A bounded Kolmogorov-Loveland selection rule is an adaptive strategy for recursively selecting a subsequence of an infinite binary sequence; such a subsequence may be interpreted as the query sequence of a time-bounded Turing machine. In this paper we show that if A is an algorithmically random sequence, A_0 is selected from A via a bounded Kolmogorov-Loveland selection rule, and A_1 denotes the sequence of nonselected bits of A, then A_1 is independent of A_0; that is, A_1 is algorithmically
