WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2009 - Military members will see an average raise of 2.5 percent in housing allowance rates in 2010, a BAH program analyst for the Defense Department said today.

The increase comes to average of around $37 per month for the more than 900,000 servicemembers expected to draw the basic allowance for housing in 2010. Some areas will see a higher increase, while others will see less, Cheryl Anne Woehr said.

State high court blocks execution

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's top court halted Wednesday's planned execution of a man convicted of strangling three elderly women with their own stockings in the 1970s and ordered a judge to decide whether to allow more testing of evidence his attorney said could exonerate him.

The Georgia Supreme Court's 5-2 decision required a Muscogee County judge to determine if authorities should conduct DNA testing of hair, semen and fingernail scrapings found on Carlton Gary's alleged victims. The testing was not available when he was convicted of the murders in 1986 and sentenced to death.

A climate of doom

The phrase "doomsday cult" entered our collective vocabulary after John Lofland published his 1966 study, "Doomsday Cult: A Study of Conversion, Proselytization, and Maintenance of Faith."

That assertion is supported by common sense as well as research into parenting outcomes, which shows that children raised by loving parents who are no-nonsense when it comes to discipline score the highest on measures of adjustment. A story submitted by a reader underscores the point:
