  Message from Groundskeeper Willie

I’d like to ask for everyone’s help in maintaining a clean environment both inside and outside of our work spaces. Please ensure that all trash which is discarded goes into a trash receptacle. I know that there are raccoons that malinger in the parking lot in the evenings, and they may even be the culprits that are creating some of the messes that we’re seeing. However, I don’t believe that they are leaving cigarette butts all around the back of the building. There are numerous receptacles located in various areas for the proper disposal of cigarette butts.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
 
 
Good morning,
Just a reminder that all 401k enrollments and changes will be due tomorrow, April 1st, by 10 am. Anything received after this deadline will not be processed until the July 1st effective date.
I have attached the enrollment/change form for your convenience.
If you have questions, please let me know.

  Iron Maiden
Run to the Hills

White man came across the sea
Brought us pain and misery
Killed our tribes killed our creed
Took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for Cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills run for your lives
Run to the hills run for your lives

Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good Indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills run for your lives
(repeat to end)

  Dispatches From The War In Iraq

ISC Research is a Black Think Tank In Chicago. The analytical center was created recently by a group of Black journalists and military experts from within the Black community to provide accurate and up-to-date news and analysis of the war against Iraq.

Today we can see that the US advance is characterized by disorganized and "impulsive" actions. The troops are simply trying to find weak spots in the Iraqi defenses and break through them until they hit the next ambush or the next line of defense.

Not a single goal set before the coalition forces were met on time. During the nine days of the war the coalition has failed:

1. to divide Iraq in half along the An-Nasiriya - Al-Ammara line,
2. to surround and to destroy the Iraqi group of forces at Basra,
3. to create an attack group between the Tigris and the Euphrates with a front toward Baghdad,
4. to disrupt Iraq's military and political control, to disorganize Iraq's forces and to destroy the main Iraqi attack forces.

A whole range of problems that require their own solutions was uncovered directly on the battlefield. Thus, combat in Iraq raised serious concerns about the problem of coordination between units from different services.

Limited decision-making time and the ability to detect and to engage an enemy at a great distance make "friendly fire" one of the mostserious problems of modern warfare. For now the coalition has no adequate solution to this problem. At one location or another every day of this war the coalition troops were attacking friendly forces.

Renata had said something about the kids killed at Santana, the other kids shot in El Cajon. You’re not really surprised it happened there, in El Cajon and Santee. People call it “Klantee,” and while they laugh, they’re not really joking.

“Just that … it was different when we … I dunno.”

On my back, with my head in her lap, she exhaled straight above me. Like a locomotive, the smoke dissipating and disappearing. She was considerate enough to turn her head each time she took a drag, so as to not crackle the ashes down into my face. My eyes are bad enough as it is.

I thought of fighting as a kid, always dreading it beforehand but never really minding it once it started. The adrenal rush, the battle to survive and avoid embarrassment. As I got older, the whole business – while occasionally necessary, I’ll admit – makes me kinda sad.

What, I dunno, maybe brass knuckles? Some kid had a knife. The guy in the Maiden shirt. Jason Hickey, his name was. He was in my shop class the day I cut my finger, and never gave me shit about anything. Everyone was afraid of him. He told me that he had a clock radio with an alarm that woke him up each morning playing the Vincent Price monologue at the beginning of Number of the Beast. To this day I still haven’t been able to find a clock-radio that does that.

He might’ve had a knife. Maybe someone else did, but there were also probably kids who did coke, too.

All I wanted to do was chase the girls.

Officials from President Bush on down are scrambling to say they never claimed the war would be won quickly. But this was precisely the message from officers involved in planning the war. It was, in fact, the premise underlying the whole war plan.
 
 
Five days into the war, Saddam's regime has not collapsed, even though the overwhelming superiority of the forces deployed by U.S. military commanders makes its eventual demise inevitable. The crucial test of the duration and cost in human lives of the campaign to oust the regime may come within days, as coalition forces engage with key Republican Guard divisions deployed to make the battle for Baghdad as bloody as possible.
 
