    Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) is back with his colleagues in Washington, D.C., after winning his hard-fought primary runoff ó but he had a bit of trouble finding Senate Republicans' weekly luncheon on Tuesday. Cochran, while talking with The Hill, made a few wrong turns before accidentally ending up at Senate Democrats' luncheon. After exiting a Senate elevator on the wrong floor, Cochran and The Hill reboarded. He then found the right floor but turned away from the Senate GOP luncheon, a few yards from the elevator, to stroll in the opposite direction, arriving at the Democrats' weekly gathering a few...

    A video game that improved cognition in older adults has led researchers to revise their thinking about the brain's plasticity. "This study is small, but nonetheless, is has shown us that the older brain is capable of changing, compensating and adapting," said Molly Wagster of the National Institute on Aging. In other words, you can teach an old dog new tricks. A multitasking 3D video game that helped some older adults show neurological activity similar to much younger adults could lead researchers to a better understanding of the plasticity of the older brain.

    As everyone knows, David Rockefeller is the Secret Ruler of the World (he fired Khrushchev and hired Brezhnev back in '64). Only he's getting kinda long in the tooth now (he turns 98 today!). He is the last surviving grandson of John D. Rockefeller, who ghost wrote The Communist Manifesto for Marx and Engels when he was eight years old. Question: Has he delegated his powers as Secret Ruler of the World to someone else? Has Soros conducted a coup? How much longer is the old coot gonna be around? And most importantly: Who will secretly rule the world when...

    Kirk Douglas looks around America these days and he sees too many guns. The 96-year-old actor, best known for performances in classic films like Spartacus, Paths of Glory and Lust for Life, took to the cyber pages of The Huffington Post to call for more gun control--and far less guns. I often played the good cowboy on screen, riding in to save the day. Now, everybody thinks he is a cowboy too. That frightens me. We have become a cowboy country with too many guns....

    Betty White says she usually keeps her political views private but in this presidential election strongly favors one candidate. As she prepares to visit the Smithsonian Institution and National Zoo next week, White told The Associated Press she "very, very much favors" President Barack Obama in the election. The 90-year-old actress said Friday she is very bi-partisan and has stayed away from politics all of her life. She usually never says who she is for or against because she doesn't want to turn off any of her adoring fans.

    Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said on Thursday the world was on an "inexorable march toward the abyss," which he blamed in part on the discovery and exploitation of vast reserves of so-called "shale gas" around the world. Shale gas is natural gas locked in rock formations that in the past decade has been found in great abundance around the world and is now considered a top source of future energy. Castro, 85, wrote in one of his occasional columns published in Cuban state media that "numerous dangers threaten us, but two of themónuclear war and climate changeóare decisive and...

    In an appearance on ABC's Nightline in 2001, Hernandez said, referring to Mexican immigrants in the U.S., "I want the third generation, the seventh generation, I want them all to think 'Mexico first.'" Hernandez told the Associated Press the same year, "I never knew the border as a limitation. I'd be delighted if all of us could come and go between these two marvelous countries." Last August, Hernandez published a book entitled "The New American Pioneers: Why Are We Afraid of Mexican Immigrants?" in which he argued Mexican immigrants, both legal and illegal, were at the forefront of establishing a...

    (CBS) The former Democratic nominee for president who ran against a president later driven from office under threat of impeachment, today said that impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney is "the rightful course for an American patriot." George McGovern, a former South Dakota Senator who ran on the Democratic ticket in 1972 as an anti-war advocate, wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post that, while he steered clear of calling for the impeachment of Richard Nixon in the '70s - fearing it would appear as "an expression of personal vengeance" against his opponent who...

    Richard Mellon Scaife, the reclusive right-wing billionaire who financed a ďfamily valuesĒ crusade that almost bought down President Bill Clinton, has offered surprising praise for the politician he once despised - and admitted they both share an interest in philandering. The heir to the Mellon banking fortune was once scorned by Democrats as the shadowy figure behind what Hillary Clinton dubbed ďthe vast right-wing conspiracyĒ. Mr Scaife backed the so-called Arkansas Project that produced a series of stories in the American Spectator magazine into Mr Clintonís sex life, including the notorious ďTroopergateĒ piece that spurred Paula Jonesí sexual harrassment suit...

    Evil in Our Government Paul Craig Roberts Tuesday, May 30, 2006 Is the Bush regime a state sponsor of terrorism? A powerful case can be made that it is. In the past three years, the Bush regime has murdered tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians and an unknown number of Afghan ones. U.S. Marines, members of our finest and proudest military force, are under criminal investigation for breaking into Iraqi homes and murdering entire families. In an unprecedented event, Gen. Michael Hagee, the Marine Corps commandant, has found it necessary to fly to Iraq to tell our best-trained troops to...

    In a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, former Ku Klux Klansman, Sen. Robert Byrd, pledged to put President Bush on trial in the Senate if the House impeaches him.

"The Senate can send you home. You better believe that." The ex-Klansman then added: "If the House impeaches you,...

    A giant Pacific octopus that attacked a remotely operated submarine off north Vancouver Island could have been senile or maybe just peckish, a marine biologist said Wednesday. "Large male octopuses in the last part of their lives become senescent, or senile," said Jim Cosgrove of the Royal B.C. Museum. "They get to be like humans, doddering old fools that have inappropriate behaviours such as being out in the daytime," said Cosgrove, an expert in octopus behaviour. The attack occurred Nov. 18, 2005, off Brooks Peninsula, on the northwest coast of the Island. The submarine was 55 metres deep and Mike...
