Here comes the news after this comment.
"The House of Representatives last week passed the
Born Alive Infants Protection Act, thanks to the efforts of, among others, two
courageous citizen politicians - Illinois state Sen. Pat O'Malley, and nurse
Jill Stanek. The measure codifies explicitly what, in less Orwellian times,
should have been obvious to everyone - that living human children who have
entirely completed the process of birth may not be denied the protection of the
While men of good conscience can have a debate about when
life begins. And, they can debate about when the God-given rights that are
recognized in our Constitution kick in. Further, they can try to find the fine
line between the rights of the mother and the rights of the baby. Also, they
can quibble about how the law should be crafted.
But, this seems pretty obvious to me. Once out, the child
is a citizen. Entitled to all the protections of the law. I'd be interested in
the foundation of disagreement.
Now, I don't know how it's written. And, I know all too
well the law of "unintended consequences", that there may be some off
the wall consequence I am unaware of. But, bottom line, this is an attempt to
muddle thru and codify something that we can all agree on.
It would seem that as men of faith, with the moral
lessons we learned at Manhattan, Jaspers should consider supporting this law.
Reflect well on our alma mater, this week, every week, in
any and every way possible, large or small. God bless.

DATELINE: MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 18, 2002
Perlegen Sciences, Inc., a privately
held genomics company, today announced a strategic appointment in the company's
effort to commercialize its core technology. Philip N. Sussman joins Perlegen
as Vice President of Business Development.
"A key part of Perlegen's
business strategy is to establish relationships with pharmaceutical and
biotechnology companies in order to associate genetic haplotypes with disease
and drug response," said Brad Margus, CEO of Perlegen. "Philip
Sussman's experience in structuring alliances with pharmaceutical and
biotechnology companies and his deep contacts within the business development
community will be of great value to Perlegen in this regard." Mr. Sussman
was previously a member of senior management at both public and private
biotechnology companies, including SIGA Technologies, Inc., Memory
Pharmaceuticals Corp., and Cadus Pharmaceutical Corporation. Prior to that he
was Director of Strategy and Business Development at Ciba-Geigy Corp.'s (now
Novartis') Pharmaceuticals Division.
Mr. Sussman is a member of the Review
Panel for the Innovative Technology Research Grant Program, Center for
Biotechnology, New York State Science and Technology Foundation. He is also
author of recent articles in Scrip Magazine, The Journal of BioLaw &
Business, and Journal of Commercial Biotechnology, where he is a member of the
Editorial Board. He holds an S.M. in Management with a concentration in finance

and business staff. The company uses high-density, whole-wafer microarray
technology in combination with innovative approaches to sample preparation to
look across the entire genome and cost effectively compare genetic variations
between individuals. As it identifies the common patterns or "haplotypes"
in which genetic variations occur, Perlegen develops tests to scan the DNA of
thousands of individuals in order to associate genetic haplotypes with health
and drug response. Perlegen also conducts downstream research aimed at
elucidating the biology underlying those associations in order to accelerate
the discovery of new drugs and the modification of existing treatments.

An engineer turned broadcaster, Leahy
confessed in the Jan. 23, 1978, issue of Broadcasting that he "applied
cold" for an NBC-TV page position in 1958 because it worked best with his
engineering course schedule. After graduating from New York's Manhattan College
in 1959, he took a sales position with an aviation company and served in the
U.S. Army Reserve. But a year later, confident that he could make a career in
television sales, Leahy was back in broadcasting as an account executive for WABC-TV
During the 1960s, Leahy was on the
sale staffs of WABC-TV, WGN-TV Chicago (New York office) and WCBS-TV, where he
was promoted to director of daytime sales in 1969. It was an appointment that
initiated a steady climb through the CBS-TV ranks to become president, CBS
Television Stations Division in 1977.
In the 1980s, he held several senior
posts at CBS, including executive vice president, CBS/Broadcast Group, with
responsibility for CBS Entertainment and the CBS Television Network division.
He became president of CBS Television Network in 1986 and president of the
network's marketing division in 1989 and retired from CBS in 1992.
Most recently, Leahy was president of

=== Fraschilla steps down as
Lobos' coach ===
(Sports Network) - Fran
Fraschilla resigned Sunday as head coach
of the University of New Mexico men's basketball team.
The 43-year-old Fraschilla took over
the Lobos' program prior to the 1999-2000 season. He
compiled a three-year record of
55-41, including a 21-21 mark in Mountain West Conference play.
Mexico finished 16-14 in
2001-02, finishing sixth in the
eight-team Mountain West
Conference at 6-8. The Lobos' season ended with a 96-62 loss at Minnesota last
Wednesday in the first round of the NIT.
"Fran and his
staff worked extremely hard for the University of New Mexico," said
Rudy Davalos, New Mexico athletic director. "We're both disappointed that
the program did not progress as fast as we would have liked.
"Lobo basketball fans have very high expectations of the program as do
we. A search will begin immediately to find our new head coach."
Fraschilla has a
career record of 175-100, including four years at Manhattan College
(1993-96) and two seasons at St. John's (1997-98).
"I think Rudy
and I are on the same page
regarding the direction of the UNM basketball program," said Fraschilla.
"I have enjoyed being a part of the Lobo basketball tradition."
Fraschilla succeeded David Bliss at New Mexico. Bliss led the Lobos to
seven NCAA Tournaments in nine
seasons, but could not take them past the second round. Fraschilla,
who offered visions of
"Sweet Sixteens and Final
Fours" when he was hired by
the school, failed to get New
Mexico into the NCAA Tournament
during his three seasons there.
Earlier this year, starting point guard Marlon Parmer
became the ninth player to quit the Lobos since Fraschilla became head coach.
The team will lose three seniors from
the 2001-02 squad: guards Eric Chatfield
and Tim Lightfoot, and reserve forward Pat Kelly.

