    When he died on September 7, 2012, theoretical physicist Claud W. Lovelace left behind a house filled with parakeets. With no family or close companions, the eccentric Rutgers professor loved to be surrounded by his colorful fine-feathered friends and listen to classical music as he contemplated the nuances of unified field theory. A loner not particularly close to his colleagues, members of the Physics and Astronomy department were astounded and delighted when he willed his entire fortune of $1.5 million to it. The funds were used to help establish endowed positions in practical fields of physics, a far cry from...

    FOREST CITY, N.C. -- A Baptist minister in North Carolina is refusing to apologize for a church sign that says the Muslim Quran should be flushed. The Rev. Creighton Lovelace, of Danieltown Baptist Church, says right is right, and he feels he was right when he posted a message outside his church condemning the Quran, reported Greenville-Spartanburg TV station WYFF. "I cannot change my position just because it may offend someone else," Lovelace said. Lovelace said he put the sign up in response to a Newsweek article that falsely accused U.S.soldiers of flushing the Quran down a toilet at the...

Rather, they are wasting their patron's money (who is financing this nonsense, anyway?) with technologies that have proved invaluable in medical...
