Iraq War deadlier than Vietnam, so far
Reuters | Submitted by: Kjell Phuket
"The U.S. death toll in Iraq has surpassed the number of American soldiers killed during the first three years of the Vietnam War, the brutal Cold War conflict that cast a shadow over U.S. affairs for more than a generation... The casualty count for Iraq apparently surpassed the Vietnam figure last Sunday, when a U.S. soldier killed in a rocket-propelled grenade attack south of Baghdad became the conflict's 393rd American casualty since Operation Iraqi Freedom began on March 20... The Bush administration has rejected comparisons between Iraq and Vietnam, which traumatized Americans a generation ago."

Leaked memo substantiates Saddam-al Qaeda link
Weekly Standard | Submitted by: jimbo
"Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda - perhaps even for Mohamed Atta - according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum."

Chinese serial killer arrested
CNN | Submitted by: Kaiser Wilhelm
"Chinese police have arrested a man accused of knifing 65 people to death in one of the most horrifying cases of serial slayings in China's recent history. Ex-convict Yang Zhiya was grabbed earlier this month in the northern city of Cangzhou after police inspecting an entertainment venue recognized him from a national most-wanted list, the Guangzhou Daily said on Saturday... Despite the astonishing death toll and the grisly nature of the crimes, Yang's case has not been widely reported in tightly controlled state media since his capture on November 3... The four-paragraph report in a city newspaper contrasted with the media's intensive coverage of serial killers in the West, such as Gary Ridgway, the 'Green River Killer' who pleaded guilty this month to murdering 48 prostitutes and runaways in the Seattle area."

Raelians spouting more bullshit
London Evening Standard | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The controversial cult which claims to have cloned five babies says it has discovered a way of reversing the ageing process. The Raelian sect believes it can use stem cells to turn back the clock on any part of the body. It says it has already carried out experiments which involve shortening ageing human DNA, which stretches over time... Clonaid claimed last year that a cloned baby girl named Eve had been born on 26 December. Dr Boisselier promised that full scientific proof would be offered, but later claimed the parents backed away through fear of exposure in the media. Today she revealed the existence of a 'second generation' of clones whose mothers are now in the final stages of pregnancy."

Moussaoui screws himself out of self representation
Wire Services | Submitted by: agentX
"A federal judge on Friday said accused Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui could no longer represent himself because he had violated her orders by filing repetitive motions with contemptuous language... Earlier this year Moussaoui said in a filing that he wanted to torture U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. 'Ashcroft must be sent to Alexandria jail so I can torture him. After all torture is now part of the American way of life,' Moussaoui wrote in February."

Bush grants interview to British tabloid
Washington Post | Submitted by: wingnut
"After coming to office with a vow to restore dignity to the White House, the President yesterday... granted an exclusive interview to a British tabloid that features daily photographs of nude women and articles akin to those found in our own National Enquirer... A British journalist for a more highbrow outlet was not about to let that slip by unnoticed. 'Just to clarify,' he asked, 'why has the President chosen to do an interview with the Sun? It's a newspaper which publishes daily pictures of topless women.' ... Bush, meanwhile, has given no solo interviews this year to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Time or Newsweek. And he hasn't given an exclusive interview in his entire presidency to the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe and dozens of other major publications."

Another SARS outbreak just around the corner
CNN | Submitted by: jimbo
"Scientists believe severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, emerged from the animal markets of southern China a year ago this month, and with fall coming, fears that the virus will make a comeback are brewing. Dogs, cats, rabbits, badgers and other animals are sold to be eaten as delicacies in these markets, where scientists think the SARS virus jumped from animals to humans, possibly from a wild civet cat. At its peak, more than 8,000 people in more than 25 countries were infected by SARS and more than 700 died, according to the World Health Organization."

Subway stunt kills two drunken idiots
New York Daily News | Submitted by: Janey G.
"A boozy night on the town turned tragic for two Bronx college students yesterday when they took a joyride on the roof of an elevated subway train - and smacked into a metal bridge. Chris Loughrey, 22, a junior at SUNY Maritime College, was killed and classmate Brian Hochstetter, 21, was gravely injured in the 'skylarking' accident - the second in a month. Two friends of the victims watched the senseless stunt unfold as the No. 6 train approached the Whitlock Ave. station in the Bronx."

Girl attends skinhead party, receives unwanted tattoos
Peoria Journal-Star | Submitted by: Vlad
"The teen told police she remembers asking for the first two tattoos - the initials of a Chicago street gang tattooed to her belly and the first name of a dead punk rocker tattooed to her back - but after drinking and doing drugs, she didn't remember agreeing to have the names of five people at the party tattooed on her buttocks... Campbell drew up a design of the letters 'CMS,' representing the Chi Town Mafia Skinheads, a Chicago street gang, and the teen girl agreed to having the tattoo applied. After Campbell was done, the teen told him she wanted another one, police reports said. The girl asked to have 'SID' tattooed on the small of her back, referring to Sid Vicious." And then things got somewhat out of hand.

Mexican forced into prostitution
New York Daily News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A Mexican teen who came to New York looking for her mother tearfully told a Brooklyn jury yesterday that she was beaten, raped and forced into prostitution by a man she thought would help her... 'I was very afraid,' said the woman, recounting one incident in which Perez allegedly raped and sodomized her and a 19-year-old woman in a one-room Brooklyn apartment. As he allegedly beat her afterward, she recounted, 'He said ugly things, that I was a whore, that I was so stupid when he tricked me into coming to the United States.'"

GOP leaders assfucking soft money limits
New York Times | Submitted by: Disgusted Canadian in Minnesota
"It is an unusual charity brochure: a 13-page document, complete with pictures of fireworks and a golf course, that invites potential donors to give as much as $500,000 to spend time with Tom DeLay during the Republican convention in New York City next summer - and to have part of the money go to help abused and neglected children... But aides to Mr. DeLay, the House majority leader from Texas, acknowledged that part of the money would go to pay for late-night convention parties, a luxury suite during President Bush's speech at Madison Square Garden and yacht cruises. And so campaign finance watchdogs say Mr. DeLay's effort can be seen as, above all, a creative maneuver around the recently enacted law meant to limit the ability of federal officials to raise large donations known as soft money."

Dumbass gets zoo wolf killed
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: SpecialK
"A wolf was killed Wednesday at the Brookfield Zoo after biting a woman's arm in a restricted area of the zoo, officials said. The woman was visiting the near west suburban zoo when she went off the public walkway, crossed a barrier and put her hand through a chain-link fence guarding a northern gray wolf, according to zoo officials. The wolf, the only one on exhibit at the zoo, grabbed the woman's arm and would not release her. The zoo's police responded immediately and an officer killed the wolf at the scene when it was clear the animal wouldn't let the woman go."
