Senate panel kills Texas Border Fence scheme
OKs 200 - NOT 700 - miles of new barricades
The Senate Judiciary Committee agreed yesterday to erect new fencing along parts of the Arizona-Mexico border but stopped far short of a House proposal to build more fences over a wider area.
The Kyl proposal calls for 200 miles of fencing and vehicle barriers along Arizona's border with Mexico, but no new fences in California, New Mexico and Texas.

REFUSES TO REMOVE SIGN
When told her refusal to take down the 2-foot sign would result in a fine of $100 a day, Stacie Kelley, a normally quiet Army wife not used to the national and even international spotlight, had a simple message for the homeowners association directors.
"Bring it on," she said.
<<< Stacey Kelley, the wife of an Army private now serving in Iraq, has a 'Support Our Troops' sign in her Westchase, Florida yard. Homeowners' association rules prohibit most signs.

Stacey, when it was time to have you on the air, my screener told me that some man answered your phone and said you couldn't talk to us in Texas because you were going to be on TV instead. Thank you for emailing me. We will call you back on Monday to try to arrange a time that will work for you.
Thanks for being a military family!

It's time we started electing TV news anchors
William Powers lists five reasons why anchor elections make sense. Here's one: "Elections will solve one of the great mysteries of civilization: What makes an anchor popular? [Bob] Schieffer's success has produced confusion about what qualities we-the-people want in our anchors. Do we prefer the gray paterfamilias figure that he epitomizes, or the younger 'glam' anchor typified by Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric? It's a momentous question that can be answered only by a national vote."
