Driver-only ban won’t solve gridlock, possibly unconsitutional – solons

  Banning driver-only cars from Edsa during rush hours is a "temporary solution" and "may be unconstitutional," a party-list congressman said Thursday.   Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin also said Metro Manila traffic is complicated that it was "not just a singles issue."   "Banning single drivers is a temporary solution and may be declared unconstitutional as it unduly restricts property rights without due process," according Villarin. What government should do to lessen vehicles in the metropolis, he said, is to implement environmental laws banning highly-polluting engines as well as unclog roads with illegally parked vehicles and other obstructions especi...Keep on reading: Driver-only ban won’t solve gridlock, possibly unconsitutional – solons.....»»

Shipwreck from World War II battle found off Alaska

  Anchorage, Alaska --- Daryl Weathers remembers trying to pull men from the sea off Alaska's Aleutian Islands after a U.S. Navy destroyer hit a mine left by the Japanese following the only World War II battle fought on North American soil. The explosion, which ripped the stern off the USS Abner Read, also covered many of the men in oil, which prevented some from being rescued. "They were so slippery, you couldn't get ahold of them," the 94-year-old Weathers said this week from his home in Los Angeles. The remaining 250 crew members made the ship watertight, and it limped back to the West Coast for repairs. Only one body among the 71 men killed was recovered.