  The Dangers of Tablature Dependence/Tabaholics Anonymous

In the past 20 years, guitar publications have strayed from a primarily standard musical notation format to a tablature format. Tablature is a method of notation which does not require the user to actually know what notes he or she is playing. It simply indicates at which frets notes are to be placed. I am not a great sight reader on guitar (which is usually the case amongst guitar players), however, I did teach myself to play by ear and by note. Tablature is one of many learning methods, or "open doors" as I call them, but I would like you to ponder what I feel are some potentially limiting and perhaps some crippling results of tablature dependence.

Tab can keep a person from learning by ear. I have taught literally hundreds of people how to play guitar. I have seen countless cases of kids and adults who would never venture in to learning a song by ear, because they could find it in tab. In my opinion, this is a form of laziness which hinders a person from developing an original style, as well as developing a "good ear." I have an analogy for "tabaholics." They are like the student who steals the answers to a test then memorize the answers. The student gets a good grade on the test, but is left with no understanding or greater insight pertaining to what they just "regurgitated."

Tab can limit knowledge of the fret board. Tab shows the guitarist one way of playing something. If the same thing is learned by ear, the musician will very likely discover several ways to play the very same thing. Likewise, if the musician learns the same thing by note, they will also discover different ways of playing the same idea, and will ponder different choices of fingering that would have been dictated to them by the person who did the tab transcription.

Tab can hinder one's knowledge of music theory. Music theory involves a basic relationship of notes letter names by numbers. Since tab does not deal with thes relationships, it does not reinforce, nor make known, the relationships that would be helpful to a person to theoretically be able to describe to themselves or to others, what it is about a certain lick thyat is so appealing. For example, "I really like how the flat five (Eb) sounds over the A7 chord. When you know the relationship of a sound to a situation, it can then be transferred to a different key(transposition). The tabaholic is not going to be as likely to make those comparisons and discoveries.

OK Guitarists, are you ready to get mad at me? Guitarists are typically among the most musically illiterate musicians I have ever encountered In part, I blame this on Tab. Tab is a quick fix but a long term hinderance. So few guitarists can read music that it is pitiful. If you are teaching yourself to play, teach your self to read music, and to play by ear. It aint rocket science dude! (or dudettes) If you can count to 13 and say tyhe alphabet from A to G, you can learn the basics of music. If you are taking lessons from a teacher who does not teach note reading or the concept of playing by ear, get a new teacher.

  Boycott of American Goods Over Iraq War Gains

(Reuters) - No more Coca-Cola or Budweiser, no Marlboro, no American whiskey or even American Express cards -- a growing number of restaurants in Germany are taking everything American off their menus to protest the war in Iraq. Although the protests are mainly symbolic, waiters in dozens of bars and restaurants in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Bonn and other German cities are telling patrons, "Sorry, Coca-Cola is not available any more due to the current political situation."

Has anyone seen the vice president lately?

I don't know much about politics -- it's a self-righteous man's game -- but I have concluded there must be some strategy when it comes to the public appearances of our officials. Like, sometimes you see Bush on TV every day, and then he's gone for a week and it's Powell's turn to be everywhere.

Cheney makes the rounds, disappears, and suddenly Rumsfeld is everywhere. Or Tom Ridge or Ashcroft.

It's like now you see 'em, now you don't.

The fact that these guys seem to be so interchangeable suggests that the media is in on it, and they aren't as biased as The Right would have you believe.

Outspoken documentarian Michael Moore split the audience at Sunday night's Academy Awards by repeating his verbal attack on President George W. Bush. Moore used his 45-second acceptance speech for Best Documentary to blast Bush, as he had on Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards. The director, who invited his fellow nominees to join him onstage to show their solidarity in his message to the President, received a standing ovation from most of the Oscars audience but a minority booed as he hammered Bush.

Moore said, "We live in a fictitious time. We live in a time where we have a fictitious President conducting a war for fictitious reasons. We are against this war Mr. Bush. Shame on you." Oscar host Steve Martin helped to calm things down after Moore bounded offstage by joking, "The teamsters are helping Michael Moore into the trunk of his limo."

