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

Dame Edna regarding Arnold Schwarzenegger: "One woman's grope is another woman's caress."

HOLLYWOOD PARK STARVING DEER
HP city council enacted a ban on feeding the town's deer. Since then, people claim that some of the deer are starving. Looks like it to me. My own neighborhood is well populated with deer and none of 'em look like this pathetic fawn.
Whoever brought the stack of photos to KTSA and left them for me, thank you very much. If you'll call - or email - an address, I'll mail them back to you.

Drop in confidence on Bush skill in handling crises
Thirteen months before the 2004 election, a solid majority of Americans say the country is seriously on the wrong track.
The poll found that just 45 percent of Americans now have confidence in Mr. Bush's ability to deal wisely with an international crisis, down sharply from 66 percent in April, and half now say they are uneasy about his approach. Nearly 9 in 10 Americans say the war in Iraq is still going on, and 6 in 10 say the United States should not spend as much on the effort as Mr. Bush has sought.
