Friday Night Open Thread

So glad the weekend is here.

Here are some law professors supporting Prop 19 and legalization of marijuana in California. If you haven't read the ballot initiative, you can do so here.

Child soldier Omar Khadr, facing the first miltiary commissions trial under Obama's revised rules, is contemplating a plea deal. It calls for 8 more years in prison and some are objecting saying it's not long enough. Reportedly, most of the additional prison time could be served in his home country, Canada, instead of Gitmo, if both Governments agree. Canada allows parole, the U.S. does not.

On "Medium" tonight, a fictional Sheriff Joe Arpaio and so far, it seems they are going to justly roast him.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.

    a great (and affectionate) satire on Obama (called to my attention by my 24-yr-old daughter.)
