    Nearly 48 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, fresh audio evidence from that fateful day has surfaced. The evidence comes in the form of the original reel-to-reel Air Force One radio recording, containing conversations between officials on the plane, the White House situation room, and others. The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed. The tape contains never-before-heard conversations between the presidential aircraft and the White House and immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. It was held privately for years by President Kennedy’s military aide at the time, Chester...

    Richard Hyle says his military training from WWII helped him resist a robber recently. When you've struggled to regain control of a plane spiraling 20,000 feet over Italy, there's not a lot left to be afraid of, says 82-year-old Richard Hyle of Clifton.  So when a robber burst into a local newspaper store two years ago, the decorated veteran wasn't about to give in without a fight.  "A guy comes in with his sleeve over his hand, like he has a gun," recalled Hyle, sitting in his living room as he flips through an album of photos from his...

    While Katrina relief has now jumbled the numbers, the rapidly declining federal deficit projections this past summer revealed a critical challenge for national economic policy making. Once again, they showed that the scoring of the effects of major policy changes performed by the Office of Management and Budget and the Congressional Budget Office were highly erroneous. The errors were not random. They were strongly and consistently biased against pro-market, pro-growth reforms, and they are the long-recognized results of outdated methodologies employed by federal scoring agencies. The end result is that such errors greatly hamper or prevent Congress from adopting policies...

    A 16-year-old girl who had been missing since Saturday was found stabbed to death and dismembered — and police say her killer lived right next door. Jonathan Zarate, 18, appeared Monday in Morris County Court to face charges of murder, weapons offenses, and hindering apprehension in the slaying of Jennifer Parks. Zarate lived next door to Parks in their Randolph, N.J., neighborhood, and prosecutors say the 16-year-old victim left her house early Saturday morning to watch TV with Zarate. But then, authorities said, the two became embroiled in an argument that led to Parks' gruesome killing.

    A RIGHT TO KNOW As a lifelong consumer of the written word displayed on paper, the prospect of talking to readers by way of a "blog" is a little unnerving. I've decided to tip toe into these electronic waters because I recognize that to ignore change is to be consumed by it. At The Plain Dealer we communicate with our readers a number of ways, the pages of the paper being the most obvious. But the "how to reach us" box on 2A lists e-mail addresses and phone numbers for senior editors and similar information appears at the bottom of...
