    Former Attorney General Janet Reno said the U.S. government must be careful to avoid selectively using facts when prosecuting suspected terrorists. Reno, who served as attorney general under President Bill Clinton, said prosecutors often allow prejudices to skew their use of facts. "But what I've discovered (from being a prosecutor and attorney general) is that we get tunnel vision," Reno said. "We want the facts to be something and we wish them into being." Reno made her comments while speaking to an audience of mostly students and professors at the S.J. Quinney College of Law on Tuesday. Her speech focused...

    She was the nation's top cop during the Clinton administration. Now former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno is making news by saying women are better managers than their male counterparts. Reno, who was the first female Attorney General in the U.S. spoke Friday morning at Citigroup’s Latin American Women's Council in Miami. In addition to talking about her career, past leadership roles and challenges she faced as Attorney General, she also said that women make better managers because women interact with their employees. “Women can manage, can understand the conflicting pressures that are brought to bear on people who are...

    WHY IS it that the higher up you go, the more likely it is that someone's going to call you a lesbian? Just as with Oprah Winfrey, who recently denied rumors that she's gay, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and former Attorney General Janet Reno have all been subjected to speculation about their sexuality. It just goes with the territory. Be strong. Be successful. Don't define yourself by a man and let the whispers about your sexuality begin. This double standard toward powerful women illustrates just how much America's discomfort with the notion of females at the...

    Bikini-clad dancers discoing inside glass-walled showers. Beautiful people carousing on the dance floors and canoodling in the V.V.I.P. room. Murmurs about drugs and sex in other rooms. Sounds like the perfect place for a Hillary Rodham Clinton fund-raiser, huh? A week ago, when the senator's re-election campaign announced a Feb. 21 event for donors at the Hell's Kitchen nightclub Pacha, eyebrows went up among some party-going politicos. Since Pacha opened this winter in the old Sound Factory space, the buzz has been about its hot tubs, wet-n-wild dancers and after-hours antics, which, according to The New York Post, have included...

    Current ads for Svedka Vodka feature a fembot made of steel, sporting a curvy backside and a come-hither posture. "The future of adult entertainment," reads the tag line. There's something deeply disturbing about these ads. It's not the animatron with the blank, moldable expression; she's merely a video-game version of the inflatable sex dolls guys get at stag parties. What's so unsettling is that the tag line could very well be right. Thirty-odd years ago, women across the United States burned their bras and carried picket signs advocating free love and the Equal Rights Amendment. Today, many of that generation's...

    Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno wowed the crowd at the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association's conference in Montreal on Sept. 24 with an impassioned speech on universal healthcare, wrapping up the GLMA's annual conference with an inspired bang. Reno stressed the importance of gay healthcare professionals to come out and work as a community as the best means of standing up to an increasingly conservative, homophobic culture and government. “By utilizing the professional bonds and friendships built up through your work, I believe you can build a system of healthcare delivery that will make us all proud,” said Reno....

    Neighbors caught in clouds of tear gas when armed federal agents seized Elián González from the home of his Miami relatives testified Monday about burning eyes, sore throats and lingering fearfulness and nightmares nearly five years after the predawn raid. "It felt like you were going to die," said María Riera, who lived across Northwest Second Avenue from the boy's aunt, uncle and cousin. She testified she was standing in her driveway when a federal agent doused her with chemicals from a small gun attached to a cylinder. Her next-door neighbor, cement worker Antonio Ortega, testified he was putting his...

    A souped up Chevy Camaro owned by David Koresh, the slain leader of the Branch Davidian religious sect, will be sold at a Texas auction this weekend, the auctioneer said on Wednesday. The 500-horsepower Camaro was Koresh's everyday car and has dents from an FBI (news - web sites) tank that struck it during the April 19, 1993 raid in which he and 80 Davidians died and their Waco, Texas compound burned to the ground, said Daniel Kruse of vintage car firm Kruse International. The 1968 model "muscle" car with a powerful 427-cubic-inch motor has the words "DAVID'S 427 GO...
