Last week, Wally Schirra, Jr., a member of a shrinking and nearly extinct daredevil brotherhood, died of a heart attack. Schirra was the only astronaut to fly in all three of NASA’s original manned spaceflight programs: Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. Of the original Mercury Seven, only Scott Carpenter and John Glenn are still alive. As […]

Yet another suspicious package containing a powdery substance has been sent to John Edwards (aka “The Breck Girl” aka “Silky Pony”): Postal employees in Chapel Hill intercepted a package Thursday addressed to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards after they found the letter contained a powdery substance, authorities said.

The A.P. asked all current presidential candidates what their dream job is, and here’s what they said: Democrats • Sen. Joe Biden, Delaware: Architect. • Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, New York: […]

No wonder they call much of the modern environmental movement it “going green” — there’s a ton of cash in it. This “carbon credits” business will turn out to be one of the biggest scams since the “help me get my money out of Nicaragua” email that still goes around, and people still fall for. […]
