During his State of the Union address

policy and balance the budget.

We can work through our differences and

a chance to work.�

The experts believe, as I believe, that
an additional 20 thousand troops

is not going to change the dynamic
there, it will put more of our young

men and women in harms way.�





SOT: SEN. CHUCK HAGEL (R-NE)



"there is no strategy, this is a ping

And this morning the Senate Foreign

VIDEO FROM THE BBC.




Flora the Kimodo dragon has every right
to look smug.



Having never even MET nor mingled --
let alone MATE -- with a male, she

pulled off an EXTREMELY rare lizard
labor of love.



A virgin birth. Yep, full-on immaculate
Kimodo conception.



Now, she's Mom -- and Dad -- to five
little slithering bundles of joy

like this one.



For months, all eyes were on her
eggs...and when they began to crack

open...well, the excitement was
PALPABLE.



ISOLDE MCGEORGE, REPTILE KEEPER

THAT POINT, WHEN THAT FIRST EGG HIT,
WAS THE MOST EXCITING THING THAT'S

PROBABLY EVER HAPPENED IN MY LIFE.



Which may say more about the life of a
reptile keeper than the reptiles

they keep.




YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THE VIRGIN BIRTH
HAS PRODUCED SUCH A STIR.



CHARLIE D'AGATA ON CAMERA.

SCIENTISTS HAD A HUNCH KIMODOS WERE
CAPABLE OF PARTHENOGENESIS -- YOU

KNOW, SELF-REPRODUCTION -- AND THIS
GIVES THEM MORE HOPE FOR BREEDING

THE REPTILES IN THE FUTURE.



The two day old kiddie komodos have
little idea of their celeb status.

And keepers hope the newfound fame
won't go to their heads.



KEVIN BULEY/CHESTER ZOO

WE'RE KEEPING THEM REALLY QUIET JUST SO
THEY GET USED TO THE WORLD

AROUND THEM AND HOPEFULLY THEY'LL GROW
ON AS NORMAL DRAGONS WOULD.



Sadly, for now, Flora's under a
restraining order from the kids.

Apparently she shows no maternal
instincts....and zookeepers fear she

might even eat them, given the chance.
Tough love.

has been arrested and charged with
disorderly intoxication.

After a night out with friends,
Truex was ticketed for urinating in the
corner of a parking garage connected to
Ocean Walk Shoppes in Daytona Beach.

The pit stop cost him a 208-
dollar ticket from a Volusia County
Beach Patrol officer, and a lot of
embrassment.

The police report says he had to
be asked seven times to put his hands
behind his back before he cooperated
with authorities.

It also states that when the
police officer approached Truex, he
told him he hoped what he was doing was
worth 100- dollars, and that Truex
responded by pulling out a 100- dollar
bill.

Truex has appologized to his fans
and his sponsor, Bass Pro shops.
