This seaside town, so near to Palestinian territory, has been targetted over and over. Dan Meridor//Israeli parliament's Defence and Foreign Affairs Committee There is only one address where the responsibility lies - Mr. Arafat and all the gang around him: the Palestinian authority.' Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority condemned the attack, but his officials blamed Israel for stoking Arab anger -- Israel was quick to retaliate, shelling Palestinian targets just hours later. The White House, still somewhat reluctant to get involved, is calling for the cycle to stop. President Bush "It is essential that the leaders in the Middle East speak out clearly against violence." As Palestinian and Israeli officials continue their ritual debate over, 'who started it. The end -- dead and innocent civilians -- is depressingly the same.KD, CBS News, London.))

Convicted drug lawyer Keith Neely may get out of prison on bond, while he argues his case for a new trial.
The government handed over 200 pages of documents to Neely today, long after they were due.
Judge Jackson Kiser is so angry with the government over the F-B-I's failure to turn over the records on time, he's threatening to release the former Christiansburg Attorney.

An attorney from the F-B-I's General Counsel's Office was called before the bench today in an attempt to hold the Bureau accountable for the delay in handing over information in Neely's case.
Shawn O'Neill said a lot of the information was at the F-B-I's Richmond field office.
Judge Kiser said that "explanation has a familiar ring to it," referring to F-B-I Director Louis Freeh's comments to Congress Wednesday.
Freeh said the Bureau had not handed over documents in Timothy McVeigh's case because the F-B-I field offices had not sent them in to headquarters.

The artist was able to showcase his work on the Great Wall partly because he linked his environmental theme to Beijing's Olympic bid.

(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Danville/Big South Tournament; :00]

We pick up the action in the second inning as Luke Johnson drives in the first run of the game with the sacrifice fly to right field. The Chanticleers take the one to nothing advantage. Later in the inning, Jon Humay walks on the play. For some reason the catcher throws down to second base, but no one is home for the errant relay and the runner Chris Carter will come all the way around and score to make it 2-to-nothing. In the third inning, Carter will again make his presence felt - as he smacks one into right field to chase home Justin Owens from third base. That turned out to be the winning run. But Coastal would add some insurance with Adam Keim putting the ball in left.
