A six- or seven-block area along Penn Avenue features a large fresh fish market that also sells sushi and sandwiches, Italian bakeries, Vietnamese noodle shops, and stores specializing in Italian, Mexican, Oriental, Polish, Greek, and Middle Eastern food. There are also specialty coffee and tea shops, vegetarian restaurants and neighborhood bars, all fun to browse. (AP Photo/Gene J.

Rick Perry signed sweeping abortion restrictions that forced the closure of several clinics by requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas' tough new abortion restrictions that shuttered many of the abortions clinics in the state. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. In its opinion, the appeals court said the law "on its face does not impose an undue burden on the life and health of a woman."
