    A South Florida woman says her husband paid the ultimate price for having defective Chinese dry wall in their home. "He was perfect, lungs, everything. No illness at all and in October of that year he was diagnosed with stage four cancer," Adriana Grillet said of her husband, Juan Merino. The family lived in a high rise building off Biscayne Boulevard in Aventura for about a year. Just nine months after he was diagnosed, Merino was dead. On Wednesday, Grillet was in court forging ahead with her claim that even though her husband asked, they were told there wasn't Chinese...

    The New England Patriots are none too fond of cheerleaders who draw penises, swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs on drunk people. 18-year-old Caitlin Davis got the boot from the football team's cheerleading squad, the Boston Herald is reporting, after several inappropriate and downright offensive pictures featuring Davis cheifing* a drunk person were found on her Facebook page. Doesn't anyone set those things to private anymore!? FYI -- Davis recently dressed up as an angel for the team's Halloween celebration. *cheif -- to write, mark, shave, sud or otherwise vandalize an individual who is comatose due to over consumption of alcohol.

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A woman has sued a former Carolina Panthers cheerleader for allegedly punching her at a bar. Melissa Holden, 26, of Tampa, was waiting in line in the bathroom of a Tampa bar on Nov. 6 when Victoria Renee Thomas punched her, police said. Thomas and another cheerleader, Angela Keathley, had emerged from a stall after other patrons yelled at them, police said. Holden filed the lawsuit Friday. It said Thomas "intentionally, willfully and maliciously assaulted and battered" her. The University of South Florida student and nurse seeks more than $15,000 for her injuries. "I've been humiliated,"...

    WEST ALLIS, Wis. — President Bush, ignoring press derision of Zell Miller, yesterday began invoking him on the campaign trail, which brought raucous applause from voters who share the fiery Georgian's opposition to fellow Democratic Sen. John Kerry.     "Zell Miller of Georgia, he's a discerning Democrat," Mr. Bush told a rally in Moosic, Pa., his first stop after accepting the party's nomination Thursday. The audience of 8,000 exploded in cheers.     The reaction was even more dramatic at the president's next stop here, where the crowd of 20,000 made more noise than any other gathering the president has addressed during the...

    Celesta Danger In Texas women's Roller Derby, players, like the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers, are unpaid. AUSTIN, July 26 - Of course there are rules in Texas women's Roller Derby. One unwritten rule, more for the audience, goes, "Never, never, ever spill a beer." Another rule, also aimed particularly at the legions of male fans, says that if a Texas Rollergirl or TXRD Lonestar Rollergirl (there are two leagues, not on speaking terms) slips on beer or whatever and falls in your lap, "You can't take her home unless she says so." For the skaters, there are rules against fighting...

    Speed of light may have changed recently 19:00 30 June 04 The speed of light, one of the most sacrosanct of the universal physical constants, may have been lower as recently as two billion years ago - and not in some far corner of the universe, but right here on Earth. The controversial finding is turning up the heat on an already simmering debate, especially since it is based on re-analysis of old data that has long been used to argue for exactly the opposite: the constancy of the speed of light and other constants. A varying speed of light...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler will have a second round of stomach-reduction surgery to speed up his weight loss. Nadler, a Manhattan Democrat, underwent the first procedure almost a year ago, and he has since shed about 75 pounds. "I certainly am doing a lot more walking and so forth,'' said Nadler, who at 5'4'' once weighed 338 pounds. "I didn't take the subway before because I didn't want to walk the stairs -- now I take the subway all the time.'' Nadler's surgery, to be performed in New York, will complete the second part of...

    They were hiding BEER, not WEAPONS! Just minutes after U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell played an audio tape of two members of Iraq's Republican Guard purportedly discussing removing weapons from a truck, the Guard members came forward to say they had been discussing beer, not weapons. "I could understand why Secretary Powell would be all mad and everything if he thought we were talking about removing weapons from the truck," one of the Guard members said. "But the thing is, we weren't talking about weapons -- we were talking about empties." According to the Iraqi, he and his friend...