But Moore continued his rant backstage when he faced the press. When he was asked why he chose to make his comments at the Academy Awards, he said, "I'm an American and you don't leave your citizenship when you enter the Kodak Theatre." He then played down the booing that could be heard during his speech: "Those were all my friends and relatives. I said Hollywood has got such a bad rap for being a bunch of left wingers it would be really cool if a bunch of you booed. But, seriously, do your jobs - don't report there was a split decision in the hall because five wild people booed."
 
 
``What can I say other than it was just an absolutely horrible performance by us on defense,'' Phoenix coach Frank Johnson said.

The Sonics shot just 37 percent, but Lewis was 12-for-16, 10-for-13 in the second half. Many of his baskets were uncontested layups. Johnson singled out Shawn Marion's poor defense.

``Shawn couldn't stop him,'' Johnson said. ``I tried to get someone else on him, but Shawn said he wanted him, and still couldn't stop him.''

Marion accepted the blame.

``I guess I wasn't doing what I'm supposed to do,'' he said. ``I put it on my shoulders.''

  Subject: Theft from a patient (CVPD case#03-05111)

On 03-17-2003 at approximately 1500 hrs a person wearing a stolen doctors smock posed as a physician and stole a very valuable ring from a patient at a local hospital. The suspect in this case may be familiar with medical practices and knew of medical procedures that the victim had earlier in the day.

The suspect conducted a brief examination of the victim. The examination consisted of talking to the victim and taking her vital signs. While speaking to the victim, the suspect told the victim that he was going to remove her ring and put it in the hospital safe.

The suspect is described as being a White male in his 40’s with an Olive complexion. The suspect has black hair with some gray. The victim believes that the suspect may have a very subtle Mediterranean or Middle Eastern accent.

The ring taken is described as a yellow gold USN Annapolis graduate ring. The ring had the victim’s wedding ring soldered to the Annapolis ring. The approximate value of this ring is $10,000.

If you have any information regarding this incident please call Detective Matt Hardesty (619) 691-5112 or Lt. Peltekian (619) 585-5670
 
 

I heard today that rapist film director Roman Polanski was applauded on last night's Oscar telecast. What exactly are the terms of penance for raping a 13-year-old girl?
I mean, a guy who robs a liquor store when he's 19 is one thing, but Polanski was in his 40s when he gave that girl booze and a pill and forced himself on her.

I know why they booed Michael Moore -- though I also heard he was applauded by a great many people -- but cheering a rapist is something I can't quite come to terms with.

  Michael Moore booed as he slams Iraq war at Oscars

HOLLYWOOD (AFP) - Famed US documentary maker Michael Moore used his win of an Oscar to launch a violent attack on US President George W. Bush and war in Iraq amid loud boos from the audience.

"We live in fictitious times," he said when picking up the award for best documentary for his anti-gun film "Bowling for Columbine."

"We live in a time with fictitious election results that elect fictitious presidents. We live in a time when we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons.

  Bolstering the reputation of fraternity members everywhere

DAVIDSON - Five Davidson College students are charged with a felony after a white goose was lured away with bread crumbs and beaten to death with a golf club at the town's park.

The men, affiliated with Kappa Sigma fraternity, spent Friday night in the Mecklenburg County jail. Davidson College has suspended activities of the fraternity while it investigates the incident.

Davidson Police Chief John Kearin said he expects more arrests early this week.

Kearin said a town employee saw a group of men get out of two vehicles at Roosevelt Wilson Park about 3:30 Friday afternoon and lure the goose away from others with bread crumbs.

Then one of the men repeatedly hit the goose with a golf club. Once it stopped moving, another man tossed it into the trunk and they drove away, the chief said.

 
 

TO: All Faculty, Staff, and Students

FROM: Stephen L. Weber
SDSU President

SUBJECT: Iraq


Consequent to the outbreak of war in Iraq, the Department of Homeland
Security has maintained the national alert level at orange - a high risk of
possible terrorist activity.

I am writing to assure you that San Diego State is in close and regular
contact with the local office of the FBI and other law enforcement
agencies. To date we have no knowledge of any specific security threats to
our campus. However, by their very nature, major universities are "soft
targets." Please be vigilant, report anything of concern to the Department
of Public Safety at 619-594-1991 (in case of emergency, dial 911 from any
campus telephone), and reacquaint yourself with the campus emergency
preparedness procedures (http://bfa.sdsu.edu/emergency/). The heightened
level of alert is likely to continue for some time; it will require of each
of us increased awareness and concern for our mutual security.

