    WASHINGTON, Feb. 24 — ''One arrest, no conviction,'' Senator Bob Packwood said today, summing up his brush with the law in the early morning. His crime: absence from a quorum call. His punishment: being dragged onto the floor of the Senate by police officers to be recorded as present. While he did not enter a charge of police brutality, a recent bone injury on Senator Packwood's ring finger was aggravated in the encounter.

    STERLING, Virginia (CNN) – Firing up supporters at a women’s rally with Joe Biden in Virginia Friday, Sen. Barbara Mikulski told the crowd, “Democratic women, we wear lipstick too!” referring to Sarah Palin’s now-famous joke that the difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom is lipstick. “You and I know that we women in America are mad as hell and we don’t want to take it anymore,” the spirited Maryland senator said. “I’m here today to say to you, we’ve got to get ready here, ok? Women, square your shoulders. Women, Democratic women, we wear lipstick too!” “We don’t...

    (CBS) AMITYVILLE, N.Y. Two kayakers are alive thanks to a quick-thinking pooch. This is the kind of story you might have seen on the old television series "Lassie." Randy and Kristine Ronback adopted ‘Smooch’ only two weeks ago. They got the 2-year-old border collie to help geese off the lawn of their picturesque home on the Amityville river. It's a job their other pets didn't show much interest in, but little did they know Smooch would end up a hero. Digg This Story! It all began at breakfast Sunday morning. “Smooch all of a sudden started barking and didn't stop,”...

    When I was growing up in Bellflower, Ca., I never, as a child with a good imagination, could have ever imagined that my life would take the peculiar turn that it has. I could not have foreseen giving birth to a child that would eventually be wrongfully and devastatingly killed in war or that I would be meeting with world leaders or be nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. Along with the Vice President of Spain, Foreign Minister of Ireland, Attorney General of Australia and countless parliamentarians from all over the globe, one of the world leaders that I have...

    I'd been here a couple of months, and had begun to worry about handling all the threads. Sooooo, today I grabbed all of the pages by source, grabbed the tables of links to posts to and from me, and sorted them (the easy way, well, as easy as it gets) alpha instead of chrono. Please, don't tell me that there's a way to do that automatically, or my brain will hurt.

    In politics, there are many kinds of kissers. There are baby kissers who smoochie-oochie wee ones in exchange, they hope, for their parents' votes. There are butt kissers who move their lips but aren't exactly puckering up. Then there are the serial kissers who lock lips with spouses (or mothers) at inaugurations, on birthdays, anniversaries and election days, after concession speeches and on the stairs of private jets. To them, every event is a kissing op. President George W. Bush's kisser is always in overdrive. If it's not wife Laura he's bussing, it's mother Barbara, or Oprah Winfrey, or a...
