    Thank you for not killing anyone

    A good blog is a back-and-forth experience between writer and reader. When a blog reaches its apex, commentary and conversation meld together, making reader and writer one.

    Of course, sometimes, this tight of a relationship can mean a level of complacency can creep in. Things can go unsaid. Which is why today, I’d like to send out a thank you to my readers.

    Thank you, dear readers, for not killing anyone.

    Portrait of the terrorist as a young man

    The jury has been selected, and the trial begins this morning: the first prosecution of a Guantanamo detainee since Obama instituted his new, improved, Supreme Court-compliant military-commission system. Not at all like Bush's, except for every important detail.

    John McCain to offer jobs to “Kathy the Teacher” and “Steven the Flight Attendant”

    ARIZONA – In his latest Mavericky campaign maneuver, U.S. Senator John McCain has offered Alaska teacher Kathy Gustafson and former Jet Blue Flight attendant Steven Slater jobs within his campaign.

    “Anyone who will stand up to vested Washington interests like Sarah Palin is a valuable asset,” said McCain. “Karen the Teacher could teach us all something.”

    Judicial "Overreach" Since 1783

    The inevitable talking point about Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the case overturning Proposition 8, is that it's "judicial overreach." Reason snaps together the prefabricated argument here. For the last generation at least, the allegedly "conservative" position is that judges should not be allowed to "make law" or to defy the will of the voters by ensuring justice or allowing equal protection under the law.

    Alaskan V Palin

    Watch and be amazed. Citizen of Alaska goes after Palin for quitting her job to become a celebrity. Palin claims she is representing the whole United States now.

    That is all.

    Violence I Can Get Behind

    I never saw the movie Fight Club. I know many people, both men and women, who place it on their list of top movies ever. But to me, it looks stupid. I couldn't comprehend violence as an antidote to boredom and insecurity. But the women of Jezebel.com have helpfully translated the genesis into cultural language I can fully understand.

    Sweet.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I still won't see the original Fight Club. I'd rather watch Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

    Undermining Traditional Marriage (Amen!)

    A judge has overturned California’s Proposition 8 as unconstitutional, because it is, and our country has moved one more step toward making marriage a universal right. Those who want marriage rights restricted will complain that this decision “undermines traditional marriage,” and in a way they’re correct. It does. And that's a good thing.
