Woman shown
dying. 'Satan exists
as a personal, mal-

evolent being who acts
as tempter
and accuser.' Covenant

Eyes. Came
to. Moves
money. It does so in

plain view.

Wednesday, April 28, 2004

A home close. A
final say. So. Likely
to hold. On. Issue

be put. 'Conducted
a masterclass.' 'Damaged
his faith.' Ready

to ratify
climate. On
the cards. Europe

is mocked. Rage

Tuesday, April 27, 2004

Oil giant. Savaged in
report. Unspectacular down-
fall. Silver dream machine

overstates its
reserves, admits
deceiving. City reacted

with astonishment,
with crisis-
stricken details

on its face.

Monday, April 26, 2004

Inappropriate, and
tactless, military
metaphor. And

action. And
subterfuge. U-
turn under all.

Analysis expected.
Service leader. The
change of heart

work. Freed. Coming
home. Playing

away. Why she's
glad. Shell
out. Clam up. Pope

says 'terrorism'. Not saying
more to combat. 'I want
to hit him.' Gun down. Deadline

passes. The real
threat. Personality
clash. Genetic links

between. Vets
for onslaught.

Saturday, April 24, 2004

Blankly destroys
everything. Tax the
recidivists. 'I hope I can feel

a bit
safer.' Taxi
motion. Artful

chaos. Cruise saves
Britain. More seized. British air
emergency. More remedial lessons in

the Bible.

Friday, April 23, 2004

Increasingly seen as
credible. Site
turfed. Funeral

for an ambush. 'We
have to fight, to a
safe haven.' Beloved

enemy. 'Eveything you need
to know.' Extended


Thursday, April 22, 2004

Chaos. Just
war. Loyal to
a warlord. Renewing

fears. Wrongfooting many
analysts. Won his
fight. The newest

novel. Dramatic footage
showing signs
of failure. Beware, it

says, the
spinner spurned.

Wednesday, April 21, 2004

breaks through. One
years ago. Fly

in square. 'I never thought
it would end
happily.' It has never exactly

been safe. Return
in search
for exit


Monday, April 19, 2004

Dream strike turns
secretly moved. Blue
chip. Jet set. Retreats

and buying
abroad. Extensive
interrogation. Bounce

with the new. Appear in
an advert. Folied. Can

be bought
online for
a few.

Wednesday, April 14, 2004

Three-hour gun. Perfect
spring chicken. 'They cannot fight
another community.' Gambling

that other militias will fall
into step. All the action from a memorable
weekend. A fake sense of

Hollywood history. Massaging
the tube. Must 'quicken' pace. Enters
new era of

without incident.

Tuesday, April 13, 2004

Final journey for
last relic. Plug-in city
uncoils. Crowds show their

delight. Three punters among
70,000 after a
triumph. 'I lived the

Cold War.' Free to play. Accept
that crops will never be grown
in Britain. 'I have dozens more

damaging emails.' Shoot

It can now see off its
enemies. Top tips. Gurus who claim
to 'cure'. Right-handed man

at the right
time. Tighten British
victims. Foil new bomb. A

fresh attempt. The most
gifted of his generation. Who? 'We
asked the biggest

stars.' Chairmanship and

Sunday, April 11, 2004

Piling on
pounds piles on
pressure. One-sided, dirty

war. Do a half-assed
job of sorting out
the chaos. 'I am confident I

have acted at all times.'
'She has shown a great
deal.' This (again) is the worst


Thursday, April 08, 2004

Year of paper. Whistleblower
speaks. Reigns and plunges.
Rides again through its controversial

career. Dough! Network out
of control, say MPs. A
vegetarian who doesn't drink.

A most gratifying ale.
It's our fault we have lost.
She blames 'over-zealous' staff

for waving.

Wednesday, April 07, 2004

'We will not turn back
from our effort.' 'Are you shamed
by your mistakes

in English?' Every week,
it is like
this. A much

smoother operator.
Puts damper on
flame. Strikes would not do

much good.'

Tuesday, April 06, 2004

Cut from
the same
cloth. Whispering

campaign. In her
own fashion.
Lived up

to their
reputations. Only

'an assessment
that you
may be making'.

Monday, April 05, 2004

The target was?
Minimalist apart
ments. The net

closed. Crop of
politically aware
and active

kids. Over-the-top
fees. 'Why not write
for children?' Something

of a fresh.

Saturday, April 03, 2004

5,000mph. 'More than just
a rude song.' Messy desks
'harm health'. Another enemy

of God should force
bribes. Race ends in
acrimony. Alimony. A

win. Row. 'Plunged'
yet again. 'I don't know if

the attorney general will have
the courage to do

Friday, April 02, 2004

Stupid big balloon. Watery
grave. Inquiry augers anger.
Aide in row over. Future

guide. Things get worse.
'Has it all ... the entourage,
the film ... oh, and

the voice.' His lost
years. His true
story. 'He's not likely to surround

himself with yes

Thursday, April 01, 2004

The 'motley garb
of the stricken'. Broke
rank. Figures hunt

for large house. Identified
as key
figures. Secret deal

to catch. Gets new
warning. Agrees to
overthrow mis-
