Soldiers sending identical letters home from Iraq
The Olympian | Submitted by: crow
"A Gannett News Service search found identical letters from different soldiers with the 2nd Battalion of the 503rd Airborne Infantry Regiment, also known as 'The Rock,' in 11 newspapers... The Olympian received two identical letters signed by different hometown soldiers: Spc. Joshua Ackler and Spc. Alex Marois... The five-paragraph letter talks about the soldiers' efforts to re-establish police and fire departments, and build water and sewer plants in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, where the unit is based. 'The quality of life and security for the citizens has been largely restored, and we are a large part of why that has happened,' the letter reads... Six soldiers reached by GNS directly or through their families said they agreed with the letter's thrust. But none of the soldiers said he wrote it, and one said he didn't even sign it... A seventh soldier didn't know about the letter until his father congratulated him for getting it published in the local newspaper in Beckley, W.Va. 'When I told him he wrote such a good letter, he said: "What letter?"' Timothy Deaconson said Friday, recalling the phone conversation he had with his son, Nick. 'This is just not his (writing) style.'"

Scientists reconstructing 1918 Spanish Flu virus
sunshine-project.org | Submitted by: wingnut
"The 'Spanish Flu' influenza virus that killed 20-40 million people in 1918 is currently under reconstruction. Several genes of the extraordinarily lethal 1918 flu virus have been isolated and introduced into contemporary flu strains... These experiments may easily be abused for military purposes, but provide little benefit from a medical or public health point of view. The 1918 Spanish Flu was highly infectious and in comparison to contemporary flu viruses killed a very high percentage of those infected, including many younger people. The Spanish Flu alone caused the medium life expectancy in the US in 1918 to drop by 10 years. Hence, flu viruses are perceived today as a serious biological warfare threat. Just two weeks ago, a 15 million dollar research grant was awarded in the US to develop protective measures especially against a bioterrorist attack with flu viruses."

State Dept. tracking websites as terrorist fronts
Wire Services | Submitted by: Samyael
"The United States has added Web sites to its list of 'foreign terrorist organizations' for the first time, under the category of aliases for conventional groups, a State Department official said on Friday. A list published in the Federal Register includes newkach.org, kahane.org, kahane.net, kahanetzadak.com as aliases for the Jewish group Kahane Chai or Kach, which is suspected of organizing attacks on Palestinians. Under U.S. law, it would be illegal to provide money or other material support to the designated Web sites, the people who run them could be denied U.S. visas and U.S. banks must block their funds. The State Department said it was yet clear how this would work in practice."

Yeti leg found in Siberia
BBC | Submitted by: NeuroManson
"According to Russian TV, the well-preserved furry limb of a mystery creature was found some 3,500 metres up in the permafrost of the Altay mountains, in Russia's remote Siberia region... Scientific tests and X-rays show that the bones are several thousand years old, but attempts to identify the creature they belonged to remain inconclusive... veterinary scientists and academics at the local animal research institute and agragrian university tend towards a more rational explanation. 'It looks very human,' Yuriy Malofeyev, vice-president of the Russian association of veterinary anatomists, told the TV after examining the X-rays."

Bush: Saddam was insane

"President George W Bush defended his policies yesterday in the face of mounting criticism of the Iraqi conflict, saying he had acted to protect Americans from a "madman", Saddam Hussein...

Nuclear waste truck parked near school bus stop
Las Vegas Sun | Submitted by: Jonny Plasma
"Consumers Energy started shipping a 565,000-pound package filled with concrete and a nuclear reactor vessel on Tuesday from the closed Big Rock Point nuclear power plant in Charlevoix, Mich., to a low-level radioactive waste storage facility... The truck carrying the vessel broke an axle en route between Charlevoix and Gaylord, Mich., and it pulled over to the side of a road, where it was fixed. The company then parked the truck Tuesday night near a gas station -- that also serves as a bus stop for 13 elementary and high school students -- until the waste can be transferred to a train that stops in Gaylord. The truck was still there this morning... 'How much sense does it make in a post (Sept. 11, 2001) world to park this thing near a gas station?' Kamps said, saying a flame or spark could have started a fire that would have led to bigger problems."

U.S. rewarding North Korean extortion strategy
CNN | Submitted by: thechessplayer
"U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell says the U.S. has decided to offer security guarantees to North Korea as part of a deal to end Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program... Until now the Bush administration has said it would not be blackmailed into any concessions and has demanded Pyongyang act first and dismantle its program... U.S. officials say addressing North Korea's security concerns is part of a series of steps the United States is willing to take if Pyongyang is willing to dismantle its nuclear weapons program. Other steps include easing of a trade embargo against North Korea and helping Pyongyang to secure much-needed loans from the International Monetary Fund."

Don't bother asking the IRS
query.nytimes.com | Submitted by: Luthore
Treasury Department investigators posing as regular citizens asked Internal Revenue Service help centers about their taxes. The IRS managed to give incorrect answers to a whopping 43% of questions asked. In other words, if you want to know how much money you owe the IRS, don't ask the IRS. Ask someone competent instead. The Treasury Department estimates that at that rate, a half million people were mislead by the IRS during the 6 months of the investigation alone.
