Now a fictionalized account of the marriages, inspired by his letters, examines what it might have been like to be the wives.

Here is some truly shocking news: Scientists have discovered the secrets behind electric fish, using genetic studies that revealed how these exotic creatures developed an organ that can unleash a wicked jolt.

It's tough being Hillary Clinton. Her book's a flop, she's angered ordinary Americans with crass remarks about money and now her husband's sex life is a New York musical.
