We Choose The Moon!
Isn't everybody tired of the law already?
Watching the Sotomayor confirmation hearings have left me with a major case of the law blahs.
It's like watching an intelligent woman have to repeatedly explain basic legal concepts to complete idiots, over and over and over again.
Precedent, "settled law," legal realism, it's obvious no one is interested in her answers so why don't these pompous windbags cut her loose already and put her on the bench?
I enjoyed Michael Mayo's column on Sotomayor's mother, and their preparations for Noche Buena every year in Margate. Finally a fresh angle on this dead story.
What else -- the 11th Circuit explains that when the government offers you GoLytley at the airport, it's probably not a good thing.
Hey -- our own Billy Shields won an award from the Florida Bar.
Finally, today is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch to the moon.
What better way to celebrate than love scenes between Diane Lane and the "blouse man," Viggo Mortenson?
