Phelps makes no apologies for his strong rhetoric and
tactics, which included picketing at the funeral of college
student Matthew Shepard after he was beaten to death in a
hate-crime in 1999.
"Dying time is truth time - if people ever do think about
such matters, it's dying time," Phelps said.
Last night's airing of the a made-for-ielevision movie on
MTV about Shepard also angere1 Phelps, and he plans to
protest outside MTV studios in New York later this month.
He expects to incense people who do not agree with him,
and that at a recent protest someone drove a car at some of
his followers.
"Almost every (protest) results in some kind of violence
or criminal arrests," he said.
Phelps plans specifically to protest LGBT's "Kiss-in" on

Bush White Houcs. as adviser and special consultant
for communications.
Tutwiler, a close associate of former Secretary of
State James A. Baker Ill, will serve as an unpaid con-
sultant for 90 days to adv\ise the new administration on
communications planning and strategy, a transition
announcement said.
Fleischer did not rule out an announcement by Bush
before he returns to Texas today on a replacement for
Chavez, or names for several other top posts yet to be
filled, including that of U.N. ambassador, U.S. trade
representative and CIA director.
On the labor post, Fleischer said, "In some sense, we
are back to square one. But, in another sense, there are
a lot of people that he knows, knows well and is look-
ing at-a number of people."
Bush aides said he may take his time making a
decision, concerned that announcing a replacement
for Chavez too soon would open him to criticism that
he was rushing the review process that failed him in
her case.
It was not known whether other candidates were
being interviewed, though Bush's pattern has been to
interview only his top candidate as a last step toward
nominating the person.
Anderson, who had met with Bush previously, is
best known for her work on welfare reform. She
served under Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson,
Bush's pick to head the Department of Health and
Human Services.

WASHINGT ON - Because lie's only in his 50s, President Clinton could
receive the biggest federal pension in history --- an estimated S7.29 million dur-
ing his lifetime, according to a tax policy group that believes presidents getotoo
sweet a deal after they leave office.
The National Taxpayers Union estimated Clinton's lifetime pension pa t
based on an insurance actuarial formula that predicts that someone of his e,
health and profession should live to the age of 82.
His first year out of office, Clinton's pension check will total S161,200, the tax
policy group said in a report scheduled for release Thursday. Clinton earns
S200,000 a year as president. Congress voted last year to double that salary wpn
the next president takes office, so George W Bush will receive 5400,000 a year..
If Bush, now 54, serves four years, his projected lifetime pension payout
would be S6.6 million. The estimate is lower than that for Clinton because Bush
would be older when he leaves office. The taxpayers' group did not estimate
what Bush's pension would be if he serves two terms.
Even though Vice President Al Gore lost to Bush, lie, too, will receive a hefty
pension - 55.96 million if he lives to the age of 81, the taxpayers' group
mated. His first year on the pension plan, his check will be S94,800. G e
receives a pension under the congressional pension plan based on his eight years
as vice president and 16 years in Congress.
