PLANTING SEEDS OF DEMOCRACY
"Let Freedom Reign" said Bush (his version of Let Freedom Ring)

Iraqi cops threaten to kill every journalist in Najaf The Government of Prime Minister Iyad Allawi is acutely sensitive to the maelstrom that would erupt if the shrine were to be damaged, and the media crackdown may be an attempt to limit the negative publicity should it be hit during any military operation.

Still defiant, Sadr gains stature with Iraq masses Cleric's refusal to meet with a delegation indicates that recent fighting has strengthened the anti-American leader, some analysts say.

Florida vows to punish frauds, gougers As the death toll climbed to 20, reports surfaced of hotels jacking up their prices and bogus insurance adjusters demanding upfront payments before performing estimates.

 

Albany terror evidence may be flawed A key piece of evidence used to arrest and detain a mosque leader accused of supporting terrorism has come into question, with federal prosecutors acknowledging that a note found in a terrorist camp may have been mistranslated.

Bandido sought in slaying of ex-boxer Quiroga

EDITORIAL
Texas health care problems not all fixed, appear to be self-inflicted At this point, the deficit for Medicaid is $547 million; CHIP is $52 million short. Purposely low-balling costs for Medicaid and CHIP and then later orchestrating a financial bailout is akin to starting a fire, then taking credit for turning on the water hose.

EDITORIAL
Interrogating protesters has a chilling effect The FBI is going forward with the blessing of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel — the same outfit that recently approved the use of torture against terrorism suspects.

email Dog Fishing
Brad,
I'm a shark fisherman and we use dogs as bait like the photo shows however it is better to hook them through the roof of the mouth rather than the skin.
An alternative method is to hook them through the butt so they can swim away from the sharks in a natural manner.

Mileage numbers fail to add up Fuel-economy estimates posted on new cars and trucks are based on 30-year-old tests and driving conditions. Toyota, bolder than most, candidly says its vehicles get 10% to 15% less than the EPA estimates in real-world use.

Thief challenges dose of shame as punishment A mail thief who was sentenced to wear a large sign publicizing his crime will appeal in a case that could have broad implications for so-called shaming punishments.

Corpus Christi council bans Padre Island vinyl siding The council ended up voting to prohibit vinyl siding within part of the overlay district's boundaries, including the Lake Padre area and parts of the Park Road 22 corridor.

 

COUNTDOWN TO SEPTEMBER 1
If the intelligence information announced Sunday 8/1 about a Terrorist Threat against 5 financial institutions actually justified placing defenses in public places in New York, Washington DC and Newark, then those guards should still be in place 30 days later, due to the vagueness about when any such attacks might happen.
If the guards are gone by 9/1 (and there has been no new intel to cancel the "attack threat") then I will believe the public measures weren't considered really necessary in the first place.
