    CHRIS RUSSELL | dispatch Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann said he is "disappointed" and "heartbroken" over his behavior and took full responsibility. But he refused to resign. The ensuing scandal first reported by The Dispatch last month cost four people their jobs, including two of Dann's closest friends from Youngstown. Shaken but still defiant, Dann, a Democrat elected in 2006, said he would not resign -- and said he never considered doing so -- despite the expanding fallout from a sex scandal that has rocked his office for the past month.

    Terri Schiavo's CT scan – another physician’s opinion March 31st, 2005 The amount of medical misinformation put out about Terri Schiavo has been truly stunning. The testimony of Terri’s physicians who believe that some recovery is possible has been largely dismissed. Judge Greer’s court and the media in turn, have focused only on the pessimistic interpretations of the raw data of her CT scan.

There is some cerebral atrophy, but it is a completely inaccurate to characterize it as “bag...

    This morning, 02 Sep 04, I went to a Kerry-Edwards event in Parkersburg, W.Va., which featured James Rassman, Kerry's main Swift Boat supporter. They've been doing this around W. Va. this week. I spoke to Rassman shortly after he arrived at the site (Veterans' Memorial in the City Park) and before the event began. I stood next to a couple of media attendees - one print, one radio - and had my trusty tape-recorder with me. I know the drill from my newspaper work. At an appropriate point, I asked Rassman why Kerry would not sign a Standard Form 180...
