Bridge 7/4

Regular readers will know that on July 4, 1776, four of the declaration signatories repaired to a quiet room to play a game remarkably similar to present-day bridge. After two rubbers, Thomas Jefferson was well ahead, with Benjamin Franklin being the biggest loser. On the first board of the third rubber, John Adams made seven hearts with 150 honors. On the second, Adams went down in a four-spade contract he could have made with the aid of a scissors coup. This was the third deal.

Police arrest 2 more in failed U.K. terror attacks

GLASGOW, Scotland - Britain announced two new arrests Monday in the failed car bombings in London and at Glasgow's airport, and a witness said police were closing in on the terror network just before attackers rammed the Scottish terminal building.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said police had searched at least 19 locations as part of a "fast-moving investigation" into what British officials have called an al-Qaida-linked network. Media reports have said two of the seven suspects arrested so far may be doctors working in Britain, including an Iraqi.

A Drug Enforcement Administration agent's affidavit said Dr. Phil Astin prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids to Benoit every three to four weeks between May 2006 and May 2007. It says that during a probe of "RX Weight Loss," Benoit was identified as an excessive purchaser of injectable steroids. Prosecutors would not say what ...

U.S. alleges Iran was behind sophisticated January attack that killed 5 U.S. troops in Iraq

BAGHDAD - The U.S. military accused Iran on Monday of a direct role in a sophisticated militant attack that killed five American troops in Iraq, portraying Tehran as waging a proxy war through Shiite extremists.

The claims over the January attack marked a sharp escalation in U.S. accusations that Iran has been arming and financing Iraqi militants, and for the first time linked the Iranian effort to its ally, Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah militia. The allegations could endanger Iraqi efforts to hold a new round of talks between the U.S. and Iran.

Abby 0703

DEAR ABBY: I am a former junior high and high school teacher. I do not agree with your advice to "Deflowered in Pennsylvania" (May 2), the 28-year-old who made some "poor choices" as a teenager and is no longer a virgin. She is dating "Chris," a 26-year-old man who is saving himself for marriage and wants to marry a virgin. You told her that because Chris needs time to think about this discrepancy, she should move on.

Bush commutes 2 1/2-year prison term of former White House aide I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby

WASHINGTON - President Bush spared former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case Monday, stepping into a criminal case with heavy political overtones on grounds that the sentence was just too harsh.

Bush's move came hours after a federal appeals panel ruled Libby could not delay his prison term in the CIA leak case. That meant Libby was likely to have to report to prison soon and put new pressure on the president, who had been sidestepping calls by Libby's allies to pardon the former chief of ...
