HIGH-SPEED CHASE AND RUNNING SHOOTOUT ENDS IN CAPTURE
Robbers spattered gunfire into law enforcement vehicles and the cars
of innocent bystanders (by-drivers, I guess they would be) in a
high speed chase from San Antonio down I-35 to Lytle, where they
Witnesses called KTSA reporting 60 or 70 police,
sheriff and DPS cars taking part in the chase. One witness said
her car was passed near South Park Mall by the robbers, one of
whom was firing out the rear window and hitting law vehicles and
shattering windows of civilian cars and one truck.

Judge: Bush too changable with detainee policy
A government request to transfer terrorism suspect Jose Padilla [Ed. note: Padilla himself pronounces the L's, as in "vanilla" and not "DEE'uh"] from military to civilian custody was rejected by an appeals court that said the administration's shifting tactics in the case threatens its credibility with the courts.
Washington Post version
Court rejects Padilla's transfer
Bush administration strongly rebuked in handling of the high-profile terrorism case.
Judges to review secret-spying program
Several members of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said in interviews that they want to know why the administration believed that secretly listening in on telephone calls and reading e-mails of U.S. citizens without court authorization was legal.
CIA surveillance of Americans awkward
As a PowerPoint presentation posted on the agency's Web site puts it, for an American to be a target, "Court Order Required in the United States."
- Did agency officials volunteer to perform the eavesdropping without warrants, or did the White House order it over agency objections?
- Why was it not possible to use warrants, as the law appears to require, from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which granted 1,754 such warrants last year and did not deny a single application?
- Or, if the court was considered too slow or cumbersome, why did the agency not ask Congress to adjust the law and legalize what it wanted to do?
Congress bans harsh treatment of suspects
President Bush is expected to sign a voluminous defense bill that requires the humane treatment of foreign terrorism suspects even though the measure rebukes some of his wartime policies.
New life for Patriot Act is no victory for Bush
The Senate's six-month extension effectively kills a compromise that would have made key provisions of the anti-terror law permanent.

Growing population shifts political power
Southern and Western states are growing so much faster than the rest of the country that several are expected to grab House seats from the Northeast and Midwest when Congress is reapportioned in 2010. "But if you ever banned air conditioning," Bennett added, "I think people would flock back."
