    FILE - In this undated file photo Gen. George Washington leads his troops across the Delaware River in this painting by Emmanuel G. Leutze, in December 1776, during the Revolutionary War. The Supreme Court appears to be sharply divided over a law that makes it a crime to lie about having been awarded top military honors. The justices engaged in spirited debate Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012, over the constitutionality of a 2006 law aimed at curbing false claims about military exploits. Some justices said they worried that upholding the Stolen Valor Act could lead to laws that might make it illegal to lie about an extramarital affair or a college degree. But others indicated that the law is narrowly drawn to try to prevent people from demeaning the system of military honors that was established by Gen. George Washington in 1782. (AP Photo)

A 2006 federal law, the Stolen Valor Act, aimed at curbing false claims of military valor, is at the heart of a Supreme Court review, and veterans groups have come to the aid of the Obama administration, which calls the law a narrowly crafted effort to protect the system of military awards that was established during the Revolutionary war by Gen. George Washington. The high court will hear the case Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012 which is Washington's 280th birthday. (AP Photo)

British scientist Stephen Hawking has decoded some of the most puzzling mysteries of the universe but he has left one mystery for others to explain: How he managed to survive so long with such a crippling disease. The physicist and cosmologist was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, or motor neuron disease, when he was a 21-year-old student at Cambridge University. Most people die within a few years of the disease being identified. On Sunday, Hawking will turn 70.(AP Photo/NASA, Paul. E. Alers, file)
