In the beginning, the superconducting super collider was a 4 1/2-pound blue book that cost $60 million to produce. For physicists, that 712-page proposal was a riveting text that envisioned a machine to reveal the origin of matter. Among the small-town politicians and congressmen who saw in its dry technical specifications a more earthly promise of 15,000 local jobs, it became an instant bestseller.

The financial landscape of today's Texas, littered with unoccupied office towers, fire-sale condos and cratered shopping centers, has at least one bright side. Sign-making. The business is booming. It seems that when each ailing bank and thrift goes under, only to be merged or restructured or acquired, it needs a new sign.

"He didn't seem surprised to see us," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Doris Ramos, who arrested Marshall last week at his southwest Houston home.

Contrary to claims by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the Lone Star State isn't stealing California's jobs, workers or prosperity, according to a UCLA study.

Perry, for instance, has boasted about "hunting trips" to California to recruit companies from the state. Texas is one of many Western states trying to capitalize on the perception that California is a difficult place for business.
