All three aboard cargo plane survive crash
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A World War II-era cargo plane crashed and burned Monday in the middle of a street in a residential neighborhood, authorities said. All three people on board survived. Two people on the ground were also hurt, one seriously. The DC-3 cargo flight crashed about three miles east of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport shortly after takeoff, said Greg Martin, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman.
Too little chemo given to obese with breast cancer
CHICAGO -- A study suggests overweight breast cancer patients often do not get enough chemotherapy -- and that might help explain why they tend to fare worse than thinner women. Doctors typically use weight, height and body-surface measurements to determine the proper doses of the powerful cancer-fighting drugs. But many doctors avoid that approach with overweight breast cancer patients because they worry about the toxic side effects of large doses, said Dr. Jennifer Griggs, the study's lead author and a breast cancer specialist at the University of Rochester. In her study of 9,672 women who received standard drugs for breast cancer, overweight women were 20 percent more likely than thin women to receive lower doses than a size-based formula would indicate they need; obese women were more than twice as likely; and very obese women were almost six times more likely.

Schwarzenegger calls for special November election
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday called a special election for November to try to change the way California spends money, picks its politicians and hires its teachers. He said the election would continue momentum from the historic 2003 recall that brought him to power, saying he was elected to put "California's financial house in order and reform a government that no longer listened to the people." Schwarzenegger argues that the issues he is bringing to the voters are critical to breaking the grip that public employee unions hold on the Capitol and fixing budget problems in a state where multibillion-dollar budget deficits are the norm.
