Watching "Texas Chainsaw 3-D," the latest screen incarnation of the iconic chainsaw-wielding maniac Leatherface, the mind fairly reels. This purported direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic cheerfully ignores that director's own 1986 follow-up, the 1997 and 2003 remakes, the 2006 prequel and even its basic timeline.

Plaxico Burress has to wait a little longer before he makes his Jets practice debut.
Tests done Monday on Texas Rangers President Nolan Ryan showed no new heart problems for the Hall of Fame pitcher, who was hospitalized after experiencing discomfort over the weekend.
he agreed that 20 years is a "reasonable" target date for a balanced budget, provided there is that combination of entitlement reform, increased revenues and other spending cuts.
