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

Congratulations to my colleagues Ricci Ware and Carl Wiglesworth, who are among 37 broadcasters just cited by the Texas Radio Hall of Fame "for their significant, notable and substantial contributions to Texas radio." The TRHOF website explains that these Hall of Honor awardees "remain eligible to be future candidates for induction into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame."

New Texas Radio Hall of Fame members to be inducted next month include several people with whom I have worked across the years— jocks The Weird Beard (Russ Knight), Joe Ford, Barry Kaye, Hudson and Harrigan; Newsmen Jim Carola and Dan Lovett; General Managers Al Lurie, John Barger and Bill Weaver; Programmers Chuck Dunaway and Don Keyes.

Lenders are moving fast to offer new line of credit
Texas law allows homeowners to take out only one home equity loan at a time. Before Saturday's vote, that meant that borrowers often had to take out a larger loan than they needed, because they couldn't tap that source of equity again without refinancing the loan. The line of credit is intended to let them borrow multiple times, up to 50 percent of their home's value, as they need the money

Patriot Act not just for terrorists anymore

"In the two years since law enforcement agencies gained fresh powers to help them track down and punish terrorists, police and prosecutors have increasingly turned the force of the new laws not on al-Qaida cells, but on people charged with common crimes. ... Civil liberties and legal defense groups are bothered by the string of cases, and say the government soon will be routinely using harsh anti-terrorism laws against run-of-the-mill lawbreakers. 'Within six months of passing the Patriot Act, the Justice Department was conducting seminars on how to stretch the new wiretapping provisions to extend them beyond terror cases,' said Dan Dodson, a spokesman for the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys. 'They say they want the Patriot Act to fight terrorism, then, within six months, they are teaching their people how to use it on ordinary citizens.'"
