Governor Tim Kaine today
ceremonially signed nearly 30- bills
that were submitted in response to the
tragedy.


They include changes to
requirements for committing someone
deemed a danger to himself or others,
and clarification of when health
information can be shared.


Andrew Goddard's son Colin
survived the shootings.


He says it's a shame it took a
tragedy to shine light on a system
that's been struggling for years.

Militia members once again opened fire
on Iraqi Security Forces in Sadr City.


At least sixteen people were killed in
battles between Iraqi troops and


gunmen loyal to Shi'ite cleric Muqtada
al-Sadr..



And, as the violence flared, on the
fifth anniversary of the fall of


Baghdad... the top U-S general in Iraq


called on lawmakers once again... to


give the war more time.



(09.17.46 / SOT: GEN. DAVID PETRAEUS /


US ARMY) - "AS EVENTS IN THE LAST TWO


WEEKS HAVE REMINDED US, PROGRESS MADE
SINCE LAST SPRING IS FRAGILE -- AND


REVERSIBLE."



Petraeus wants President Bush to halt
troop withdrawals this summer - and
give


military commanders a chance to
re-assess conditions on the ground.
That


plan has some lawmakers concerned.



(SOT - LAWMAKER TBD)



(STANDUP BRIDGE: Susan Roberts / CBS
NEWS / CAPITOL HILL) - "Democrats are


working on a bill that would force the
Iraqi government to start spending its


own oil revenues to pay for
reconstruction projects. Lawmakers
hope, that


would push Iraqi lawmakers closer to
making political gains."



(SOT: REP. IKE SKELTON / D - MISSOURI)


- "IN MY VIEW, THAT SENSE OF URGENCY


WILL COME ONLY WHEN WE TAKE THE
TRAINING WHEELS OFF..."



But war critics know -- they don't have
the political power to force an end to


operations in Iraq. Anti-war
legislation often dies in the Senate --
because


Democrats don't have the 60-votes
needed to pass it.

several miscarriages. Then came 'the
moment.'



SOT LUCY REYNOLDS/EX-SMOKER


ME: WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT WERE YOU
THINKING THEN? LUCY: I'M GOING TO DIE.


THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.



NATS - BLOWING INTO SPIROMETER



Here's what scared Lucy stiff: a
machine that told her how 'old' her
lungs


were by measuring their capacity... in
her late 30's -- her lungs were almost


70.



British researchers found that even
heavy smokers were TWICE as likely to
quit


when they learned the results of the
spirometer.



SOT DR. GARY PARKES/RESEARCHER


THE THING THAT MAKES IT WORK IS THAT WE
ARE GIVING INFORMATION IN A WAY THAT


CAN BE UNDERSTOOD - NOT ONLY VERBALLY,
BUT GRAPHICALLY.



ON CAMERA BRIDGE: (CHARLIE
D'AGATA/LONDON)


AND EVEN SMOKERS WHO GOT A SURPRISINGLY
GOOD LUNG SCORE STILL QUIT --


THINKING, WOW - I JUST DODGED A BULLET.



SOT DR. PARKES


IT'S NOT ME BATTERING THEM AS A HEALTH
PROFESSIONAL OR THE GOVERNMENT


BATTERING THEM WITH TAXES - IT'S THEIR
DECISION - IT PUTS THE BALL FIRMLY IN


THEIR COURT.



In short, it's personal, and seeing
damage done in black and white can be a


big motivator.



SOT LUCY REYNOLDS


YOU'VE GOT TO FOCUS AND SAY, RIGHT, WHY
AM I DOING THIS. I DON'T WANT TO DIE,


I WANT TO BE A FIT AND HEALTHY PERSON.



She's been smoke-free for three years


now. And nobody could be happier for


THAT then Lucy's baby boy.

a year early from Virginia Tech.


But Macho changed his mind, and
is back on campus in Blacksburg going
through Spring Drills with the Hokies.


And He is doing more than his
usual Cornerback Duties.


Macho worked out at Wide Receiver
for the first half of Tech's Spring
Practice, and will now move back to "D"
for the 2nd half.

Don't think Frank Beamer has any
plans to make Macho a kicker, but


putting Number 1 on the offensive Side
of the ball is a return to where Harris
made his name in High School at
Highland Springs.


Macho was the top rated recruit
in Virginia his senior year, thanks to
his exploits as a running back.

Still, the number didn't come

At nearly 50 pounds "Flocke"
