    Tampa, Florida -- When the Florida Highway Patrol pulls someone over on the highway, it's usually because they were speeding.

Campbell says he did what he always does: flashed his lights on and off to warn drivers coming from the other direction that there was speed trap ahead. According to Campbell, 60 seconds after passing...

    Insanity, by one definition, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Although widely attributed to Albert Einstein, this observation could just as well been uttered by someone watching the Sacramento scene. When Gray Davis was elected governor nine years ago, the state was suffering from an embarrassment of riches. Capital-gains tax proceeds from what would be known as the dot-com bubble provided consecutive annual surpluses of $6 billion, $10 billion and, finally, $12 billion. --snip-- While serving out the remaining three years of Davis' second term, Schwarzenegger made a good-faith effort to put the state...

Haddock of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in Moss Landing, Calif. Three of the animals were found by scientists using a remote controlled research vehicle at depths of between 5,200 feet and 7,500 feet off the coast of California. The discovery...
