So I'm busting my hump

(whatever a hump is. Not sure I want to look it up) to get 5 or 6 posts a week up and discover that all around me people are working half days, taking whole weeks off...

oops. Shouldn't mix this up with the day job. Anyhow, the point is that we have now officially reached the point where our most solemn institution can't even pretend to care:

“And do you really expect the court to do that? Or do you expect us to — to give this function to our law clerks? Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?"

Taking a swipe at the court’s textualists, Justice Elena Kagan said the court could dispense with the legislative history and “look at the text that’s actually given us.”

“For some people, we look only at the text,” she said. “It should be easy for Justice Scalia's clerks.”

“I don't care whether it's easy for my clerks,” Scalia said to laughs. “I care whether it's easy for me.”

To which the only appropriate response would have been : Vaffanculo.

But I guess they didn't want to wake up somebody.

Yes, I know that wasn't taken in court. Why do you think they don't allow cameras in court?

Anyhow, I have a plan. Nominate a new justice. So what if there's no openings? The Senate won't confirm anyone even where there are openings.

And she looks great in black.

Countdown to April 17 starts now.

This not-blogging is great. My house is clean and I have time to do all my work. I am also less irritable and I get out more. I saw an art exhibit that was nothing but many large black squares. It was supposed to be about the process and not the product. I was reminded of McArdle.

It was a warm-up. K-Lo needs to go to confession, the minx.
