Election year politics cloud reality
By Aja Oishi

Both presidential candidates promise to keep the U.S. militarily involved in Iraq.

Collectable card game turns politics into War!
By Devin D. O'Leary
Theoretically, by next week we'll know whom the next president of the United States is.

Dateline: Austria—Somewhere in Europe a witch is homeless. Officials in Hietzing have decided to demolish a life-size gingerbread house constructed by a group of eccentric artists. The house, designed by the Austrian Guggenheim movement, was erected to “give locals something cheerful to look at.” Unfortunately, the locals say the structure has been a magnet for hungry rats and noisy birds, who have eaten away most of the gingerbread bricks and tiles. The Vienna-based artists have been ordered to dismantle the house after government inspectors declared it a health risk.
