This Time, There Is Every Reason To Believe Michael Brown

"Like an imprisoned drug dealer on a witness stand, Michael Brown is not exactly in a position to give credible testimony.

National Shoot a Hunter Day?

I think we need a new holiday. Here's why:

"Duck survives two days in fridge

A duck in the US state of Florida has survived gunshot wounds and a two-day stint in a refrigerator.

A hunter shot the duck, wounding it in the wing and leg. Believing the bird was dead, he left it in his fridge at his home in Tallahassee.

The hunter's wife got a fright when she opened the fridge and the duck lifted its head, a local veterinarian said."

Columnist Art Buchwald dead at 81

"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Art Buchwald, who took humorous jabs at Washington politicians in syndicated columns for decades, has died, a close friend said Thursday. He was 81.

Buchwald died late Wednesday, said CNN anchor Kyra Phillips. Buchwald was her mentor for 18 years, and she became a close friend of the family. The unofficial cause of death, she said, was kidney failure."
