Salute our military heroes this holiday season

FILE - This is a  Sunday, June 6, 1982 file photo of U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Britain's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at the lunch table, at the Palace of Versailles, France. Declassified documents revealed Friday Jan. 3, 2014  how British spies hunted in vain for the creator of a fake recording of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Soviet spies and Argentine agents were considered, but an anarchist punk band later claimed responsibility. The tape, sent to Dutch newspapers in 1983, purported to capture the leaders sparring during the 1982 Falklands War. A transcript shows Reagan urging Thatcher ''to control yourself," and the British leader responding: "We have to use violence" against Argentina. British authorities quickly identified the recording as a forgery. A Foreign Office adviser said the MI6 intelligence agency had considered Soviet or Argentine agents and British leftists as possible culprits. (AP Photo/ File)

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field.
