Getting Better ...

Quick Thoughts
* TJ=2, FLU(?)=1 ... I am pulling ahead ('Tylenol Cold', and its non-drowsy counterpart, each get an assist)
* My brother-in-law did indeed make it home, safe & sound last night. Check yesterday's post for the mushy stuff.
* Interesting - History Channel's "High Hitler" (TiVo'd from the other night) says Hitler was on Meth, Strychnine, Nightshade and that he had Cerebral Palsy and very likely had Syphilis as well ... fun!


News
* Iraq : Death Toll hits 1500 ... everyone should take a moment today, and every day, to thank God for all of these brave men (and women) and to pray for their safe return. Also pray that Iraq is able to form a stable, democratically elected government.
* More SCOTUS fallout ... "The authority of Supreme Court justices derives from the authority of the Constitution: once they deny its authority, they deny their own" ... "they invoke a living Constitution, but that just means the real Constitution lies dead at their feet" ... "What Anthony Kennedy calls cultural evolution looks more like regression -- a return to the tyrannies of Enlightenment Europe" ... and more SCOTUS fallout ... the Constitution vs the World ... and more SCOTUS fallout ... "International Mob Rule 1 - Constitution 0" ... and more SCOTUS fallout here
* Indonesia : In a travesty of Justice Abu Bakar Bashir, a key regional terror leader linked to the killing of 202 people, gets only 30 months in prison
* 27 illegal immigrant sex offenders being deported ... a step in the right direction
