The White House said Monday the federal budget deficit is
one hundred billion less than previously thought. The Treasury is

Bill Clinton blasted anti-immigration supporters at the
National Council of La Raza convention in Los Angeles Saturday.
Thousands of Hispanics poured into Los Angeles for the convention.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Il on Sunday threatened more
missile tests. He didn't get all the attention he wanted last
