LET'S TOAST for that!:
If you want to live a long and healthy life, you're probably trying to eat right, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. Good steps. Now how about adding a little alcohol to your regimen?

That's right. It is well documented that tossing a few drinks back in a week (and that means a few: up to one a day for women, up to two for men) has potential heart benefits. But researchers in Denmark decided to look further. Could drinking alcohol have a benefit similar to that of exercise?

"If you don't want to exercise too much," asks Dr. Morten Gronbaek, epidemiologist with Denmark's National Institute of Public Health, "can you trade it for one to two drinks per day and be fine?" A study Gronbaek and colleagues just published in the European Heart Journal suggests the answer just may be yes. That finding, not surprisingly, has proved to be a crowd-pleaser.
No kidding.

YOU'LL BETTER wear a helmet:
A large American spy satellite is expected to fall to Earth some time in the next month, officials said yesterday.

It is unclear where the space debris might come down, but it could hit ground in late February or March.

Don't you remember?! Islamic terrorist activities against Spain was only directed against Madrid because of Aznar's assistance in Bush's war-mongering and "to avenge the presence of Spanish troops in Iraq"?!
UPDATE. Perry de Havilland doesn't understand it either.

DISCONTENT against Ahmadinejad grows inside Iran.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON takes a look back on the Iraq war. Another must-read.

NOBLE OR SAVAGE? The era of the hunter-gatherer was not the social and environmental Eden that some suggest.
