Night-shining clouds are normally captured only by airplanes or the Space Station, but once in a while Mother Nature cooperates with alert photographers. After an unpleasant week, we all need a touch of beauty.
the Democrats held a national convention and nobody came? Not to worry — they can always bus down hordes of union members and ACORN.
The document is here. Here is what some good thinkers have to say. Jed Babbin points out a couple of contradictions in the court’s rather bizarre reasoning.
