    OSAKA — Explosions at a chemical plant in Hyogo Prefecture on Saturday killed a firefighter and injured dozens of people, the Japan Times reported, citing local fire department and police officials said.

The first explosion occurred about 2:40 p.m. as firefighters were spraying an acrylic acid tank with water, and the second followed shortly...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The former astronaut at the center of a love triangle that featured a bizarre airport assault by his former astronaut girlfriend on his new love interest was the pilot who survived a small plane crash last month in rural Alaska, federal officials said Friday. Bill Oefelein piloted the shuttle Discovery in December 2006. Two months later, his former girlfriend, Lisa Nowak, raced the 900 miles from Houston to the Orlando airport to confront Colleen Shipman, wearing an astronaut diaper so that she wouldn't have to stop and she donned a wig and trench coat as Shipman...
  • On private property, a sign depicting Obama in a diaper: “Change me! I stink!”

    OK, confession: When I saw this headline on Drudge, I actually laughed out loud. Something about the word “stink” is just funny to me. And I had no reason not to laugh because I generally agree with the sentiment the sign expresses: Obama is a master at making excuses, which does come across as a little, well, babyish. In other words, the sign doesn’t offend me.

    NEW ORLEANS -- An Uptown neighborhood was clogged with cars Wednesday morning as 60 people showed up outside a home on Calhoun Street, demanding the removal of a sign of President Barack Obama in a diaper mounted on a fence. The people gathered outside the home just off St. Charles Avenue said they came to express their frustrations over the "offensive" poster. In the crowd was former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, and he said he already talked to homeowner Timmy Riley -- but the sign hasn't been removed. Many residents said the poster is distasteful and disrespectful to the...

    Looks like the AFL-CIO is no longer even trying to hide the fact that it no longer sports a traditionally American political outlook. The labor union has announced that it is joining a voter registration drive called One Nation Working Together. This coalition is filled with some of the most extremely leftist groups in America today including the ACLU, Enviro extremists, La Raza, Code Pink, various anti-war groups, and the Communist Party USA. This new move by the AFL-CIO finds hearty support from the People's World newspaper, a publication dedicated to communism and the "direct descendent" of the communist Daily...

    CLEVELAND - An Ohio murderer who spit on a jury returned to court, this time, with a plastic diaper on his face! Neil Simpson appeared in an Elyria court wearing mosquito netting along with the diaper around his head. The convicted murderer told the judge he'd rather be executed then spend the rest of his life in jail. "I have two ways that I prefer to be murdered, one is to be crucified in front of the courthouse for all to see it, for all the convicts throughout the world, and the other way would be to be stoned to...

The complaint said Makuski entered the house because he likes to wear diapers and thought there might be some in the...

    Japan holds diaper fashion show -- for adults Friday 26th September, 05:33 AM JST TOKYO — One after the other, the models strutted across the stage to bouncy ‘80s dance tunes, all showing off designs of the same article of clothing—adult diapers. Japan has one of the world’s most rapidly aging societies, and the fashion show Thursday proved the country’s diaper producers are intent on keeping the elderly clean and dry. “Diapers are something that people don’t want to look at,” said Kiyoko Hamada of the Aging Lifestyle Research Center, a leading organizer of the show. “But if you make...

    Orlando, Fla. (AP) -- An attorney for a former astronaut wanted to set the record straight Friday: Lisa Nowak didn't wear diapers during the 950-mile road trip to confront a romantic rival. "The biggest lie in this preposterous tale that has been told is that my client drove from Houston, Texas, to Orlando, Florida, nonstop, wearing a diaper," Donald Lykkebak said after filing motions to suppress evidence in Nowak's criminal case. "That is an absolute fabrication." The tidbit that Nowak wore diapers during her trip was written in the police report filed after Nowak's arrest in February. The diaper detail...

Police say the man walks into the bathroom wearing plain clothes, then walks out wearing the diaper and goes into the store. Officers say in some cases, the man exposes himself to the attendant. In others, he just stands around in the diaper, talking. Witnesses says the...

    (CNSNews.com) - As environmentalists celebrate the 34th annual Earth Day, some in the green movement are now advocating "diaper-free" babies to help save the planet. Citing concerns about plastic disposable diapers clogging landfills and the amount of washing and detergents that cloth diapers require, many environmentalists are taking a page from tribal cultures and seeking to eliminate the use of the baby diapers altogether. The green movement is now promoting diaperless babies as a "retro, cutting-edge, environmentally friendly scheme" to mothers throughout the industrialized world. The green movement already has declared war on the modern flush toilet, declaring it an...

    Marc Edwards could not be more appalled as he watches President Bush push ahead with plans for war. If the United States invades Iraq, a disproportionate number of blacks will be among the troops, said the 45-year-old Harlem resident. Other minorities will be the war's victims, he said, adding that black families will be especially hard hit by its costs. "It's a war that's threatening to send this economy reeling and that's going to really hurt black people," Edwards, a bookstore marketing supervisor, said while standing on 125th Street.
