I've got miles to go before I blog...here's a space for you.

Al-Arian, 47, remains in jail, where he has been since his 2003 indictment, while prosecutors decide whether to retry him on the deadlocked charges.
Officials said there is no timetable for a decision.
"That's something we're currently evaluating whether a retrial is appropriate," Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Thursday in Washington. "These are very, very difficult cases, and obviously we're disappointed in what happened in Tampa. We believed this was a good case to bring."
The suit filed in Gwinnett Superior Court last Friday also claims the school invaded Jessica's privacy by airing details of her personal life and outing her to the community, even though her conduct was "private, protected behavior..."
"The school is trying to make a contract out of Biblical beliefs," said David Clark, the Bradleys' attorney. "It will come down to the court deciding if same-sex kissing is immoral."
The suit claims that Jessica was expelled after school officials questioned her and other students about her kissing a girl at a sleepover and her relationship with another female student "off-campus and in private."
Since when does any school, private or public, figure that it has any right, moral or otherwise, to stick it's nose into a students private life?

Re: my 2:58 post, I should clarify that the cop Mayes shot was not "waving a gun around", he was unarmed.
He was unarmed serving a warrant??? What an idiot.
What it is really about is money. ‘Big Business’ is increasingly nosing into your business, trying to cut the costs of their business. And the easiest targets are smokers.
Really obese people, whose healthcare is among the costliest, are protected by federal law. But thousands of companies and countless municipal governments and police departments refuse to hire smokers, and some require affidavits, and even use lie detector tests to enforce the policy.
If we could limit this to nicotine use I'd be cheering it on, but it won't be. I think we all know that.
And the next step will be what you can read... don't want to raise your blood pressure with unapproved thoughts... listen to ... R&R damages the ears...can't go hunting because you might shoot yourself...etc., etc.
Is the possibility of some dope getting flushed down the toilet really worth risking the life of all involved?
It's just a bag of dope.
