Return of the ‘Cell Phones Cause Cancer’ Scare

Cell phones have become so popular that only the most dire medical findings would be likely to significantly reduce their use, but the financial and legal fallout from product liability lawsuits could deliver a major blow to the industry, with one likely result being a significant increase in the cost of cell phones, from both redesigns meant to minimize potentially harmful radiation, and the cost of major lawsuits.

No Congressional GOP Leaders Will Support Reducing Immigration

Not one Republican leadership office was willing to even reply to the question of whether the federal government should reduce legal immigration. Every GOP leader’s office refused to answer, to express any support for reduced future immigration, or to offer any thought at all on the subject.
