"The detainee was Donald Vance, a 29-year-old Navy
veteran from Chicago who went to Iraq as a security
contractor. He wound up as a whistle-blower, passing
information to the F.B.I. about suspicious activities
at the Iraqi security firm where he worked, including
what he said was possible illegal weapons trading"
"Even Saddam Hussein had more legal counsel than I
ever had," said Mr. Vance, who said he planned to sue
the former defense secretary, Donald H. Rumsfeld, on
grounds that his constitutional rights had been
violated. "While we were detained, we wrote a letter
to the camp commandant stating that the same
democratic ideals we are trying to instill in the
fledgling democratic country of Iraq, from simple due
process to the Magna Carta, we are absolutely,
positively refusing to follow ourselves."

Hello! I am the Director of Public Relations at the
Church of Scientology of New York.
Since the 2004 grand opening of our newly renovated
building, we have had tremendous amounts of students
entering our building searching for the answer to the
question "What is Scientology?" Our team in the
Introductory Services department is responsible for
acquainting people with basic information on
Scientology and Dianetics. With a variety of simple
brochures, pamphlets, short videos, and information
panels, this team is easily able to explain the
different aspects of Scientology. However, there are
still many more students throughout New York, New
Jersey, etc. that have this question and perhaps, have
been unable to get it answered.
For this reason, I would like to invite you, your
students, and co-workers for a tour of the Church of
Scientology of New York . I can show you the
following: facilities that deliver different types of
life improvement services, information panels that
display a thorough and clear explanation of what this
religion is, and our most recent campaigns that help
solve social and cultural problems. In addition, I
would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
I am available to tour Monday through Friday, from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. I would be pleased to have
small or large crowds so feel free to pass this
invitation on to anyone who is interested in finding
more about Scientology.
Please call me at (xxxxxxx), extension xxx or e-mail
me at email@example.com so that we can schedule an
appointment at your convenience.
I look forward to hearing from you and can promise you
in advance - you will be amazed as to how much we
really do here at the Church!

"The Florida Elections Canvassing Commission, which is
made up of Gov. Jeb Bush and two other elected
Republican officials, said that the results of the
recount showed Buchanan had beaten Democrat Christine
Jennings by 369 votes in a race where nearly 240,000
votes were cast. The commission awarded the victory to
Buchanan despite the fact that the mystery of more
than 18,000 missing votes has not been resolved. "

worthwhile and unpretentious going on over at the
Access Theatre. I'll be there Friday. Catch it if
you can. I am told there are lots of penises in the
show and blasphemy and a little bit of violence.
Blue Coyote Theater Group presents:
The Standards of Decency Project
Blue Coyote Theater Group has challenged nine fearless
emerging playwrights to create ten-minute plays that
feature at least one of the following: 1) nudity, 2)
violence, or 3) blasphemy, in a manner that is fully
warranted and justified (that is, that avoids mere
gratuitousness or sensationalism), while also intended
to offend conventional standards of decency. Vaguely
inspired by the FCC regulatory crackdown following
Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at the
SuperBowl XXXVIII halftime show, Blue Coyote seeks to
spark a discussion about the uses and abuses of
transgressive performance onstage. All nine plays
will be performed complete and uncut for one week
only at the Access Theater.
Featuring new works by David Johnston, Mathew Freeman
, David Foley, Brian Dykstra, Boo Killebrew, Laura
Henry, Kristen Palmer, John Yearley, and Stan

"Some reports are issued and just gather dust. And
truth of the matter is, a lot of reports in Washington
are never read by anybody. To show you how important
this one is, I read it," - George W. Bush today.
Does he have to make Jon Stewart's job that easy?

am 20 pages into another play. I have also been
writing a novel. I have nine thousand something
words. Which is not tons but it's something. I
word-counted some of my plays and some of the
hour-long ones are about that long. which means i
wrote about as much as an hour long play this month.
the bad news is that it will take me at least 5 or 6
more months to finish the book at this pace, i think.
i have no idea how long it will be actually. but that
means i will have to work this hard or harder and that
means (if word count means anything) that it will be
like writing 2 or 3 or 4 full length plays. except
that it's not like that. it's not like that at all.
