Gorelick Must Resign. I don't have a problem with the partisanship of the bipartisan 9-11 commission. I think that sharp questioning from people who obviously have an axe to grind can be beneficial. I disagree with tactics like Ben-
asking two questions and then telling the witness to only answer one or Kerrey's disingenuous "speechifying." For the most part, Jamie S. Gorelick, former Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration has not resorted to these obnoxious tactics.

Nevertheless, as has been made clear, Gorelick was the architect of the policy that neutered the proactive policy of preventing terrorism and should be sitting on the other side of the table. [See here for the Gorelick memo (.pdf) implementing this bizzare wall of blindness.]

The NYTimes was all over Scalia about a potential possible conflict-of-interest, I wonder when they will start questioning Gorelick about this very real conflict-of-interest.

If Gorelick has any integrity remaining, she will step down now.
National Pastime. The NFL schedules are out. My Raiders had an easy schedule last year and proved pathetic. The 2004 schedule is more difficult with winter games in Denver and KC (two games against the Chefs 20 days apart -- the last being at 5:00 pm on Christmas day -- you're a mean one, Mr. Grinch). The highlight will be the return of Chucky and gang on Sept. 26.

Baseball can not be considered the national pastime until the national capital has a team. [BTW, nice article on team names.]

Different. Here's an article on the home of a co-worker and good friend of mine. As you can probably tell, David and I are so different that we make Oscar and Felix look like identical twins. Nevertheless, we are good friends and David is someone I admire.
