Been lax this month

Enjoy photos of Brighton from last Fall and Carcassonne from this Spring.

Rumors that Jeff Ladd was finishing a cloister were decisively disproven.

Friday cat blogging

Featuring a pair I saw in Ireland. Apparently cats in Ireland photosynthesize and grow in planters. Who knew?!

Hey, Blogger!

OK, this is getting tiresome. Sure I'm in France, but this is an English-language blog. Language choice should be permanent per blog and not vary depending on the IP address of the computer making the connection.

Stupid Republicans

Clearly the Clintons are hypocrites, says the White House. Bush, after all, has only commuted one sentence, while Bill Clinton issued hundreds of pardons!

Quick talking point for people momentarily floored by the 200:1 ratio: NONE OF CLINTON'S PARDONS WAS IN SELF-DEFENSE!

None would even remotely qualify as "obstruction of justice". And yet that's what the Libby commutation is.

The Republicans serve as a good argument for mandatory class mobility. Let's have a restoration of the estate tax, at a higher level. And no more private schools. Public schools for everybody! Then we'll see how good they are.
