Rutland Herald | Submitted by: ADESN
"Police confiscated $50,000 in cash from a Vermont couple who had come to bail their daughter out of jail, claiming the money smelled like marijuana. Police said they thought the cash could be the proceeds of drug deals... The district attorney’s office is seeking to keep the $50,000 brought to bail out Santor, who remains in jail. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Jan. 16." We are unaware of any precedent to this, or any law granting such power to the government.

Son of Star Wars has Canadians in tizzy
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"U.S. President George W. Bush recently ordered his military to install the first phase of a missile shield, nicknamed "Son of Star Wars," because it could include space-based components. Foreign Affairs Minister Bill Graham has warned that putting weapons in space could be "illegal." At the moment, however, experts say Canada doesn't have enough surveillance technology to verify whether the U.S. program violates any of the few international treaties that govern space."

Diana Ross supremely plastered
The Smoking Gun | Submitted by: Boat6float
"Diana Ross was so plastered when pulled over by Arizona police yesterday (12/30), the singer could not accurately write down the alphabet, list numbers sequentially, or tell officers the time or date. And when the star was asked to perform a "one leg stand," she "fell over" after only seven seconds, and even panned her own balancing act to arresting officers: "Ha Ha Ha. Great."

Did Rumsfeld help arm Saddam?
Washington Post | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Among the people instrumental in tilting U.S. policy toward Baghdad during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war was Donald H. Rumsfeld, now defense secretary, whose December 1983 meeting with Hussein as a special presidential envoy paved the way for normalization of U.S.-Iraqi relations. Declassified documents show that Rumsfeld traveled to Baghdad at a time when Iraq was using chemical weapons on an "almost daily" basis in defiance of international conventions."

Decacia
New York Times | Submitted by: Soylent
"His film, Decasia, was fashioned entirely out of snippets of severely distressed and heart-rendingly decomposed nitrate film stock: decades-old footage, taken from archives all around the country, and at the last possible moment... For all the sorry ugliness of the situation, the actual pictures that this relentless disintegration was producing could be more than just pretty.
