Bush seeks $50bn hurricane relief - Arnie prefers Bush

President Bush is to ask Congress for more than $50bn (£27bn) in extra emergency funding to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The money - on top of $10bn that has already been granted - is slated for rescue efforts, clean drinking water, and public health needs.

$2bn for Bush, $1bn for New Orleans, $2bn for Bush, $1bn for New Orleans, ...

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed he will veto a bill endorsing gay marriages.

State legislators voted on Tuesday to allow same-sex marriage in California, but the governor said the decision flew in the face of public opinion.

Five years ago Californians backed a proposition opposing the recognition of gay marriages in other states.

"We cannot have a system where the people vote and the legislature derails that vote," said the governor's office.

"Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto," said Mr Schwarzenegger's press secretary, Margita Thompson.

Quite right, too.
