This is freaking me out. Souter didn't own a cell-phone, answering, machine or television. He may have not needed music, and none may be appropriate. When Souter was in his natural New Hampshire habitat he would go to sleep to the crickets and owls, and the bluebirds would pull back his covers in the morning.

So "Grantchester Meadows" or the Heron album, the duo (not Mike), which was recorded with ambient songbirds by leaving the windows open.

Incidentally, WTF

Scalia's band could do covers of their songs, though.

for example:
"Women: Nature's Punching Bag"
"Sweatshops Are Cool"
"Dictators Are Cool"
"Deadbeat Dads Are Cool"
"Being Ignorant Is Awesome"
"Laughing While Leonard Peltier Gets Raped in Prison"
"I Got An Office Job For The Sole Purpose Of Sexually Harrassing Women"

|| I have bragged to my law-student brother that I am in casual contact with the finest legal minds to which God has granted such free time. He, unsure and in a frenzy of post final anxiety, asked me this:

Joe bought a used refrigerator from Fred by giving Fred a promissory note for $750. Fred then gave the note to Jim as a gift for his birthday. Joe discovers the refrigerator is a piece of junk and refuses to pay. Does Jim qualify as a holder in due course?

Can you help a brother out?

I'd have to look it up, but I don't think so -- IIRC, a holder in due course has to take in good faith, which Jim has, and for consideration, which he didn't. But the last time I looked at this issue was January 2004-- I may have forgotten completely.

How deeply is the NYT captured by the right? When I went to their front page 3 minutes ago and saw a pic of Kemp with a blurb about his legacy of "calling for steep tax cuts," I simply assumed it was a laudatory Sunday piece about this giant among us.

Well, he did play for the Bills, he did represent Buffalo in NYS. And essentially he had no absolutely no impact except as a carrier of the Laffer virus.

Which right? The neo-Confederate Southern Baptist right? The Sagebrush going-to-live-in-the-trees-with-my-guns right? The hillbilly don't-like-them-Muslins right? None of those.

Now, the rich-people-are-really-important-and-deserve-a-break-from-bureaucratic-oppression right, the NYT is totally up those guy's asses. Those guys actually pay money for the NYT.

This is worth applauding:

Mr. Kemp was a founder and president of the A.F.L. Players Association. In January 1965, he supported a boycott of an all-star game in New Orleans by the league's black players after they had been barred from nightclubs and cabs in the city. Mr. Kemp helped get the game moved to Houston, where the black players participated.

And this is just amusing:

Mr. Kemp's final turn on the national stage came as Mr. Dole's vice-presidential candidate in 1996. It was a surprising choice. The two men differed on economic policy: Mr. Dole advocated balanced budgets; Mr. Kemp wanted tax cuts and did not worry about deficits. They also disliked each other. In one exchange, in 1985, Mr. Dole said, "Kemp wants a business deduction for hair spray." Mr. Kemp retorted: "In a recent fire, Bob Dole's library burned down. Both books were lost. And he hadn't even finished coloring one of them."

I was surprised about Kemp as I had thought of him as on the young side for politicians. Turns out he was over 60 in 1996 - so I guess it was the contrast with Dole.
