Cherokees Oust Slave Descendants

The Cherokee nation has voted against recognizing the descendants of former slaves, despite a tribal supreme court ruling to the contrary last year. Of the estimated 250,000 to 270,000 members, 8,700 took part in the election.

Having Your Bomb and Eating It Too

For the first time in two decades, the United States will produce a new design of the hydrogen bomb.

Plame Ready for Close-Up

Variety reported Friday that Warner Bros. has bought the “life rights” (a somewhat alarming term) of former CIA agent Valerie Plame and her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, and plans to make a movie about their lives.
