Nun murdered, presumably by sex-organ traffickers
BBC | Submitted by: sTabby
"A Brazilian nun has been found dead in Mozambique after some of her colleagues said they had exposed an organ trafficking network. Doraci Edinger had reportedly been strangled and beaten in her home in the northern city of Nampula. The traffickers are said to target the sex organs of children, which are sold to make magic charms... On Tuesday, the authorities said they had found no evidence of a trade in human organs. But the nuns say they have spoken to victims who managed to escape the ring and have photos of dead children with missing organs."

Bush, Cheney barely cooperating with 9-11 panel
New York Times | Submitted by: optional
"President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have placed strict limits on the private interviews they will grant to the federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks, saying that they will meet only with the panel's top two officials and that Mr. Bush will submit to only a single hour of questioning, commission members said Wednesday. The commission, which has 10 members and is bipartisan, said in a statement that it had also been informed by the White House that Condoleezza Rice, the national security adviser, had rejected its request that she testify in public about the intelligence reports that reached her desk before the Sept. 11 attacks... The White House initially opposed creating the panel."

9-11 panel grudgingly given 8-week extension
CNN | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"After intense pressure from lawmakers and family members of victims, House Speaker Dennis Hastert reversed his position Friday and said he would not oppose granting a 60-day extension to the commission investigating the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001... Earlier in the week, his spokesman, John Feehery, said the speaker also did not want the issue to become 'a political football' by stretching its report further into the election year... The Bush administration initially opposed the commission's creation in November 2002, and the White House's commitment to the probe has been questioned... McClellan, speaking to reporters Friday, said, 'This administration has bent over backwards to make sure the commission has the information they need to do their job.'" [Utterly astonishing.]

USDA prevents beef producer from testing herd for BSE
New York Times | Submitted by: A. P. Palled
"Creekstone Farms of Arkansas City, Kan., a subsidiary of the Enterprise Management Group, wants to use rapid diagnostic tests that are routinely used in Japan and many European nations. But no rapid tests have been approved by the United States Department of Agriculture... 'We have been looking at the idea of testing all our animals for some time,' [Creekstone president John Stewart] said. 'This moved to the forefront with the most recent episode in Washington State. The problem we're having now is that the USDA is not wanting to do this. They don't want to test. They don't want to recognize BSE is a problem. They are not going to allow anyone to test until they decide how or when. We believe that may be never.'"

Incompetent jail nurses doom teen
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: I Dont Feel So Good
"A supervising guard at a juvenile jail told a dying teen to 'suck it up' as the boy retched, wept and moaned from stomach pain, evidence given to a grand jury shows. Some guards tried to get help for 17-year-old Omar Paisley before he died of a burst appendix, the records show, but their supervisors and jail nurses believed he was faking or exaggerating. 'Ain't nothing wrong with his ass,' one nurse said."

Ghanaian teen stolen for sex slaves
GhanaHomePage | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The Gambian authorities said this week they were questioning a group of 63 Ghanaian children, most of whom were girls who had been trafficked into the country for use as 'sex slaves' and unpaid domestic servants. Immigration officials said on Wednesday that they had cracked a child trafficking ring which was bringing in the teenagers into the country illegally to work for a community of Ghanaian fishermen living on the coast... Gambians have been shocked at reports in the local press that most of the teenagers were being used as sex slaves... the girls were forced to 'satisfy the sexual desires of older men' and some were working full-time as prostitutes within the 5,000-strong Ghanaian community."

Asahara gets death sentence
BBC | Submitted by: unaesthetic
"Shoko Asahara, the leader of a Japanese doomsday cult which gassed the Tokyo subway in 1995, has been sentenced to death for ordering the attack. The sarin gas attack, which killed 12 people and injured thousands more, shocked Japan and shed light on the fanatical Aum Shinrikyo group. Eleven other Aum members have received death sentences, though none have been executed pending appeals... Asahara, whose real name is Chizuo Matsumoto, stood passively and said nothing as he was found guilty of all 13 charges of murder and attempted murder."

