At first glance you might think
they depict hazing, even torture.

The photos were taken last

However, those involved maintain
this incident is completely unrelated
to the pictures taken at a Halloween

The cadet who was tied up says it
was nothing more than good-natured
horse-play on his 19th birthday.
Nonetheless, someone COULD have gotten

HIT A RECORD HIGH THIS WEEK OF
TWO-DOLLARS 6-CENTS A GALLON . AND IT

Shares of Toys R' Us rallied 5 percent
on buyout news.. The no. 2 toy retailer
will stay in one piece, but it will
become a privately owned company after
a consortium of three firms bought the
struggling retailer for $6.6 billion



As record oil prices fed inflation
worries, mortgage rates rose for a
fifth straight week.



According to Freddie Mac's latest
survey the national average 30-year,
fixed-rate loan is at 5.95%... The
average for a 15-year loan is 5.47
percent. Fixed mortgage rates are
expected to edge up to about six and
a-quarter percent by the end of the
year.. And that could cool the red hot
housing market.

He fell an estimated 150 feet,

36 year old Paul Passalacqua

The bridge has been the scene of

ENG#=2 of V-M-I cadets has turned up on the


Internet.

VO-NAT VO-NAT



At first glance you might think
they depict hazing, even torture.

The photos were taken last
October.

However, those involved maintain
this incident is completely unrelated
to the pictures taken at a Halloween
party in barracks at Virginia Military
Institute three days later.

The cadet who was tied up says it
was nothing more than good-natured
horse-play on his 19th birthday.
Nonetheless, someone COULD have gotten
hurt, say V-M-I officials. "The
incident will be evaluated," they say.
