    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — A writer desperate to get a movie script read suffered the ultimate rejection Thursday when police blew up a briefcase he said contained the screenplay after an agent refused to read it, police said. The bizarre story was set in Beverly Hills, where a man visited the office of a literary agent and left behind a briefcase that he said contained a computer, police Sgt. Brad Cornelius said. The man left instructions for it to be delivered to someone at the business, who told another person in the office, "This guy's been kind of pestering me...

    Police in Delaware are slowly piecing together the details surrounding the death of former presidential advisor John P. "Jack" Wheeler III.

He was last seen alive at 3:30 p.m. Thursday near the Hotel duPont parking garage at 10th and Orange streets. Iman Goldsborough, the parking lot attendant, encountered a man she believes was Wheeler on Wednesday night near the intersection where he was last officially seen Thursday. Goldsborough...

    HOUSTON — One evening two winters ago, a man in Staten Island, N.Y., absent-mindedly flipped through his mail. Inside one envelope was a stack of fake documents, including United Nations (news - web sites) and Defense Department identification cards, and a note: "We would hate to have this fall into the wrong hands."

    Less than 48 hours after he was taken into custody, U.S. military officials say that Saddam Hussein's capture has already produced an "intelligence windfall" of new information on Iraq's insurgent movement. Speaking to reporters Monday morning, Brig. Gen. Mark Hurtling said, "Intelligence stemming from Saddam's arrest has led soldiers to capture several other top regime figures and uncover rebel cells in Baghdad." The new information came from a briefcase of documents that the deposed Iraqi dictator was reportedly carrying when he was caught, according to MSNBC. Hurtling told reporters that, based on the find, U.S. officials now believe Saddam was...

    THE MAN WITH THE BRIEFCASEby Robert N. Going In early June yet another anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre passed with barely a notice.  How blithely we forget those tens of thousands of brave Chinese people who in peaceful defiance of their autocratic state met in the Spring of 1989 to celebrate the concept of Freedom, raised a statue to the Goddess of Democracy (an homage to our own ?Liberty Enlightening the World?) and were rewarded with tanks, and guns and death. China has always fascinated me, but more so since meeting my brother?s father-in-law, Charlie Chow. Charlie was...
