Uranus Now Has 21 Moons

And you thought it only has 20, well we remember when it only had 5!

Today astronomers confirmed a very small body (6 - 12 miles wide) in similar orbits to existing moons, making the total for this planet 21.

Uranus is very, very far from the Earth and can only been seen with the aid of a small telescope.

Russian Hostage Deaths

At least 116 hostages seemed to have died due to the effects or side effects of a mysterious "gas" used by Russian troops when the stormed a theater being held by Chechen terrorists who were.

Know one will yet confirm what the gas was, except to say it was similar to those gases used for surgery (Halothane is very common, which is a toxic, highly explosive fume made by soaking cotton balls in a liquid, enclosing them in glass and letting the patient breath the fumes that "boil" off).

Thus far the terrorists were known to have killed at least 2 of the 800 hostages taken at the theater by the terrorists, with 118 lives taken during the rescue attempt attributed to the effects of the gas.

There have also been disputed reports of the nature of the terrorists and their internal actions. It has been said the terrorists were characterized with pictures of booze bottles. The captives who have spoken with news crew say that the terrorists were highly trained and soldier-like, which is not in keeping with the images shown of booze bottles.

Sorry 'bout that chief!

On this evening children usually dress up in costumes of famous characters or as spooks (ghosts, gobblins, witches, monsters) and go from door to door yelling "trick or treat" as they hold out a bag and await a candy treat.


Columbine Records

A judge has ordered that the juvinile court records of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who shot over 35 people (killing 13) at a school in Columbine, Colorado, be released to the public. These records cover a program that the two boys were in as part of a court sentencing over a break into to steal tools from a van.

Klebold's parents may appeal this ruling as they were opposed to the release on privacy rights.
