Ron Paul Refuses to Endorse McCain -- Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), former candidate for president of the Republican and Libertarian Parties, yesterday announced that he has refused to endorse Senator John McCain for president.

However, a scrap of history has come to light suggesting baseball was being played in England 20 years before the Battle of Lexington and Concorde began the American Revolution.