There is another, more immediate threat to our campus - a threat to the
values and practices that make SDSU a great university. A university must
always be a place that is open to different ideas and respectful of
alternative political views. An important part of the learning environment
we work so hard to create comes from that diversity of viewpoints and
values. Because it is so critical to who we are and to the human growth
and development we foster, we must each work proactively to preserve and
strengthen the climate of civility and tolerance for alternative views that
has been a hallmark of our campus.

Finally, while each of us has, and is entitled to, her/his own views about
this war, there are some members of our SDSU family who are more
immediately affected by the war. Please be supportive of our visiting
international students and scholars. They are our guests; their presence
here enriches the learning experience for us all. Please also be
supportive of our ROTC cadets and of our many students and employees who
are in the reserves or who have family members serving in the
military. This is a difficult time for us all but particularly for them.

Allow me to conclude by reminding us that the work that we are all doing
here the work of teaching and learning; the work of discovering one another
and the wonderful variety of ways of being human; the work of recognizing
our own human limits and conceits; the work of understanding work that
takes place here and at other universities around the world, is our best
hope for a future free of war.

The images are the same ones that were on TV during college. I remember trying to convince a girl that during times of war it is important for people to be close to one another. She wasn’t having any of it.

The United States of America is bombing the hell out of a city that from here looks a lot like Tucson, Arizona.

I don’t care, and I’m not all that interested in the NCAA basketball tournament that’s been bumped off CBS so the network can air grainy and blurry images of a burning Baghdad. I didn’t fill out a bracket; by keeping the $10 entry fee, I can almost buy a share of Cisco Systems.

Today is payday, and my direct deposit has nearly caused me to forget about the polarization of American politics and the disappearing middle class to which I aspire.

Pay has infused me with goodwill.
No, I feel good anyway.

I hope you have a nice day, and please try to get outside this weekend. It feels good.

  By this reasoning, it is okay to assassinate President Bush

Assassinating a foreign leader runs counter to a 1976 order signed by President Ford. But White House officials cite international law, which states that, once a war begins, there are no limits on military actions against enemy leaders. Saddam, as Commander-in-Chief of Iraq’s Armed Forces, is a legitimate target, they say.
 
 
Congratulations, little man, you got what you want. It seems like it's been a long time -- actually, since your dad was in charge -- that we waged a real war.

  Top White House anti-terror boss resigns

"Hardly a surprise," said one former intelligence official. "We have sacrificed a war on terror for a war with Iraq. I don't blame Randy at all. This just reflects the widespread thought that the war on terror is being set aside for the war with Iraq at the expense of our military and intel resources and the relationships with our allies."
 
 
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The oldest voice in the U.S. Congress rose on Wednesday to denounce as misguided President Bush's march to war with Iraq.

"Today I weep for my country," said West Virginia Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd. "No more is the image of America one of strong, yet benevolent peacekeeper. ... Around the globe, our friends mistrust us, our word is disputed, our intentions are questioned.

"We flaunt our superpower status with arrogance," Byrd said, adding: "After war has ended the United States will have to rebuild much more than the country of Iraq. We will have to rebuild America's image around the globe."

Gas skyrocketed immediately, but it took a few weeks for the price of narcotics to inch upward. Jimmy Jazz had the dough, so he told me:

"Fucking TVs everywhere, right? The smoke in New York. Busses stopped running, they didn't know about SEPTA, any of the trains, was it gonna be World War III. Someone said something about a plane hijacked over Texas."

Nearly smiling as he spoke, Jimmy's eyes surged.

Spanish-American War, war waged against Spain by the United States in 1898, to liberate Cuba from Spanish rule. The war grew out of the Cuban struggle for independence.

A strong reaction to this conflict developed in the United States on both humanitarian and economic grounds. In 1897 Spain attempted to compromise by granting Cuba partial autonomy and abolishing the system of prison camps. The insurgents, however, pressed for independence. On February 15, 1898, the U.S. battleship Maine, sent to the port of Havana to protect U.S. citizens and property, was sunk by an explosion. The cause was unknown, but reports pointed to sabotage. Both the United States and Spain declared war.

