Six Weeks After Shooting, Nation Honors Other Victims

Six weeks after the shooting rampage in Tucson that seriously wounded her, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says she's getting "better."

Roll had approved the design of the building, which is scheduled for construction...

Tucson Tragedy Looms Over Obama Speech

WASHINGTON -- Lingering sadness over the shootings in Tucson inspired a new seating chart and better manners at President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday, but no palpable shift that might resolve some of the thorniest policy stalemates facing Congress. Under the gaze of those who lost or treated the Tucson victims, Republicans and Democrats sprinkled themselves throughout the House - a big change from the seating-by-party in a chamber that places great meaning on the proximity of members to the president and each other. But the choreography was the same: Democrats, wherever...

Dad: Arizona Girl's Corneas Saved Vision of 2 Kids

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Donated corneas from the young girl killed in the Arizona mass shooting have saved the eyesight of two children, the girl's father told The Associated Press on Monday.
