HAITI UPDATE: Struggle to aid Haitians as fears of unrest rise

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Pushed to the far edge of desperation, earthquake-ravaged Haitians dumped decaying bodies into mass graves and begged for water and food Friday amid fear that time is running out to avoid chaos and to rescue anyone still alive in the wreckage.

The U.S. military brought some relief, taking control of the airport, helping coordinate flights bringing in aid and evacuating foreigners and the injured. Medical teams, meanwhile, set up makeshift hospitals, workers started to clear the streets of corpses and water was being distributed in pockets of the city.

Review: 'The Book of Eli'

I'm at a loss for words, so let me say these right away: "The Book of Eli" is very watchable. You won't be sorry you went. It grips your attention, and then at the end throws in several WTF! moments, which are a bonus. They make everything in the entire movie impossible and incomprehensible - but, hey, WTF.

Review: 'The Lovely Bones'

"The Lovely Bones" is a deplorable film with this message: If you're a 14-year-old girl who has been brutally raped and murdered by a serial killer, you have a lot to look forward to. You can get together in heaven with the other teenage victims of the same killer and gaze down in benevolence upon your family members as they mourn you and realize what a wonderful person you were. Sure, you miss your friends, but your fellow fatalities come dancing to greet you in a meadow of wildflowers, and how cool is that?

Andre Hollings: The taking of America

Admittedly, President Barack Obama is a man of sterling qualities. He has a temperament and charm befitting one probed by the glare of history's contemplation; an intellect suited to the complexities of a seamless 21st century world; and a big-speech eloquence worthy of the historian's pen.
