CFN

Gazette staff

Please don’t eat the babies


CFN

Gazette staff
The upcoming session of the state Legislature will wrestle with budgets, taxes and other important-sounding stuff, but perhaps no bill has fed the imagination as that of a measure aimed at banning the use of aborted fetuses in food.

Meth-odology


CFN

Gazette staff
Speaking of drugs, it looks like the state Legislature won’t be making your decongestant of choice prescription-only anytime soon. A state House panel last week rejected a measure to require a prescription for pseudoephedrine, despite the law enforcement community rallying in support of the bill.
