Seeing red. Hungary declares a state of emergency after a dam bursts -- and floods villages with toxic crimson sludge.

Crime pays...and pays, and pays. A French trader's prison sentence is the least of his problems; a judge's insistence that he pay back billions of Euros is the most. 

Assault of the Earth. A pioneering climate-change scientist says a new tar-sands project shouldn't go ahead has planned.

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose. But "Freedom" has caused Jonathan Franzen to lose a number of things -- including his glasses. 

Recessive forehead, progressive heart. Neanderthals certainly looked a little rough -- but they were actually surprisingly tender.

As It Happens, the Tuesday edition. Radio that assumes if the clowns have a lawyer, she's working pro Bozo.
