Woman murdered, fetus ripped from womb
KOTV-TV 6 Tulsa | Submitted by: Savage Asylum
"Sometime last Monday night, they believe Goodson drove the victim to a remote field about 20 miles south of Okemah. They say the victim had been shot once in the head, and her baby had been cut out of her stomach with a sharp object, possibly a razor blade. 'Miss Goodson came to the hospital with a deceased fetus she had given birth to, no reason to doubt that, she was treated as woman who had just given birth.' But her story fell apart when medical personnel realized Goodson showed no signs of delivery... Deputies say Goodsen told her husband and her friends she was pregnant. 'The story is around the community that she was pregnant, and had a baby shower, and she was having a baby boy, that was what we found during our investigation that she told people that.' ... Hughes County prosecutors charged Effie Goodson Monday afternoon with 2 counts of murder, one for the mother, another for the unborn child."

FBI now targeting people with almanacs
San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: f00f
"The FBI is warning police nationwide to be alert for people carrying almanacs, cautioning that the popular reference books covering everything from abbreviations to weather trends could be used for terrorist planning... 'The practice of researching potential targets is consistent with known methods of al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations that seek to maximize the likelihood of operational success through careful planning,' the FBI wrote. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the bulletin this week and verified its authenticity."

Bremer vs. Blair on Iraq's weapon labs
Lycos | Submitted by: Katie
"The US civil administrator for Iraq Paul Bremer denied the existence of laboratories in Iraq making weapons of mass destruction for which British Prime Minister Tony Blair says US-led teams have massive evidence... Bremer said: 'I don't know where those words come from but that is not what (Iraq Survey Group chief) David Kay has said.' The US-led Iraq Survey Group is hunting for weapons of mass destruction. 'I have read (Kay's) reports so I don't know who said that,' Bremer said... 'It sounds like a bit of a red herring to me,' the American continued. 'It sounds like someone who doesn't agree with the policy sets up a red herring then knocks it down.' But Bremer retreated when told the claims were made by none other than President George W. Bush's staunchest ally Blair... Blair said this month the Iraq Survey Group had found 'massive evidence of a huge system of clandestine laboratories' in Iraq."

40,000 servicemen trapped in the military
Washington Post | Submitted by: Me Love Rotten
"On their Army paychecks, the expiration date of their military service is now listed sometime after 2030 - the payroll computer's way of saying, 'Who knows?' The three are among thousands of soldiers forbidden to leave military service under the Army's 'stop-loss' orders, intended to stanch the seepage of troops, through retirement and discharge, from a military stretched thin by its burgeoning overseas missions. 'It reflects the fact that the military is too small, which nobody wants to admit,' said Charles Moskos of Northwestern University, a leading military sociologist... Through a series of stop-loss orders, the Army alone has blocked the possible retirements and departures of more than 40,000 soldiers, about 16,000 of them National Guard and reserve members who were eligible to leave the service this year. Hundreds more in the Air Force, Navy and Marines were briefly blocked from retiring or departing the military at some point this year."

Hacker strikes electronic voting firm
MSNBC | Submitted by: Kaiser Wilhelm
"A company developing encryption-based software for secure electronic voting has itself become the victim of a computer break-in... The intrusion into Bellevue-based VoteHereís corporate network occurred in October, said Jim Adler, VoteHereís founder, president and chief executive officer. No suspects have yet been named, but Adler said his company, in cooperation with investigators, had developed substantial information about the source of the intrusion over the past two months. 'We feel that it may have been politically motivated,'†Adler said. Adlerís revelation came amid a deepening debate over e-voting and its vulnerability to election fraud†- and a controversy over surreptitious methods to get information about how e-voting software works."

Wannabe bi-girls ruining the term "bisexual"
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The trend is known as 'bisexual chic,' or in many cases, 'faux bisexual.' It usually starts with some hand-holding or grinding on the dance floor, then progresses from there... Toby Hill-Meyer, a University of Oregon student doing his master's on how people identify their own sexuality, says that because of 'bisexual chic' many 'true' bisexuals resist identifying with that word anymore. 'They don't want to be associated with that trendiness.'"

Bible Belt missionaries set out on a 'war for souls' in Iraq
London Telegraph | Submitted by: fenstensler
"American Christian missionaries have declared a 'war for souls' in Iraq, telling supporters that the formal end of the US-led occupation next June will close an historic 'window of opportunity.' Organising in secrecy, and emphasising their humanitarian aid work, Christian groups are pouring into the country, which is 97% Muslim, bearing Arabic Bibles, videos and religious tracts designed to 'save' Muslims from their 'false' religion... The missionaries are mainly evangelicals who reject talk of Muslims and Christians worshipping the same God. Jerry Vines, former head of the Southern Baptist Convention, has described the Prophet Mohammed as a 'demon-obsessed paedophile.' Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and the head of Samaritan's Purse, a big donor to Iraq, has described Islam as a 'very evil and wicked religion.'"

Life once again imitates The Simpsons
AutoWeek | Submitted by: Soylent
"The J-Bird represented a step away from traditional Detroit thinking. The J-Bird's problem, according to a Ford design employee who begged for anonymity, was that it was 'a giant step from reality'... The clamshell roof, made of tinted Lexan, is reminiscent of, well, nothing we've ever seen. While most automotive roofs are designed to resist penetration by rain, this one makes moisture an integral part of the driving experience. That quibble aside, our only problem with the clamshell top design is that it will not allow real wind-in-the-face motoring. Attempting to drive the car with its top in the open position would doubtless result in aerodynamic forces bringing the car to a virtual halt." [See episode 7F16: "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"]
