So here's the plan...

I don't exactly know where to start with my first substantive post. I'm currently preparing to take the LSAT on Saturday, so I don't have a whole lot of time to sit here and write about everything I wish I could.

Trust me, I have plenty to say. So I'm thinking about a list of topics that are pertinent right now. Here is what I'm currently thinking about and will get to in the coming week or so (in no particular order):
  • The "Stimulus" Bill
  • "The most transparent, open, and ethical administration," and the ever-growing list of tax cheats employed or nominated by said administration.
  • Executive salary-capping for companies receiving bailouts.
  • The merits of a good apple pie.
  • The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (a.k.a. Thank-You Gift for the Trial Lawyers)
  • The impending effort to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine," and other nefariously un-American endeavors.
That's not all I can think of but it'll keep me busy for a little while. And I'm also sure there will be new developments before I can get through all of it, so it is most definitely subject to change. I really can't wait to get started. If my brain doesn't feel like it's been turned to some sort of Sociology-lecture-induced-gelatinous-goo, I'll try to get something up on Saturday after the LSAT.

And so, I'll leave you with this most inspirational picture of our courageous leader...


  1. That picture I like. I am sure there is one of most pols like that somewhere or other. ~Mary

  2. Yeah... everybody's got their own embarrassing moments on film in some form or another. I just liked it because the irony is palpable. I give President Obama more credit than to think he's dumb enough to actually try to use a telephone like that. So it's obvious that the photo was staged for publicity purposes. But the style of the shot is such that it was surely meant to appear to be a candid photograph of the then Senator hard at work, late into the night, and looking very "Presidential." (Note that he's taking a phone call at 3a.m., so we can probably blame the Hillary Clinton ad for inspiring the photo.)

    And I also just like to spread these kinds of things around, because I know you'll never see this picture on mainstream media outlet.
