    An examination of both the board of NPR's non-profit foundation and its national board of directors recently found that their members are overwhelmingly - almost uniformly - adherents to various left-wing ideologies. National Review's Matthew Shaffer conducted the examination. He found that "nearly all have demonstrably liberal political sympathies, with heavy support for the Democratic party, pro-abortion-rights groups, and environmental activism in particular." It is important to remember that these two boards do not dictate content. Still, even if their politics are only incidental to NPR's liberal slant, the near-uniformity of their political views suggests that NPR attracts people with...

    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration must examine all military and veterans' hospitals to see where the system has failed, one of the leaders of the presidential commission to investigate the problems said Sunday. Donna Shalala, health secretary under President Clinton, said the commission will look at the system from the time "someone is hurt in Iraq and Afghanistan, all the way through, and to see not simply where the glitches are, but where the whole government has broken down." President Bush last week announced he had ordered a comprehensive review of conditions at military and veterans' hospitals, which have been...

    France's leading gynaecologists have challenged hard-line Muslims to bow to France's secular, "modern" rules of society, and to stop insisting that their wives are examined by female doctors.The heads of the French National College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians issued a public declaration, rejecting any moves to undermine the principle that public hospitals are part of a secular state, in which patients must accept being examined by a doctor of the opposite sex. The move came after a consultant in Paris was punched by a Muslim who was concerned that a male doctor wanted to examine his wife after complications in...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger can't say his public works bond proposals aren't getting thorough consideration by the Legislature. Whether he'll like the final product is another question. Legislative committees held nine hearings last week on various aspects of Schwarzenegger's plan, which includes selling $68 billion in bonds to help pay for transportation improvements, water and flood control projects, new schools, courthouses and certain other facilities. There are another 11 hearings scheduled this week, including the first meeting of a two-house conference committee that will try to put together a bond package for voters to consider, possibly in the...

Have I taken part in non-Catholic worship? Have I recommended myself regularly to God? Neglected my morning or evening prayers? Omitted my religious obligations because of human respect?

    Bush to hand over power during colon examination George W Bush says he'll temporarily transfer his powers to Dick Cheney while he's sedated for a colon examination. Doctors have recommended him to have a colonoscopy because they've found benign polyps during previous examinations. A senior White House official says the procedure could take an hour or so. The president says he's decided to transfer his powers to the vice president because the nation is at war. He said Mr Cheney will be "standing by - realising he's not going to be president that long." The procedure will be conducted at...
