Vermont town seeks Bush, Cheney arrests
President Bush may soon have a new reason to avoid left-leaning Vermont: In one town, activists want him subject to arrest for war crimes.
A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.

Historic low in NYC, Chicago homicides
Chicago and New York are about to close out 2007 with the lowest number of homicides in more than 40 years, while cities such as Baltimore, Atlanta and Miami have seen killings go up because of what police say is a surge in guns and gang violence.
New York City reported 488 slayings as of Friday, versus 596 for all of 2006. The city is on track to have the lowest number of killings since reliable record-keeping started in 1963.

Carnation killer apologized to children
After slaughtering their parents, Joseph McEnroe apologized to his girlfriend's young niece and nephew before shooting both in the head to end a Christmas Eve massacre, prosecutors alleged Friday.
But even as they filed aggravated first-degree murder charges against McEnroe and Michele Anderson, prosecutors could not say what might have driven the couple in the violent killing spree.

Crisis Overseas Is Sudden Test for Candidates
For the presidential candidates, the assassination of Benazir Bhutto has emerged as a ghoulish sort of test: a chance to project leadership and competence — or not — on a fast-moving and nuanced foreign policy issue.
Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware and Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, Democrats who have struggled to attract voters' attention, edged into the spotlight on Friday after talking about Pakistan for weeks.

US new-home sales weakest for 12 years
Sales of new homes in the US plunged to a 12-year low last month, signalling that the flagging housing market will remain a drag on the US economy well into 2008.
News of the bigger-than-expected dip reversed Wall Street's buoyant start, sending the S&P, the Nasdaq Composite Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average lower before they recovered to close slightly up.
