Sheffield For Cameron????

Are the Yankees nuts? I don't care how good Cameron's defense is. The Yanks must be getting desperate.

But Drugs are so Much Cheaper in Canada!

Yeah, well soon you won't be able to buy them.

Canada's health minister Wednesday announced he's looking into legislation that would ban the bulk export of prescription drugs to the United States and other countries.

"Canada cannot be the drugstore for the United States," Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh told reporters at a news conference.

Anyone who has a basic understanding of economics knows that drug reimportation can't work on a large scale. Canada gets cheap drugs because they negotiate prices with the drug companies. The drug companies aren't going to play along with this if a large percentage of their drugs just get shipped right back to the U.S.

Say Goodbye to Gaza

My heart breaks for the settlers who are being kicked out of their homes. It's a tragedy, but I believe it's a necessary tragedy. But then I read what's going on there right now, and I start to find myself becoming less and less sympathetic.

IDF, activists, Palestinians clash at Gaza villa

Earlier in the day, settlers threw rocks at troops when they arrived to remove them from the site. The activists also clashed with local Palestinian residents....Young activists holed up in the villa have said that, should they be removed, they will seek to displace the residents of nearby Palestinian homes.

This accomplishes nothing but to convince the world that the settlers are nothing but meshuginas, with a slight tendency towards evil.

Revenge is a Dish Best Served Sweet

Developer seeks
Souter's property

Looks to build 'Lost Liberty Hotel' at home of Supreme Court justice

A private developer contacted the local government in Supreme Court Justice David Souter's hometown in New Hampshire yesterday asking that the property of the judge – who voted in favor of a controversial decision allowing a city to take residents' homes for private development – be seized to make room for a new hotel.

That would be amazing... hope this actually goes forward.

This Land was my Land...

and now it's your land! Can anyone out there tell me why Kelo v. New London is a good, proper ruling by the Supreme Court? This case my go down in the history books alongside the Dredd Scott case as one of the worst decisions ever.

And the reason why you chose that name?

For the answer, I direct you to the very interesting blog of Falconred Goes to Law School. (A classmate of mine who was blogging anonymously and thus made up nicknames for everyone in the class).

So I mentioned to some classmates before ConLaw started today that I was shaving off my beard. I wanted to prepare them, since I shocked some people last time. And because personal grooming is the most interesting thing in my life right now besides law school. They asked why, and I told them. Then I realized who sits near me in ConLaw.

Classmate-Who-Interviewed-With-The-DA: "The ACLU? Aren't they the super-liberal ones?"
Classmate-Wearing-Yarmulka: "Yeah, ACLU - American Criminal Liberties Union. They're the ones who defended the Nazi's right to march in Jewish neighborhoods."
Classmate-Piling-On: "I don't understand what the point of the ACLU is, all they do is politicize everything."

Eeesh. I forgot I was seated with the 700 Club, and not in the Liberal Bloc as usual.

In the begining...

Not sure if anyone out there will ever read this...but I need something to keep me entertained during the slow times at my summer internship.
