Turns out the "Presidential Election Reform Act" (ie., the Calif. Political Consultant Full-Employment Act of 2008) that may be on the June ballot in California has another flaw, besides the fact that it would eviscerate the state's national influence in Presidential elections: it's blatantly unconstitutional. Turns out that Article I of the Constitution gives exclusive power to determine the appointment of electors to the state legislature, which the Supreme Court has repeatedly viewed as absolute (most recently, in an obscure 2000 case called Bush v. Gore).
Two things to like about Hugh Hewitt: He's a Browns fan, and he wrote this post. Prof. Chemerinsky was easily my favorite professor at USC, and his warm, student-friendly teaching style is a principal reason I didn't quit law school. He made every student in his first-year Con Law class believe what he was teaching was the most important class they were taking, and his popularity cut across ideological lines. Here's hoping the UC Board of Regents reconsiders its dunderhead decision to unhire the King of Really Bad Puns.

Complete with Go-Go Dancers !!!

The Greatest Guitar Solo Ever, according to the Times of London:


From "The Jonathan Winters Show," 1967. As I get older, I'm starting to find the contributions of his bandmates, esp. Mr. Krieger, to be of more interest than those of the Lizard King.

Rats. They announced the Creative Arts section of the Emmy Awards tonight, and my sister (and her colleagues) got robbed. As if it were that hard to recreate ancient Rome on a soundstage....
