- Nelson Mandela: How US conservatives viewed him then – and now
The world press is filled with encomiums for South African leader Nelson Mandela, laudatory statements by President Obama and other world leaders, editorials praising his courage in fighting against and then leading his country out of racial oppression. “My first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics was a protest against apartheid,” President said when Mr. Mandela died this week. “Like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set.” But it wasn’t that long ago that many elected officials and political leaders in the United States –conservatives, mainly – were outspoken in their opposition to what Mandela represented, which to them was socialism (or worse yet, communism) and borderline terrorism since Mandela had advocated armed resistance to South Africa’s white minority regime.

- Soccer-Emotional Destro ends injury misery with Roma winner
Mattia Destro's yellow card was a small price to pay for his emotional goal celebration as the AS Roma forward put a 10-month injury nightmare behind him on Sunday. The Italy forward came off the bench in the second half against Fiorentina for his comeback match and, within eight minutes, scored to give Roma a 2-1 win and end their run of four successive draws. "This long absence made me suffer and it's great to have left this awful period behind me." Destro, who has played for Italy at every age level and made four appearances at senior level, injured his left knee in a Coppa Italia match against Inter Milan last January. It was predicted that he would be out of action for two months and he made a gradual return to the Roma team towards the end of the season.
