Human sacrifice in todays India
Time | Submitted by: sniffer
"In his police confession, Karmakar says his wife, daughter and three accomplices had to gag Manju and pin her down on the earthen floor before the shrine. In ritual order, Karmakar wafted incense over her, tore off her blue skirt and pink T shirt, shaved her, sprinkled her with holy water from the Ganges and rubbed her with cooking fat. Then chanting mantras to the "mother" goddess Kali, he sawed off Manju's hands, breasts and left foot, placing the body parts in front of a photograph of a blood-soaked Kali idol. Police say the arcs of blood on the walls suggest Manju bled to death in minutes."

Cheney dodging summmons, threatens arrest
Cybercast News Service | Submitted by: DPCrawford
Last Monday, a process server was threatened with arrest when he attempted to deliver a court summons to Vice President Dick Cheney. The process server was informed by a White House security guard that he would be arrested if he dropped the papers on the ground and left (this being a legally acceptable method). Judicial Watch says "We have served many a lawsuit on Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton when they were in the White House. The Clinton White House accepted the papers. Never before have our process servers been threatened with arrest." According to paragraph (c) of the District of Columbia Superior Court Civil Procedure Rules, the judge can order a U.S. marshal to serve the summons. So there's always that option. [The paperwork in question was the result of an ongoing lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a government watchdog organization, on behalf of the shareholders of Halliburton, the megacorporation once headed by Cheney.]

The Man Who Will Fall to Earth
Wired | Submitted by: RMS

The science of splat
St. Petersburg Times | Submitted by: Toots
"But, because of the shape the insects are in after they ker-splat on a windshield, Hostetler usually can't identify the species, unless they are love bugs.
