On the day after the Louisiana Legislature overrode the governor's veto and enacted the strictest anti-abortion measure in the country, a federal judge Wednesday set in motion what could be the long process toward review by the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Adrian Duplantier in New Orleans set July 23 as the trial date to test the constitutionality of the law, which bans abortions except to save a mother's life and in cases of rape or incest.

In 1984, Jesse Jackson ran for President as a protester. Now, in an effort to expand his base, he is running as a politician. Jackson's angry candidacy four years ago mainly attracted blacks who were tired of being taken for granted by the Democratic Party. This time, from the Deep South to the Midwest, Jackson is preaching a populist message to whites as well. After he speaks, he wades into their midst, grabbing hands and saying: "I need your help, I need your help."
