  • YouTube: Man kisses chicken on NY subway, derided for fowl behaviour (video at source)

    A hen-pecked man kissed and cuddled a chicken on the floor of a New York subway carriage, ruffling the feathers of his fellow passengers. Commuters on the uptown No.6 train scatter as the unnamed man rolls around on the floor of the carriage with the chicken. It’s not surprising that no one egged on the man’s antics, as only service animals and those in containers are allowed in the Big Apple’s subway system. Of course, the plucky character’s tomfoolery could all be a prank. After all, he was filmed doing it… We’ll keep you posted.

Byrd may wear a Republican bulls-eye the senator atop the GOP's electoral hit list for 2006. But in Sophia, the town of 1,301 he left for Congress some 52 years ago, he is still very much the favorite son. ``He's always trying to help us out,'' said Shawn Stines, a 26-year-old mechanic, as he stuffed a dryer at the Sophia Laundromat. ``I like him. He's a good guy.'' Outside Priddy's Hardware Store, 64-year-old Frances Meredith is even more emphatic. ``I love him,'' Meredith said....

    The Herald-Dispatch ^ | March 17, 2005 | Raju Chebium
    Sen. Robert Byrd said Wednesday he’s "inclined to run" next year for the Senate seat he’s held since 1959. "I’m inclined to run, but I’m not making any announcement today," said Byrd, who has spent 52 years in Congress, longer than anyone currently serving. "I’m studying about it, thinking about it, talking about it with my friends and people in West Virginia." Byrd, 87, long has been considered virtually unbeatable in West Virginia, a state to which he has directed billions of dollars in federal money. The eight-term senator has been Senate majority leader and the chairman of the check-writing...

    San Francisco would become the first city in the nation to charge drivers just for driving in its chronically congested downtown under a sure-to-be controversial proposal being aired today. Supervisor Jake McGoldrick, chair of the San Francisco Transportation Authority, will ask the agency to study a downtown toll zone -- whereby drivers would need to purchase a daily pass to drive in The City's most congested streets -- as a potential solution to the Municipal Transportation Agency's woeful budget problems. "The key issue here is if we can kill three birds with one stone -- relieve congestion, clean up the...

"Fritz" Hollings in 2004, but a fellow Lowcountry Republican says he will. Rep.

Harrell, who has served in the General Assembly since 1992, did not rule out seeking high office sometime later. Former S.C. Attorney General Charlie Condon, however, said he expects to declare his candidacy officially...