Cape Cod Online | Submitted by: Divagyrl

Heather O'Neill, 26, said she picked up a Big Mac and fries at the drive-thru window of a McDonald's just off the Sagamore rotary... 'I picked up a clump of fries, and something falls on my lap,' she said. 'It was a dirty, bloody, folded Band-Aid... I said, "Oh my God, Oh my God"... I ate almost every single fry before I found it. It's so disgusting.'"

Pet owner killed by spiders, eaten by reptiles
Sun | Submitted by: Verno
"A man who lived in his own 'zoo' of lizards and insects was fatally bitten by a pet black widow spider - then eaten by the other creepy-crawlies. Police broke in to Mark Voegel's apartment to find spider Bettina along with 200 others, several snakes, a gecko lizard called Helmut and several thousand termites had gorged on his body... A police spokesman said: 'It was like a horror movie. His corpse was over the sofa. Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and his mouth. There was everything there one could imagine in the world of reptiles. Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards were scooped up and taken back to the webs of tarantulas and other bird-eating spiders.' ... Spider expert and animal cruelty officer Gabi Bayer said he kept creatures 'that should never be allowed in a private home.' She said: 'He had spiders so aggressive they are the equivalent of a pit-bull in the animal world.'"

Molested girls more likely to take smoke breaks
Science Daily | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Women who were sexually abused as children are much more likely to be current smokers than women who weren't abused as children... 'We found childhood sexual abuse is a strong predictor of smoking for women,' says Colmar De Von Figueroa-Moseley, Ph.D., lead investigator in the study and director of Mayo Clinic's Office of Diversity in Clinical Research. 'In our study, it was a more reliable smoking predictor than income, age or ethnicity.'"

Girl utterly painless
KARE-TV 11 Minneapolis | Submitted by: skuppy
"Gabby Gingras has a disease so rare she's the only person her parents and doctors can find in the U.S. suffering from it... Gabby was born with a genetic defect called Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy Type-5... Because Gabby feels no pain, she no longer has any teeth... The teeth she didn't break off while biting toys were removed by an oral surgeon after Gabby chewed up her mouth and tongue so badly she had to be hospitalized... Gabby didn't have pain to save her eyes either. She scratched them so severely, that at one point doctors sewed them shut to keep her fingers out. But, the damage was already done. Last week Gabby's family was at Fairview University Medical Center to discuss the removal of her left eye, now swollen and blind from glaucoma brought on by the scratching... Gabby broke her jaw a year ago and no one knew it for more than a month. Last fall, she snuck out of bed, stood in front of a hot steam humidifier and suffered second-degree burns." With video.

USSR pipeline sabotaged by faulty software
Tacoma News Tribune | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"In January 1982, President Reagan approved a CIA plan to sabotage the economy of the Soviet Union through covert transfers of technology that contained hidden malfunctions, including software that later triggered a huge explosion in a Siberian natural gas pipeline, according to a new memoir by a Reagan White House official... 'In order to disrupt the Soviet gas supply, its hard currency earnings from the West, and the internal Russian economy, the pipeline software that was to run the pumps, turbines, and valves was programmed to go haywire, after a decent interval, to reset pump speeds and valve settings to produce pressures far beyond those acceptable to pipeline joints and welds.'"

Orson Scott Card offers same-sex marriage proposal
ornery.org | Submitted by: Sketch
From the Mormon author of Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead: "Any homosexual man who can persuade a woman to take him as her husband can avail himself of all the rights of husbandhood under the law. And, in fact, many homosexual men have done precisely that, without any legal prejudice at all. Ditto with lesbian women. Many have married men and borne children. And while a fair number of such marriages in recent years have ended in divorce, there are many that have not. So it is a flat lie to say that homosexuals are deprived of any civil right pertaining to marriage. To get those civil rights, all homosexuals have to do is find someone of the opposite sex willing to join them in marriage." [Filed under "Unclear on the Concept."]
