MORE REASONS TO BE PARANOID

Little Rock correspondent Peggy Harris recently reported that Star Wars-type satellite images helped the U.S. Attorney s office win close to $300,000 in a case against a trio of Arkansas farmers. The farmers falsely claimed their crops had been destroyed by cold weather, but data gathered by satellites proved that the fields had never been planted. Similar Star Trek-type technology may help jealous girlfriends find out if their boyfriends are cheating and help feuding families determine who didn t fill the ice tray.
