From behind a desk in a small, windowless office, smack in the middle of the third floor of Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Dr. Francine Kaufman devotes her life to fighting a killer of kids.

The blame game started just after the last body bag was zipped up. Four agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and six Branch Davidians were dead. The emergency room at Providence Hospital in Waco was awash in the blood of injured ATF agents. David Koresh, still holed up in his compound, was bleeding from gunshot wounds in his right wrist and left hip.

What does Mumia Abu-Jamal have that David Koresh doesn't? From Ed Asner to Alice Walker, liberals have flocked to defend Mumia -- convicted in 1982 of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner -- criticizing the way police and prosecutors handled his case and demanding a new trial. Luminaries of the left marched, chanted and purchased full-page ads in the New York Times to appeal to state and federal authorities to provide for Mumia, who has been on Pennsylvania's death row for 18 years.

Face it, George W. Bush is going to be our next president. And you don't have to be a political genius or a mathematician to understand why. Bush was just re-elected in a landslide. As a presidential candidate, he wins all 32 of Texas' electoral college votes without breaking a sweat.

When Robert L. Waltrip's time comes, he will likely get the same treatment accorded any of his customers at Houston's Service Corporation International (SCI). Two men will pick him up, place him in a black plastic bag, lift him onto a stretcher, load him into a dark-colored vehicle, and drive him to a low-slung metal building at Thirty-Fourth Street and Ella Road -- what SCI insiders call the prep center.

(Big Spring, Texas) Cash Schriefer says he knew the bird he was fishing out of the oil waste pit in southern Oklahoma in late January was big. He thought it was a goose at first, says the United States Fish and Wildlife Service special agent. But when Mr. Schriefer finally pulled the oil-covered bird out of the abandoned waste pit, he was amazed at its size. A six-foot wingspan, massive talons, and yellow beak told Schriefer immediately that the bird was a bald eagle.
