KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- As President
Reagan's body arrives in Washington D.C.
for his state funeral, a Knoxville man who
helped establish the Reagan National
Library recalls the man and the project.
Alan Lowe is currently executive director
of UT's Howard Baker Center for Public
Policy. But from 1989 to 1992, he served
as an archivist for the Reagan Library.

Archive Architecture: Setting the Spin in Stone
By FRED A. BERNSTEIN
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.
EVERY day, a worker climbs to the roof of the Clinton Presidential Center here and hoists three sevenfoot-
high numbers onto a steel frame. The numbers tell drivers on Interstate 30, just west of the site, how
many days remain until Nov. 18, when Bill Clinton is expected to open the $175 million project that
embodies his postpresidential ambitions.
Millions of people pass by that sign every year, Skip Rutherford said. And as president of the nonprofit
William J. Clinton Foundation, which is overseeing the construction, Mr. Rutherford figures that at least
300,000 of them will want to visit the 11th, and by far most expensive, of the nation's presidential
libraries each year. The runner-up, the library built for the first President Bush in College Station, Tex.,
cost about half as much to construct.

TALLAHASSEE -- A single word in the Florida
Constitution could be enough to block Cable News

investigating a controversial list of 47,000 suspected
felons on the state voter rolls.
Attorneys for CNN and a handful of Florida media
outlets appeared before Leon County Circuit Judge
Nikki Clark on Wednesday and asked her to strike

Privacy Is Your Business
What's the payoff for CIOs becoming privacy champions? Better business, more secure IT
and a higher corporate profile.
BY SUSANNAH PATTON
IN SEPTEMBER 2002, the Department
of Defense asked JetBlue Airways to hand
over more than 5 million passenger
records. The airline, known for its
discount fares and leather seats, promptly
complied with the request, releasing
names, telephone numbers and travel
itineraries to a DoD contractor.
JetBlue's CIO at that time, Jeff Cohen,
didn't hear about the request; the DoD
went directly to the company's marketing
department, bypassing IT altogether.
Cohen discovered months later that the
airline had released passenger
information in violation of its own privacy
