And sometimes, my esteemed and faithful readers, the system works:
The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that Bush overstepped
his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay
The ruling, a strong rebuke to the administration and
its aggressive anti-terror policies, was written by Justice , who said the proposed trials were illegal under U.S.
law and international Geneva conventions. John

Next time you watch the Tony Snow Show - that is, the White House Press
Briefing - notice the White House emblem behind him. Tony's head perfectly
obscures the "hite" in White, so that 99.5 percent of the time the
inscription says, The W House.
It was a brilliant move, really: goose up the national fear level by
adding young, impoverished, black men into the terrorist profile. The arrest of
the Miami Seven did exactly that.
The men were in a religious group called the Seas of
David that appeared to mix Christian and Muslim beliefs. The group wore uniforms
bearing a Star of David and met for prayer, Bible and martial arts. And, they
talked about blowing stuff up.
It's easy to go into a ghetto and find people who dream
of irrational acts against those they see as their oppressors. The likelihood of
these guys actually committing their grandiose plans were about the same as them
getting a decent paying job.
Nothing scares middle and upper class white people like
angry, young black men. The fear level continues to rise.

the weather gets nicer, my posts will no doubt become more infrequent. I've been
exploring the multitude of awesome bike trail accessible from downtown Spokane
and will be sharing - via video and verbiage - my experiences.
Yesterday I went to a local bike shop to buy a helmet (don't
even get me started on this ridiculous law). Wanting to avoid the pointy, space
age-looking, rocket man head set, I asked the guy behind the counter for
something that I could use for "biking, rock climbing, or a WT0 riot."
He didn't bat an eye, and returned with a super
