WEATHER FORECAST

Today: Mostly sunny. Highs in the low 50s.
 How come every hall has one of those birthday boards up?

Tonight: Clear. Lows near 35.
 Does anybody ever actually look at it to find out if there’s someone they
can say happy birthday to?

Tomorrow: Sunny and milder. Highs in the low 60s.
 I think it’s just so people can see their name in print. People here like
that.

NEWS REPORT

1) World news roundup

The federal government sued seven giant Southern and Midwestern electric
companies Wednesday, accusing the utilities of violating anti-pollution
regulations and illegally contaminating the air. The government is focusing
on 32 coal-fired plants in 10 states, saying that if these plants cut down
on polluiton as required it would have the same effect as taking 26 million
cars off the road. …In response to Tuesday’s San Fransisco vote,
overwhelmingly in support of abolishing surcharges on all ATMs, state banks
filed suit in federal court to prevent the changes from being implemented.
…The news-photographer kidnapped by Marxist rebels in Colombia last week
was released unharmed Wednesday.
