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 this column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

Six women say Schwarzenegger groped, humiliated them
Six women who came into contact with Arnold Schwarzenegger -- the front-runner in Tuesday's California recall race -- on movie sets, in studio offices and in other settings over the past three decades say he touched them in a sexual manner without their consent.


NY Times news analysis
THE LEAK:
All roads lead to Iraq
For months before the Iraq war, analysts at the agency and other intelligence officials quietly complained that they felt under pressure from senior administration officials, all the way up to Mr. Cheney, to tailor intelligence reports to the administration's agenda. In particular, the analysts said White House and Pentagon officials were pressing them to accept the premise of strong connections between Iraq and Al Qaeda.

Unable to find weapons of mass destruction, the Bush team has turned to weapons of personal destruction.

Washington Post
Outside Probe of Leaks Is Favored
A Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Wednesday, taken after the Justice Department announced that it had opened a criminal probe into the matter, pointed to several troubling signs for the White House.
"Confronted with little public support for the White House view that the investigation should be handled by the Justice Department, Bush aides began yesterday to adjust their response to the expanding probe. They reined in earlier, broad portrayals of innocence in favor of more technical arguments that it is possible the disclosure was made without knowledge that a covert operative was being exposed and therefore might not have been a crime."

The Internet
Perhaps you've noticed something a little different lately if you accidentally typed in an incorrect ".com" or ".net" Web address.
If so, you're witness not just to what some are calling the Great Internet Hijacking of 2003 but also to a raging battle over how cyberspace should be governed.

Brad:
A friend works at a one of the local Bank of America branches here in town. Since they are celebrating "National Hispanic Heritage" month, bank officials are giving a free telephone card good for 15 minutes of call time to Mexico and 10 minutes for US calls.
Bank tellers are instructed to give one telephone card to each "Mexican/Hispanic looking" customer who comes to their counter. The card is written entirely in Spanish and contains directions for use.
My friend said several of the profiled group were insulted about the free cards because (1) they did not speak or read or write Spanish. OR (2) They were born in the US and a citizens with no contact to Mexico. AND (3) Why were "Mexican" looking people singled out for the cards.
Regards, Bob B.

Reminds me of why it's good to be local, like Frost Bank, whose slogan is "We're from here." Frost wouldn't commit such a faux pas.