On May 1 the Spanish fleet anchored in Manila Bay, in the Philippines, was destroyed by U.S. naval forces; on July 1 U.S. troops penetrated the outer defenses of the city of Santiago de Cuba, Cuba; and on July 3 a Spanish naval squadron was destroyed while attempting to cross the U.S. blockade of Santiago harbor. On July 18 the Spanish government requested a settlement. Spain relinquished Cuba and ceded the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Guam to the United States.

In 1969 it was determined that a defective boiler caused the explosion on the Maine.

As soon as I heard the gunshot, the first thing I thought was, I hope no one was hit. It was a couple of blocks away, so I couldn't see if anyone was down.

It's quite a thrill, they say, shooting a gun. A certain amount of power attends discharging a firearm, perhaps the ultimate power. Or should I say, Supreme Power.
The Power to take a life.

To play God.

I don't know, but I wouldn't want the responsibility. Maybe that's why I haven't shot anyone to death. I wouldn't want to accept responsibility for the act. I'd have to drive through TJ, down the new highway to Mexico City. From there I'd take a Mexicana flight to Caracas, clear Customs and hop on an Aeropostal shuttle to Merida. Up there in the Andes, I'd cool out, drink a lot of coffee and rest.

In 10 years, I'd head back to Mexico City and see if the world was still in one piece.

I'm totally on your side on this one. I don't know what the company thinks it's achieving with this new filtering policy. If they think people are abusing the system, fine, talk to those people.

There are Muslim terrorists talking at their taxicabs in front of my home. I don’t understand a word they say, but I know they’re not talking about women.

My dog looks at them curiously, and it comes to me that the terrorists the governments tells me to watch out for are of the Muslim variety.

The taxis, and the 9/11 arrests in Boston.

I don’ t know what to do.
 
 
When Jennifer went to her car to get her cigarettes she was attacked by a man with a shovel. The man swung at her, clipping Jennifer on the shoulder and chipping the paint on the hood of the Ford wagon.

As the man raised the shovel above his head as if reloading, Jennifer pulled a small, sturdy knife from her pocketbook and stabbed him the ribs. Momentarily frozen by the searing pain, the man looked like a union worker in relief: tool aloft, crazed determination on his face.

He fell, bleeding, and the shovel tipped onto the gravel parking lot.

Jennifer found herself spitting at him as she jumped into the wagon and sped off.

She wouldn’t return for weeks.
 
 
This sentence, uttered by a 28-year-old woman on a London stage, may have torpedoed a juggernaut music group, one that has sold well more than 20 million albums:

“Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas.”

They’re burning records, boycotting airplay, and suggesting the group rename itself “Terrorist Chicks.”

Love it or leave it, Chicks, seems to be the message.

Personally, I think the world is a better place with one less saccharine faux-country act, but this furor is amazing.

I don’t think there’s any chance the group’ll be able to salvage its career. After all, the very sentiment directed at them and embraced by their detractors is the one that pervades America and the administration that rules it:

We are Americans, and we don’t compromise. We take a stand, and we don’t negotiate.

Reconsideration is a sign of weakness.

Glory be.

Simply put, this is the greatest article I've ever read.
 
 
In an apparent attempt to come up with a guise other than warmonger, George W. Bush is being hastily repackaged as "deeply religious."

Bush has always been officially described as "born again" — a useful device to explain the transformation from his early days (up to the age of 40) of heavy drinking and carousing.

But the notion that Bush is motivated by deep religious convictions is being pushed with such vigour these days by his supporters that one senses an orchestrated campaign — perhaps to prevent worldwide skepticism about the motives for the Iraq invasion from spreading to the U.S.
 
  A suggestive e-mail

I suppose some degree of commerce would grind to a halt if telephone solicitors weren't able to call people at home during dinner hour, but that doesn't make it any more pleasant.

Now Steve Rubenstein, a writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, has proposed Three Little Words, based on his brief experience in a telemarketing operation that would stop the nuisance for all time. The three little words are: Hold On, Please... Saying this while putting down your phone and walking off instead of hanging up immediately would make each telemarketing call so time-consuming that boiler rooms would grind to a halt. When you eventually hear the phone company's beep-beep-beep tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task. This might be one of those articles you'll want to e-mail to your friends. Three little words that eliminate telephone soliciting.

Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a real sales person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine dialed call and it kicks your number out of their system. Since doing this, our phone calls have decreased dramatically.

Another Good Idea

When you get ads in your phone or utility bill, include them with the payment let the companies throw them away. When you get those pre-approved letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and junk like that, most of them come with postage paid return envelopes, right?

Well, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little envelopes. Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send the pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day then just send them their application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. You can send it back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! Eventually, the banks and credit card companies will begin getting their junk back in the mail. Let's let them know what it's like to get junk mail, and the best of it is that they're paying for it. Twice.

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they say e-mail is cutting into their business, and that's why they need to increase postage again.

Send this to a friend or two or three...or fifty.

No one is up in arms about overtime. Some higher ups have mentioned that we have some overtime here and there, and they're not all that concerned, but they mentioned it. So I just thought I'd say that I understand that overtime means you're working hard, and that the daily OT rules make it near impossible to avoid having some overtime on your check practically every pay period, but we should try our best to make sure any OT is legitimately necessary.

Let me know if you have any concerns.

P.S. This does NOT mean that you should ever work off the clock just to avoid OT.

Dressed in a wig, veil and sunglasses, Elizabeth Smart told the police officers who discovered her Wednesday in the Salt Lake City suburb of Sandy that her name was "Augustine." She said that the couple accompanying her — Brian Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee — were her parents.

"We took her aside ... she kind of just blurted out, `I know who you think I am. You guys think I'm that Elizabeth Smart girl who ran away,'" Officer Bill O'Neal said.

"Her heart was beating so hard you could see it through her chest," he added.

HR is getting sticklerish about the rules, but then, that's part of their job. I'm sure everyone's aware that the reason they're so picky about lunch breaks and overtime and such is that they're trying to live up to the laws protecting workers. Personally, I find it kind of annoying that you can't skip lunch of your own accord, but them's the rules.

I think everyone here follows these rules pretty much anyway, and I don't plan to become Big Brother. Take your lunch time whenever you want, and try to adhere to the rules.

In 1957 Miles Davis went to France for a short tour and while there he recorded the soundtrack for the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud. This CD contains the original LP of material plus 19 minutes of unreleased alternate versions. Better than many soundtracks, this music (which also features the tenor of Barney Wilen and pianist Rene Urtreger) does not really stand on its own without the film, so it's of mostly historical interest. — Scott Yanow

  Smarts Frustrated With Police Progress
BY KEVIN CANTERA
and MICHAEL VIGH
THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

Two divergent theories about who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart -- one advanced by detectives and the other formulated by the girl's family -- have led the missing teenager's family to openly criticize police for the first time.

Since the June 5 abduction, the Smart family has been careful not to fault Salt Lake City police investigators trying to crack the case.

But now Tom Smart, Elizabeth's uncle, says police are dragging their feet in the pursuit of a homeless drifter fingered by the crime's lone witness, Elizabeth's sister, 10-year-old Mary Katherine Smart, in October. To that point, she had not mentioned vagabond preacher Brian David Mitchell, who worked odd jobs for the Smarts for five hours in November 2001.

"They should have caught this guy by now," said Tom Smart, who has often spoken on behalf of the family. But "the police are too vested in [their top suspect Richard] Ricci. . . . It's a way to cover your ass."

Tom Smart called Mary Katherine's possible identification of Mitchell "the biggest lead right now."

While Elizabeth's father, Ed Smart, tempered the harshness of his brother's criticism, he too expressed "frustration" at public statements made by police dismissing Mitchell as a potential suspect.

"I hope police comments aren't downsizing the chance to find Elizabeth," Ed Smart said. "We can't afford to make assumptions. . . . When the only eyewitness says it could be [Mitchell], that is important."

The family also became frustrated when police chose not to publicize the information about Mitchell, Ed Smart said.

"They said if we go public it could scare him off. . . . I say the public can be very helpful," he said.

