    Rutgers University scientists say their research suggests some people voted for George W. Bush rather than John Kerry because of concerns about death. Florette Cohen, a graduate student in social psychology and Daniel Ogilvie, a psychology professor, used research based on the 2004 presidential election. They found voters in a "psychologically benign state of mind" preferred Kerry to Bush, but Bush was more popular than Kerry after voters received a subtle reminder of death.

    Symbol blurs the U.S. mission American flag briefly on statue hinted at occupation, not liberation Thursday, April 10, 2003 BY JUDY PEET Star-Ledger Staff [Newark, NJ] -- It was the defining image of the day: A crowd of exuberant Iraqis, with the help of Marines, toppling a 40-foot statue of Saddam Hussein, then dragging his giant decapitated head through the streets of Baghdad.A classic moment of liberation imagery, however, was marred by an act of overenthusiasm by U.S. troops who put an American flag on the statue's head. That act, lasting only minutes, blurred the line between liberation and occupation...
