From Slashdot:


President Bush has issued an executive order whose effect is to undo the previous Kelo decision of the Supreme Court. From the article: 'It is the policy of the United States to protect the rights of Americans to their private property, including by limiting the taking of private property by the Federal Government to situations in which the taking is for public use, with just compensation, and for the purpose of benefiting the general public and not merely for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken.' The downside is that what was once affirmed consitutionally is now affirmed only in federal law."


I'm glad I voted for that guy.

BRA: 3 - GHA: 0

If Ghana's forwards had been a little more accurate, they might have one -- score not withstanding. If my networks were as porous as Brasil's defense, I'd be laying bricks right now.

ARG: 2 - MEX: 1 (ot)

It took 107 minutes to finish this game, I wish it had been on ABC, but they thought shoiwing the third round of some golf tournament that nobody ever heard of would be better, and Univision wasn't coming in.
No, I don't have cable.
