New York Times Jul 29, 2009 Unpopular Science

MSNBC Dec 01, 2007 Highway To Hell?
QUOTE: Only it's not true. The main purveyor of this broad conspiracy theory is Jerome Corsi, coauthor of "Unfit for Command," the book that helped Swift Boat John Kerry's presidential ambitions. His latest offering is "The Late Great U.S.A.: The Coming Merger With Mexico and Canada," which became a best seller on The New York Times's business list this summer.

MSNBC Nov 10, 2007 Injection of Reflection: There's wide support for a death penalty, but those who carry it out are increasingly uncomfortable.
QUOTE: The Supreme Court has imposed a de facto moratorium on lethal injection while it waits to hear oral arguments this January in Baze v. Rees, a case that could determine whether, or under what conditions, lethal injection can be used as capital punishment. It may be that states will resort to giving prisoners a massive dose of barbiturates—the preferred method for putting down sick pets. In theory, at least, the high court will uphold a "better" form of lethal injection, setting off a wave of executions

MSNBC Aug 29, 2007 Teresa, Bright and Dark: The nun's leading critic argues that her crisis of faith - revealed in newly published letters - was brought on by the crushing unreasonableness of the Roman Catholic Faith
QUOTE: It seems, therefore, that all the things that made Mother Teresa famous—the endless hard toil, the bitter austerity, the ostentatious religious orthodoxy—were only part of an effort to still the misery within.
MSNBC Aug 22, 2007 Iraq Blackouts Get Worse, Fuel Anger
MSNBC Jul 23, 2007 Taxing the Super Rich: Private-equity billionaires—the new Masters of the Universe—often pay far lower rates than the rest of us. But Washington is trying to change that. Get ready for a fight.

Christian Science Monitor Dec 14, 2005 Is the Pentagon spying on Americans? Secret database obtained by NBC News tracks ‘suspicious’ domestic groups
QUOTE: ...the U.S. military has stepped up intelligence collection inside this country since 9/11, which now includes the monitoring of peaceful anti-war and counter-military recruitment groups....the Pentagon now collects domestic intelligence that goes beyond legitimate concerns about terrorism or protecting U.S. military installations, say critics.
