Internet filtering leaky
Wired | Submitted by: Soylent
"The difficulty in determining what are legitimate Internet news sites and which online publishers do not have sufficiently high journalistic standards to qualify will doom ICRA, civil libertarians predict. After all, even rotten.com now features a news section, though the headlines do tend to run along the lines of "Postal worker jailed for flinging feces."

Is the anthrax domestic?
Washington Post | Submitted by: Soylent
Three nations -- the United States, Soviet Union, and Iraq -- have the technology to create airborne anthrax.

Student loans to dead people are dismissed, and the bank intends to return the ashes (which thankfully contain no anthrax, laboratory tests now show.)

Aryan Nations official applauds WTC attacks
Philadelpha Daily News | Submitted by: pete
Jew York City? As second-in-command of the Aryan Nations movement, August Kreis "is a man of contradictions. Despite his ominous costume, he looks like a cop who's eaten too many doughnuts." He holds viewpoints that few Americans would share, Jews are "Satan's Spawn" and blacks "Mud People". And Kreis applauds the collapse of the WTC, and although the reasoning isn't precisely clear it seems to be because NYC has a lot of Jews living in it.
