Out at sea, authorities continued the grim search for clues into the
crash of the Geneva bound MD-11 jetliner.
CBS News has learned after reporting smoke in the cockpit, the pilots
demonstrated no real sense of urgency in trying to get the plane down.
Exasperated officials ordered curiosity seekers to stay away, as they
intensified their search for the plane's so-called black boxes.
Their discovery will hopefully provide information why the jumbo jet
crashed into the sea.
And why the pilots circled for minutes, before attempting a landing.

probably for them to attempt a landing with that amount of fuel on board with that lengthy runway."

The Washington Post is reporting that the University of Virginia Medical Center gave a grieving mother the wrong remains when her child died in March.
Seventeen-year-old Mistie Fritz said her child was born a month premature with severe birth defects on February Sixth in Roanoke.
The baby died in March after being moved to the University Hospital.
But when Fritz went to claim the body, she was given a plastic coffin containing the body of another infant.
The mistake was discovered before the mother left the hospital.
Hospital officials confirmed the account, but say it is fundamentally different from the case of the two girls sent
home to the wrong parents in July of 19-95.[5-Pipe-Bomb]
A pipe bomb shattered the morning calm in Roanoke yesterday.
It happened in Roanoke's finest neighborhood... between Yellow Mountain and Nottingham Roads.
At 8:40 yesterday morning, Norvell West, the Third started to get in his truck, remembered he'd forgotten his cell phone and went back to get it.
As West got into the truck, the bomb went off.
Neighbors heard the blast.
Hume Powers was the first one to get to West.

Almost fall and almost football season and one of my favorite dishes for football season is chili con carne.
OKAY, LET'S GET TO IT.
Very simple to make.
WE START OUT WITH VEGETABLES HERE.
Right. You'll need to brown a pound of ground beef. And then we'll add to that enough onion to make a cup.
OKAY. AND YOU'VE ALREADY CHOPPED SOME, LIKE ANY GOOD COOKING SHOW PARTICIPANT...
WE ALREADY CHOPPED SOME AHEAD OF TIME.
Right. And this is a cup right here. Then you will also. I'll set this aside. I'll put this right here. We'll also need green pepper.
ALRIGHT LET'S CHOP UP SOME GREEN PEPPER. YOU ALREADY CLEANED OUT ALL THE SEEDS AND ALL THAT.
Right. Enough green pepper to make a cup. Okay we'll need to put in the beef and brown that and with that we'll put in the onion and green pepper. We'll cook this for about 15 minutes. That will allow the beef to brown and the onion to get tender. Then we'll add the other ingredients. Okay the beef's brown, the onion's tender, the pepper's tender and to that we will add a 1-pound 12-ounce can of whole tomatoes.
Yeah. Then we'll put in tomato sauce. This is an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce. Now we're ready for the spices.
HOW ABOUT I TAKE OVER THE STIRRING.
AND ARE THESE TOMATOES GOING TO KIND OF FALL APART?
Yes they will. The more they cook the more they fall apart. It makes them really good. We'll need two teaspoons of chili powder. Then we'll add cayene pepper and paprika.
SO NOW WHAT HAPPENS. WE STIR IT UP?
Stir that up and we'll cook this for about an hour and half.
By that time the tomatoes will be just falling apart. One more thing, I almost forgot. One more thing we need to add a teaspoon of salt.
ARE WE GOING TO COVER THIS GUY UP AND LET IT GO?
Yes, we'll cover it and let it go. One thing about this recipe, if you really needed it in a hurry, you can cook it uncovered for 45 minutes.
ALRIGHT IT TOOK US AN HOUR AND A HALF?
An hour and a half and I think it's almost ready.
AND IT'S STARTING TO SMELL PRETTY NICE.
YOU'VE GOT THE STEAM COMING UP.
I like to serve this over a bed of white rice. Oh, this is nicely done. Let's do this. We'll garnish this with cheese and microwave that for about a minute.
HOW ABOUT I HELP YOU WITH THE SCOOPING ON THE CHILI.
Yes, if you will do that, that will be wonderful.
ALTHOUGH I'M NOTORIOUS FOR SPILLING THINGS. SO IF YOU'RE KITCHEN IS WONDERFULLY CLEAN HERE.
Not this time.
OKAY, NO SPILLING.
There you go.
IS THAT ENOUGH OR DO WE NEED SOME MORE?
Let's do one more scoop.
ALRIGHT ONE MORE SCOOP HERE. VERY NICE. I'LL SPREAD IT OUT SO IT LOOKS NICE.

(( "54" brings the disco era back with a vengeance.
Mike Myers is eerie as the drugged up, but crafty owner of Studio 54, Steve Rubell, dissipated, decadent and loving it. The story of the fall of Studio 54 is seen from the perspective of one of the busboys, Shane, a pretty young man from New Jersey who wants to leave his working class roots behind and "make it" in the disco bar scene. Ryan Phillippe brings an appropriate naivete and awe to the character. He has good support from Salma Hayek as Anita, a coat check girl at 54 with aspirations to be the next Donna Summer. Brecken Meyer is Anita's husband Greg, too short and too straight to move from busboy to the coveted job of bartender. Shane also meets his dream girl, soap opera actress Julie (Neve Campbell) who is a Studio 54 regular.
"54" gets a C+. The plot is thin and almost unnecessary; the characters are sketchy and unformed. What the movie does very well with its strobe lights, neon, unstoppable music and atmosphere of excess and decadence, is recreate a time and place that in our own lawsuit-crazy, AIDS fearful, just-say-no-to-drugs-message-filled era we have almost forgotten ever existed. ))
