  1. Snow Is Delicious. But Is It Dangerous To Eat?Read the original story w/Photo

    22 hrs ago | KABC-AM Los Angeles

    I asked Jeff S. Gaffney, professor of chemistry at University of Arkansas at Little Rock, if we were to package snow and put it on grocery store shelves, what would we have to put on the ingredient list? "Primarily water," he says, but also "various and sundry things depending on where it [comes from]" - things like sulphates, nitrates, formaldehyde or mercury. As it falls through the sky, snow, with its intricate latticework, forms a sort of net for catching pollutants that may be in the atmosphere.

  5. State's same-sex marriage dispute now a clash of courts, experts sayRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Mar 1 | NWAonline

    As a federal judge considers whether to lift a stay on her ruling outlawing Arkansas' bans on same-sex marriage, creating the potential for a second round of same-sex marriages until the issue is decided nationally, the Arkansas Supreme Court still hasn't ruled on an appeal of a similar state-court ruling. Although some observers think the state case is irrelevant at this point, given that federal law is the law of the land and the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide gay-marriage questions by late June, others say it's not that simple. 2 comments