Dear Jasper John,
I came upon this article right after
reading your claim that public officials are entirely responsible for the water
shortage in New Jersey.
I had been thinking of rebutting your
claim by reminding you of the debacle that resulted at Woodstock 1999 in Rome
NY when private enterprise forced the price of a bottle of water to $5.00 per
20 ounces. Many people became overcome with
heat exhaustion and at least one died.
During the ensuing riot and fire, the private security personnel stood
by - public police officers were needed to restore order.
But this article on ENRON says it
It was copied from bartcop.com.

Dead in the Water:
Enron's grab for Florida's water was
factor in collapse
While Jeb Bush was running for
Florida's governor in the summer of 1998,
Enron was diversifying into a new field privatization of water supplies.
Just like in California, the Bush
Family Evil Empire planned on gouging Floridians.
If you like $1000 heating bills every
month, wait till you need fresh water!
If you don't like the B.F.E.E. price
of fresh water, you can just do without.
The Bush Family Evil Empire won't rest
until they monopolize everything.
"restore democracy now"
[JR: Interesting, but that is the
problem – Government! No one can create a monopoly with out the government
intervention in peaceful exchange between two free parties. The “Woodstock”
people could have left. Enron stockholder could have sold. The free market
always adjusts. If water was $1,000 per gallon, there would be a HUGE incentive
to build desalination plants like in Israel. Right next to the nuclear reactor
for virtually free power. We, using the government as a big club, cut ourselves
off from good things. Only the government can create a monopoly which by
definition means high prices, poor service, shortages, and “crisis’s”. That’s
how the government expands. By our stupidity! Why do you never have a problem
buying a hamburger? The invisible hand of the free market capitalizing on greed
makes it happen “organically, quickly, and cheaply!]

did not give us a “democracy” which they knew led to the tyranny of the
majority and the special interests. They gave us a “republic”, or

I'm writing in response to Robert
Helm's note last week, since I suspect his reference to "Newshound"
was directed towards me.
I never give out my own views about
the goings-on in N. Ireland, which is one of the main reasons the Newshound
survives. If one side or the other thought they knew which side I was on, the
Newshound would quickly become 'suspect' and would wither and die. Currently,
politicians, journalists, members of government and thousands of other
interested people use the site to keep abreast of the media coverage of what is
happening in N. Ireland. As far as the site's users are concerned, my views are
non-existent or irrelevant. The Newshound is simply a collection of links to
news relevant to the topic.
However, I can assure Mr. Helm that
changes are taking place in N. Ireland, although the pace and direction of
those changes do not satisfy everyone. The police force, the Royal Ulster
Constabulary (RUC), is undergoing structural change to try to encourage more
Catholics to join the force. The Ulster Defense Association (I believe this is
what he was referring to when he mentioned the Ulster Defense League) is a
proscribed organization and many members have been tried and convicted of
involvement in terrorist and sectarian crimes. The (Protestant) Orange Order
has also been forced to deal with the changed reality, no longer able to march
as it pleases through Catholic neighborhoods, etc. The B-specials were wound up
more than 25 years ago.
There is now a power-sharing
government in N. Ireland consisting of members of the 4 largest political
parties, which are evenly split between "Catholic" and
"Protestant" parties (the divide is actually more about nationalism
I believe the President indicated
that he was going to root out all terrorists "of global reach", which
might not include the IRA, UDA, etc. Although the IRA has imported arms from
other groups and countries, including Libya in the past, it has been on a
cease-fire since 1997, which would probably exempt it from the "War on
Terror". However, they have recently been accused of training members of
the leftist guerillas in Columbia (FARC), which obviously will not win them too
many friends in the administration.

was not technically correct, there are shortages due to natural disasters,
political events, and other such. Market disruptions are relatively rare from
such causes. Far more are caused, or made far worse, by government. In my
lifetime, I can only remember the ones that really hurt were caused by the
government. Other than the occasional snow storm causing runs at the grocery
store, the really hurting ones were the 21% inflation rate courtesy of
President Carter and Chairman Volker, the Nixon gas lines, and the various
crashes due to Chairman Greenspan. In case after case, one only has to barely look
into it a little before they find the government's hand. The dead old white men
gave us a genie (i.e., a system) that we let we let out of the bottle when we
slipped up. Fighting the Civil War, passing the income tax, and creating the
Federal Reserve are really in my mind the three watershed events that have led
us down the road to ruin. IMHO
And that’s the last word.
