[NB. Apologies for being so quiet lately. I've yet to figure out how to adjust my Roman lifestyle with my American schedule. This failure is taking its toll. Fortunately, Friday is my play day!]
Clinton appointee issues preliminary injunction against the enforcement of some portions of AZ's anti-illegal immigration law. . .and the Talking Head Consensus seems to be that this is bad for B.O. b/c it gives the impression that the feds aren't really all that interested in enforcing immigration law.
Judge's decision causes "helplessness and anarchy." Frankly, reading the decision is scary. Judge Bolton is preoccupied with the policy implications of the law and not its legal standing. She spends a great deal of time writing about how the law will "burden" law enforcement, etc. That's not her job. We hire politicians to deal with money and logistics.
Another analysis of Bolton's decision with relevant links.
Study finds that reporting on scientific research in the media has taken on an increasingly authoritarian tone since the 1980's.

Anne Rice "breaks up" with Christianity. . .not with Christ, mind you. . .but with Christianity. Ah, the fruits of a Spirit of Vatican Two religious education! Unfortunately, this latest development in the author's spiritual saga was entirely predictable. Her autobiography is chocked-full of mental reservations, doctrinal dodges, and self-authorized exemptions. Fortunately, the Spirit is hard at work and we will likely see Mrs. Rice among us again.
No, B.O. is not a Muslim. And even if he were a Muslim, he could still be an excellent American President. That he is not an excellent American President has nothing to do with his faith or lack thereof.
Cambridge student sitting exams gets his cakes and ale. . .and a little comeuppance.
