    MSNBC might want to put some of its graphics producers through basic physics classes again.   During a brief report on Sunday’s epic Felix Baumgartner sky-dive from the stratosphere, during which the native Austrian broke the sound barrier, the cable network mistakenly labeled his feat as having traveled “faster than the speed of light.”    Despite the mistaken chyron, host Andrea Mitchell correctly reported that “Fearless Felix” was the first human to travel faster than the speed of sound without being inside a craft of some sort.

    A Manhattan attorney who was unsuccessfully prosecuted for advising 10 nurses that they could quit their jobs at a Long Island nursing facility has joined the nurses in filing a federal civil rights suit against the operator of the facility and Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota. The suit was filed in the Eastern District on Wednesday and claims that a March 2007 criminal indictment brought by Mr. Spota's office violated the constitutional rights of attorney Felix Vinluan and his clients, including freedom of speech and due process. Mr. Spota had accused Mr. Vinluan and the nurses of conspiring to...

    BERLIN – Usain Bolt got the birthday present he wanted from his teammates at the world championships on Friday, and Allyson Felix spoiled the party by ending Jamaica's sprint domination. After the Jamaican relay team qualified for the 4x100 final without Bolt on the track, Felix glided to the finish with an elegance reminiscent of a long distance runner to win her third straight 200-meter world title. With a raised fist and little more than a smile at the finish, Felix broke the Jamaican hold on sprinting going back to the Beijing Olympics. She held off an early charge from...

    A top lieutenant in the Arellano Felix drug cartel was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday for his role in the notorious cartel's reign of murder, torture and drug smuggling along the border. Manuel Arturo Villarreal Heredia had pleaded guilty in September to charges of racketeering and conspiracy to invest drug profits. He also agreed to forfeit $5 million. Villarreal pleaded guilty along with Javier Arellano Felix, who pleaded guilty to operating a criminal enterprise and was sentenced to life in prison. At one point both men faced the possibility of the death penalty, but former Attorney General Alberto...

  • Mexican cartel leader sentenced to six years in U.S. prison (Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix)

    A judge has sentenced one of seven brothers behind Mexico's Arellano Felix (ah-RAY'-ah-no FAY'-leeks) drug cartel to serve six years in a U.S. prison. Fifty-seven-year-old Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix is the eldest of the clan. He was extradited to the U.S. after serving a decade in a Mexican prison on weapons violations. Arellano Felix's sentencing Monday follows his guilty plea in June to charges that he sold about a half-pound of cocaine to a San Diego undercover police officer in 1980. His younger brother, Francisco Javier Arellano Felix, pleaded guilty last month to laundering money and running a criminal enterprise....

    Does your cat always seem to end up in the lap of the one visitor to your home who's allergic? Or maybe it's the one visitor who doesn't like cats? Why is it that, very often, your cat-loving visitors get passed over for the one person who doesn't want to interact with Fluffy? Most cats are friendly to everyone who comes through the front door, but other cats are very concerned with potential territorial intrusion. These cats don't necessarily want somebody barging right over to pick them up and interact. So while your cat-loving visitors may be just trying to...

    The Law: We doubt anyone's facing worse charges in U.S. courts than drug lord Francisco Javier Arellano Felix. So why is the Justice Department hesitating to suggest the death penalty? To put it delicately, this guy's a monster. Apprehended in August by the Drug Enforcement Administration in international waters off Baja California, Arellano was charged in U.S. federal court in San Diego on Wednesday in a string of grotesque crimes on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. The seven-count indictment covers crimes mostly connected to operating a continuing criminal enterprise. He's also charged with murder. But that seems only to...

    The Border: It takes a lot of nerve for a chief of state to criticize another nation's crime rate. It takes even more nerve to ship one's own criminals there and then complain about the crime rate. Two weeks ago, when U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Tony Garza warned tactfully about an explosion of crime on the Mexican border and urged U.S. citizens to be cautious there, he was only doing his job. But it didn't take long for Mexican President Vicente Fox and Foreign Minister Ernesto Derbez to jump all over the U.S., piously claiming that crime at the border...

    MEXICO CITY - Mexican prosecutors announced Saturday that they have charged two policemen with protecting the Arellano Felix drug trafficking gang, whose alleged kingpin was recently arrested by the U.S. Coast Guard. Large numbers of Mexican police officers are believed to have helped the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix gang move tons of Colombian cocaine and Mexican marijuana to the United States, but few officials have been charged. Officers Jorge Alberto Perez and Salvador Cebreros face organized crime charges and also are being investigated for involvement in the killing of four of their colleagues, who were shot dead in July, the attorney...

    MEXICO CITY — Reputed drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has launched a bloody offensive to control drug smuggling along the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Attorney General Daniel Cabeza de Vaca said today. Mexico's top law enforcement official said Guzman was behind a wave of violence that has killed hundreds of suspected smugglers, hit men, police, soldiers and civilians along the 2,000-mile border. "Definitely, he is the most active man in his group. He is trying to fight for the border corridors, trying to control places like Culiacan just like the rest of the communities of Sinaloa (state), and the border...

Years earlier, Madison's wife had thrown him out, requesting that he never return. Can two divorced men share an apartment without driving each other crazy???"
