. The unusually bold assault appeared to be the largest by insurgents
against an American target since the Jan. 30 elections.

(...)X-celling Over Men

Men are always telling me not to generalize about them.
But a startling new study shows that science is backing me up here.
Research published last week in the journal Nature reveals that women are genetically more complex than scientists ever imagined
, while men remain the simple creatures they appear
"Alas," said one of the authors of the study, the Duke University genome expert Huntington Willard, "genetically speaking, if you've met one man, you've met them all. We are, I hate to say it, predictable. You can't say that about women.
Men and women are farther apart than we ever knew. It's not Mars or Venus. It's Mars or Venus, Pluto, Jupiter and who knows what other planets."
Women are not only more different from men than we knew. Women are more different from each other than we knew - creatures of "infinite variety," as Shakespeare wrote
."We poor men only have 45 chromosomes to do our work with because our 46th is the pathetic Y that has only a few genes
which operate below the waist and above the knees," Dr. Willard observed. "In contrast, we now know that women have the full 46 chromosomes that they're getting work from
and the 46th is a second X that is working at levels greater than we knew."

(...)Bush's Re-election Lifts Circulation at Liberal Magazines
By SARA IVRY
Published: March 21, 2005
Sheepish though they may be about profiting from George Bush's re-election,
some liberal magazines have seen subscriptions rise
during the recent political season."We had a huge spike in orders beginning the day after the election,"
said Art Stupar, vice president for circulation at The Nation, which comes out weekly. "In fact, our Web site, in the week following the election, generated 2,600 subscriptions."
Typically, The Nation gets no more than 500 subscriptions a week through its Web site,
he said.Overall subscriptions to The Nation reached 184,000
at the end of December, up 24,000 from the previous year
; they have doubled since 2000, with a spurt in 2003, when the war in Iraq got under way.
"You could say that all the way through, for four years, we've benefited from the follies of the Bush administration
," Mr. Stupar said.

(...)Bush Defends Offering Video News Releases
By RICHARD W. STEVENSON
Published: March 17, 2005
WASHINGTON, March 16 - President Bush on Wednesday defended his administration's practice of providing television stations with video news releases that resemble actual news reports
, saying that the practice was legal
and that it was up to broadcasters to make clear
that any of the releases they used on the air
were produced by the government."This has been a longstanding practice of the federal government to use these types of videos,"
Mr. Bush said. "The Agricultural Department
, as I understand it,
has been using these videos for a long period of time. The Defense Department
, other departments have been doing so. It's important
that they be based on the guidelines set out by the Justice Department
."Mr. Bush said it would be "helpful if local stations then disclosed to their viewers"
that any portions of the releases
they used were produced by the government, but he added that, "evidently, in some cases, that's not the case."The New York Times reported on Sunday that at least 20 government agencies have made and distributed hundreds of video news releases in the last four years. Many of them were broadcast on local news programs without any public acknowledgement of the government's role in their production.
