  2. SCOTUS said the entire Bill of Rights is not negotiable: "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." : Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court Justice West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)
  3. OH! Piana Paxon Marion Zimmer Bradly her Daughter, Moira Greyland (fair hand with an epee) Poul Anderson George Lucas (tried to keep him out of an authors/directors/big wigs party at a sifi convention because he didn't have the proper badge. He took it in good humor that I didn't recognize him. We discussed it a bit, finally I said, OK, judging from you obviously expensive leather jacket with the Lucasfilms logo embroidered on it, you must be a "somebody" go on in."
  4. http://abc7.com/news/george-hw-bush-moved-to-icu-barbara-bush-also-hospitalized/1708018/ Updated 7 mins ago HOUSTON -- Former President George H.W. Bush was admitted to an intensive care unit on Wednesday, and his wife, Barbara, was hospitalized as a precaution, according to his spokesman. The former president was admitted to the ICU at Houston Methodist Hospital to "address an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia," family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement. McGrath said the former first lady was hospitalized as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing. "Doctors performed a procedure to protect and clear his airway that required sedation. President Bush is stable and resting comfortable in the ICU, where he will remain for observation," McGrath said in the statement. The 41st president was admitted to the hospital on Saturday for shortness of breath, McGrath said in an email to The Associated Press earlier Wednesday. McGrath said the 92-year-old was responding well to treatments.
  5. That would take all the fun out of it!
  6. After Hurricane Katrina many Amish and Mennonites spent years helping to rebuild, donating their labor.
  7. Yep. Rodgers is the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers who narrowly beat the Cowboys last weekend.
  8. Robin Williams at the Black Point Ren Faire. Rod Serling, Tenzig Norgay, Richard Leaky, Thor Heyerdahl - all as guest lecturers in a series by Palomar and Mira Costa junior colleges in the '60s and '70s. Alexi II, Patriarch of Moscow and All Rus - at Ft, Ross, CA. Well...got his blessing along with a piece of cake. A week later we saw him on TV trying to negotiate a peace between the factions as the Soviet Union fell apart.

  14. If you see this man, beware, he is very well armed. More here
  15. If he had just played it through, with only a few flourishes, it wouldn't have been bad.
  16. From the CHP " the driver had jackknifed at the top of the grade. When the driver had lost it at the top of the hill, he had broke the air lines to his rear trailer. " From the control of the tractor, I would say he had it chained. If he had managed to straighten up and get going again after jackknifing, and locking up the brakes on the trailer, he might not have had any chance to cage the brakes.
  17. I grew up was raised in N. San Diego County, been up in Sonoma Co. since about '85 (with 3 years in Lake Co.). Down south I've seen hail, rain, snow (didn't stick), in the morning, then sunny and in the low 90s mid-afternoon. That was out in the Anza-Borrego area. Up here I've seen about the same.
