Doctors in New York have removed a woman’s gallbladder with instruments passed through her vagina, a technique they hope will cause less pain and scarring than the usual operation, and allow a quicker recovery. The technique can eliminate the need to cut through abdominal muscles, a major source of pain after surgery.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is “lost,” triggering an angry backlash by Republicans, who said the top Democrat had turned his back on the troops. The bleak assessment—the most pointed yet from Reid—came as the House voted 215-199 to uphold legislation ordering troops out of Iraq next year.
One word: P-R-I-C-K!

Arlette, as she is known universally in France, as if she were a rock or movie star, speaks smoothly. Her pitch has barely changed since her first campaign, as an unknown bank clerk in 1981.

With a backlash developing against the media for airing sickening pictures from Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung-Hui, Fox News Channel said Thursday it would stop and other networks said they would severely limit their use.

House Democratic leaders this afternoon adopted an “aggressive” blueprint for making the U.S. Capitol “carbon neutral,” including a recommendation the government buy carbon credits to offset greenhouse gas emissions estimated to equal 17,000 cars.
With as much hot air that comes out of that building, they could power a large sized city all by themselves. I actually thought there was a little intelligence in D.C. Evidently, I was completely wrong! Beam me up…no intelligent life here!
