"Suzanne Detwiler was pleading for help from a Bucks County 911 dispatcher yesterday morning when a blast from her husband's shotgun ripped through her back, police said."

"Witnessing the murder, the couple's 15-year-old son - who, moments earlier, had begged his father to leave his mother alone - loaded a 12-gauge shotgun."

"'Get away from my mother,' he screamed from the top of a raised deck as his father, Andrew Detwiler, bent over the bloody body of his 40-year-old wife in the backyard below. When the father raised his 20-gauge shotgun again, the son fired, said Bucks County District Attorney Diane E. Gibbons."

"Just recently the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to expand the powers of the FBI 'to subpoena records without the approval of a judge or grand jury in terrorism investigations under Patriot Act revisions approved Tuesday [June 7].' ...It is the Patriot Act's expansion of federal police power that should be of concern to every freedom-loving citizen in this country!"

"America's Founding Fathers placed the Bill of Rights into our Constitution to insure that the rights of liberties of our citizens would not be abridged by the insatiable desire of the federal government for limitless power. The Patriot Act is a modern-day justification of the founders' wisdom, because abridging liberty is exactly what it does."

"Gail Chatfield ("Putting the fun back in fund-raising," June 6) dismissed a school's rifle raffle fund-raiser in Lampasas, Texas, as just a quaint custom of the unenlightened country folk in out-of-the-way rural communities.

Don't be surprised if the third candidate, renegade Republican Sen. Russ Potts, who lags in the single digits in the polls and spends most of his time attacking Mr. Kilgore, drops out of the race and endorses Mr. Kaine."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
