WASHINGTON -- Senate Democrats failed yesterday to overcome a threatened Republican filibuster of a bill that would loosen the restrictions on the length of time in which workers could file pay discrimination claims against their employers. The 56-42 vote was split largely along party lines. Six Republicans joined all but one of the Democrats and independents in attempting to block the filibuster, which required 60 votes for success. Two Republicans, including presumptive presidential nominee John McCain of Arizona, did not vote.

It was the third time the case has been dismissed. District Judge Alexander Harvey II ruled that the workers were not entitled to seek further information about what chemicals they were exposed to, despite an appeals court's ruling that the workers deserved a chance to discover new evidence.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - In the waters off Fort Lauderdale, just past the second reef, lies a bizarre graveyard of discarded tires. An estimated 2 million of them are scattered over 35 acres of ocean floor, dumped there in the early 1970s in an attempt to create an artificial reef. The reef of tires turned out to be a spectacular failure. Few marine creatures made their homes among the steel-belted radials. And the nylon bands that held bundled tires together broke, allowing the tires to break free, ride the currents and slam into the natural coral reefs.
