Ah, the good ol' NY Post...

Jennifer Wilbanks has a good sexcuse for her cross-country bolt from the altar - her fiance isn't giving her any. Friends of the runaway bride said the fun-loving 32-year-old, who once had a very active dating life, is upset her hubby-to-be has adopted a policy of abstaining before marriage.
Meanwhile, it was revealed yesterday the runaway bride claimed to have been raped during her "kidnapping."


South Side developer wants tax money
Terramark Communities, seeking to build a community next door to the proposed Texas A&M campus on the South Side, is asking both the Legislature and City Hall for hefty incentives...
State Sen. Frank Madla and Rep. Carlos Uresti, both San Antonio Democrats, filed separate Senate and House bills this week that would allow city officials to create a special taxing district — called the Espada Development District — for the project.
City Council is expected to vote next Thursday on a resolution supporting the special-district legislation.

Ten-Foot Poll on Tax Aid for Developers---RESULT
posted 915a Fri 5/6/ - 1130a Sat 5/7/2005
Should tax aid be given the developer of the (proposed) South Side "Espada" subdivision?
Yes because the project won't happen without it
Maybe, but I'd need to know a lot more about it
Our politicians need to close the tax-money cookie jar
Our elected leaders and the developers remind me of Michael Jackson and his boy houseguests-- all in bed together and up to NO GOOD AT ALL
Total votes 322

Some thoughts on the new release of Photoshop Upon installation, your copy of Photoshop phones home over the Internet, to prevent you from installing it on more than two computers.
(By far the coolest new feature in Photoshop CS2, though, is called Vanishing Point. It's also the most difficult to describe; in the attempts you find on the Web, you can practically see the knuckle marks on the writers' foreheads....)
