((Hostages inside the Afghan passenger airliner sit and wait as their nightmare drags into day three and British authorities continue negotiations with the hijackers.
Asst. Chief Constable John Broughton, Essex Police: The only requests that have been made are for food, fresh water, medical supplies and arrangements to improve sanitary conditions on board. But, obviously, the hijackers want more than improved living conditions inside the Boeing 727. There are reports that they are demanding freedom for a jailed warlord, held by the Afghanistan's ruling Taliban government. The Ariana Airlines jet was seized shortly after takeoff Sunday on a domestic flight from the Afghan capital, Kabul. The highjackers directed the plane to make a series of stops in Central Asia and Russia, where 22 people were leased. Then the plane flew on to Stansted Airport, outside London. There, eight more people, including two infants were let down a ramp at the rear of the plane. Boughton: As long as we can continue to talk and get information from the peole on board the plane then I think that's a positive step. Stansted Airport has been designated to deal with hijackings in the past. A plane can be diverted there to a runway far enough away from the terminals and other aircraft to ensure the safety of passengers on scheduled flights. But once on the ground, British policy does not allow hijacked planes to take off again. While hoping for a positive resolution, authorities insist that the jet will go no further.

But helping one group of unemployed workers more than another group, in another part of the state, is against the Governor's philosophy.

It was a point the President drove home with a brush PAINTING how his plan would pay off the national debt two years earlier than planned.

Its a balanced budget with a balanced approach to our national priorities.
GPX:
Its a blueprint for MASSIVE spending; more than 1.8 Trillion dollars the most ever requested.

$3 Billion dollars in education to modernize schools and hire more teachers
$168 Billion to create a prescription drug benefit for the elderly
$300 Billion in defense spending to increase pay and modernize weapons
$280 Million to finance the largest gun control initiative ever

All capped off with $350 billion dollar in tax cuts planned over the next ten years

CLINTON SOT 10:32:14

I hope it will be well received in Congress, and by the American people.
NARR:
It is the Presidents last budget, and critics charge his most political.

It emphasizes nearly all the themes favored by Democrats and mirrors many of the programs the Vice President is advancing in HIS bid for the Partys nomination.
