Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is the leading cause of death among women in Vermont. During the last decade, 76 percent of adult women killed in domestic situations, died at the hands of current or former husbands or boyfriends. Many never received help.

Early Show Correspondent Debbye Turner talks to Wynona Ward, who is on a mission to change that in her home state. She turned her own life around and in the process, has helped hundreds of other women stand up for themselves with the program, Have Justice - Will Travel (HJWT).

Age of Spin

During the U.S. Iraqi Freedom campaign, many journalists, soldiers and politicians were made famous from constant press about the war. But few will be as recognizable as Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, the Iraqi Information Minister, who commanded daily attention with his Iraqi spin on events during the war.

A group of Americans were so amused by the Iraqi Minister of Information's press briefings that they created a Web site called WeLoveTheIraqiInformationMinister.com. The Web site dedication is filled with actual quotes. It also has some fabricated sayings from Saeed al-Sahhaf about famous confrontations.
