Links going to off-site articles may have expired. We try to keep them updated, but all too often news organizations do not maintain a comprehensive database older than a month or two; or news is later archived under new names and locations; or in the case of the New York Times the article stands a good chance of disappearing after its initial publication, only to resurface some weeks or months later. We understand the inconvenience that this sometimes poses for readers who would like to find background information or to trace a current issue's antecedent.
