Former president out of hospital

Former President George H.W. Bush was released from a Houston hospital and went home Monday after spending nearly two months being treated for a bronchitis-related cough and other health issues, a family spokesman said. Bush, 88, was admitted to Methodist Hospital on Nov. 23. His stay included a week in intensive care last month. He issued a statement thanking his doctors, nurses and well-wishers. "Let me add just how touched we were by the many get-well messages we received from our friends and fellow Americans," he said.

Anchor expects to return soon

Robin Roberts expects to soon return to the Good Morning America anchor desk following a bone marrow transplant in September. Appearing from her home on Monday's show on ABC, she wore a broad smile as she announced that her most recent test showed no sign of MDS, a life-threatening blood and bone marrow disease. She said she hopes to be back "in weeks," perhaps as soon as February.

Oswald home demolished

A handful of history buffs and curious onlookers watched Monday as a bulldozer tore through the walls of a dilapidated apartment building in Dallas where Lee Harvey Oswald lived a few months before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Oswald lived at the building with his wife and young daughter from November 1962 to March 1963. A court ordered the rundown building demolished.
