"I didn't sleep at all last night," the agent said. "I'm just so damn nervous I can't tell you. . . . I have a completely double life." The agent, who fears discovery if described in detail, has reason to be anxious.

When the busload of prisoners pulled up to the county courthouse in July, James Michael Macias managed to slip out of his handcuffs--along with his scheduled arraignment--and bolt. Suspected of assault, grand theft and a parole violation, the 27-year-old ran to a nearby apartment complex and tried to wrestle the car keys from a woman as she walked into her apartment. He didn't get far. Sheriff's deputies, Ventura police and a hovering helicopter had Macias recaptured within minutes.

Los Angeles became the largest city in the nation to move to Google Inc.'s vision of online computing as the City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to outsource e-mail to a Web-based system run by the Internet search giant. Despite a flurry of lobbying by arch rival Microsoft Corp., the council agreed to shut down the city's in-house messaging system and transfer e-mail operations for its 30,000 employees to Google's nationwide network of servers. The decision could have implications for other major cities and large corporations considering whether to stay with older e-mail programs, such as Microsoft's Outlook, or to embrace the "cloud" model championed by Google.

The Senate on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to form a special commission to investigate last year's terrorist attacks, an inquiry that would compare in scale to the historic probes of the Pearl Harbor bombing and the John F. Kennedy assassination. The 90 to 8 vote, a key step in creating the panel, reflected growing sentiment that nothing less than an exhaustive examination will suffice for an event of the magnitude of the Sept. 11 attacks.