Lt. Jim Jensen, the lead detective in the Smart case, said he understands the Smarts' frustration, but said "this is a lead we're looking into. It's a lead we've been actively following for a while now."

Jensen said "as we speak" an FBI agent in Miami is following a credible sighting of Mitchell, who worked on the Smarts' roof and yard, according to Ed Smart.

Jensen added that "every cop in Salt Lake City is looking for him, his family is actively looking for him. He's one of many people in this investigation we want to speak to."

Since early in the investigation, police have placed the late Richard Ricci, a handyman who worked on the Smart's home in 2001, "at the top of the list" of potential suspects in the teen's disappearance. Arrested days after the kidnapping on a parole violation, Ricci died in custody in August of a brain hemorrhage.

"Right now our leads have pointed us in one direction -- to Ricci," said Salt Lake City Assistant Police Chief Scott Folsom, "but we will look at other possibilities."

Jensen, too, bristled at Tom Smart's suggestion that investigators are too heavily focused on Ricci to look thoroughly at Mitchell.

"Look, if we wanted to blame Ricci for this, we would have closed the case by now and told the Smarts we were no longer investigating it," Jensen said, adding that two full-time investigators, several part-time investigators, and agents with the Salt Lake City FBI are still trying to solve the case. At its peak, the investigation involved more than 100 police officers and FBI agents.

"I believe the police are trying to help us. I have tried to work with the police and I continue to do that," Ed Smart said. "The frustration isn't with detectives. . . . I believe the detectives on the ground are trying to do the best they can."

Until his death, the Smarts repeatedly begged the incarcerated Ricci to come forward with any information, saying he had not fully explained his actions and whereabouts around the time of the kidnapping. But in an interview Tuesday with The Salt Lake Tribune, Tom Smart defended Ricci, saying "he cooperated with police. . . . Ricci gave voluntary polygraphs."

Tom Smart added that Mary Katherine, who shared a bed with Elizabeth and feigned sleep during her sister's abduction, "has always said it wasn't Ricci, [but] the police did not want us to tell anybody [that]."

In October, when the girl told her father she thought the abductor was Mitchell, "it was the mother of all epiphanies," Tom Smart said.

The family went immediately to police but did not publicize the development until February, when Elizabeth's parents announced a $10,000 reward to anybody who could definitively clear Ricci.

"We believe there is somebody out there who can clear him," said Tom Smart, adding that Mary Katherine "would have known [if it was] Ricci." Based on Mary Katherine's description of the abductor's movements in the home, he said the intruder did not seem familiar with the house, as Ricci would have been.

Although Ricci, a career criminal, was never charged with the kidnapping, before his death prosecutors alleged he had burglarized the Smart home while working odd jobs.

Police theorized that Ricci was attempting a similar burglary at the Smart home when the girl awoke and was snatched.

"It could be that it's somebody other than Ricci, it could be somebody other [than Mitchell]," Jensen said. "I believe this case is going to be solved. . . . We're going to find out who did this."
 
 
This email is being sent in response to media calls to my office for comment from Brenda van Dam about the Elizabeth Smart developments. This happiest of news is having a tremendous emotional effect on Brenda for reasons anyone can imagine. She has decided not to do any media interviews this evening but asked me to share her thoughts with all of you:

Elizabeth and her family will have a wonderful second chance to live out their lives together. This is such a beautiful happy ending and while it still hurts so much that Danielle's life was taken from her and from us, I'm truly happy for the Smart family. To me the most important message of both Elizabeth and Danielle's stories is to never give up hope and never stop searching, with the community's help, until a missing child is rescued or found.
 
 
She was right under their noses, and they couldn't find her.

Iraq is the first instance when the Bush doctrine is being applied and it is provoking an allergic reaction. The Bush doctrine is built on two pillars: (1) The United States will do everything in its power to maintain its unquestioned military supremacy; and (2) the United States arrogates the right to preemptive action.

These pillars support two classes of sovereignty: American sovereignty, which takes precedence over international treaties and obligations, and the sovereignty of all other states. This is reminiscent of George Orwell's Animal Farm: All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. To be sure, the Bush doctrine is not stated starkly; it is buried in Orwellian doublespeak. The doublespeak is needed because the doctrine contradicts American values.
