London to New York City by car? It could happen if the head of Russian Railways has his way.

Is #AmandaKnox headed back to an Italian jail? We'll know more this week, when Italian Supreme Court either upholds or annuls her conviction. I'm the author of Murder in Italy, about this sensational case. 
Today begins the Amanda Knox story's final chapter in Rome. Will Italy's Supreme Court uphold or annul murder convictions for Knox and Raffaele Sollecito? Will Italy try to extradite Knox? Find out Friday. Remember: Rudy Guede is already serving 16 years for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Charming story."Camp cooking captures something very specific about the spirit of the American people, which in and of itself is also hard to name, but is unmistakable in the novels of Zane Grey, the songbook of the Eagles, and in the life and works of Joan Didion, Wallace Stegner, and George W. Bush (during the era when he still drank beer and owned the Rangers). http://luckypeach.com/the-starry-skillet-camp-cooking-as-american-cuisine/?utm_source=digg&utm_medium=email
