U.S. Supreme Court: Don't Count Missionaries
The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Utah's challenge to the 2000 Census Monday, essentially agreeing with lower court decisions that allowed the U.S. Census Bureau to leave LDS missionaries from the U.S. living abroad out of the dicennial count. The court's action leaves Utah with just one challenge to the census left in its attempt to get an additional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

California Cities Support Appeal of LDS Prayer Case
The city of Burbank is appealing a trial court ruling that an LDS prayer at one of its council meetings was unconstitutional since it mentioned "Jesus." Now 34 other California cities have joined Burbank's appeal, hoping to prove that prayers at government functions that mention Christ are constitutional.
