I counted 150 buses. Dov Bear counted a few dozen. How many do you count?

It’s really easy when you run unopposed.

Well less than 24 hours later, North Korea has already backed out of deal, claiming that they won’t abandon their pursuit of nuclear weapons unless the US builds then a light-water nuclear reactor.
Funny thing is, the reactor isn’t mentioned anywhere the agreement. Maybe diplomacy isn’t that useful when dealing with a crazed, paranoid regime.
It’s funny when the editors of the Times are proved wrong so quickly.

Conservatives see the ineptness of the federal government’s response to Katrina as an indictment of government in general.
I think this proves that conservatives are right.
“Hundreds of tons of British food aid shipped to America for starving Hurricane Katrina survivors is to be burned.
US red tape is stopping it from reaching hungry evacuees.
Instead tons of the badly needed Nato ration packs, the same as those eaten by British troops in Iraq, has been condemned as unfit for human consumption”.
The Times just proves, that deep down, everyone is a capitalist when it comes to their own opportunity to make money.

A Poor Excuse for a "No"
These are very weak arguments for voting “no” on an almost perfect candidate.
Does Dionne really expect Roberts to say how he would rule on specific issues? Do we really want that? Ignore for a minute the “cases and controversies” reason why Roberts was not forthcoming on specific issues. Imagine if he said that he would uphold Roe. What would happen if three years later he votes to overturn Roe? Would the ruling not count? Would it not be respected? Is he not permitted to change is mind? If he does, there’s nothing anyone could do about it.
As for the withholding of some of his writings- I’m sure Dionne understands the concept of attorney- client confidentiality. I’m not sure though that he understands how important it is, especially when it comes to the presidency. The President needs honest, straightforward legal advice, advice he is not going to get if every deputy solicitor general is nervous that what he writes may be used against him in a future confirmation hearing.
If a Democrat can’t vote for Roberts, then basically no Republican nominee is good enough.

But today’s story was different. It was funny, actually accurate (a rarity for the Times when discussing OrthoJudaism), and most importantly, could have been written about the colony where I spent 14 summers.
Yeah, the place was a hole in the ground, but that was the point- it was usually so nice outside; who wanted to be indoors? The only time you actually spent time in the bungalow was when you went to sleep. So cares if there was no room!
