Twenty-five years ago Bill Benson, a former Illinois Department of Revenue investigator, began a trip across the forty-eight states that comprised the Union in 1913 seeking documentary evidence regarding the ratification of the 16th Amendment.

This was a most important undertaking, because the government uses the 16th Amendment as its sole authority to tax an individual's wages and salaries. During his two-year trip, Benson collected thousands of certified legal documents from both state and federal archives documenting exactly how the 16th Amendment was acted on by each state legislature and handled by the office of the Secretary of State for the United States.

Experts said the movement of students from storm-ravaged areas could become the largest student resettlement in the nation's history.

School districts from Maine to Washington State were enrolling thousands of students from New Orleans and other devastated Gulf Coast districts yesterday in what experts said could become the largest student resettlement in the nation's history. Students displaced by Hurricane Katrina were led to their first-grade classroom yesterday at East Houston Intermediate School. Schools welcoming the displaced students must not only provide classrooms, teachers and textbooks, but under the terms of President Bush's education law must also almost immediately begin to raise their scholastic achievement unless some provisions of that law are waived.

Last week, that jury awarded more than $250 million to a Texas familiy, ruling that the maker of Vioxx was liable for the death of their loved one. Jacksonville widow Toni Raices says Vioxx killed her husband, too.
