Today: Windy, chance of showers.  Highs in the high 50’s.
Did anybody e-mail workbox about the bells?

Tonight: Same old, same old.  Lows in the low 30’s.
Man, do we have to do everything around here?

Tomorrow: Partial clearing.  Highs in the low 40’s.
I’m beginning to think thirteen o’clock actually exists.


1) World news roundup


The White House officials announced Tuesday that they have decided to
revoke support for the independent counsel law. The law has been in effect
for 21 years since Watergate. However, White House officials say the law
has not fulfilled its function of keeping the law separate from party
politics. …Rwandan Hutu rebels killed eight tourists in Uganda, according
to six other tourists rescued by government officials yesterday. Among the
survivors was French diplomat Anne Peltier, who returned with a message
from the rebels saying they were reacting to US and British support of
Rwandan Tutsis. …Serb forces attacked villages in southern Kosovo
yesterday, focusing tanks and mortar fire on Albanian refugees. The attacks
came despite continuing warnings of NATO airstrikes. …Iraqi officials
said yesterday that US airstrikes have damaged pipelines essential to oil
exportation. Hussein al- Fattal, an administrator with Iraq’s Northern Oil
Company, said that communications facilities neccesary for oil pumping have
been damaged extensively. …Speeking in New Hampshire yesterday, Pat
Buchanan announced that he will once again seek the Republican candidacy
for President. Buchanan has run for President twice in the past.
