Yep, a microcosm of human prison culture.

If Dewdly doesn't want women to vote, and he thinks You (Dan) and Ken are women, that means he doesn't want you to vote.

Time to get a sex change for protests' sake.

Ah yes, D.C., that garden spot.

How does the old joke go?..."You have psychopathic criminals in D.C., then you have the people who DON'T work on Capitol Hill", or something like that.

Bottom line: Miller-Young threw a temper tantrum, knocked a sign out of someone's hand because she's too immature to deal with views that oppose her own, got punished for her actions, and that should be the end of it.

Time to move on.

Meanwhile people tell me I'm wasting my vote by voting Libertarian, and with all this stuff coming to light, us freedom lovers are being vindicated.

Three Johns.

Vasi: Good point, but logic doesn't often get far in Santa Barbara.

Adams: Sorry, but you're militant anti-car rant is off point. Just because you are angry doesn't mean you're correct.

Locke: Well said.

On Attorney Darryl Genis Again Accused of Misconduct

billc,

Hess was up every night in prison moaning from a sour stomach and had medical problems with ulcers. Some believe that much of this was an attempt to avoid doing physical labor, but was likely just a gluten sensitivity.

That explains it. In Albert Speer's Spandau diaries he recalled an incident where Hess refused to drink milk and the guards were going to force-feed him until Hess finally gave in. I know that he annoyed Hitler on one occasion when he brought his own cook to one of Hitler's parties, and when Hitler asked Hess why he brought his own cook when he knew Hitler had a vegetarian chef, Hess explained "my diet has to be of a biodynamic origin". Even Hitler couldn't deal with it and had to shake his head. Meanwhile, the body count rose.

Segueing onto the next topic, it hit me the other night while driving home all the suffering we have here in the U.S. All the homeless people, people without health insurance, people in debt, Detroit is in ruins, our inner cities are war zones BUT...we keep sending money overseas to prop up dictators. $1.3 billion just for Mubarak alone in his last year of power.

Think of all the money hemorrhaging out of the U.S. that could be spent in infrastructure--meanwhile almost everything here you see is made in China.
