Like the growing numbers passing through social services each month, Crowe is up against a wall that is a distinct structure of the poor. By losing her home, she's lost the privilege of choice.

Jolly said DSS does not place people but rather determines what rent amount they are entitled to. The agency will find them a home, he said. But people are free to search for an apartment on their own, as long as it does not cost more than the rent voucher. Crowe found an apartment in Middletown that was $114 per month more than the $735 that DSS allotted her.

For most Americans, homeschooling seems rather odd. Why bother with it?

We have had public and private schools with us all of our lives, as have our parents before us and their parents before them from time immemorial. Why not stick with what works? The thought would be touching, if it were historically accurate. It isn't. The concept of compulsory schools with mass attendance is a radically new idea to Western civilization, no older than industrialization. Indeed, industrialization arguably could not have taken place without the mass school, and therein lies a tale.

Will America's favorite technology really go dark next year? Depending on the outcome of discussions in Congress, television as we know it may end at exactly midnight Dec. 31, 2006.

That's the date Congress targeted, a decade ago, for the end of analog television broadcasting and a full cutover to a digital format. If enforced, that means that overnight, somewhere around 70 million television sets now connected to rabbit ears or roof-top antennas will suddenly and forever go blank, unless their owners purchase a special converter box. Back when the legislation was written, New Year's Eve 2006 probably looked as safely distant as the dark side of the moon.

Reagan, Wilson got more from moneyed, and some lawmakers and activists want the rich to do more to ease the state's deficit.

With the state entering its fourth straight year of large projected deficits, one proposed solution has re-emerged: Tax the rich - more and more. The idea is not new. Former Republican governors Ronald Reagan and Pete Wilson did it in the 1960s and 1990s. Why can't we do it now, some Democrats ask. Their proposals:

Stage set for clash with Senate; Bush wants energy bill by summer

The House voted late Wednesday to allow oil drilling in an Alaska wildlife refuge. The bill's sponsors said oil from Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, as much as a million barrels a day, will be needed to help curtail the country's growing dependence on oil imports.

IRS security flaws put taxpayers at risk, study finds. The IRS promised to fix any problems and find out if tax returns had been exposed to outsiders.

Computer-security flaws at the U.S. tax-collection agency expose millions of taxpayers to potential identity theft or illegal police snooping, according to a congressional report released Monday.

The Mesa Police Department is looking to add some primal instinct to its SWAT team. And to do that, it's looking to a monkey.

"Everybody laughs about it until they really start thinking about it," said Mesa Officer Sean Truelove, who builds and operates tactical robots for the suburban Phoenix SWAT team. "It would change the way we do business." The department is seeking about $100,000 in federal grant money to put the idea to use in Mesa SWAT operations. The monkey, which costs $15,000, is what Truelove envisions as the ultimate SWAT reconnaissance tool.

"Where's My Refund'," the popular Internet-based service used by taxpayers to check on their federal income tax refunds, now offers a safe and easy way to trace refund checks and update a flawed mailing address.

These enhancements allow taxpayers to start a trace for lost or missing refund checks and notify the Internal Revenue Service of an address change when a refund check goes undelivered.

High gasoline prices have been a fact of life in Europe for decades, but auto-dependent North Americans have had soft easy times. Now the other shoe is falling, and it's personal.

Cheap gas prices lured us into gas-guzzling hummers, fuel hungry SUVs and bigger, more powerful family cars. Some can afford this, and higher gas prices will probably not affect them much, but most of us will feel the crunch, and if it keeps up, it will affect our lifestyles. It may even seriously damage the national economy.

If you travel to the Caribbean, Mexico or even Canada, the federal government soon will require that you have a valid passport to get back home. For the first time, Canadian's will need a passport to travel south.

Aimed at further reinforcing the U.S. perimeter against terrorist threats, the new rules for air, land and sea travel, announced yesterday by the departments of State and Homeland Security, will be phased in over two years between December 2005 and December 2007. The impact of these changes could be especially strong in the Pacific Northwest, just south of Canada's British Columbia, site of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
