After drawing attention from pro-life groups, Planned Parenthood's San Francisco affiliate removed from its website a purported letter from a girl thanking the abortion provider for helping conceal from her parents a rape that occurred when she was 11.

The American Life League's STOPP International is calling on California Attorney General Bill Lockyer to investigate, asking whether Planned Parenthood is trying to hide evidence of a crime. "Planned Parenthood acts as if it is exempt from the law," said STOPP International's executive director, Jim Sedlak.

A parent is challenging a New Jersey school district's ban on Christmas music with a lawsuit that has reached a federal appeals court.

Michael Stratechuk, who has two children enrolled in the South Orange-Maplewood School District, filed a brief yesterday in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, asserting the school district's ban on religious music conveys the impermissible, government-sponsored message of disapproval of and hostility toward religion in violation of the First Amendment's Establishment Clause.

WASHINGTON -- Months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States.

While many details about the program remain secret, officials familiar with it said the N.S.A. eavesdropped without warrants on up to 500 people in the United States at any given time. The list changes as some names are added and others dropped, so the number monitored in this country may have reached into the thousands over the past three years, several officials said. Overseas, about 5,000 to 7,000 people suspected of terrorist ties are monitored at one time, according to those officials.

The seeming U.S. epidemic of cases involving female teachers raping or molesting their students has been "sexported" Down Under, as Australia is experiencing a similar rash of cases.

Bridget Mary Nolan, 24, of Adelaide, Australia, is facing a possible seven-year prison term after admitting to three counts of sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old student in late July. Meanwhile, another woman teacher is facing charges for allegedly seducing one of her own 15-year-old students.

County Attorney Marguerite Wageling said she is considering several factors, including the message sent to the community by her decision. State law also requires her to consider the sophistication of the youth, any record and the severity of the crime.

In a small room at the University of California's headquarters in Oakland, Christopher Patti sat beside a stack of textbooks proposed for use by Calvary Chapel Christian School in Riverside County -- books UC rejected as failing to meet freshmen admissio

"What the university is doing is simply establishing what is and is not its entrance requirements. It's really a case of the university's ability to set its own admission standards. The Association of Christian Schools International, which claims 4,000 member schools including Calvary Chapel and 800 other schools in California, disagrees. On Aug. 24, it sued the university in federal court for religious bias.

Your elected representatives in Congress deny that this nation has a mandatory federal education curriculum. Congress hides the fact behind the historic arrangement of state and local control of schools.

The federal government denies that there is a federal curriculum that teaches world government over national sovereignty. Your Representatives in Congress are in the dark and the federal government is lying. The fact is, the building blocks of world government are being taught in a number of ways.

NEW YORK - Gloom and doom about jobs vanishing to India gripped the United States this week as three blue-blooded American corporate giants - JP Morgan Chase, Intel, and Microsoft - revealed plans to move thousands of jobs to the Indian subcontinent.

"India scored another victory in its battle to win jobs from the United States," observed The New York Post while reporting the back-to-back announcements by the three firms. "While such jobs aren't the most highly skilled in the investment banking food chain, they do represent a step up from the low-skilled jobs traditionally associated with outsourcing." JP Morgan plans to hire 4,500 workers in India. Intel plans to pour $1 billion into India. Microsoft will hire 3,000.

The justices appeared strongly inclined to uphold a law that withholds federal grants from schools that do not allow recruiters.

The military wants access to law schools on the same basis as other potential employers seeking to recruit students, although openly gay law students, of course, need not apply. The law schools insist that only those employers who pledge not to discriminate, against gay men and lesbians or anyone else, are welcome.

The Transportation Security Administration is making some of the most significant changes in the screening of airline passengers since procedures were revamped after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The changes include a new type of random search, a revision of the pat-down process and the end of a ban on small scissors and certain other sharp tools in carry-on luggage. The goal of the changes, which will be announced Friday and go into effect on Dec. 20, is to try to disrupt the now-familiar routine associated with security screening, a routine that federal officials fear would-be terrorists may have studied to figure out ways to circumvent it.
