Ever since the Fab Four started playing the Cavern Club in Liverpool, certain rock acts have been linked inextricably with certain cities. It practically defies imagination to picture Lou Reed honing his downtown Manhattan hipster-poet's chops in, say, Yazoo City, Miss.or Kurt Cobain and Nirvana slouching toward grunge-dom while drenched in the sunshine of South Florida, rather than soaking in Seattle's melancholy drizzle.

WASHINGTON - President Obama will seek to cement relations with Mexico's new president, Enrique Peña Nieto, over the next two days with vows of neighborly kinship and future cooperation.

The Energy Department has been forced to delay the scheduled September opening of a radioactive waste dump in New Mexico, Energy Secretary James D. Watkins told Congress. Watkins told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Environmental Protection Agency had fallen far behind schedule in providing a legally required verification that toxic wastes at the repository would not migrate off the site. "We physically cannot get through this process until November," Watkins said, adding that, under normal procedures, it would take until next February before the EPA could hold public hearings on the waste migration issue.
