‘Happy Birthday to You’ Copyright ‘Owners’ Finally Being Sued for Millions

    Bush Caves on Torture Rules

    Only last week, the president drew a line in the sand over his proposed interrogation rules, threatening to cancel the CIA interrogation program altogether if a trio of rebellious Republicans refused to pass his version.  In a total reversal, the Bush administration has reestablished talks with the defiant senators, hoping to work out a deal and pass the stalled legislation.
