Eve Of Destruction

Sweet dreams:
US preparations for an air strike against Iran are at an advanced stage, in spite of repeated public denials by the Bush administration, according to informed sources in Washington.
This will make us look back on the Iraq war as a time of peace and tranquility.



David Kurtz at TPM links to a report on the Bush DOJ's of history of stonewalling congressional inquiries, and its present efforts to train other departments in the executive branch to do likewise. What is to be done? How about: subpoena all relevant officials and documents, and when and if they do not comply, hold them in contempt of congress and begin to subject them to fines, jail time, and/or impeachment proceedings. Checks and balances, etc etc. These things are not so complicated.

The Apotheosis Of Bergerdom

To wit:

Are you striving for a higher degree of professionalism for your fantasy sports league? Would you like an impartial and effective method for resolving disputes with other teams? Do you needa comprehensive league constitution? Or, might you be looking for that extra degree of scouting intelligence that can make all the difference during the season?

Professor Marc Edelman's "SportsJudgeâ„¢" brings an unsurpassed level of experience and expertise to the competitive world of fantasy sports. As a practicing attorney and professor trained in the legalities of professional and virtual sports, Professor Edelman has quicklybecome recognized as a leading authority and resource by
those who take their fantasy sports seriously.

There's training in "the legalities of virtual sports"? Only and Danandrich University (est. 2011).
