A rather light news day, unless you were paying attention to the New York Senate race. New York Mayor and Senate hopeful Rudy Giuliani calls it quits, citing a Cancer scare and a marriage Tsunami and leaving the Republican contenders racing to shore up the cracks. The Attorney General's Office reveals a new computer virus making the rounds, targeting Microsoft Windows Operating systems (of course). The Wen Ho Lee spy case drags on. Rumor circulates of an oral vaccine being developed for the AIDS virus and the first portion of a liver to be transplanted is hailed as a success, particularly notable since the donor came via the Internet.
