4) This week's summary
of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

- The Pentagon resumes voluntary anthrax immunization program that was
banned in 2004 by a court order.
- The "non-lethal" stun gun is growing in popularity, yet some law
enforcement professionals worry about the unknown risks of the
high-powered stun guns made by Arizona-based Taser International.
- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a prospective 2008
presidential candidate has merged his operations with a powerful Texas
law firm with strong ties to the energy industry and the Bush White
House, a move that will help him raise millions of dollars for his
presidential campaign.
