Former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, whose second term was marked by vehement opposition to the war in Iraq, described in his memoirs how he was suspicious of President Bush's constant references to his Christian faith. In an excerpt of his upcoming book, "Decisions: My Life in Politics," published Saturday in the German weekly Der Spiegel, Schroeder recalls the tears in his eyes as he watched television video of people jumping from the burning World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for an arrest in the case of an English bulldog stolen from a pet day care facility in northern San Diego County. A man convinced workers at Dogtopia in San Marcos that the 5-month-old dog was his, the sheriff's department said. As captured on surveillance camera, the man took the dog in his arms and disappeared. In fact, the dog, named Schroeder and purchased for $4,000, belonged to a local woman. The dog had wandered away from its home. A dog-lover found the dog and took it to Dogtopia, the sheriff's department said.

The longtime head of the book publishers' trade association is stepping down. Former Democratic Rep. Pat Schroeder of Colorado, who has served 12 years as president and chief executive of the Assn. of American Publishers, said Friday that it was time for her "to move on." She will be succeeded in April by former Rep. Tom Allen, a Democrat from Maine who served six terms before losing last year in an effort to unseat incumbent Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican. Picked in 1997 to help boost the group's profile, Schroeder, 68, has been an energetic advocate for copyright protection, clashing with Google and even with libraries over the distribution of digital texts.

Terry Schroeder, coach of the U.S. men's water polo team, announced Wednesday the 14-man roster he says he'll take to the Olympic Games in London this summer. One problem, though - Olympic water polo teams are limited to 13 players. Because of an injury to center JW Krumpholz, who suffered a concussion during pregame warmups at the FINA World League Prelims, Schroeder chose to keep an extra player on the U.S. team for next week's FINA World League Super Final in Kazakhstan. The U.S. must submit a 13-man Olympic roster by June 18 but the team can take an alternate to London.

Rep. Patricia Schroeder of Colorado tearfully bowed out of the 1988 presidential race Monday, telling stunned hometown supporters that her late start dashed all hope of capturing the Democratic nomination. "I cannot run a campaign that would let you down," she told a noon rally in Denver's Civic Park, her family flanking her beneath an arch of blue and yellow balloons in a sun-washed Greek amphitheater.

The crowd was in shock, its collective breath taken away. A national "Monday Night Football" audience was stunned. All had witnessed a grotesque injury suffered by Washington Redskin quarterback Joe Theismann. His leg not only was broken on a tackle, but horribly bent to the point where it looked as if it was about to snap off. Exit an agonizing Theismann. Enter a young Jay Schroeder to a reception of deafening silence. That 1985 game was Schroeder's first in the NFL's regular season.

Your article indicates that about 70% of the cars in Albania are stolen, mostly from Germany and Italy (May 29). Is it any wonder that the Serbs do not want to live with the Albanians in Kosovo? Would it surprise readers that the NATO countries want the Albanians to leave Western Europe and return to Yugoslavia? Maybe it has something to do with insurance rates. J.C. SCHROEDER Los Angeles

Terry Schroeder considered hanging up his coaching whistle after the Beijing Olympics. He had pulled off a near miracle in barely a year with the U.S. men, steadying a water polo team that had gone through a revolving door of coaches and was ranked ninth in the world. He instantly had their respect as a four-time Olympian and captain of back-to-back silver-medal winners in 1984 and 1988. He quickly won their loyalty with an emphasis on teamwork, which appealed to players whose careers scattered them throughout Europe.

Visiting former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on Saturday criticized Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for denying the Holocaust, saying the slaughter of 6 million Jews by Nazis was a fact. Since coming to power in 2005, Ahmadinejad has provoked international condemnation for saying the Holocaust was a "myth" and calling Israel a "tumor" in the Middle East.

Pianist Phyllis Chen worried when she asked Andre Watts, her mentor at Indiana University in Bloomington, if she could use toy pianos for one of her doctoral recitals. After all, without his permission, the department wouldn't even consider it. Watts, more used to the standard classical repertoire, found the request surprising. But he listened closely to her proposal.

It is difficult to imagine better timing for the publication of a Warren Buffett biography, and not just any biography but a nearly 900-page authorized tome. For more than five years, Alice Schroeder, a former securities analyst, spent countless hours with the Sage of Omaha, his family, friends and business associates, all of whom spoke freely, with Buffett's permission.

All three of your Oct. 5 letter writers decrying Schroeder's weeping before reporters, when she announced her withdrawal from the Democratic nomination race, branded this as a weakness making her unfit for the presidency. However, any serious Abraham Lincoln student is well aware that possibly our greatest President openly shed tears on many occasions. Even before he was President, as a lawyer, he could weep over the plight of a deserving client in desperate straits. An eyewitness of Lincoln's delivery of his immortal Gettysburg Address, John Morrow, has written that after the President rose to speak, "He was deeply affected and gazed over that great battlefield . . . he was overwhelmed with emotion and could not say a word.

Barbet Schroeder loves monsters. Especially when examined from the vantage point of their lair. Not the monsters of horror films such as "Frankenstein" and "Dracula." Schroeder's monsters are very real: Socialite Claus von Bulow in "Reversal of Fortune," or the drug-dealing teenage hit men of "Our Lady of the Assassins," or most memorably the late and unlamented Ugandan dictator and mass-murderer Idi Amin.

It was a Halloween party for the reddest Republicans in Orange County, thrown by county GOP chief Scott Baugh. Into the 2005 gathering strode Mike Schroeder, one of Orange County's most powerful and enigmatic Republican political players, cloaked as Star Wars' villain Darth Vader, black helmet and all. "After we figured out who he was, we all got a good laugh," recalled political consultant Matt Cunningham. "But I think Mike got the biggest kick of all."
