    The former president of grocery store chain Trader Joe's is hoping to make healthy food more accessible to the working poor by opening a store and restaurant that sells expired food, according to Fox News. Doug Rauch's endeavor is called The Daily Table and will open in Dorchester, Mass. come May. The food sold and prepared at the store will only be items that are deemed unsellable by other grocery stores. That includes items that are past their sell by date and items in damaged packaging, the TV station reports.

    A dentist wants to clone John Lennon from his rotten tooth All you need is DNA. A Canadian dentist says he's working with "American scientists" to clone John Lennon from a rotten molar the Beatles singer had extracted in the 1960s. According to the press release (warning: it autoplays a weird parody song, "Love Me Tooth") dentist Michael Zuk bought the tooth at auction for $31,000 and now is working with an unspecified lab to see if they can clone him. Says Zuk: I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John...

    "With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball.” — President Obama, Wednesday Question: How many Americans have to be murdered in an al-Qaeda attack on a U.S. consulate before it stops being a “phony” scandal? Answer: If Barack Obama is president, more than four. Writers across the spectrum — from the liberal New York Times to the conservative Wall Street Journal — have beaten up on President Obama’s latest “dreadful, cliche-ridden” (James Taranto, wsj.com) speech on economic policy, the second-longest speech of his presidency. How can a man talk...

    Decomposed Chavez body may be too dead to go on eternal display After Hugo Chavez's death last week, government officials revealed that the late Venezuelan leader's body would be embalmed and displayed "for eternity." Just like Han Solo, but with less chance of him waking up again. However, the grisly plans may now not happen at all. According to Russian and German scientists who are experts in the field of embalming (what a job), his body is now a bit too gross and decomposed. "They tell us it’s very difficult because the process should have started earlier," said acting President...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – John Glenn fever has taken hold of Cape Canaveral once again. Three days before the 50th anniversary of his historic flight, the first American to orbit the Earth addressed employees at Kennedy Space Center. The NASA auditorium was packed Friday with hundreds of workers, many of whom stood along the walls to see the space legend. The 90-year-old Glenn was joined on stage by Scott Carpenter, 86, the only other survivor of the original Mercury 7 astronauts. Glenn recalled how he and his fellow Mercury astronauts traveled to Cape Canaveral to watch a missile blast off....

    National Review Online ^ | 9/8/10 | Hans A. von Spakovsky
    The Washington Times lead editorial today is about the Justice Department enabling voter fraud — just in time for the November elections. This is due to the Department’s refusal to enforce the part of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act that requires states to remove ineligible voters from their registration rolls — people who have died or moved away, and felons who have not yet had their voting rights restored. The longer such names remain on a registration list, the greater the chances that a fraudulent vote will be cast in their names. I reported in 2009 that...

    We should not be overly excited or deceived by the Scott Brown victory or any other conservative-moderate victories in 2010, however exciting as they might be. The true heart of the American people has NOT CHANGED for the better. It still is what it has always been over these last 50 years or so: licentious and haughty. Even now many conservatives have been subtly intoxicated and tainted by socialism, godlessness and the immoral practices of the Left (Jer. 6:16-17; Matt. 15:8, 18-20). For example, consider the Republican administration and congress of the last 8 years. Except for a core of...

    The state of our society and modern-day culture here in America is sickening, to say the least. It’s no secret that with the spearhead of the 60’s secular leftist/ socialist movement, America has reaped “a whirlwind” of societal consequences that are indeed devastating. Secular Liberalism The non-absolute morality and godless religious ideology of the secular left has permeated into all aspects of our once dominant Judean/ Christian heritage and culture. The Social climate of today’s America is so decadent, so immoral, so base and so lewd that it has passed the point of remediation to the point of no return....

    PHOENIX, AZ -- Brutis the cat is back home with his owner after going through a bit of a pickle. He had been stuck in a neighbor's tree for nine days, according to the owner. And the cat's owner says a police officer may have been partly to blame. The cat got away from his owner, Michael, last Sunday at a home near 12th Street and Bell Road. When Michael finally tracked Brutis down, he was stuck in the branches, two stories in the air, on his neighbor's property. The neighbor is a Phoenix police officer. Michael had tried to get the cat...

