    Another month, another White House catchphrase. “Pass this bill” looks to have been retired by White House message-makers. The heyday for President Obama’s three-word exhortation came in September, after he put forward his $447-billion jobs plan. Speech after speech, Obama commanded lawmakers to “pass this bill.’’ Day after day, Congress refused. With the impasse in its seventh week, the White House is trying a different approach, encapsulated in a new three-word slogan that is part plea, part battle cry. “We can’t wait.’’

    You might think Mike Hinton's anger had ebbed in the 3-1/2 decades since, as a young Harris County assistant district attorney, he was assigned to prosecute Ronald Clark O'Bryan, the father accused of poisoning his own son's Halloween candy. Or that, in the 25 years since O'Bryan was executed by the State of Texas, Hinton would prefer to let the past dissolve into receding memories. You'd be wrong, though. "I never get tired of talking about that sorry-ass son of a bitch," said Hinton, today an attorney in private practice in Houston.

    (edit) Federal agents raided Johnson's four offices and his home Wednesday and carried off hundreds of boxes, including the charts for the clinic's 6,000 patients. They want to know more about his billing practices and the prescriptions he writes. "I may not appear shocked," Johnson said. "I was shocked then, but for me it's just another in a series of what I view as harassment." A 52-page search warrant unsealed late Friday says patients knew Johnson as "candy man," an easy touch for drug seeking addicts. He rarely examined his patients, according to several former employees and patients. And...

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Amsterdam will get a theme park dedicated to chocolate and inspired by Roald Dahl's children's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," city officials and entrepreneurs said Thursday. Just like Dahl's fictional "Chocolate Factory" owned by Willy Wonka, the main part of the "sweets park" will be located underground, in a disused railway tunnel which was handed over by the city of Amsterdam in a ceremony Thursday. The attraction, which is expected to open to the public in two to three years, will feature a glass elevator and a chocolate fountain, similar to the book. It will also...

    By ROXANA HEGEMAN, Associated Press Writer 6 minutes ago BTK suspect Dennis Rader pleaded guilty Monday to 10 counts of first-degree murder, admitting in a chillingly matter-of-fact voice to a series of slayings that terrorized the city beginning in the 1970s. Rader, 60, of Park City, entered the guilty pleas as his trial was scheduled to begin Monday. Referring to his victims as "projects," Rader laid out for the court how he would "troll" for victims on his off-time, then stalk them and kill them. "I had never strangled anyone before, so I really didn't know how much pressure you...

Nobody saw Cordon fall and it was unknown how long he was submerged before he was found, Hatfield Township police detective Patrick M. Hanrahan said. Hanrahan said foul play was not suspected and the...
