Who can regulate tobacco use by minors-- Congress or the F-D-A?
It's a question the U-S Supreme Court will decide.
Government lawyers say the F-D-A's decision in 1996 to start regulating tobacco as a drug was justified -- because of new evidence that the industry wanted its products to feed the nicotine habits of consumers.
But a federal appeals court ruled that Congress, and not the F-D-A, has the authority to decide how to regulate cigarettes and chewing tobacco.

Hours after the shooting began there was a flurry of activity on the web. As people rushed to register website names containing the word "Trenchcoat".
Trenchcoatmafia-dot-org and dot-net were registered with the intent of keeping them OFF-line. Trenchcoat mafia-dot-com began as a memorial site and is now shut down.
Trenchcoat-dot-net was also registered by someone who did NOT want it used for anything tasteless... like this... Trenchcoat-dot-org is another story... A dark and disturbing parody site, using actual images from the shooting and the suspects yearbook... why? for a buck apparently... owners of the site put the dot-org-address up for sale on E-bay... so anyone who didn't like it could buy it and take it down... e-bay cancelled the auction, the site is still up.
Over at Trenchcoat dot com, once an X-rated site unrelated to the tragedy, the owner has removed the adult content, and turned it into an anti-violence resource page.

On another helpful note, Columbine-High, and ColumbineHighSchool-dot-com are both set up as memorial sites for the victim, and include forums allowing people to post messages of support and sympathy for their families.

As for the suspects' AOL webpages... they've been removed by AOL, but nothing dissappears easily on the web... several mirror sites are springing up, claiming to preserve some of the suspects original writings and images.
The links are on the WebWatch page, at WDBJ-7-dot-com.))

Dale Jarret was in that group and he finally got by Waltrip to lead the race for two laps.
Terry Labonte was working his way toward the front but mechanical problems sent him to the pits.
The third caution of the day came out on lap 168 when Bobby Hamilton and Robert Pressley spin out on the high side of the track putting the cars in a pack again.
