re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....
Ya, it is very strange. Yes Blago tried to blackmail the Trib. Wanted their editors fired 'cause they were writing bad things about him. In return he'd rubber stamp the sale of Cubs Wrigley Field to the state helping the cash flow. Trib turned him in.

Our rain they say is coming up from Florida, it is floating in from the East which is rare. How much was the scooter, maybe I'll buy it for my niece, her BB is this week. We have had rain everyday since Wednesday, it has been a mushy late spring. DD had to ride her electris Razor scooter in between rainstorms
Sotomayor is a feel good story. Waiting for media to dump the rest of the story as Brian might say. I heard a Senator say today since she was poor and worked hard she will be understanding and empathetic. I missing the connection, the SC is about interpreting the law not motives. Doesn't exclude her I'm not getting it as the connection. Someone is going to have to connect the dots for me. Yep, Sotamayor is the nominee, she is the one who has publically stated that appeals courts should set policy and not strictly interpret and further stated that a hispanic female with a wealth of knowledge and heritage on her side could make better decisions then a white man ever could. Interesting choice, that one. I think she is a red herring, not who he really wants-just a sacrificial lamb, if she gets rejected, the next one should get thru. I feear for our courts as they no longer strictly interpret, they write law. One look at the ninth circut proves that.
And didn't the tribune corp go to congress and ask for bailout money, isn't that the one from the blago scandal and the one that is claiming it is broke? Interesting that they would get rid of the girls.
Today the tapes/transcripts about our Junior Senator and the ex Gov brother for donations to the Gov campaign fund.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
