Rice Must Testify at Ex-Israel Lobbyists' Spy Trial - Berkshire net jumps on big investment gains - Arizona nuclear plant sealed off, but not in danger - Rudy's bogus healthcare stats: Giuliani claims he might not have survived prostate cancer under "socialized medicine," yet he was covered by a government-provided plan.



Rice Must Testify at Ex-Israel Lobbyists' Spy Trial (bloomberg.com)
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Ex-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and about a dozen other current and former Bush administration officials must testify at the trial of two former lobbyists accused of spying for Israel, a judge said.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis in Alexandria, Virginia, today rejected a government effort to bar testimony by the officials, who also include former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith and National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley.

Berkshire net jumps on big investment gains (marketwatch.com)
Berkshire Hathaway reported a 64% jump in third-quarter net income late Friday after the insurance-focused conglomerate run by Warren Buffett generated big investment gains.
Berkshire's main insurance businesses generated underwriting profits of $486 million in the latest quarter, almost half of the $917 million they generated a year earlier, the company reported.
Berkshire's Geico unit, one of the largest auto insurers in the U.S., made underwriting profits of $335 million in the third quarter, down from $407 million a year ago.

Arizona nuclear plant sealed off, but not in danger (today.reuters.com)
The Palo Verde Nuclear power plant, the largest in the United States, was sealed off on Friday after security guards noticed a suspicious item in an employee's car, said the plant's operator, Arizona Public Service.
"There is no threat to the plant," said Jim McDonald, APS spokesman, who did not say what the item was. McDonald also said the public was not in danger. The plant, which has three nuclear reactors, continued to operate, APS said.

Rudy's bogus healthcare stats (salon.com)
Giuliani claims he might not have survived prostate cancer under "socialized medicine," yet he was covered by a government-provided plan.
To a politician pandering to his party's right wing, a role that Rudolph Giuliani plays every day now, citing his own recovery from prostate cancer as an argument against "socialized medicine" must have seemed like pure genius. The radio ad that went up this week in New Hampshire suggests that Giuliani not only faced down the 9/11 terrorists -- or something like that -- but triumphed over a terrifying disease as well, without the help of any government bureaucrats.
Or as Giuliani himself says in the controversial ad: "I had prostate cancer five, six years ago. My chance of surviving cancer -- and thank God I was cured of it -- in the United States: 82 percent. My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: only 44 percent under socialized medicine."
