hTesting the radio tags

ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y. -- Security officials gathered Monday at a Canadian border crossing to mark the first test of a radio frequency identification system to be used by foreign visitors. German citizen Remko Ahrens, 28, above right, filled out a form with the help of Kevin Ramsey, an officer with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Pacific Highway crossing in Blaine, Washington. If successful, radio "tags" carried by travelers will be part of the standard registration process for those entering the United States. The technology is like that used to speed passage at toll booths on many highways, said P.T. Wright, the operations director for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's US-VISIT Program.

2 Jackson jurors say they regret votes to acquit

LOS ANGELES -- Two of the jurors who voted to acquit singer Michael Jackson of child molestation and other charges say they regret their decisions. Jurors Eleanor Cook and Ray Hultman, who both have pending book deals, said in a televised interview Monday night that they believed the singer's young accuser was sexually assaulted. "No doubt in my mind whatsoever, that boy was molested, and I also think he enjoyed to some degree being Michael Jackson's toy," Cook said on MSNBC's "Rita Cosby: Live and Direct."

Mother faces charge over girl's piercing infection

BOSTON -- A 13-year-old was in critical condition and her mother faced criminal charges Monday for failing to get medical help after the girl's attempt to pierce her own belly button caused a severe infection lasting weeks. By the time Deborah Robinson's daughter was taken to the hospital last week, the former middle school track runner weighed about 75 pounds and was near death, authorities said. On Monday, two days after being arrested, Robinson, 38, was ordered to undergo evaluation by a psychiatrist to determine whether she's fit to stand trial.
