Dog downsizing: Meet Midge, a 6-pound police K-9 dog (08/06/06)
CHARDON, Ohio -- Though she's only a 6-pound Chihuahua-rat terrier mix who looks like she belongs in Paris Hilton's purse, Midge has the will, skill and nose of a 100-pound German shepherd.

No clear winners in election-year battle (08/06/06)
WASHINGTON -- Republican lawmakers called it the "trifecta bill" -- evoking the image of a three-time winning ticket at the racetrack.

Landis likely to lose crown (08/06/06)
PARIS -- The Tour de France no longer calls him champion. His cycling team cut him loose. About the only chance Floyd Landis has of keeping his prized yellow jersey will now likely be decided by an appeals process that could drag on for months.

By SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE If you happened to be a child in the New York City of 1859, awaiting a letter from, say, Aunt Isabel in Lafayette, Ind. -- containing, perhaps, a shiny silver dollar -- you were going to be disappointed.

And what earns this delayed delivery a place in the annals of postal irony is that the letter you were anticipating was aboard America's first airmail flight...

Too good to be true (08/06/06)
Scams have been around for all of recorded history. Elaborate schemes intended to bilk as many gullible targets as possible once took time and patience and usually relied on forms of communication that could take days or even weeks. Then came the telephone. Scammers quickly adopted the phone as a tool of the trade. Now unsuspecting marks were lured with instant promises of instant riches...
