    Cynthia Collier met police at the door, her hands cuffed behind her back. Inside 1604 S. Irving Ave., Scranton police would discover a fresh horror around almost every corner: bludgeoned bodies, bound hostages. And in a crib upstairs, a toddler unharmed. A criminal affidavit accuses Randal Rushing, 25, of killing three people early Thursday in the house where he rented a basement room. He left four other family members traumatized but alive. The document also reveals the cruel and horrifying chronology of events, as well as a successful investigation by police, resulting in the suspect’s capture less than 12 hours...

Ten hours after a grizzly discovery at his residence on South Irving Avenue — three people so badly bludgeoned that the manner of death was difficult to determine — Rushing, 25, was taken into custody just after...
  • Ex-Bolivia President: US Won't Clarify His Missile Scandal Role

    Excerpt - LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP)--Bolivia's former president says Washington is refusing to clarify that he had nothing to do with the secret removal of anti-aircraft missiles to U.S. soil - an incident that has him facing treason charges under Bolivia's new leftist government. "They ought not to be leaving us hanging," said Eduardo Rodriguez, a former Supreme Court chief who stepped in as caretaker president last year after two Bolivian leaders were ousted by street protests. He organized December elections won by the radical leftist Evo Morales, a remarkably strife-free process for such a polarized nation. Twenty-eight Chinese-made shoulder-fired...

    Meet America's latest big boob. No, it's not one of Anna Nicole Smith's. His name is Josh Rushing, the Village Voice's fave former Marine Captain. And he's very excited about his latest showbiz role: chief American monkey for Al Jazeera. When we last saw Rushing, he was out of a job (he was Al-Jazeera's press liaison at Central Command), going on "Nightline," Bill Moyers' "NOW" on PBS, and whatever other liberal media sop would have him and his "somebody give me a job" pronouncements. Ted Koppel gushed over him. Rushing was looking for a job because he was essentially fired...

    <p>WASHINGTON – President George W. Bush asked the Senate's Republican leader to try to push a $373 billion spending package through the chamber by mid-December but was rebuffed, congressional and administration aides said Friday.</p> <p>The president's unusual personal appeal underlined his desire to win enactment of the overdue legislation, which carries big increases for battling the AIDS epidemic in Africa and for other high- profile White House initiatives.
