1. As the economy slows and stock markets wilt, President Bush and congressional leaders have worked out a so-called stimulus package of tax rebates, stipends and investment incentives. Economists aren't sure it'll make much difference. How does it feel to you, like good news, bad news or no news?

2. Some Democratic Party officials are worried about the bickering between Hillary and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. A new Clinton radio ad accuses Obama of supporting Republican ideas, when actually Obama was just saying the Republicans were the party of ideas for a long time. Is the fight good news, bad news or no news?

3. It snowed about three inches last week in Fairfax County, Va. A high school senior called a county official at home and left him a message asking why school had not been canceled. The official's wife returned the call: "How dare you call us at home? My husband is out almost every single night of the week at meetings for snotty-nosed little brats. Get over it, kid, and go to school!" The student uploaded that message. It's all over the Internet, along with the school administrator's home phone number. Now he gets LOTS of calls at home. Is this good news, bad news or no news?
