, new characters, and a new focus on how to deal with the evolving challenges of terrorism and international threats in the 21st century. Already a bestseller over this past weekend, this is a book that is going to make an impression.

President Barack Obama pressured Congress on Wednesday to move quickly to address the massive influx of children at the border, and he aimed to deflect mounting criticism over his administration’s attention to the issue.
He hailed the efforts of Dallas County officials and religious groups to help care for up to 2,000 children.
And he called pointedly on Texas Republicans to help Congress move quickly on the White House’s request for an emergency $3.7 billion.
“The problem here is not a major disagreement around the actions that could be helpful in dealing with the problem,” “The only question at this point is why wouldn’t the Texas delegation or any of the other Republicans who are concerned about this not want to put this on a fast track?”
Obama’s call for action came as children continue to flood into Texas from Central America. More than 50,000 unaccompanied immigrants or families have been caught entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico in the last nine months, most from Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador. The White House has said most will ultimately be deported.Dallas Morning News

Op/Ed: Why Black Men Need More White Women: By Raynard Jackson
Black women constantly complain about the dearth of “eligible” Black men to date and marry. Noted sociologist William Julius Wilson has argued that “the increasing levels of non-marriage and female-headed households is a manifestation of the high levels of economic dislocation experienced by lower-class Black men in recent decades.”
He further argued that, “When joblessness is combined with high rates of incarceration and premature mortality among Black men; it becomes clearer that there are fewer marriageable black men relative to black women who are able to provide the economic support needed to sustain a family.”
Then you add in the unfortunate increase in homosexuality within the Black community and you have a recipe for disaster.
This is why Black men need more White women like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. Even though they are conservative media personalities, they have done more to promote the well-being of Black males than many of the very women who stridently complain about the lack of “eligible” Black men.
