Millionaire pleads guilty to killing 171 protected hawks

Said millionaire, a 71-year-old dog trainer, will have to pay a $45,000 fine and an $85,000 contribution to two environmental organizations. That’s $760.23 per hawk. Which seems kind of light. But she’s banned from dog shows this fall! That’ll teach her!

White House Moves to Intervene as Port Talks Break Off

Wow, Bush is intervening to end a strike. Who would have guessed?

A couple of rather poor images of the Helen Keller quarter. I’ll try to find a better one. Hey, braille!
