The justices on Monday upheld her court-martial without comment.”
  • “Study: Even moderate drinking might be bad for aging brains,” (Kim Painter, USA Today) — “A new study published Tuesday in the medical journal BMJ says moderate drinkers were more likely than abstainers or light drinkers to develop worrisome brain changes that might signal eventual memory loss.
