A 90-year old woman in San Diego, California is selling mail-order suicide kits for $60.  When her age was revealed, most people were shocked.  Who would have guessed there was a Mrs. Kevorkian?

Beating out Ford and a Turkish auto company, Nissan has been awarded a billion dollar ten-year contract to provide taxicabs for the City of New York.  Design features include a sight-seeing sunroof, an I-Pad plug-in and a more private “snuggle seat” for hookers and their clients.
