Biden addresses supporters
DES MOINES, Iowa - Deleware Sen. Joseph Biden professed "no
rancor, no complaints" yesterday as he began shutting down his
Democratic presidential campaign.
Accompanied by his wife, Jill, and sister, Valerie, Biden flew to Iowa
to give backers a pep talk. He was scheduled to fly to New Hampshire for
a similar meeting with supporters there.
Biden also dismissed suggestions that a rival candidate leaked the
disclosures that he had plagairized parts of his campaign speeches and
misrepresented his academic record.
He described his withdrawal speech as "relatively hard to do" and. -
acknowledged having second thoughts.
"I'm a big boy," said Biden. "Every oather time in my life when I've
faced something where I've lost, I have learned a lesson from it.",
Research ship sinks in gulf
MANAMA, Bahrain - Shipping experts said Thursday that a small
research vessel exploded and sank in the northern Persian Gulf, supporting
the U.S. Navy's contention that Iran has seeded the busy waterway with
American and Kuwaiti officials meanwhile denied reports that one, and
possibly two, U.S.-escorted convoys were steaming through the gulf.
Also yesterday, Iraq's official news agency said Iraqi warplanes flew 96
combat missions into Iran during the day and that Iran had shelled the port
city of Basra, killing 12 civilians. Iran's official news agency denied the

Newblatt intends to schedule a

Rosh Hashanah is described in the
Old Testament as "the day of blow-
ing the horn" and is a time of self-
scrutiny and repentance. One part of
the ritual is the blowing of a rams
horn, or Shofar, to commemorate
Abraham's sacrifice of the ram in the
place of his son Isaac.
The sounding of the horn
throughout the service represents the
firm commitment to God's laws, re-
flection on sins and failures, and
confidence in God's pardon where
there is sincere repentance. Each part
is represented by the three different
notes of the horn, tegi'ah, shevarim,
A part of Rosh Hashanah is a
festive meal where people dip apples
into honey, eat a round raisin challah
and other sweet food to pray for a
good and sweet year to come. Some
Jews also eat fish to symbolize the
good deeds they hope will proliferate
like fish in the sea.
The ten days following Rosh
Hashanah are often referred to as the
"Ten Days of Pentinence" which

FAA approves new Detroit
Metro Airport control tower
WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration has approved
construction of a control tower costing about $9.8 million at Detroit
Metro Airport, Rep. Bob Carr of Michigan said Thursday.
Carr, an East Lansing, Mich., Democrat and member of the House
appropriations subcommittee dealing with aviation, said the control tower
was needed because of high asbestos levels in the existing tower.
Carr's subcommittee would need to approve the spending before it
goes to the full House for a vote.
At a news conference at Detroit Metro Airport in Romulus, Mich.,
Carr said he would hold hearings at the airport on Oct. 30 to investigate
"air safety, deregulation and passenger complaints."
Carr's office in Washington said the hearings were not prompted by
the Aug. 16 crash of a Northwest Airlines plane in Detroit, in which 156
Bush 'confused' by Michigan
DES MOINES, Iowa - Vice President George Bush says "the
frustration level is high" in his battle with conservatives to control the
selection of Michigan's 77 delegates, the first test of Republican
"I am so confused by Michigan and so kind of frustrated by it, because
it's such a tiny environment," Bush said.
Michigan is in the midst of a lengthy and complex process of picking
delegates to the Republican National Convention, and that process will
culminate in late January, just before Iowa's precinct caucuses Feb. 8,
Cecelia keeps breaking our
hearts, shaking confidence
Think it's rough when Mom forgets your birthday? Spare a little
(more) sympathy for Cecelia Cichan, the four-year-old - and we're
saying this for the last time - lone survivor of the Northwestern
Flight 255 crash in Detroit last month.
Headlines across the country made the injured girl famous.
Unfortunately, her name always appeared incorrectly spelled as
"Cecilia" instead of "Cecelia." Lazy journalists? No, just Grandpa's
mistake, said University Medical Center Spokesperson Michael
Harrison. After identifying Cecelia at University Hospital, and for
weeks afterward, Anthony Cichan insisted to the media that his
grandaughter spells her name "Cecilia." The girl's new guardians, an
aunt and uncle, finally corrected the mistake last week.
So don't blame the press for screwing up your scrapbook, Cece.
Except for "miracle child." That one was our fault.
