Today's Globe: radiologist killed, 'breakfast bomb,' gay brothers study
While carrying out his medical duties yesterday afternoon, the longtime Brockton Hospital physician and well-respected radiation oncologist Dr. Mark A. Vasa was killed when a car crashed through the glass doors of one of the hospital's main entrances, struck four people, and smashed into a reception desk.
The people who brought you the Monster Thickburger and the 1,100-calorie salad are at it again - this time for breakfast. Hardee's yesterday rolled out its new Country Breakfast Burrito - a two-egg omelet filled with bacon, sausage, diced ham, cheddar cheese, hash browns and sausage gravy, all wrapped inside a flour tortilla. The burrito contains 920 calories and 60 grams of fat, which one critic called a "country breakfast bomb."
One thousand pairs of gay brothers are taking part in the largest study to date seeking genes that may influence whether people are gay.
