today's news

 "[T]he ABA voted to declare that it ``opposes, as contrary to the rule of law and our constitutional system of separation of powers, the misuse of presidential signing statements by claiming the authority . . . to disregard or decline to enforce all or part of a law the president has signed, or to interpret such a law in a manner inconsistent with the clear intent of Congress."

The ABA also urged Congress to pass legislation giving courts greater jurisdiction to review signing statements in which a president asserts that some parts of a bill unconstitutionally infringe on his executive powers and need not be obeyed. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, has already filed such a bill."

Maurice Clarett, the only athlete an antitrust attorney could ever name, was arrested again, this time with guns, while wearing a bulletproof vest.  Alas, how far he has fallen from the sterile spotlight of my antitrust textbook.

All your internet searches really are being scrutinized.

I used to be an antitrust attorney, and I can name lots of athletes--does that count?

Ya know, I just downloaded the search results for a post I was working on so thanks for the link to the NY times article.

I've already found several people searches for info on eating animal feces. Yeah, Great.

I've been reading about the average users responses to what law enforcement should do about "questionable" searches done by some of the users and the majority seem to be in agreement that they should be investigated.

For internet searches.

I weep for the future.
