Debate II: Harder Lines on Soft Money

BY Erik Kriss

Rep. Rick Lazio unveiled pledges Wednesday from 13 outside groups to refrain from raising and spending controversial "soft money" to aid his U.S. Senate campaign if first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton does the same. Clinton, appearing about an hour after Lazio at an Associated Press conference in Albany, pledged to match Lazio's move "if what he's offered is compatible with what I've been asking for months."

Ad Feud Dominates N.C. Gubernatorial Campaign

BY James Herriott

In an election season filled with allegations of unethical behavior, Republicans seemed to have locked on a single topic in the North Carolina gubernatorial race. The latest controversy centers around a series of state-funded public service announcements created by Attorney General Mike Easley -- the Democratic nominee for governor. Former Charlotte Mayor and Republican gubernatorial nominee Richard Vinroot alleges that the ads, aimed at increasing awareness of predatory lending practices, promoted Easley's gubernatorial bid.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Happy Birthday! U.S. Pat. #4,405,829 Turns 17 Today

For most Americans, today is just another Wednesday, but for privacy advocates it is a day to celebrate. Today marks 17 years since U.S. Patent #4,405,829, “Cryptographic Communications System And Method,” was granted, and with this coming of age, enters into the public domain. Although RSA Security, the company formed by the patent’s inventors jumped the gun and released the algorithm into the public domain earlier this month, the nationwide parties to celebrate the patent’s expiration will go on as planned.

Gore's Empty Vision on the Environment

On September 6, Vice President Al Gore released “Prosperity for America’s Families,” a document intended to provide details about his plans for the United States. A main chapter, as one might expect from an avowed environmentalist, is energy policy and the environment. While providing few real specifics, Gore offers up a laundry list of $150 billion in new spending, much of it on policies that are proven losers.

Frivolous Criminal Lawsuits Reflect Need for Tort Reform

Trial lawyers are robbing decent honest Texans of their money, trust, freedom and peace of mind. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice is suffering from a shortage of guards and corrections officers, which has in turn led to dangerous working conditions. Texas, with an estimated 28,000 guards, is about 1,700 short of what the Legislature has approved. This shortage stems from the fact that Texas Department of Criminal Justice employees are among the lowest paid in the country. Instead of paying these prison guards more, the state is forced to spend money on defending frivolous lawsuits filed by prisoners.
