Weekly News Brief

I attempted to post a podcast this morning, but there's some issue with the phone lines, so here's my weekly News Brief:

100,000 antiwar protesters gathered at the National Mall in Washington on Saturday to speak out against the war in Iraq. Approximately 400 people gatheredin the same location to show their support for American troops overseas.

Hurricane Rita came and went, causing much less damage than predicted and taking very few lives. Government officials score high marks for preparedness. Some actually say they went from one extreme to the other.

In an effort to boost aid to Hurricane Katrina victims, Beach Boys front man Brian Wilson promises to personally call anyone who donates $100 or more and to match all donations of $100 or more posted from his site. Read the story here:

CEOs of Microsoft, Palm, and Verizon will hold a joint press conference Monday at 9:00 A.M. Pacific Time. It is anticipated they will announce the first ever Palm device to run the Windows Mobile operating system. You can register to view video of the conference here:

Supreme Court Chief Justice nominee John Roberts will go before the full Senate for confirmation this week. While he is expected to be confirmed by a majority, Indiana Senator Evan Bayh (D) and New York Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton (D), among others, have both announced that they will vote against JudgeRoberts.

Have a great week!
