OK, a lot of things have been going on, but one minor detail of the whole situation that strikes me as incredibly ironic...
First up is my recent article arguing for the confirmation of Sam Alito in the UMKC student newspaper (just some crap I threw together, nothing great or original):
Examining the Merits of Alito
Then, I find out yesterday that Alito made national headlines on his first day by breaking with Roberts, Scalia, and Thomas, voting to extend the stay of execution for Michael Taylor. The whole situation seems surreal, hitting national news, not something I am used to, personally, but I'm a newcomer to the family. If you (anyone?) think of it, pray for the Harrisons.
CNN article on the case
But yeah, that's it. I'm sure I'll be back to the same old useless patter and silliness you've grown to know and love in the next post.
