Note: the headline news articles were previously all listed at That page bombed and I am having to re-create it which will take time. In the meantime, here is a Wayback Machine version that was created in June 2011. It’s pretty clunky and slow and leaves out the June 2011 to December 2011 articles. The articles are still up on the web site. You can find them in your own browser history or by using the search box within my web site to find them based on key words.
