Bush prays for peace, well-being of soldiers
FORT HOOD, Texas -- President Bush attended an Easter service Sunday at Fort Hood where he offered prayers for peace and the well-being of American soldiers and their families. For a third straight year, the president made the 50-mile helicopter flight from his ranch in Crawford to mark Christianity's highest holiday at the largest active-duty armored post in the military and one that has contributed thousands of troops to U.S. forces in Iraq.
Past allegations may haunt Jackson trial
SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- Michael Jackson tried to close the door on a 1993 claim of child molestation when he paid millions to a young accuser, but a court hearing in his current trial could resurrect those allegations. Judge Rodney S. Melville is to decide after a hearing today whether prosecutors may introduce past claims to show jurors a pattern of alleged abuse. The jury has been told of the 1993 allegations by a then-13-year-old boy, but the judge has discretion about what details become evidence.
