Unheard of, but true, Bush calls Roberta Stewart and apologizes for being snubbed.

Roberta Stewart is the one who fought and successfully won to have a Pentacle placed on her husband's tombstone. She plans to release a documentary film "A Hero Denied" to educate people on the tolerance of religion. She is widow of Sgt. Patrick Stewart, but was not invited to a visit Bush had planned to Nevada, even though other widows were. She is quite out-spoken about this, thus feels she was purposely overlooked. You can follow this story in About.com.
I find it interesting that Pagan's felt Christianity was a cult and would not survive. The intolerance towards women and mere thought of a torturing hell were some "scary" practices. They were sure this religion would simply go away. Was it a mistake to keep quiet about Christianity? Does Scientology seem weird to us, as it did to Pagans? Who knows maybe 200 years from now we will be honoring an alien God. Religions, all religions are good, so long as it does not provide opinion and rules which extinguish your connection with any human or earthly thing. I don't think such religion exists. Some may come close, Buddhism and Paganism?

Scientists interpret physics behind invisibility cloaks from PhysOrg.com
Is a perfect invisible cloak theoretically possible? Are there certain wavelengths—such as those in the visible spectrum—that can’t be made invisible? How will using imperfect materials affect the performance of a cloak? Scientists from Zhejiang University and MIT have recently analyzed the physics behind invisibility cloaks in an attempt to answer some of these questions.
