    When Frank Braswell saw the story about a section of Jordan Lake park being closed because of sexual shenanigans in the bushes, he had to read it several times before it sank in. It was surprising enough that the area had become a hot spot for gay men seeking quick hookups -- the Triangle's version of an infamous men's room in the Minneapolis airport. Jordan Lake, on the border of Chatham and Orange counties, is just a bit more remote than an international air terminal.

    Duncan Hunter: His [Mitt Romney] company Bane Capital, is partnering with a Chinese company, a Chinese defense contractor, called the Wah-Way corporation, which helped Saddam Hussein set up his air defenses against American pilots, and Bane Capital is partnering with that outlawed Chinese defense contractor to buy an American defense contractor. You may know about that proposed deal, it's right now before the commitee on foreign investment... Duncan Hunter: I think its a security problem, and I think it is a real disservice to the two and a half million Americans. I think Mitt Romney is a no go for...

    October 26, 2006 A New Campaign Tactic: Manipulating Google Data By TOM ZELLER Jr. If things go as planned for liberal bloggers in the next few weeks, searching Google for “Jon Kyl,” the Republican senator from Arizona now running for re-election, will produce high among the returns a link to an April 13 article from The Phoenix New Times, an alternative weekly.Mr. Kyl “has spent his time in Washington kowtowing to the Bush administration and the radical right,” the article suggests, “very often to the detriment of Arizonans.”Searching Google for “Peter King,” the Republican congressman from Long Island, would bring...

    DURHAM - Robert Henn began making changes as soon as he walked through the door at Liquidia Technologies. Three months after he signed on as chief technology officer, the Durham company is holding fewer meetings and brainstorming more. In the time it used to take to perfect one experiment, the scientists now perform several. "No experiment is a failure," said Luke Roush, Liquidia's director of business development. As a result of that attitude, prototypes are now made in three to four days, rather than a month. And Henn, a chemist, is often in the laboratory, working alongside the nine scientists...

    It was tough for the Pack's Julius Hodge to take. In what could be his last appearance in the RBC Center, the senior was punched in the groin by Paul in the first half, an ugly incident that resulted in Hodge's older brother, Steve, being escorted from the court by a policeman. "That's just a dirty play," Hodge said. "That was uncalled for." Paul denied he hit Hodge intentionally, saying it was a "heat-of-the-game" kind of play. But Evtimov didn't think so. "That's as bad as someone in boxing hitting [blow the waist]," Evtimov said. "It's one thing to grab...
