Senator endorses cybervigilantism for copyright violators
Washington Post | Submitted by: j trotter
"The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Tuesday he favors developing new technology to remotely destroy the computers of people who illegally download music from the Internet. ... During a discussion on methods to frustrate computer users who illegally exchange music and movie files over the Internet, Hatch asked technology executives about ways to damage computers involved in such file trading. ... 'If we can find some way to do this without destroying their machines, we'd be interested in hearing about that,' Hatch said. 'If that's the only way, then I'm all for destroying their machines. If you have a few hundred thousand of those, I think people would realize' the seriousness of their actions, he said. 'There's no excuse for anyone violating copyright laws,' Hatch said."

British politician attacks Iraqi WMD intelligence
politics.guardian.co.uk | Submitted by: wingnut
"Former foreign secretary Robin Cook today dealt a series of devastating blows to the government's case for a war against Iraq, saying that it was 'now clear that Saddam Hussein did not represent a "clear and serious threat."' ... Mr Cook called last September's so-called 'dodgy dossier' both a 'red herring' and a 'mistake', saying he had been 'taken aback by how thin it was.' ... Mr Cook said the government went to war with Iraq using information that was 'highly suggestible' and intelligence that was selected to fit its position. ... He said he was 'disappointed' by the quality of the intelligence in the September dossier as it did not provide 'any recent and alarming' intelligence to suggest that Iraq was a current and serious threat."

News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"A 79-year-old Pakistani great-grandmother is alleged to be four months pregnant and could become the world's oldest mother. Khurshid Bibi from the village of Ghaziabad was taken to hospital last week after she complained of pain in her slightly swollen abdomen. 'Initially we suspected that she had got an ovarian cyst and we sent her for an ultrasonography,' said Fatima Suraiya, the doctor who treated Mrs Bibi at a hospital in Multan about 125km from her village. 'But we were taken aback when the report showed that she was pregnant with a healthy fetus.' ... Mrs Bibi's husband Ahmed Din, 85, who she married in 1950, said he would be happy to have a baby after a gap of nearly 53 years and he prayed that it would be a son."
