An October Surprise for the Dow?
Hall shredded some papers and carried others out in her boots and skirt. She adamantly denied a report that she hid documents in her bra.
Hall later moved to Los Angeles and married a former manager for Jim Morrison and the Doors.
Berger put documents in his coat and pants but denies using his socks.
Playing Slots at DOT
The lobbying is hot and heavy at the Department of Transportation. Seems Midwest Express, hurting financially, recently gave up a coveted slot at Reagan Washington National Airport for a daily round-trip to Des Moines.
Northwest Airlines, backed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), who has carried lots of water for the administration, and the Iowa delegation are fighting to keep the slot for Iowa. It was a state Al Gore won but only by a few thousand votes.
Delta commuter line Comair wants it for a round-trip to Jackson, Miss., a move naturally backed by Senate Rules Chairman Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and the Mississippi folks.
And Spirit Airlines is hoping to get the slot for a flight to Myrtle Beach, S.C., which has the backing of folks there.
Transportation officials say they're going to judge this not on politics but according to the specific criteria laid out under the law. A decision is expected shortly.
