Stomach-turning. Via the UK Daily Mail: One of the country’s leading hospitals is throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, it has emerged. Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted […]

Last week’s loser of the week Rep. Harold Ford, Jr., who is in a tight race with Republican Bob Corker for Bill Frist’s Senate seat, stepped in it again today with the admission that he did indeed attend a Playboy party – something he had previously denied.
