    Here’s another letter that I sent today to the Los Angeles Times: Criticizing the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United, Erwin Chemerinsky asserts that “There is no way to see this other than as the conservative justices using judicial review to advance the traditional conservative ideological agenda” (“Conservatives embrace judicial activism in campaign finance ruling,” Jan. 23). Really? Then why did both the AFL-CIO and the ACLU submit amicus briefs to the Court in support of the eventual winning outcome? Do these two organizations now embrace “the traditional conservative ideological agenda”? Seems unlikely. The better explanation for this ruling...

    ...For the Boudreaux photo, one would have to assume that Lance Cpl. Ted J. Boudreaux Jr. is pretty darned stupid to have 1) written a sign saying that he had killed the boy's dad and then impregnated his sister, 2) posed for a photo next the boy holding that sign, and 3) allowed the photo to become public. Given the disparity in the status assigned the two entries, one has to assume that the Mikkelsons believe that it is at least possible that LCpl. Boudreaux is that stupid, but that it is not at all possible that the Muslim protesters...

    Can Photos Be Trusted? The web is crawling with jokes, hoaxes and more insidious fakes. Digital-image experts aim to develop foolproof detection tools, but until then, seeing is not believing By Steve Casimiro Related Articles: Can Photos Be Trusted? WEB EXCLUSIVE Can You Tell Which Photos Are Real? Lance Corporal Ted "JOEY" Boudreaux Jr. was bored. It was the summer of 2003 in Iraq, the pause between the heavy lifting of the U.S. invasion and the turmoil of the insurgency, and you can joyride around the desert in a dusty Humvee only so often.

    The Marine Corps is reopening its investigation into a controversial photo circulating on the Internet after the reservist pictured in the image said the photo was altered from its original state. The image shows a smiling Marine Lance Cpl. Ted J. Boudreaux Jr., posing with two Iraqi boys. All three have their thumbs up and, in the version that spurred the initial Marine Corps investigation, one of the boys holds a cardboard sign that appears to read “Lcpl Boudreaux killed my Dad, th[en] he knocked up my sister!” Reserve officials began an investigation into the circumstances of the photo last...

    The Marine Corps Times ^ | April 9, 2004 | Laura Bailey
    An Islamic civil liberties group has called for a Pentagon investigation into an apparent gag photograph of a Marine in Iraq taken during the last year. In the photo, a smiling Lance Cpl. Ted J. Boudreaux Jr. is standing next to two Iraqi boys. All three have their thumbs up as one of the boys holds a cardboard sign that reads “Lcpl Boudreaux killed my Dad, th[en] he knocked up my sister!” The photo has been circulating around the Internet for at least a month. On April 2, a Muslim upset by the image e-mailed the photo to the Washington-based...

    Apparently, this sign is real: According to the Marine Times: Boudreaux is a reservist with Headquarters and Service Company, 3rd Battalion, 23rd Marines, according to Capt. Jeff Pool, a Marine Forces Reserve spokesman. The New Orleans-based infantry unit deployed to the Kut area of Iraq in May and returned home in mid-September. Pool said the command began an investigation shortly after it received the photo via e-mail several weeks ago. Investigating officers have spoken with Boudreaux and are working to determine whether the claims on the sign are true and what, if any, charges to bring against him, Pool said....
