UPDATED* BUSH in Hurricane Destruction Areas: Bush tours the Gulf Coast
today, making stops in Mobile, Biloxi, and New Orleans. In Mobile, Ala.,
the president was to get a briefing on the damage, followed by a
helicopter survey of areas along the Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana
coasts. He was to walk through hard-hit neighborhoods in Biloxi,
Mississippi. But Bush was avoiding an in-person visit to the worst areas
of New Orleans, mostly drowned in rank floodwaters and descending in
many areas into lawlessness as desperate residents await rescue or even
just food and water. Instead, the president was taking an aerial tour of
the city and making an appearance at the airport several miles from the
center of town. [, 9/2/05; AP, 9/2/05]

across the nation last month in endorsing a fatwa, or religious decree,
against acts of violence carried out in the name of religion. At this
year's four-day convention, the Indianapolis-based organization's newly
formed anti-terrorism committee will pass out brochures that illustrate
how vicious acts spurred by extremism are the "antitheses" of Islam.

Accomplishments, Challenges and the Road Ahead." Highlights include
panel discussions on the Patriot Act, Latino Muslims and women-friendly
mosques. [Chicago Sun-Times, 8/26/05]
