The new crop of contestants will live among the Mayan ruins and in the course of several weeks, betray and humiliate each other in a mad, internecine dash for the $1 million prize.  What locations will CBS think of next? Rwanda? Auschwitz? Or Springfield, where 24 people have been shot, stabbed and beaten todeath in less than 24 months? Survivor

Alizabeth Showers is not yet 21 and already she yearns for innocence. This is what losing two friends to homicide does to a young person. Courage
Minority is a damaging word in certain circumstances. It's OK to use in reference to the "minority leader" in the House of Representatives. It's fine for describing the dissenting view from high court justices. But I don't like it to be used in reference to me because I'm Puerto Rican, nor in regards to the other 40 million Latinos here. That's just too many people to call a minority. Word
Carmelo Loran watched a documentary about the Iraq War, and the arm that he doesn't have ached for the wounded soldiers.Veteran
In the heart of Philadelphia, powerful political leaders brought boxes of chocolate and flowers to court the Latino vote. In reality, the chocolate was their sweet talk and the flowers their accomplishments. Woo
President Josiah Bartlet, a liberal former New Hampshire governor in his second term in the White House, is played by Spanish-Irish-American Martin Sheen, aka Martin Estevez. On the same television show, "The West Wing," Jimmy Smits plays a former Texas lawmaker named Matt Santos who has just announced his candidacy for president. This is not a dream. President
It's not until you hear her voice that Smiley seems friendly. First you see the toughness in the hard posture and wonder if there are any other tattoos you can't see. There are, and living up to her name, the Holyoke outreach worker shows them with a smile and with the pride of a good museum tour guide who shares little-known details of famous masterpieces. Smiley
Nelson Rosario stood proud as he watched the Dominican Republic flag rise on the pole in front of Holyoke City Hall Feb. 14 in a ceremony to mark the country's founding. It was Valentine's Day, a day not celebrated in the West Indian nation. But for the few Dominicans who braved the cold that morning, the lovely, triumphant day was also about love. Love of the country they left behind. Rosario
He knows that scorpions can fly in the Iraqi desert. That spiders as big as his hand crawl on whatever and whoever they please. That killing is one point of war and that war is, in his own words, "a horrible act, an immoral act." War
Charley was positioned just below La Habana province of Cuba, spinning in the weird counter clockwise manner of all hurricanes. Then it charged northbound. Its winds blasted through Old Habana's narrow cobblestone streets at up to 140 mph. From space, Charley looked like a hurried erasure job to rid the island of its western end. It seemed like the U.S. media had the same idea. Cuba
When Ines Arrubla saunters on stage, every step smolders. Her long fingers snap inaudibly but with conviction. Her high-heeled red shoes click and stamp, releasing rolling, rhythmic surges of unabashed, breathless pleas, incited by deep pain, endless longing and steely pride.Flamenco
My grandmother was passionate about the movies. For 20 years, she took my two older sisters and me to more than 100 movies. We saw "Camelot" at least five times, "The Sound of Music" even more. "Bambi" once. Cine
