She never paused speaking. When Secretary Clinton began her speech, Mr. McGovern remained standing silently in the audience and turned his back. Mr. McGovern, a veteran Army officer who also worked as a C.I.A. analyst for 27 years, was wearing a Veterans for Peace t-shirt."

In a column on Custom PC, one gamer points out that Westerns had the key plot elements of computer games sorted out long before the first games even appeared: the hero is good with a gun, looks mean and moody and doesn't say a lot. Then he shoots loads of baddies and when it's over, he rides off into the sunset. Given this, you'd think the Wild West and games would be a perfect match. But that's not the case. The article wonders why, when the Wild West has inpsired so many classic movies, there aren't any decent Western computer games."
