 San Jose Mercury News: "Nurses increasingly help solve sexual assaults"
The piece is essentially a profile of the 15 nurses who comprise the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) at San Jose's Valley Medical Center, which handles most adult and teen sexual assault victims in Santa Clara County.
They all point to the great improvement the SART team has brought to the quality of the forensic evidence collected compared to the former system, in which physicians and nurses with little relevant training collected evidence that was often useless.
The police officer, head of the San Jose sexual assault unit, suggests that the team's importance will only grow with the increasing use of DNA evidence.

 The San Jose Mercury News April 4, 1994
This was the context of my first letter to the Mercury News on the intensive coverage of Whitewater and the non-coverage of much more blatant indications of criminal activity during the Reagan and Bush administrations.
Yet we were told in earlier Mercury News Whitewater coverage that a member of the Kansas office of the RTC responsible for SandL bailout operations in Arkansa claimed that Federal officials had refused an investigation in 1993 into Madison, the implication being that Clinton officials had stopped such an investigation.
I thought stories in the Mercury News were checked with previous stories for consistency and fairness, and that if the previous news accounts were found to be misleading or incorrect, it was mentioned in the current story.

This is good news, because it shows that the Post does understand what went wrong and is working to fix it -- and to bring reader comments back to the site, where they belong.
A little over a year ago, I left the San Jose Mercury News to pursue my passion for what we've come to call "citizen media" -- the idea that anyone with something to say could use increasingly powerful and decreasingly expensive tools to say it, potentially for a global audience.
I was trying to figure out how to make this new phenomenon pay its own way out of the gate, just as the traditional, still deep-pocketed media, super-energized entrepreneurs and legions of talented "amateurs" -- a word I use in the most positive sense here -- were starting to jump seriously into the fray.

Facing the east and San Jose's colorful Rose Garden, Bates recited a prayer along with 70 other members of San Jose's Baha'i community Wednesday, commemorating the execution of their prophet, the Bab, in 1850.
Baha'i's equate the Bab, which means ``the gate,'' with Christianity's John the Baptist, in that both prophets heralded the coming of their saviors.
On July 9, 1850, according to Baha'i followers, 750 members of an army unit carried out the orders of the Persian government and fired their muskets at Mirza `Ali-Muhammad, also known as the Bab.
