What do they want? They're not really sure. When do they want it? For a couple of months, or until the weather gets too cold, anyway.

A bunch of adrift Alinskyites and disorganized organizers from a group called "Adbusters" are converging in New York City for some reason or other. They're bringing tents, sleeping bags, yoga instructors, face paint - and at some point, they'll get around to deciding what their "one demand" is...

A troubling look into drone warfare.

The New Mexico desert gets blistering hot, but inside the small windowless container where Brandon Bryant worked as a drone operator for the U.S. Air Force it stays a cool 63 degrees all year long. Sixty-three finger numbing degrees and Bryant describes sitting with a group of other pilots looking at more than a dozen computer monitors. The crew are directing drones over Afghanistan 6,250 miles away and the screens jump with a two to five second delay, as infrared video sent from the UAVs whips through the air to New Mexico. When the order to fire on a target arrives, Bryant paints the roof of a hut with the laser that will guide in a Hellfire missile fired by the pilot beside him. "These moments are like in slow motion," he says to Abé.

As kids all over America head back to school, decided to ask our favorite Broadway stars to look back at their own years in the classroom, sharing memories of favorite subjects and activities and describing their younger selves.

Who was your favorite teacher and why? "Well, I was homeschooled my whole life until attending college, so my parents were my teachers, and it's not fair to make me choose between them." In school you would have been named most likely to... "Grow up and play pretend for a living."

STOCKTON - Add Stockton's interim Police Chief Blair Ulring to a list of public retirees throughout the state who have returned to work, drawing both a paycheck and a retirement pension.

While it's perfectly legal for Ulring and others like him, it often rubs taxpayers the wrong way. That's especially true in hard economic times when the public is paying close attention to how public officials spend their money. "Most people are shocked when they discover it is legal," he said. Public pension systems were set up in the spirit of providing government employees an adequate income upon retiring, he said. They're not supposed to be given as an incentive to retire early so they can begin a second career, Dean said.

It is the most iconic image of the 1929 Wall Street Crash: financiers, having lost their fortunes, jumping to their deaths from the windows of skyscrapers.

"People think econocide is a problem on Wall Street but it is also affecting people on Main Street, ordinary families who have lost their homes, their jobs, their savings," says Dr Leslie Seppinni, who has treated 14 people with suicidal feelings related to the economy in the last two months.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that the U.S. economy has not recovered three years after the end of the recession. Despite this admission, Carney still saw fit to blame former President George W. Bush.

"I think people are still hurting. I think the economy has not recovered, and it's not where it needs to be," Carney said at his daily White House press briefing Wednesday. Carney said the country was still "emerging" from a recession, despite the fact that the recession ended exactly three years ago in June 2009. Carney pointed to a recent report from the Federal Reserve Board that found that median household net worth had declined by almost 40 percent from 2007 to 2010 - a fact he said highlighted the severity of the 2007-2009 recession.

Four previously passed House bills aimed at limiting excessive regulation affecting the coal industry have remained stalled in the Senate. This prompted the House to include them in legislation crafted by the 112th Congress scheduled for a vote on Friday.

The vote will be on a new bill entitled "End the War on Coal Act of 2012" H.R. 3409, which is comprised of the following five pieces of legislation: The first of these is H.R. 910, the Energy Tax Prevention Act, passed in April 2011. It would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. Essentially, this bill clamps down on unnecessary actions and regulations enacted to address climate change.

The long-awaited inspector general's report on the Justice Department's botched gun-running scheme is finished, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said on Wednesday.

But along with that news comes more questions: Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) are demanding to know why a top ATF official involved in Operation Fast and Furious remains on paid leave from ATF -- while simultaneously drawing a six-figure salary from J.P. Morgan, a major investment bank. In a letter to the acting head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Issa and Grassley asked why the Justice Department would approve such a special arrangement for Bill McMahon.

Yesterday's New York Post had an article that also referred to the Issa report and claimed that Attorney General Eric Holder is involved in the coverup. The administration is preparing to fire Kenneth Melson, the acting head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives...
