…unless you think   Cesar  Chavez is  a fitting graphic for this Holy Day.   Much more to my liking is Andrew Malcolm  charming tale  of his attempt to explain the Easter bunny and its eggs to brand new Vietnamese immigrants in the Vietnam era.

And for those of you who didn’t make it to worship today,  a truly beautiful   music video.

Revenge of the spammers…

leave a comment »

A denial of service attack is  slowing the internet,  and probably will for a while yet.   What I’m curious about is that if you’re angry about being named as a spammer,  why would you deny it and then flood the internet with… spam?

This article  offers a more layman-friendly explanation of the entire affair.

SCOTUS watching…

NRO’s  Bench Memos  is the best place to go for updates on the gay marriage issues currently before it.

Politico also has a good piece up  on it here.   Jason Lee Steorts has an interesting  reminder about legal standards and public standards.

Sponsor patches…

leave a comment »

It will probably fail to reach the required 100,000 signatures,  but  this petition  to have Congress critters wear patches indicating their big donors,  similar to the patches worn by NASCAR drivers,  is too good not to sign.   I tend to use these White House petitions as a form of protest,  so do your part and join in!
