For such a long time, arsenic was the perfect poison. It is odorless, colorless and tasteless, so it's difficult to detect when slipped into a food or beverage. Its effects are gradual and cumulative - deflecting suspicion from the killer. The symptoms of arsenic poisoning mimic those of other diseases common in the 19th century, such as cholera and dysentery. Because the elemental form of arsenic occurs naturally in the environment, it is inexpensive and easily obtained. And until a clever British chemist named James Marsh devised a test in the 1830s, it was impossible to trace the poison in the human body.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Carefully examining a dozen glazed clay shards, Jennifer Borishansky, a third-year archaeology student, saw her duty as the sorting out of a 200-year-old Revolutionary War-era jigsaw puzzle. The pieces were washed of the mud and vegetation that had clung to them through two centuries underground. Some of the pieces were about the size of Borishansky's palm, others just crumbs of what she thought was a crock pot, used to store food or water. "It probably wasn't used for cooking, but it was used for food for sure," she said.

NEW YORK - After 40 years, Lunella Russo has seen it all on Mulberry Street: boisterous festivals, booming real estate values, blood-curdling mob violence, both real and cinematic. But as the longtime restaurant owner scans the crowd for prospective customers this year, she sounds a melancholy note: "Once this place was home to so many Italians, and you knew it was a real Italian neighborhood. But no more. Little Italy is not at all what it was." Nowadays, most of the people who live in the historic community just north of Canal Street are Asian and Dominican.

Yesterday the Tigers outlasted UMBC 2-0 in overtime, running their record to 9-4 overall, 5-0 in the conference.