    The upcoming meeting between President-elect Barack Obama and his one-time rival, Sen. John McCain, was set in motion during a phone call over the weekend between Obama and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), McCain's closest friend. In an interview Friday, Graham said that Obama requested the meeting during a 20-minute phone call that the South Carolina senator described as a "pleasant" discussion about how they could work together effectively. "We just talked about the desire to find something meaningful to work on," Graham said. "He was very nice to me, said that he considered me a serious, reform-minded senator that he...

    In April, when Public Utilities Commission Chairman Michael Peevey persuaded the PUC board to back his plan to use $600 million generated by a 10-year surcharge on some energy bills to create a PUC-run global warming think tank, the response was far chillier than he probably expected. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was enthusiastic, but he was practically alone. Experts on utility law questioned whether it would be legal for an agency created to regulate utilities to force ratepayers to subsidize an agency think tank. Consumer groups such as The Utilities Reform Network questioned the fairness of imposing an additional de facto...

    Democratic presidential front-runner Barack Obama says Israel is a "constant wound" and a "constant sore" that infects "all of our foreign policy." Obama, under fire for attracting praise and support for his presidential run from the terrorist group Hamas, spoke to Atlantic Monthly at length about his views of the Middle East. Asked if he thought Israel represented a drag on America's reputation overseas, Obama said: "No, no, no. But what I think is that this constant wound, that this constant sore, does infect all of our foreign policy. The lack of a resolution to this problem provides an excuse...

    European, Asian and Canadian companies are taking advantage of the weaker dollar to buy their U.S. counterparts at a record pace, increasing investment in the United States but also raising fears about a potential loss of jobs and autonomy. "We could be looking at the world's largest tag sale if we continue to see declines in the dollar," said Donald Klepper-Smith, chief economist at DataCore Partners. In the latest large deal aided by a weak dollar, Commerce Bancorp, which is based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, agreed Tuesday to be acquired by Toronto-Dominion Bank of Canada in a cash-and-shares deal...

    Most anybody in the mortgage business will tell you that August was a month that will live in infamy: The market was in turmoil, as doubts about the stability of subprime loans spread to other sectors of the mortgage world. How bad was it? A survey of mortgage brokers suggests that one in three consumers who recently signed purchase contracts canceled in August -- up from just 4 percent three years ago, according to the research firm that conducted the survey for Inside Mortgage Finance, a trade journal. The cancellation rate undoubtedly was fed by two scenarios playing out: Many...

    The California Tomato Commission is supposed to be in the business of promoting the blessed red globe with funds that come from growers and shippers. But something else has been happening with the tomato money. Private plane travel. Four-figure dinners at Morton's. Conferences in Cabo San Lucas, with friends and family along on the commission dime. It took auditors 128 pages to document it all. The story of the California Tomato Commission is an all too familiar one. When a government thinks that nobody is watching, bad things can happen. There are just too many governments, boards and commissions for...

    On Christmas Day, British Forces in Basrah carried out a major operation in Basrah to curtail the activities of a police unit, known as the Serious Crimes Unit (SCU). The unit, some 400 strong, was known to have been heavily infiltrated by anti-Coalition elements and was responsible for the detention of two British servicemen in September 2005. After removing some of the high ranking members of the unit in the past week, British troops from 19 Light Brigade, supported by Iraqi Army soldiers began the action, named Operation Thyme, at 2 a.m. Royal Engineers breached the outer wall of the...

"The American administration and (Secretary of State Condoleezza) Rice herself would be better off showing some caution so that they won't be shamed next Saturday," siad Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi, AFP reported. Days before the first ballot was to be cast, the United States dismissed Iran's presidential election as rigged and exhorted the Iranian people to rise up for democratic reform. On Friday, US...

AP Photo Yahoo! Health Have questions about your health?Find answers here.   Methamphetamine can be made with a horrid mix of substances, including over-the-counter cold medicine, fertilizer, battery acid and hydrogen peroxide. Together, the chemicals reduce a user's saliva, which neutralizes acids and physically clears food from the teeth, said Dr. Eric Curtis, an Arizona-based spokesman for the Academy of General Dentistry.
