Georgia Gov. Zell Miller's plan to furlough 100,000 state employees without pay for one day in July and one in August is illegal because it was not approved by the Legislature, a state judge ruled. Miller indicated that court rejection of the cost-cutting measure means layoffs of up to 1,500 state employees rather than the 1,000 contemplated under a $600-million budget-reduction proposal to be given to the Legislature.

Gov. Zell Miller warned lawmakers Tuesday to remove the Confederate battle banner from the state flag or be scorned by future generations. He said the banner is a lingering symbol of pride in slavery. But legislative leaders said Miller's animated, sometimes impassioned speech was like Pickett's famous charge at Gettysburg--gallant but unsuccessful. The red and blue crossed-bars emblem was incorporated into the state flag in 1956 amid mounting Southern resistance to school desegregation.

Andrew Young, trailing badly in the polls against Democratic rival Lt. Gov. Zell Miller in today's runoff, made a final plea to voters in his bid to become Georgia's first black governor, saying he needed "a miracle."

Earlier this week, armchair musicologists across the nation went into overdrive when the media revealed the contents of the presidential iPod. If music does indeed make the man, as experts suggest, the First Playlist tells us that George W.
