Front Page: Chinese Milk Toll Rises, Embassy Attack Kills 16, House Passes Offshore Drilling

  • Chinese Milk Toll Rises:
    Twenty-two brands of Chinese baby formula have been found to contain toxic levels of melamine. The tainted milk has sickened 6,200 babies and killed three, the toll five times higher than previously announced. Those diagnosed with "acute kidney failure" numbers 158, and the Chinese health minister says they will all receive free health care.

  • Embassy Attack Kills 16:
    An attack by Islamist militants on the US Embassy in Yemen has left 16 people dead. The second strike on the highly secured compound in six months, a group called Jihad in Yemen has claimed responsibility. Fierce gunfire erupted after a suicide bomber detonated a car at the entrance. The embassy spokesman said, "We are very aware that there is a continuing threat here and we are continuously reevaluating our security status."

  • House Passes Offshore Drilling:
    The US House of Representatives passed legislation this morning that lifts the ban on offshore drilling and opens much of the coastline to exploration. The vote was 236-189 in favor of the plan which gives individual states the option to explore between 50 and 100 miles from their shores, and completely opens areas 100 miles out.

oh no...so does that mean the profits shift from Saudi to Halliburton now? without our gas prices going down. And how will this effect the deep sea fishing industry?

Doesn't the senate have to approve it too before they can actually drill? Am I just confused?

I've spent the afternoon playing with kids. Now that I'm here... This is a sham! Isn't the largest portion of the available oil on the shelf which is within the 50 mile range? We've effectively passed legislation which does nothing to help us out!
