Bush Afflicted by Non-Cancerous Moles

The president has had two benign growths removed from his temple, the latest of several sun-exposure moles he’s had to deal with. Perhaps if he spent less time clearing brush in Crawford, both Bush’s face and the nation would be in better working order.

Who Are You Calling a Gas Guzzler?

Although California has a reputation for smog-choked freeways and self-indulgent excess, the Golden State consumes less energy per capita than any other state in the union. What’s the secret? A combination of tough regulation and high prices.

Casualties From the Battle Over PTSD

Pvt. Jacob Burgoyne was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and ordered to a psychiatric facility, but the Army sent him home instead. Shortly thereafter, Burgoyne stabbed a fellow soldier 32 times and set his body aflame because, he said, “that’s how we disposed of bodies in Iraq.”
