((With Saddam now spending his days being interrogated--President Bush sent a message to him. President Bush: "GOOD RIDDANCE. THE WORLD IS BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU, MR SADDAM HUSSEIN. AND I FIND IT VERY INTERESTING THAT WHEN THE HEAT GOT ON YOU, YOU DUG YOURSELF A HOLE AND YOU CRAWLED IN IT."
It was a hole--more than six feet deep-- where US soldiers found the Butcher of Baghdad hiding Saturday night. They said they were about to throw a hand grenade into the pit when Saddam spoke to them in English.
MAJOR BRIAN REED/FOURTH INFANTRY DIVISION: "HE SAID THAT I'M SADDAM HUSSEIN. I'M THE PRESIDENT OF IRAQ, AND I'M WILLING TO NEGOTIATE. AND THEN THE RESPONSE FROM US SOLDIERS WAS 'PRESIDENT BUSH SENDS HIS REGARDS."
Though Saddam has yielded some information to his interrogators US officials say he has greeted most questions with a mix of sarcasm and defiance. They say he's denied that his regime had weapons of mass destruction or ties to al Qaida. As for his trial--President Bush says America will work with the Iraqis on how try Sadam for his crimes--he then leveled another message to the former dictator. BUSH: "YOU'LL BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, SOMETHING YOU DID AFFORD THE PEOPLE YOU BRUTALIZED IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY."
In spite of the charges against Saddam--hundreds in his hometown of Tikrit continue to protest his capture. THOSE DEMONSTRATIONS ALONG WITH MORE VIOLENCE TODAY--PROVES THAT JUST BECAUSE SADDAM IS NOW GONE--IRAQ IS STILL A VERY DANGEROUS AND UNSTABLE LAND. DREW LEVINSON, CBS NEWS CAPITOL HILL.))

Prosecutors in New Jersey say a former nurse is claiming to have killed as many as 40 patients during a 16 year career at hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Saying he does not need an attorney, Charles Cullen told a judge at a hearing today that he plans to plead guilty.


He's being held on one MILLION dollars bail after a prosecutor told a New Jersey court that Cullen had confessed to numerous deaths.
Cullen has been charged in the June death of a Catholic clergyman and the attempted murder of a 40-year-old woman who were patients at Somerset Medical Center in New Jersey.
Cullen told authorities he had administered lethal doses of drugs and had killed many others since 1987.

Six months ago, 55 year old Alex Ching could barely walk:
Alex Ching/Vestibular Therapy patient Sot: In my house I was walking on my knees - it was awful
She was at work one day returning from a break when suddenly she started to feel dizzy:
Sot: .. couldnt keep my balance, had to actually lean on the walls because I felt like I was falling (:06)
Alex went to doctor after doctor trying to find a diagnosis. All tests..including an brain scan came up negative. Medication for vertigo caused bad side effects and didnt really help. Meanwhile, the diziness was getting worse.

Nat sot...that's good Alex.


Then someone suggested she try something called vestibular therapy....a range of exercises that help retrain your vestibular systems - tiny communication centers in each ear - that control balance.
Super: Tara Denham/Rusk Institute/NYU Sot: if one side is telling you one thing and the other side is telling your brain another thing you get mixed messages
STANDUP BRIDGE. Hence - the dizziness. As a neurologist, I can tell you are a multitude of reasons for the sudden imbalance: an inner ear infection, a blow to the head - a stroke or an upset of crystals which naturally exist in the ear - All ages can suffer from this...but it's the number one reason people over 65 seek a doctors help)
Alex Sot: I felt depressed as if something was wrong with my head - as if Im imagining it..

(Regaining confidence is also part of the rehabilitation. Patients work

on head movements and hand eye coordination, using balance machines - therapy aimed at getting back into the real world.

In 1990 there were just 20 centers in the country offering vestibular therapy. There are now more than 200. Dr. Sean Kenniff, CBS News ))
