'An oncologist who works for one of the two largest cancer clinics in Torrance, but asked not to be identified, said that he has seen it benefit patients, decreasing pain, stimulating appetite, enhancing moods and reducing nausea.

But the cancer specialist said he doesn't recommend it to patients in part because of the conflict between federal and state laws."
Nick Green. "US CA Cure or Crime." American Medical Marijuana Association 30 November 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.americanmarijuana.org/>
"I'm hoping that more people realize marijuana is not a dangerous drug -- it's just a medication. I'm hoping we get more people with that point of view on the Supreme Court -- and on every court."
Nick Green. "US CA Cure or Crime." American Medical Marijuana Association 30 November 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.americanmarijuana.org/>
"Peter Warren, the San Pedro-based spokesman of the California Medical Association, which represents the state's 35,000 physicians, goes further.

The CMA believes that while more studies of marijuana are needed, it certainly isn't as dangerous a drug as painkillers like Demerol that can kill in high enough dosages, he said."

"HUSKERS HURTIN' FOR CERTAIN
Here's partial recap of this year's Husker Hurt List:
1.) A losing season for the first time since 1961.
2.) Not going to a bowl game for the first time since 1968.
3.) The worst loss in Husker history, losing to T-Tech, 70-10.
4.) A winless November for the first time since 1957.
5.) A quarterback who set the all time passing yardage for a game.
6.) That same quarterback set the all time record for interceptions for a season at 19."
Cordes, Henry J. "No more firings, Osbourne says." 1 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=38&u_sid=1272421>.
"But you certainly won't find the former Husker football coach joining fans who are on the fire-Steve-Pederson bandwagon."
Cordes, Henry J. "No more firings, Osbourne says." 1 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=38&u_sid=1272421>.
In his first public statement about the Huskers' recently complete 5-6 season, the former Husker head coach said he shares fans' disappointment to see the streaks end.

"I feel bad, I really feel bad, for a lot of people," he said.
Cordes, Henry J. "No more firings, Osbourne says." 1 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=38&u_sid=1272421>.
"Osborne said it probably was inevitable that the streak would end sometime. He said he remembers feeling a little relief during his coaching days when the Huskers would win their sixth or seventh game."
Chatelin, Dirk. "Callahan's recruiting focus is fuzzy logic." Daily Nebraskan. 2 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.dailynebraskan.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2004/12/02/41aeadda00d06>
"But the notion that recruiting alone will vault Nebraska back to the promised land presents problems."
Chatelin, Dirk. "Callahan's recruiting focus is fuzzy logic." Daily Nebraskan. 2 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.dailynebraskan.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2004/12/02/41aeadda00d06>
"History tells us that about half of every recruiting class never makes a significant impact in a program. What’s unusual about Nebraska’s recent bad fortune is that the players who tended not to “make it” were in many cases the crème de la crème of those classes, according to recruiting gurus."
Chatelin, Dirk. "Callahan's recruiting focus is fuzzy logic." Daily Nebraskan. 2 December 2004. 2 December 2004. <http://www.dailynebraskan.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2004/12/02/41aeadda00d06>
"But, at some point, a coach must maximize the potential of his current players, something Callahan didn’t appear interested in doing this season. Installing the future offense to lure recruits trumped all else."
DONNA DE LA CRUZ, Associated Press Writer
"The White House renewed its search for a homeland security chief Saturday as the candidate President Bush (news - web sites) thought ideal apologized for an immigration problem involving a family housekeeper that forced him to withdraw."

Until now, the protracted U.S. military buildup in the Persian Gulf had no handle of its own. Instead, the Pentagon referred to it as simply an extension of "Operation Enduring Freedom," the name of America's war against terror in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Reportedly, the military leadership preferred "Desert Freedom" because it continued the "desert" theme begun with 1991's "Operation Desert Shield," the six-month buildup to the Persian Gulf War, and "Operation Desert Storm," the air and ground assault that followed.

But the civilian leadership, which has final dibs, opted for "Iraqi Freedom" because it was more explicit.
