        San Jose and San Francisco... not a surprise. Northern Cal
        is still the best place to live.
        \_ What are you talking about? San Jose was 6th (above SF) and
           SF was 15th. If you rate "best place to live" as "best place
           to find a job" (which I don't) neither of these qualify and

5/28    Washington Post Correction:
        The May 27 editorial "The President's Pick" incorrectly referred
        to Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as the daughter of
        "immigrant" parents. Judge Sotomayor's parents were not immigrants
        but were born in Puerto Rico after passage of a 1917 law that
        automatically conferred U.S. citizenship on island-born residents.

2/27    CA unemployment increases from 9.3% to 10.1% for Jan
        \_ Good thing the legislature passed the biggest tax increase in
           history!  That should solve it.
           \_ because cutting taxes has done such a great job so far!
                \_ it has.. giving mortgages to poor folks did us in

7/5     I think this is the first time a CA cop has EVER been put on trial
        for murdering a black man.
        \_ Really?  CA cop, or CA white cop?
        \_ The case marked the first murder prosecution of an on-duty Bay Area
           police officer. Prosecutors rarely file charges against police for
           shootings. A Chronicle review of police use-of-force cases around

5/4     Why does The Netherlands have such a sustained lower unemployment
                 \_ Why is it The Netherlands? Is it like an LA Freeway?
        rate and higher growth than the US? Maybe we can replicate their

        \_ Start by not spending all your money on military and prisons.

More Judge Refuses to Drop Case Against DeLay Ally By R Jeffrey Smith Washington Post Staff Writer Wednesday, July 13, 2005; The ruling was the latest of several in Texas courts to run against forme r officials of Texans for a Republican Majority, which was created by De Lay and his political aides to orchestrate a 2002 takeover of the Texas House. That victory in turn led to a redistricting of Texas congressiona l seats and helped cement GOP control of the US House of Representativ es. Politics Trivia The mother of White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan is running for office. Sign Up Now The legal dispute has its roots in Texas's long-standing prohibition on t he use of corporate money in state elections and the group's collection of more than a half million dollars of such funds, which it poured into the races of 17 Republicans elected to the state House. In September 2004, a grand jury indicted John Colyandro, who directed the Texas group, on charges of illegally collecting the money. Colyandro, a veteran of White House political adviser Karl Rove's direct-mail firm, had sought to have the indictment dismissed on grounds that the law was poorly drafted and infringed on protected rights. District Judge Robert Perkins, ruling in Austin, denied the motion, clear ing an obstacle to Colyandro's eventual trial after appeals are heard. I n remarks from the bench, he indicated he plans to dismiss next month a similar motion by Jim Ellis, the Texas group's chief fundraiser, who was indicted for money-laundering in the case. In May, another state judge, ruling in a civil case, similarly upheld the election law's constitutionality. That judge found the group's treasure r, Bill Ceverha, had illegally failed to report the contributions and or dered him to pay $196,660 in damages to five of the defeated Democratic candidates. DeLay, who has not been charged with wrongdoing in the case, served on th e board of the Texas group, and called or met with some of its corporate donors. He also wrote a cover letter for its fundraising brochure. Elli s still runs DeLay's federal political action committee, Americans for a Republican Majority, which served as a model for the Texas group. Staff writer Caroline Keating contributed to this report from Austin.
