    NEW YORK -- An appeals court Tuesday revived part of a class-action lawsuit blaming McDonald's for making people fat, reinstating claims pertaining to deceptive advertising. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a lower court judge erred when he dismissed parts of the lawsuit brought on behalf of two New York children. U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet dismissed the lawsuit in 2003 because he said it failed to link the children's alleged health problems directly to McDonald's products. But the appeals judges said New York's general business law requires a plaintiff to show only that...

    If the quote on Drudge is accurate -- and I've been told it definitely is -- than Edwards should be so ashamed of himself. He allegedly said 'When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk. Get up out of that wheelchair and walk again..." This is outrageous beyond belief. I really hope I don't have to explain why. Update: K-Lo beat me by 2 minutes. Grrr. Clearly she's feeling the power of John Kerry run through her.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court agreed to consider Tuesday whether family members can sue in federal court after a 14-year-old girl cut her finger on a Star-Kist tuna can and suffered permanent damage. snip.. Beatriz Blanco-Ortega, then 9, was at school in Puerto Rico when she cut her finger on the tuna can and bled profusely for nearly 30 minutes. After a nurse stopped the bleeding, her mother took her in for surgery. The doctor reported she suffered scarring and a minor permanent impairment that could get worse over time. Blanco-Ortega and her family then filed separate lawsuits in...

    When John Kerry introduced John Edwards as his running mate, he declared, "I have chosen a man who understands and defends the values of America." The political analysts, or at least those on the left, have swooned. Most news stories have focused on how Edwards "balances the ticket" — on how, in contrast to the "dull" and "patrician" Kerry, Edwards introduces "pizzazz" to the campaign "with bags of Southern charm, youthful energy and an ease with voters on the stump." Reporters have been playing up the contrast between "Cheney's phlegmatic stump-speaking style" and Edwards's "relentlessly peppy populism," and Democratic...
