Violence returned to the abortion debate in the United States yesterday when a doctor who has long been the target of right-to-life activists was gunned down and killed in a church in Kansas where he was an usher.

Dr George Tiller, a prominent advocate for abortion rights who was wounded by a protester more than a decade ago, was shot and killed Sunday at his church in Wichita, a city official said.

While my inner grump insists that you really need to hear these tracks in the context of the original albums, where they're mixed with Wilson's own songs and other, less obvious fare, it's hard to get sniffy about this superior compilation. Her bare-wires and yearning vocal treatments of "Tupelo Honey", "Time After Time" and "Wichita Lineman" are among the best cover versions ever, and I can live with U2's "Love Is Blindness" and Sting's "Fragile" if I have to. "The Weight" doesn't work, though. Blue Light 'Til Dawn is the album to get.

If a recording of one race could be placed in a time capsule to remind future generations of just why Tony McCoy is 13-times champion, then yesterday's William Hill Trophy might just be it. After a circuit it was just not possible that his mount, Wichita Lineman, the 5-1 favourite, could win. The gelding had walked through several fences and was galloping indolently in mid-division, with his rider pushing and shoving.

The once high-flying shares of Nighthawk Energy, the US-focused oil and gas explorer and producer, have failed to respond to what can only be described as encouraging developments in some of the more remote corners of America.

Conor Oberst's decision to release an album under his birth name is at first baffling.

'Sample And Hold' is SMD's acclaimed 'Attack Decay Sustain Release' album remixed. Sucking much of the joy from the original, it's largely an excuse for the artist's mates to show off their effects buttons on vocal-starved odysseys meant for earnest men to nod their heads to.
