Russia and Georgia appear to be at war, and THIS is the CNN Home page:
updated 56 minutes ago'These aren't Cheech and Chong plants'
That's the top story.

- CNNMoney: Dow surges on sinking oil
- Russian, Georgian troops in fierce fighting
Not nearly as important as the contents of John Edwards' pants is:

We now return you to a society in decline.
