HEARTLESS: Woman Commits Suicide and Takes her Baby with her as She Jumps From Building

The scratches on a 10-month-old’s face are the only sign of his terrifying eight-story plunge from a Harlem window after his mom took him on her fatal leap.
The baby boy, Keston, showed no signs of any major injuries while under observation at Harlem Hospital on Thursday. It was just a day after lawyer Cynthia Wachenheim strapped the baby to her chest and jumped from her Bradhurst Ave. apartment window, sources said.
Wachenheim, 44, landed on her back, absorbing the impact of the fatal fall. An autopsy found that she suffered a fractured skull and broken bones in her wrist and right leg.
Sources said she jumped nearly three hours after her husband, Hal Bacharach, 48, stormed out of the apartment during an argument.

What Happens When US Is After You: $2 trillion spent and 190,000 lives lost to kill one dictator

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq on March 19, 2003, the Costs of War Project of the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University released a report on the casualties and expenditures of the Iraq war.

The preamble of the report states, "The United States invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003 on the false pretext that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. The mass destruction of the invasion, occupation, and civil war followed, and amplified the societal and health disintegration caused by the previous decade of sanctions. Iraqi lives and communities remain war-devastated ten years on. American military and contractor families struggle with the loss of loved ones as well as the emotional and economic burdens of living with long-term injuries and illnesses. Total US federal spending associated with the Iraq war has been $1.7 trillion through FY2013. In addition, future health and disability payments for veterans will total $590 billion and interest accrued to pay for the war will add up to $3.9 trillion."

Photos: 8 Perfectly Preserved Dead World Leaders You Can Visit

Traditions aren’t traditions if they’re not a little weird, right?
“We have decided to prepare the body of our “Comandante President,” to embalm it so that it remains open for all time for the people,” Venezuelan Vice President Nicolás Maduro declared on Thursday, in announcing plans to preserve Hugo Chávez’s body and showcase it in a glass tomb at a military museum near the presidential palace.
“Just like Ho Chi Minh. Just like Lenin. Just like Mao Zedong.”
In fact, it turns out Maduro was missing a few names. The practice of embalming national (mainly communist) leaders and boxing their bodies in glass for posterity may have gone out of vogue with the end of the Cold War, but Chávez still has distinguished company.
