Tuesday, December 06, 2011Let the record reflect ...
This is the first thing I have posted in a long time. I am posting because, in the archives of this blog, I advocated against the confirmation of Bill Pryor to the Eleventh Circuit. I, wrongly, would never have expected that he would join this opinion, holding that employment discrimination against a transgendered person is unconstitutional. I am not in the business of blogging anymore, and won't formulate or offer a thorough opinion on his record overall, but insofar as I would have bet dollars to donuts against this, I was wrong.

If there is anybody out there who still reads this damn thing, this is to let you know that Rubber City Review is the best blog in the world right now. Mostly about music, from the family that brought you the Black Keys, Robert Quine, and WVO Quine too.

Tuesday, May 05, 2009Positive thoughts on a dreary day
1. The President went out for a burger at the burger place (Ray's Hell Burger) that most of the local food-obsessives love. I think it's great to have a President who apparently enjoys being out in public in the City, in situations that are as nearly normal as possible given the necessary non-normalness of his life.
2. It is good that we are now in a time where it is even possible to imagine that Pam Karlan is on the list of high-profile suspects for a Supreme Court nomination.
3. My son is very very very happy that I got him the new Percy Jackson book that came out today.

if I should start blogging again, but only about things that make me happy and not about things that make me grumpy.
