A second-grader waiting at a bus stop in the dark was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Pennsylvania on Thursday morning. The driver allegedly wasn't even aware that the child had been hit.
It's generally acknowledged that the modern dog -- everything from the tiny little Pekingese to the lumbering English Mastiff -- descended from wolves. That split took place so long ago that nobody is certain when people first started keeping dogs as domestic pets.
It seems almost impossible to believe that medical professionals in this day and age would forget to take basic sanitary measures -- like wearing gloves -- to protect their newborn patients. Unfortunately, it happens -- and it happened again recently at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Motorcycles occupy a niche out on the road -- and it isn't a pretty one. They are very vulnerable out on the road, and when they get into an accident, the rider or riders on them are highly likely to suffer serious injuries.
