Good morning. It’s Friday, September 15, 2006, and this is your first early morning briefing.

The star of A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane Dog Chapman, his son and his colleague Tim Chapman (no relation) were arrested in Hawaii yesterday on charges of illegal detention and conspiracy in connection to Dog’s capture of a fugitive three years ago. In 2003, the three captured Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico.  Luster had fled the US while he was on trial for the rape of three women. At the time, Mexican authorities arrested Dog, his son and colleague for detaining Luster, and for not turning Luster over to them.  The three posted bail, and did not return to Mexico for their court hearing.  All three are now in a Hawaiian prison awaiting extradition to Mexico.

I’ve enjoyed reading your daily e-mail immensely over the past year.  It is a thoughtful, humorous inside look at the industry.  Extremely well written, and always insightful.  Regarding the recent posting of “E-Mails to the Editor” at the bottom of your e-mail – to me, it really brings down the overall quality.  It sours the end of what had been a pleasant reading experience.  A well-placed link for the reader to see them on your website as an option is all you need. 
Please stop adding people’s personal agendas to what is has always been classy piece of writing.
