CARDS IN THE NEWS - April 10, 2005

Our new daily feature continues

Editor's note: Ray and I are pleased to welcome UConnCard, a.k.a. Leonda Markee to The Birdhouse, bringing her daily report of links to articles, video clips and all the news about the Cardinals organization from every corner of the web. Now, there's one more reason to make The Birdhouse your primary source for Cardinals news 365 days a year.

Note that some of these sites require reader email registration. An alternative is to use BugMeNot, for which the link is also provided. - Brian
