Inducted 2002

Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in the left column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

MONDAY EDITION
New stuff is posted between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION visible from San Antonio this evening 9:05 to 9:10, from NW sky, across SW sky, then disappearing on SE horizon. Looks like bright moving star (if object is surrounded by fire with blue sparks shooting out behind it, that's probably something else)

Brad,
I've been traveling and haven't heard your show for a while, so the topic of voting machines locally may be old-news. However, if it is still current, you may want to check out some tech reports at Network World magazine, better known as "www.nwfusion.com". Just search on "voting machine" and you'll get some current/very recent article hits, mostly relative to Maryland. Best regards,
Dave
