A CARAVAN OF INSPECTORS DROVE UP TO THE COMPOUND IN THE CENTER OF BAGHDAD AND WERE REPORTEDLY ALLOWED IN IMMEDIATELY. ITS UNCLEAR WHETHER THE IRAQI LEADER WAS THERE.
THE SEARCH COMES A DAY AFTER PRESIDENT BUSH WARNED TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR SADDAM. AND BRITISH PRIME MINISTER TONY BLAIR IS ECHOING THAT MESSAGE SAYING WHILE HE PREFERS ANOTHER U.N RESOLUTION, but HE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO ATTACK WITHOUT ONE.

When people talk of the impatience of the United States or Britain or anyone else, this has been going on for over a decade. He has had the opportunity time and time again to comply with the United Nations resolution.

In the past few years, Lynchburg has become a battleground for opposing forces in a number of different social issues ranging from homosexuality to abortion.

But some feel the process is still unconstitutional.

After months of anticipation, author J-K Rowling has completed the fifth book about the young wizard.
Rowling's publishers say ``Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'' will hit bookstores on June 21st.
The book is 768 pages, making it more than one-third longer than the last book.
The book was expected to hit tores last year -- and when that didn't happen, there was speculation that Rowling was suffering from writer's block.
She denied it -- but the book has resulted in a far longer wait for fans than any of its predecessors.

The first contestant to be eliminated was a man who fell asleep only 20 minutes into the first movie.
When the contest ended yesterday, there were only 46 people left standing-- or rather sitting.
They reached the goal of 60 hours of continuous watching and will share just over 14- thousand dollars in prize money.
