     After the gunfight on New Year's Eve A saying that has become  common on the Internets is "When seconds count, police are only minutes away".   I wonder what the response time would be on New Year's Eve, when police resources are stretched especially thin.  Could you expect it to be longer for an unincorporated part of King County, Washington state, served by the Sheriff's department?  How long would it take for police to respond to a trespassing violation? In this tragic story out of Renton, Washington, it does not appear that the homeowner had much choice.   He was 50...

    Tales of a nation under attack, which recur when public anxiety rises, multiply at theaters and on TV. Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" is acutely attuned to the zeitgeist of post-9/11 America. In this adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel, Earth is still the most desirable piece of real estate in the Milky Way, the envy of the galactic neighborhood. But this retelling of the alien-invasion story, set in modern-day New Jersey rather than Wells' Edwardian London, tacitly acknowledges American fears of an attack on US cities. A principal aspect of the film is the way a nation unites...

    President Bush and his pal, Mexican President Vicente Fox, want to solve the problem of illegal immigration by allowing "guest workers" to pour over the border, so long as they promise to return home after three years. Some anti-immigration activists maintain that's inviting reconquista, a retaking of the American Southwest by Mexico. Which means there is little chance a guest worker plan - aimed at providing cheap labor for farmers and large businesses - will get through Congress. That's because nothing - not gay marriage, the war in Iraq, abortion, you name it - gets Americans arguing as harshly as...

    A fast-growing marsh grass cropping up on the shores of San Francisco Bay looms as one of the nastiest invaders ever to hit the tidelands, experts and government officials say. Introduced innocently in the 1970s to check erosion in the southern reaches of the bay, the grass is building toward a growth explosion that threatens to choke much of the bay unless landowners join to stop it, say officials and researchers studying the problem. Wetlands experts working with the California Coastal Conservancy are leading a campaign to stamp out the existing 500 acres of the grass, Spartina alterniflora or East...
