There is a security flaw in news_admin that allows anyone with access to
news_admin to use the add/edit news functions.  They just need to know
what the link is.  At the moment i am working on a spec to redo
news_admin.  I think the current version has many problems.  

The new version *may* have the following functions:
* Seperate site_news/news_admin modules
* Category based acls
* News writer and news publisher roles
  - anyone can add news ... but it is only viewable once published
* Ability to link news to sitemgr cats
* Teaser text
* Ability to manually edit creation date

Thats about it i think.
