Brad,
I enjoy listening to your radio program. Thanks for your discovery of the "Activation Software" in the TurboTax software. Would it be possible for you to find out if TurboTax has the "Activation Software" for tax year 2003? Thanks for your help,
John O.

I didn't discover it, I just reported it. The answer you want ("No!") is in PC magazine’s new review of TurboTax Premier 2003.

If you have an opinion, contact your city councilperson. Unlike the Texas Transportation Committee, the council does publish its agenda in advance, so people will know what will be considered. The law requires it. However, the TTC decides issues such as toll roads without letting the public know what it plans to vote on. Next time you see our newly-appointed local member of the TTC, Hope Andrete, ask her why TTC operates behind so despicable a veil of secrecy.

Beef ban causing truck drivers abandon cargo at Mexico border The truckers marooned their loads after learning they would not be allowed to reach their final destinations. Inez Torres Hurtado, an independent Mexican truck driver, said the loss of the beef cargo he was carrying on Saturday will force him to sell his prized semi-truck, on which he was three payments past due.
"I can't believe that I took this job at the last minute only to lose everything," Mr. Torres Hurtado said after leaving the trailer he was hauling in the same dirt lot as the other drivers.



Official: Army seeks to apply short-term stop loss to ALL active-duty in Iraq

Brad,
Recently got Roadrunner wireless, great when you have two teenage girls online all the time. We have three computers: one laptop and two desktops. No waiting to get online any more. Just get the laptop, prop up in my favorite chair, and go to work...

COMMENTARY
Politics in the lab hits US scientific integrity "..acute concern in the American scientific community that the administration's drive to stamp its conservative values on science isn't just affecting policy decisions, but undermining the integrity of the US research infrastructure itself.."
