What I tell all these young lawyers is to read
Harper Lee's book To Kill a Mockingbird.
Read that book once a year. Kinda get
your mind set that there is a way to get
justice, but you're going to have to
fight for it in this country.

Finally, 54-year old Glen Bruemmer died during the swim portion of yesterday's Ironman in The Woodlands. More here
McAfee said multiple people tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate Bruemmer.
Organizer Scott Langen said the event continued for the many others who had trained and prepared for months, but said a dark cloud remained over the celebrations at the finish line.
"As far as the family, our hearts go out to them, and immediately when an incident like that occurs, our shift in focus goes to that family," Langen said.
Bruemmer's cause of death has not yet been released.

Kind of reminds me of the free speech advocates that go ape-spit over speakers they disagree with.
We need more logic and less hypocrisy...

Conscience is a man's compass, and though
the needle sometimes deviates, though
one often perceives irregularities when
directing one's course by it, one must
still try to follow its direction.
