    SACRAMENTO – In January, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a "bold new era of reform" that he said would make government more accountable, improve education and control state spending. He later endorsed a series of five ballot measures for the Nov. 8 special election intended to turn his rhetoric into reality. But mistakes have shrunk Schwarzenegger's once broad agenda. Two of the measures were written so poorly that the governor decided to jettison them. A third, which deals with how political districts are drawn, faces a legal challenge today over a flaw that could cause it to be dropped from the...

    Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed, known as much for his socializing as his political stances, was arrested in the Warehouse District early Tuesday morning and charged with drunken driving. Reed, 44, said in an interview that he spent part of the night at Liquid, a trendy bar on West Sixth Street, after leaving Monday's council meeting. "I came out [of the bar], didn't go 20 feet and boom, they were on me," he said. Reed faces charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, not wearing a seat belt, driving left of center and changing lanes without signaling. Special prosecutor C....

    It’s the same stuff on a different day. I am outraged, but I really should not be surprised. Sandy Berger has stolen documents—National Security documents—during a time of war. All of his defenders are saying that this is no big deal. Hmm. No big deal. The first AP article about this scandal suggested that the documents contained “identification of America's terror vulnerabilities at airports to sea ports.” These are the same documents that are now lost and perhaps unrecoverable. Maybe lost in Sandy Berger’s alleged stacks and piles of papers? Of course, the FBI searched his home and office and...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Former national security adviser Sandy Berger, the subject of a criminal investigation over the disappearance of terrorism documents, stepped aside on Tuesday as an informal adviser to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. "Mr. Berger does not want any issue surrounding the 9/11 commission to be used for partisan purposes. With that in mind he has decided to step aside as an informal adviser to the Kerry campaign until this matter is resolved," said Lanny Breuer, Berger's attorney. The investigation had threatened to become a political problem for Kerry a week before his nominating convention in Boston in...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Samuel Berger, former President Clinton's national security adviser, is under federal criminal investigation for allegedly removing classified documents and handwritten notes from a National Archives screening room during preparations for his testimony before the 9/11 commission. Sources familiar with the investigation confirmed it to CNN on Monday. The sources told CNN the investigation began last October, after Berger spent roughly 30 hours over three or four days reviewing what one said was "tens of thousands of pages" of Clinton administration documents to comply with a request from the 9/11 commission. Berger was designated as the official from...

Anybody who is sitting on the fence on which way to go, or anybody who is an Independent, after watching the film your vote won't likely be going to Bush. And he says it is not him (Moore) saying this; it is the people who have seen the film. Immediately after accepting the Award and leaving the stage, the first words spoken to you are from two interns. One offers and says, "Champagne?" The other says, "Breath mint?"

        Scientists exposed as sloppy reporters   09:30 14 December 02 Hazel Muir   A cunning statistical study has exposed scientists as sloppy reporters. When they write up their work and cite other people's papers, most do not bother to read the original. The discovery was made by Mikhail Simkin and Vwani Roychowdhury of the University of California, Los Angeles, who study the way information spreads around different kinds of networks. They noticed in a citation database that misprints in references are fairly common, and that a lot of the mistakes are identical. This suggests that many scientists take short cuts,...
