If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

20 Centuries Ago?

I'm listening to President Obama's press conference announcing federal judge Sonia Sotomayor as his nominee for Supreme Court Justice and he made a small gaffe, 20 decades not centuries. 

We knew what you meant to say, Mr. President.

Judge Sotomayor seems to be a reasonable choice and I wish her a speedy confirmation and a distinguished career as a high court jurist.


  1. Seriously. At first I thought he was referring to the Bible. (Ha ha)

  2. That was my first thought also but since we know that this is NOT a Christan Nation:

    ARTICLE 11

    As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,4 - as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen, - and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. Tripoli Treaty - 1796

    I decided he really meant to say decades :-)
