Zacarias Moussaoui's mother told Larry King Sunday that every day her son wakes up in prison and prays for the destruction of America. She said he's good, and she's right. So far, four states are on fire, two are under water, and an asteroid just missed us.
FBI laboratory scientists said Sunday they have determined that the anthrax mailed to Senate offices last fall was fresh. They say it's only two years old. If the stuff is two years old and it's still fresh, it's not anthrax, it's Velveeta.
