  4. Doctors legally forced to allow girl to commit suicide by Anti-Freeze!

  5. New York State Correction Department Nurses Overtime Pay

  9. Should the illness of an "important person" be revealed?
    It is my opinion that peoples health (no matter what their standing) is private unless they wish to share the information. In this case I see no reason why the CEO of Apple should have to reveal...
