ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

oh yeah, and it's inauguration day


I mean, with stuff like this still floating around, things like this seem a little overstated: "Mr. Bush has said he intends to spend the political capital he earned in his unambiguous, if not overwhelming, victory over Senator John Kerry."

This, too, from the above NY Times article, is also a factor:
"But Chief Justice Rehnquist, who is suffering from thyroid cancer that has kept him away from the Supreme Court for weeks, is 80. The oldest justice, John Paul Stevens, is 84. So it is widely assumed that President Bush will be able to nominate at least one person for the court in his second term."

I don't know. I just don't know.

Anyway, when you're all done donating to the tsunami victims, please remember the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. They're going to need your help. Having personally been helped by Planned Parenthood, I would particularly encourage that. Even if you're in Canada..... when this shit blows, it's going to blow big.

In other news, that Stephen Harper is a real charmer, isn't he? I hope folks at home are upset about this?


And, lastly, via Neil Gaiman's blog, this article about the FCC whining about the opening of the Athens Olympics, with the particularly memorable quote from the Greek games chief:

'"As Americans surely are aware, there is great hostility in the world today to cultural domination in which a single value system created elsewhere diminishes and degrades local cultures," she said in her commentary.

'"In this context, it is astonishingly unwise for an agency of the U.S. government to engage in an investigation that could label a presentation of the Greek origins of civilisation as unfit for television viewing."'
