Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
DETROIT (AP) — A businessman who claims he was extorted to protect his contracts at a Detroit convention center says he told FBI agents before trial that he may have dementia.
The disclosure by Karl Kado (KAY’-dough) occurred Tuesday during cross-examination by the attorney for former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
Kado testified Monday that he gave thousands of dollars to Kilpatrick, starting in 2002, and $200,000 to $300,000 to Kilpatrick’s father, Bernard. He says he paid cash to protect his contracts at Cobo Center.
The 72-year-old Kado says his memory is “much worse” than it was 11 years ago, but he was able to recall events on the witness stand.
The Kilpatricks and a third man are accused of extortion, bribery and other crimes.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.

NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
