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

5 Antiterror proposal uncertain in House
A key plank of President Bush's antiterrorism legislation that gives government agents subpoena power is facing scrutiny in the House.
6 Defense team hit for Iraq failures
The Pentagon's policy-making shop is getting internal criticism for failing to predict the ongoing guerrilla war in its planning for a post-Saddam Hussein Iraq, military officials say.

Special session off to rowdy start
6 They're back, but they're not happy about it
"... 25 minutes into the speeches by the returning senators, invisible Republicans cut off their microphone.
The move only emboldened the crowd – which chanted, "Turn it on! Turn it on!" – and the senators, who responded in even loftier terms.
