EntreMed pharma (Nasdaq: ENMD) reprimanded by NASDAQ for dropping under $1 per share

Continental Airlines to charge $25 extra pieces of checked luggage, except for members of SkyTeam Elite, Elite Plus, Presidential Plus, oh nevermind

The Right to Bear Arms people are all up in arms over early prison release program

Despite a decrease of some costs of owning and maintaining a car, the cost to operate one jumped to 54.1 cents per mile
