Nearly two-thirds of American voters believe that human population growth is driving other animal species to extinction and that if the situation gets worse, society has a "moral responsibility to address the problem," according to new national public opinion poll. A slightly lower percentage of those polled - 59% - believes that population growth is an important environmental issue and 54% believe that stabilizing the population will help protect the environment. The survey was conducted on behalf of the nonprofit Center for Biological Diversity, which unlike other environmental groups has targeted population growth as part of its campaign to save wildlife species from extinction.

When my editor assigned me a story on balance, I wondered if it was some sort of sick joke. I am a full-time working mother of two who is running so hard my head spins for an hour every night in the dark making compulsive lists of what I have to do for job, kids, husband, school, soccer, piano, life. On weekends, I run to exhaustion to quiet my monkey mind. People talk to me about balance and I laugh. I know I am not alone. Life is getting faster, and people are expected to do more and more at higher and higher speeds.

Today is April Fool's Day, also known as All Fool's Day and, unofficially perhaps, Don't Trust the Media Day.  Yes, yes, that's every day in some circles. But on April Fool's Day, the warning has particular resonance. Because year after year, April Fool's Day proves that some people will believe anything if it's presented with a straight-enough face. Take the BBC report on the bumper Swiss spaghetti harvest. The vanquishing of the spaghetti weevil made such a thing possible, the BBC reported in 1957.

The last time Staples Center was filled to capacity for a prominent fight that attracted a national television audience, the insistence of one observant trainer saved the California State Athletic Commission from potentially suffering more than embarrassment. That was the night two hardened, plaster-caked inserts were to be wrapped into the hands of Antonio Margarito as he prepared to defend his world welterweight title against Shane Mosley. "I know for a fact that if I wouldn't have been there saying something, he would've walked right into that ring," said Nazim Richardson, Mosley's veteran trainer.

The U.S. Census Bureau's plan to stop producing special demographic reports on the San Fernando Valley would hurt local efforts to generate social and economic improvements, several Los Angeles officials said Monday. The officials said census statistics focused on the Valley and its more than 1.7 million residents help show how the region is distinct from the rest of the city and county. The statistics also help representatives pursue federal and state funds for the area, they said.

In the week since the Supreme Court handed down its decision on the presidential race, the ruling has attracted harsh criticism from many legal scholars and passionate defenses from others. Critics say the five justices in the majority decided what result they wanted to reach--an end to ballot recounts--and then cobbled together a weak rationale to get there.
