LOS ANGELES - Investigators are looking into the firebombing of a neuroscientist's car at the University of California at Los Angeles, officials said.

The March 7 firebombing involved a homemade incendiary device, and took place outside the researcher's home, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. She said the incident will ... [full story]

WASHINGTON - House Democrats are considering a second stimulus plan to help reassure investors and boost U.S. consumer confidence, officials say. The Hill reported Tuesday that some Democrats say they believe that the recently enacted $787 billion economic stimulus plan is just not enough to jump start the economy. The newspaper said among proposals considered Tuesday at a meeting of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee is another spending plan. "We are going to need ... [full story]

PORTLAND, Ore. - Patients in Oregon who request physician aid in dying under the state's Death With Dignity Act say they are worried about future suffering, researchers say. "Our data suggests that patients who request physician-assisted death do so not because of physical symptoms or their current quality of life," Dr. Linda Ganzini of the Oregon Health & Science University said in a statement. "They often make their requests based on an anticipation of future ... [full story]

I have known Rush Limbaugh since his old radio days in Sacramento, before he became a GOP god. I've disagreed with him over the years. Last year I took on his bashing of Republican moderates and criticized Limbaugh and other talk-radio hosts when they were too harsh on not-yet GOP nominee John McCain. I've never apologized and we're still friends. If you've watched cable news in the last week, you've seen how the Limbaugh story ... [full story]

It's a long shot for sure, but the irresponsible spending bill produced by Congress just may come off the tracks this week. If it does, taxpayers will score a rare victory. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was forced last week to postpone a vote on the $410 billion measure, which would keep the federal government operating until the fall, because he didn't have the 60 votes needed to get it passed. Republicans, with the ... [full story]

Better late than never. It took a while, but Americans — or at least some of them — have finally gotten around to talking about the monstrous financial burden that we're leaving our children, our grandchildren and, in all likelihood, our great-grandchildren.

Addressing the poorly crafted and irresponsible $787 billion Democratic stimulus bill, Jindal said the legislation ... [full story]
