Today: Mostly sunny, cloudy later.  Highs in the mid 60’s.
 Sheesh – another formal, and I only have one suit.

Tonight: Fair skies.  Low around 45.
 Say, that dress I wore for Sager was pretty nice…

Tomorrow: Mix of sun and clouds.  Highs in the low 60’s.
 I wonder if my girlfriend’ll let me borrow it again (sans pantyhose this
time – too weird).


1) World news roundup


The US House of Representatives voted 249-180 in favor of preventing
President Clinton from sending ground troops into Yugoslavia without
Congressional approval. …Yugoslav officials reported that a NATO bomb
destroyed a six-house block on Tuesday, killing 20.  Seven of the dead were
members of the same family. …Terrorists around the natoin breathed a
collective sigh of relief when it was announced that the Clinton
Administration will ease its sanctions policy to allow the sale of food and
medical supplies to nations accused of supporting terrorists. …The report
that the three students detained outside Columbine High School during last
week’s shootings might have been involved is being retracted and clarified
