Weekend Open Thread
Round the Blogosphere today:
- Avedon Carol at Sideshow on why she's lukewarm to a draft Gore bid for 2008. Me too. I also don't think there's a chance it would happen. If Hillary isn't unstoppable, it goes to Obama (even though I wish it would go to Edwards in that event.)
- Call Your Senators On FISA. I support The "FISA Modernization Bill of 2007 (H.R. 3782)", introduced by Rush Holt, not the Democrats' RESTORE Act. FISA should not ignore the Constitution and in particular, the Fourth Amendment.
The ACLU, while it prefers the FISA Modernization Bill, says it has turned its attention to fixing the RESTORE Act since the Modernization bill has not been scheduled for a hearing.
Please, call your representative right now. Tell him or her to only pass a FISA modernization bill that has individualized warrants for people in the United States and NOT to provide telecom companies with immunity for breaking the law.
- Libby at The NewsHoggers on why the Dutch ban on mushrooms is a bad idea.
