New federal statistics provide powerful evidence that the sharp drop in hormone use by menopausal women that began in 2002 caused a dramatic decline in breast cancer cases, according to an analysis being published Thursday.
I took those hormone thingys for many years, for a good reason which I won’t get into now. I finally had it, and weaned off them. Not easy, let me tell you, but well worth it. There are herbal types pills that are a great substitute, at least in my experience. Perhaps, with the drop in HRT and incidents of breast cancer, many others have had success too?
President Bush sparred across the table with Democratic congressional leaders opposed to the Iraq war on Wednesday in a prelude to a veto showdown over a conflict that has claimed the lives of more than 3,200 U.S. troops.
Ya know what would be nice? If both the President and Congressional leaders would agree on a new direction. Instead of using our military as police, or packing up and leaving, how ’bout we start looking towards actually winning and then leave?
Former Sen. Fred Thompson met with more than 50 U.S. House members this afternoon and his Tennessee colleagues were left believing more than ever that he will run for president.
“He was called presidential and he was. He was called electable and he is,” Rep. Zach Wamp, R-Chattanooga, said after the meeting at the Republican Club of Capitol Hill.
Cool! Now, do NOT disappoint us Fred!
Pleasant View Elementary School in Golden received two separate bomb threats today. At about 12:35 p.m., the school received a threat, prompting officials to evacuate the students. After a search of the school, the students returned to their classes.
An elementary school? This copycat nonsense is getting out of hand.
Britain and America threatened yesterday to impose new sanctions on Khartoum after a United Nations report accused Sudan of disguising its military planes and helicopters as UN aircraft and using them to attack villages in Darfur.
I get the impression the head honcho in Sudan is not going to be shaking in his boots. I wonder if the Useless Numnuts are going to issue a “strongly worded” warning?
American’s pilots expressed frustration over the fact that their bosses – 874 executives and certain key employees – stand to collect more than $160 million in stock.
I can understand their frustration, but are they aware that the stock can lose value and the execs will end up with zip? Granted, I’m more inclined to side with the pilots on this one. Having your pay cut and then to see the ones who cut it with a few hundred grand each would chap my hide too.
The state Ethics Board filed a complaint today against Supreme Court Justice-elect Annette Ziegler, saying she improperly acted while a Washington County Circuit Court judge on five cases involving a bank for which her husband is a director.
I thought this issue had already been resolved. Guess I was wrong.
Two students at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville — who say they are deeply Christian and believe homosexuality is immoral — brought their complaint to federal court. They wanted to wear the T-shirts a day after the Gay/Straight Alliance holds a day of silence today. Last year, one of the students who filed the complaint wore a “Be Straight, Not Gay” T-shirt and the school wanted the “not gay” stricken.
Isn’t this like a free speech issue? When I was in high school, way back in the dark ages, we weren’t allowed to wear anything with any kind of printing on it, it was a rule, and we had no problem. My, how times have changed.
