Ruminations of the Easily Amused for May 11 2009

11 May 2009 at 11:16:22 AM

Raining and drizzyly outside. I don't feel like going anywhere. I'm going to go later and get the audio from the Commissh meeting this morning-we stayed up late last night and watched the movie "Jean de Florette" and "Manon of the Spring" which pretty much killed my pep this morning. I love that movie, incidentally, wonderful acting, wonderful plot. And I completely understand why Gerard Depardieu is considered such a great actor.

Weekly Snark at Jessica Simpson (and my continued wondering what the fool is wrong with Tony Romo?)

Linda Sanchez Trolling Online Bill.. Sucks

Gawker Sez Elizabeth Edwards Rep Sucks

I lIKE this about possible SCOTU prospect Diane Wood.  When I lived in Ohio, I rememer seeing mezuzah's on people's doors. At first, I didn't know what they were and had to ask, but in the same way that people might choose to put crosses on their doors, why shouldn't people be able to put whatever religious symbols on their buildings? Another reason I'm glad I live in the country. I have a big and tall cat scratching post and bed on the porch that would immediately be banned in a more restrictive neighborhood.

After 8 years of war, what happens to families? Wapost

"Spare me the rah rah party line about how much the Army is doing for the soldiers once they come home," wrote one wife whose husband had suffered a traumatic brain injury. "[T]hey don't do even half of what they should to provide adequate treatment for soldiers coming back from deployment." Wrote another wife: "We are outsiders living inside an institution that doesn't want to see or hear us. . . . You don't have to wear a uniform to be wounded by these wars, but no one outside of those of us impacted seem[s] to know this."

Who didn't know at least 2 years ago that children were in prison at Abu Ghraib and being sodomized? Who?

So... a judge ruled that it's okay for cops to attach GPS trackers to your car WITHOUT A WARRANT. (Wisconsin). Please, Please appeal this. Otherwise, there will be a big market in *sweepers* to check your cars for trackers. I mean, if a cop can do it, can't anyone? Let's all spy on each other, shall we?
