    A Massachusetts woman may have succumbed to "snowball rage." Marie Needs, 48, was picking up her daughter at Andover High School (search) last Wednesday afternoon when a snowball struck her car. Then another. And another. Needs yelled at the kids throwing the snowballs, then got out and chased them — with a tire iron. More snowballs pelted her, and she went back into her car to get her pepper spray (search). While all this was going on, student Joey Cataldo, 16, came out to the parking lot to find Needs' Honda blocking his car. He asked her to move her...

    f you are in a "persistent vegetative state" and there is a dispute about whether to keep you alive, your case will probably go no further than state court - unless you are Terri Schiavo. President Bush signed legislation yesterday giving Ms. Schiavo's parents a personal right to sue in federal court. The new law tramples on the principle that this is "a nation of laws, not of men," and it guts the power of the states. When the commotion over this one tragic woman is over, Congress and the president will have done real damage to the founders' careful...

    Capitol Hill man pays the price for comments about bomb, train. Gerry Dunphy grew increasingly angry last summer about the new police checkpoints choking his Capitol Hill neighborhood. And one morning in August, as he was driving his son through one of three checkpoints to get to Union Station, his temper got the better of him. Dunphy, 70, recalls shouting at the officers that they should stop wasting their time on passing cars and worry instead about whether a bomb could be placed on a train passing through Washington. Law enforcement officials say that he went further than that, pointing...

    Richard Cohen's column yesterday exemplifies the incoherent rage of the left which pervades our media. In this column "Rage in Riyadh," Cohen bemoans the "rage" which Saudis feel when they face such inconveniences as "humiliating" immigration delays or the anger when one would-be immigrant was denied a visa because he had ignored a traffic ticket. Yet, many law enforcement and terrorist experts have long-complained that the Visa Express program, which permitted Saudis extraordinarily easy access to America was one of the causes of 9/11, because it gave an upper hand to terrorists, as a column in Thursday's Washington Times stated....

    Dear Human Resources Director: Recently, I gave serious consideration to filing a sexual harassment suit against a fellow employee who was talking about her husband’s erectile dysfunction in the workplace. All of her angry ranting about her husband’s lovemaking deficiencies infringes on my right to feel comfortable at all times in the workplace. I am aware that the right to feel comfortable is not found in the United States Constitution. Fortunately, it is found in the campus diversity handbook, which trumps state and federal statutes as well as the U.S. Constitution. I learned that during Black History Month, which was...

    Aggressive driving along Interstate-75 appears to be more problematic than ever. "We're seeing the problem of road rage increasing," said Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Norman Parks, who has been patrolling the interstates for almost 15 years. "It's scary to drive down here," said one driver. "Weaving, tailgating, cutting people off," said another driver. "When you get all of that, it can pose real problems," said Parks. That's why Florida Senator Mike Bennett is pushing for the Road Rage Reduction Act to be made into law. It's designed to reduce the amount of people in the left lane. "We have a...

    HOUSTON (AP) - Road rage? Try restaurant rage. A 34-year-old man apparently angry that his $6 steak and cheese sandwich was too cold was arrested on a charge of threatening to kill the restaurant manager Wednesday. Police said the manager offered to reheat Devlin B. Nelson's sandwich or make him a new one when he complained. Authorities allege he instead demanded a refund, threw the sandwich at the manager, then threatened to kill her and blow up the restaurant. Nelson, a Houston public works employee, has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the investigation. He remained in...

    A forgotten cheeseburger sent two McDonald's drive-through patrons into a rage Friday. The pair stormed into the West St. Paul restaurant, loudly cursed at the staff about the botched order and later allegedly clubbed an intervening customer with a baseball bat. Dakota County prosecutors on Monday charged Miguel Hernandez, 18, and Michael Anthony Lee, 19, with a felony — making terroristic threats. It's the second fast-food rage case to come across Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom's desk this week. A confrontation with a customer in an Arby's drive-through in Burnsville the same day landed Robert Chan Nguyen, 19, in jail,...

    WASHINGTON - Egypt's president says Arabs hold a "hatred never equaled" toward America. Jordan's king abruptly postpones a visit to the White House. And those are among the United States' best friends in the Arab world. The war in Iraq, and a shift on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, has left the Bush administration facing growing hostility and an estrangement from friends across the Middle East. "There is enormous anger in the Arab world that needs to be dealt with," said Nail Al-Jubeir, a spokesman for the Saudi embassy in Washington. The White House minimized the problem Tuesday, saying President Bush did...

It's amusing for us political reporters to watch the senator from Arizona struggle with the role fate handed him: riding shotgun on the Bush re-election stagecoach. It's hard to know whether McCain, deep down, wants to protect his passenger or let the Indians have him. As for Bush, he doesn't trust McCain, but needs him. McCain's rhetorical flirtation with the idea of becoming Sen. John Kerry's running mate is just the latest act in...

No, Mason protested, I love my father very much. “Then you hate your mother.” No, said Mason, I love my mother. Told that he didn’t hate his brothers or sisters either, the shrink suggested, “Maybe you’ve got a cousin?” Reversing Tolstoy, the twentieth century decided that unhappy families were all alike. According to Freud, it was natural for boys to hate their fathers. And their brothers too. Phrases like Oedipus complex and...

Before this personal suit, French race hate issues went through their public prosecutor or various French anti-race associations.

    Yesterday, this newspaper ran a headline: "US: Israel shouldn't enrage Muslims." This is odd, coming from the United States. It is a clear throwback to the sentiment in some quarters that if only that thorn, Israel, were to be removed from the paw of the Arabs, things would go more smoothly. The headline was based on Secretary of State Colin Powell's comment opposing exiling or harming Yasser Arafat, because "...there would be rage throughout the Arab world, the Muslim world, and in many other parts of the world." But if one were to follow such logic, does not Israel have...

    Scientists studying the brains of mice have discovered how the toxic protein that destroys the brain cells of Alzheimer's patients enters the brain. When the researchers gave mice a drug that blocked the process, flow of the protein into the brain was virtually halted and existing accumulations of it in the brain plummeted by more than 70 percent. The results of the research will be published in the July 1 issue of Nature Medicine. The new findings center on amyloid beta, a tiny protein molecule that accumulates over time to form tell-tale plaques in the brain tissue of Alzheimer's patients....

Like Kacyznski, the Columbine High School killers, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, were motivated by rage, not only against those they saw despoiling the environment but also against the dominant school culture that ridiculed them."

Last week Etzioni's Communitarian Network issued the report "American Society in the Age of Terrorism," an analysis of post-9/11 poll- ing. Unsurprisingly, the report finds more interest in family, spirituality, and volunteerism and more trust in government, though "all these effects have begun to recede, and are predicted to decline further if no new attacks occur." But "there can be little doubt that, by and large, the...

The particulars cannot be published because of a court-imposed publication ban on evidence but the charges would strike fear in most post-Sept. 11 air travellers. Const.

He faces charges he sexually assaulted and threatened to kill a flight attendant while violently disrupting a Hamilton-bound WestJet flight.

Mark William Kruithoff was convicted of a felony count of animal cruelty. The 36-year-old Jenison resident was sentenced yesterday to 18 months to six-years in prison. Prosecutors said Kruithoff became outraged when he arrived at his parents' home in April 2001 and discovered them having dinner with his ex-wife. They said he grabbed a hammer and smashed the dog's head with it at least five times...
