A 'Petri Dish' in the Pacific; Conservative Network Aligned With DeLay Makes Marianas a Profitable Cause

BY Juliet Eilperin

Last year, two close associates of one of the most powerful members of the U.S. House spent part of their New Year's holiday 8,000 miles from Washington in the Northern Marianas. Although the islands are known for their balmy weather, golf courses and great snorkeling, the trip could hardly be described as a junket--the advisers to House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) were there on a political mission.

Contested Ohio Supreme Court Race Ensues

The New York Times published an article on June 7th entitled, “A Spirited Campaign for Ohio Court Puts Judges on New Terrain,” highlighting the Ohio Supreme Court race. The Ohio Supreme Court currently consists of seven members with a four to three ideological split led by a liberal activist majority. This majority has consistently struck down legal reform bills passed by the legislature. Most recently, in a move that “defied the will of the people,” the Ohio Supreme Court struck down legislation designed to give back Ohio’s legal system to decent, honest, and hard working citizens. Justice Resnick, in writing the court’s majority opinion, wrote that to do otherwise would make the court “a co-conspirator in the abdication of fundamental rights and liberties.”

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Eating into Civil Liberties…Carnivore is a Threat to Digital Commerce

Yesterday, the House of Representatives held a hearing on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) controversial e-mail surveillance system. The software program is named “Carnivore” because it purportedly allows the Bureau to get to the “meat” quickly. The Carnivore system is terrifying because the “meat” can include all of the e-mail on a network, including a list of what mail is sent and the actual content of the communication.

Shaheen hit at school tax panel hearing

BY JERRY MILLER

NEWINGTON -- Gov. Jeanne Shaheen bore much of the criticism last night during a public forum conducted by the New Hampshire Commission on Education Funding. The group was established by Shaheen through executive order to investigate alternative taxes for funding schools. The session, held at the Redhook Ale Brewery at the Pease International Tradeport, was the sixth regional public forum held by the panel and the only one scheduled for the Seacoast.

Campaign Reform Law: A Flawed Fix

BY Deirdre Davidson

confounded by it, regulators are constantly under fire for failing to implement it, and Congress usually does everything it can to avoid it. The new "527" legislation is the perfect example why. The law, which Congress passed last month in hopes of eliminating a popular campaign finance loophole, may prove both more broad and less powerful than originally imagined. With a scant week left before the law is fully implemented, election lawyers are already grousing about its breadth and stretching out loopholes to avoid its provisions.

Tips for Writing Letters to the Editor

Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper alerts the general public to what's happening in Washington, D.C., and throughout your state. Although publication policies vary, the following advice applies to most newspapers: Keep your letter brief. Many newspapers will not consider letters longer than 200-300 words (1 to 1-1/2yped pages, double spaced). Type your letter if you can; many editors won't read letters that are not typed.
