New York Daily News | Submitted by: Soylent
"Turner used CNN production facilities to create what he called his "end-of-the-world" video. Sources tell me it consists of a recording of "Nearer, My God," over footage of a waving American flag.

Body Snatchers in Houston
Houston Press | Submitted by: Yidele Shwantzenwald
"The floors were slippery with blood and vomit, littered with soiled linen... blood-soiled mattresses had been flipped over… each man lay in the blood of his predecessor…This was not a hospital," de Hartog noted. "This was a public utility to keep the dead and dying off the streets." It goes without saying that most of them were indigent. Most were also black; white patients were segregated on separate wards.

Thus far they have restored the contents of 200 of the sacks, which were intended destroyed when the Berlin wall came down.

Homeland Security Jackboots?
Online Journal | Submitted by: Soylent
Speculations about the new OHS from an admittedly biased source. But even so, we should definitely keep a close eye on any developments from that new agency simply because it is in uncharted waters. Being alarmist is being prudent. "This new agency will also operate 'with extralegal authority.' It will then be able to act under suspension of habeas corpus and under suspension of the right against self incrimination, the Fifth Amendment privilege, and also the Fourth Amendment privilege."
