Well, that's assuming you have a computer, and since you're reading this now, that's probably a safe assumption.

It was 1943, the United States was at war, and the first Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration opened on Broadway, where it went on to make theatrical history. The show was ''Oklahoma!'' and was said to be one of the first musicals whose songs carried the plot forward.Whether or not the claim was valid hardly mattered. What did matter was that ''Oklahoma!'' with its immediately memorable score, was just what audiences needed, those who wanted to forget about the war for a few hours.The Burn Brae Dinner Theater is currently doing the musical, and if you want to see what the shouting was about, get over there.

WASHINGTON - Iraq's majority Shiite Muslims, victims of oppression and betrayal, are waiting in wary passivity for American and British forces to topple Saddam Hussein, but there are signs they might eventually take up arms against their would-be liberators. Representing 60 percent of Iraqis, Shiites have long been shut out of political power by Iraq's Sunni elite and repeatedly brutalized since Hussein seized power in 1979. Most are quietly eager for his regime to be destroyed, exiles say. But they remain bitter that the West refused to back their uprising against Hussein after the 1991 Persian Gulf war when then-President George Bush encouraged them to rebel, and they share a widespread Iraqi distrust of occupying powers.
