    Pigs are dispensable; or, at least, so says the Ministry of Defence, which yesterday owned up to detonating more than 100 of the poor sow-and-sows in its bid to improve the lot of soldiers blasted by roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is enlightened attitude that cannot be said to be shared by our European neighbours, who were last night on the brink of endorsing the biggest pig-rescue mission in history. Of course, in this case, the PIGS in question are not animals but countries – or, to be more precise, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain. In crisis talks...

    Dow Surges Tripe Digits As Greek Market Explodes Higher Joe Weisenthal Feb. 9, 2010, 9:41 AM Last week we joked that the Shanghai Index was the index to watch. Actually, what you should be watching is the Athens Index. The Dow is up triple digits on the open, because Athens just did a huge move. Why?

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement tonight in response to President Bush's speech on Iraq: "Tonight the President acknowledged more of the mistakes he has made in Iraq, but he still does not get it.

The President's speech tonight was further evidence that after almost three years, he still does not understand that crucial fact. "President Bush persists in pursuing a flawed policy that has not made the American people...

Lady Bird Johnson said the film "falsely and irresponsibly" accuses her husband of conspiring to kill President Kennedy. No accusation made against Johnson "has hurt as painfully," the 91-year-old former first lady said in a Jan. 29 letter. Her husband died in 1973. Copies of her letter were sent to the chief executives of three companies that own A&E Networks, which includes the History Channel....
