C-B-S News is defending its report on Dr. Jack Kevorkian, saying it went to ``the core of an important national debate.''
Last night ``60 Minutes'' showed videotape of Kevorkian injecting a terminally ill man with a lethal dose of drugs.

At least six C-B-S affiliates refused to show the segment.

Jerusalem is better known for the variety of the faiths practiced here and for the ability of those faiths to get along. An outbreak of millenium fever may be about the last thing this city needs.

The mountains behind me covered with people from one end to the other, they need food, water and sanitation and they are expecting Jesus any minute now. That's giving some city officials apocalyptic visions of their own.

Brother David and his friends seem peaceful to a fault.
