Lockboxes, Iraqi Loot and a Trail to the Fed
By TIMOTHY L. O'BRIEN
WHEN a United States Army sergeant broke through a false wall in a small building in Baghdad
on a Friday afternoon a little over a year ago, he discovered more than three dozen sealed boxes
containing about $160 million in neatly bundled $100 bills.
Later that day, soldiers found more cash in other hideaways near the Tigris River, in an exclusive
neighborhood that elite members of Saddam Hussein's government once called home. By the end of the
evening, they had amassed 164 metal boxes, all riveted shut, that held about $650 million in
shrink-wrapped greenbacks. The cash was so heavy, and so valuable, that the Army needed a C-130
Hercules cargo plane to airlift it to a secure location.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
History holds mystery
Architect left little behind but buildings, which are
disappearing
Sunday, June 06, 2004
By Joe Smydo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Some of the buildings are gone. Others are threatened. Many are hidden in plain
view.
John Axtell is chasing the ghost of his great-uncle, the architect Frederick J.
Osterling.
Born long after Osterling's death, deprived of his records, dealt other setbacks,
Axtell and his wife, Diana Ames, are struggling to compile a complete list of the
architect's work and unravel the story of his surprising rise to prominence during
Pittsburgh's industrial heyday.

Baltimore Sun
City to delete its old e-mail
After 90 days, messages will be gone from system; Public-records questions raised; Workers will have
to find and save official material
By Laura Vozzella
Sun Staff
Originally published June 6, 2004
Memo to City Hall: You've got mail. Tons of it. And it's about to disappear.
Millions of old e-mail messages are clogging Baltimore's municipal computers, so the city is going to
start automatically deleting any messages older than 90 days.
A common practice in private business, the move raises questions when made by a municipality, which
has a responsibility to retain certain public records.

Wisconsin State Journal
How history hit the shredder
11:17 PM 6/05/04
This was a "whoops" moment on a grand scale, though the actual words used were: "We have a big
problem."
They were uttered in the morning, March 11, by a supervisor talking to his supervisor at the state
Records Center. The supervisor's supervisor "concluded that archival boxes intended for transfer to the
Historical Society were incorrectly sent to Green Bay for confidential destruction."
They were pulped into toilet paper, among other consumer products resulting from confidential
destruction.

Text messages may turn up in Bryant case
By JON SARCHE
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
DENVER -- A few hours after NBA star Kobe Bryant had sex with a Vail-area
hotel worker last summer, the woman exchanged cell phone text messages with a
former boyfriend and someone else. What's in those messages could help determine
whether the sex was consensual or whether Bryant is guilty of rape as charged.
The judge himself said the content may be "highly relevant" to the case.
That the judge could order the woman's cell phone company to produce the
messages so long after they were sent shouldn't surprise anyone, analysts say.
Texters beware. Like e-mail and Internet instant messages, text messages tend to be
saved on servers.

A sex-change recipient, whose highly sensitive medical records were published on the internet after a
hospital error, was paid $1600 and offered free counselling by the Health Department to stop her taking
legal action.
Sally Black's (not her real name) psychiatry case-management file from St Vincent's Hospital,
Darlinghurst, contained information about her history of self-harm, and the fact she was taking hormonal
medication to enable her to live as a female.

E-Mail Clogging Charm City Computers to be
Deleted
Updated: Monday, Jun. 7, 2004 - 4:56 AM
BALTIMORE (AP) - Trying to get out from under an
avalanche of millions of old e-mail messages clogging
municipal computers, Baltimore will start automatically deleting any messages older than 90 days within the next month.
City workers must sort through personal messages and spam to find any e-mails on official agency business, then
save those messages on their hard drives or on paper.

Document shredding ban urged
By Fergus Shiel
Law Reporter
June 8, 2004
People who destroy documents relevant to court cases could face criminal charges under proposals
before the State Government.
The recommendations follow controversy over the destruction of documents in the case of Melbourne
lung cancer victim Rolah McCabe, who sued British American Tobacco in 2002 for compensation for
her illness.
Crown counsel for Victoria Peter Sallmann has urged the creation of a new criminal offence covering
destruction of documents before and after the start of legal proceedings.

Better late than never!
Max Farrugia, secretary, Friends of the National Archives, Rabat.
If a rule that prohibits the use of originals is in place,
it shall be for all without distinction.
The issues raised in the editorial Time To Revamp Libraries (May 6) once
again touched on the issue of reform in the libraries and archives sector.
Without entering into the merits of the particular issues mentioned in that
editorial, we would like to highlight and comment on one particular aspect.

Inside the hoarder's brain
Distinct differences found in study of obsessive-compulsive disorder patients
07:55 PM CDT on Sunday, June 6, 2004
By KAREN PATTERSON / The Dallas Morning News
Most people know what compulsive hoarding looks like on the outside. Piles of periodicals, clothes or
other clutter are so abundant a person can hardly function.
Now, scientists have glimpsed what such hoarding looks like on the inside. Inside the brain, that is.
