4) This week's summary of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

• Costa Rica narrowly approved the Central America Free Trade Act or CAFTA, with a 51 percent majority.

• Che Guevarra's popularity, talk of socialism, Cuban doctors and Venezuelan petrodollars in Latin America has followed the so-called "Pink Tide" of leftist governments taking power from Argentina to Bolivia to Nicaragua.

• In the mid-1990s, congressional Republicans cut the federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research's modest budget by 21 percent and a number of specific, possibly unnecessary surgeries soared. Congressional Democrats are now looking to revive federal research into the effectiveness of various medical procedures.

"Between The Lines" is a half-hour syndicated radio news magazine that each week features a summary of under-reported news stories and interviews with activists and journalists who offer progressive perspectives on international, national and regional political, economic and social issues. Because "Between The Lines" is independent of all publications, media networks or political parties, we are able to bring a diversity of voices to the airwaves generally ignored or marginalized by the major media. For more information on this week's topics and to check out our text archive listing topics and guests presented in previous programs visit: www.btlonline.org
