WILLIAMSPORT -- Facing questions about illegal immigration, Social Security and the 14th Amendment, U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett held a town hall meeting in Williamsport on Monday. About 30 people, including some Bartlett staffers, were in the audience at the Community Building at Byron Memorial Park. Bartlett, R-Md., is scheduled to hold two more town hall meetings this week -- today in Cumberland and Wednesday in Frederick. The calm, respectful tone was a sharp contrast to a local health care town hall meeting a year earlier, when more than 400 people crowded into a Hagerstown Community College auditorium, some shouting at U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin.

I've got a plan for Iraq and I'll go there as well To the editor: Here's an interesting question to contemplate the next time you have some spare time. When President Bush asked for critics of his new plan in Iraq to present their own plans if they believe they could do better, would Mr. Bush actually consider a more realistic alternative strategy or was his challenge to critics disingenuous? I for one happen to enjoy a challenge, (to a certain degree) which is one of the reasons why I enlisted in the military on active duty in 1989 and I chose a career in the information technology industry.
