    "Where in the hell was Newt when he had control of a conservative House? It was not a priority for him!!!! Why is Newt getting a pass? Congress in 2002 to 2006 could have sent an immigration bill to GW to sign that included border enforcement first with a fence, punishing employers severely and than somehow dealing with the illegals here. They did not."

    Ummm, perhaps because Newt had left office in 2002?

    "So why the desire to so publicly commit political suicide??"

    Nah, it's just because McCain just isn't that bright. In 2000, his consultants told him that he could win primaries by running against the base. Anyone who believes that ain't smart enough to put his pants on in the morning.

    In 2007, he thinks that posing on TV with Ted Kennedy will get him the nomination.

    The real question is: Who's putting McCain's pants on in the morning?

    Funny, soup was one of the things that made my IBS worse before I discovered activated carbon.

    When doctors find themselves confronting something they don't know, they just call it a "syndrome." That's not a big deal, but then the temptation is to sweep other things that may or may not be related into the same "syndrome" basket.

    Common sense would tell you that diarrhea-predominant IBS and constipation-predominant IBS might have very different causes and cures. But it's all IBS to the doctors.

    according to the NY sports pages there's bad blood between George Karl and Isaiah Thomas

    1) Isaiah fired Larry Brown
    2) George Karl is friends with Larry Brown
    3) Karl was running up the score to humiliate Thomas
    4) Thomas is on videotape warning Denver players to "stay out of the paint" 2 minutes before the flagrant foul

    Myself, I haven't watched basketball since the league changed the 3 point line and made hand-checking a foul (10 years ago) So this was the first time I was entertained by my home team in a decade. They should just brawl instead of play basketball.

    The Supreme Court sure enough approves the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence, though approval is perfunctory; they just rubber stamp whatever Congress comes up with.

    As to who asked for and paid for this, business probably had a hand in it as well as the attorneys. This seems intended to provide guidence as to how to shape a document retention & destruction policy without getting the corporation indicted for obstruction of justice, like Arthur Anderson did.

    Management sees all this crap as a cost of doing business, I'm afraid. When you spend the shareholder's money, you tend not to get outraged about expenditures.

    It's worth noting that he exempted Black Southerners from the Sherman covenants- obviously to avoid this being interpreted as a racial covenant- which the Supreme Court held as unconstitutional in the 50's.

    Also, not allowing redwood on the land partly because there is one named after Sherman and partly due to "certain environmental views shared and held by the authors." That's an attempt to get around the "touch and concern" requirement. I don't know the law in South Carolina, but in NY courts will usually strike down a negative covenant if it doesn't "touch and concern" the land.

    Some clever lawyering, there.

    The actual restrictions and conveyance, courtesy of Prof. Patrick Rohan, St. John's University School of Law:

    COVENANTS AND RESTRICTIONS CREATED AND RECORDED BY HENRYE. INGRAM

    The property described particularly in Exhibit "A", affixed hereto, and known generally as "Delta Plantation," which was conveyed on or about January 23, 1998 to Henry E. Ingram
    (Purchaser) from Cullum's Lumber Mill, Inc. (Seller), (hereafter "the Property"), shall be hereafter subject to the following covenants and/or restrictions:
    1. The property shall never be leased, sold, bequeathed, de
    vised or otherwise transferred, permanently or temporarily, to
    any person or entity that may be described as being part of the
    Yankee race. "Yankee" as used herein, shall mean any person or
    entity born or formed north of the Mason-Dixon line, or any per
    son or entity who has lived or been located for a continuous period of one (1) year above said line. In determining a "continuous period" as used herein, intermittent periods of one week or less shall not be construed as severing continuity;
    2. No person with the last name of Sherman shall ever own, lease, enter, occupy, walk upon, or hold any interest, of any nature or kind in the Property. Any person born up North whose last name may be spelled by using the letters found in the name Sherman is subject to the same restrictions and covenants as if his name were Sherman. No business entity with the name Sherman in its name, trade name, or any previous business name, shall ever acquire or maintain any interest in the Property or provide any goods or services thereon.
    3. Nothing contained herein shall be construed as active discrimination against those Southern persons of African descent. In fact, Southern persons of African descent shall not be subject to, and are expressly excluded from, the restrictions and covenants contained in paragraph two (2) above; provided that all subsequent transferors shall be so subject, as will the initial transfer of the Property from the Southern person of African descent to the subsequent transferor. Southern persons of African descent may be given permission upon written request to use, hunt, fish and/or own the Property. Any Southern person of African descent is entitled to a ten percent (10%) discount if he or she purchases the Property from Henry E. Ingram or his heirs and/or assigns.
    4. Any of the above restrictions, covenants and conditions may be waived in writing by Henry E. Ingram, his heirs or assigns; provided that, in the event that the waiver is being granted by a person other than Henry E. Ingram or his son Sterling Ashley Ingram, the written waiver requires the written approval of at least one other person, related by blood to Henry E. Ingram, who was born in a State of the Union located geographically at least 15 miles South of the State of Virginia.
    5. The covenants and restrictions discussed above in Paragraphs one (1) through four (4) are necessary to ensure that the Yankees will never again own or control large tracts of land that rightfully belong in Southern hands and under Southern dominion. They are intended to prevent Yankee ownership of property stolen or conscripted after the great war of Northern aggression after 1865 by the Yankee Carpetbaggers and Scalawags.
    6. Delta Plantation will once again be available to the true Southerners to view, camp, hunt, fish, use, enjoy and share as true.Southerners are taught from birth. Thank you Sir.
    7. No redwood lumber may be used by any person who builds any wooden structure on the property. This restriction is due in part to a certain large redwood tree in the Western United States that is named after the late coward and war criminal William T. Sherman. Additionally this restriction is due in part to certain environmental views shared and held by the authors to these restrictions.
    8. These covenants and restrictions were drafted and executed by a true Southerner, Henry E. Ingram, Jr., this 2nd day of February in the year of our God, 1998.
    HENRY E. INGRAM, JR.

    Of my own free will and choice, I do hereby in the presence of these witnesses swear to be loyal to the South.

    And he's black.

    Many people find him threatening. He works hard to prove otherwise.

    Sherman James, a social psychologist at Duke University, studies how the stress of coping for black men can damage the circulatory system and lead to chronic poor health. Black men are 20 percent more likely to die of heart disease than whites, and they have the highest rates of hypertension in the world, according to the National Medical Association.

    Congratulations. You're the first person on this thread to have the right response.

    She was sitting with a friend at Duke’s (the “divey bar”) on 19th Street off Park Avenue South,

    That's the funniest line in the article. Duke's has good southern food, but it ain't even close to divey. Hokey is the adjective I'd use. Ah yes, the dive off Park Avenue South, sure.

    State parties are private organizations. They should, and can bar anyone they want to.

    The flip side of that is that in the NY State Republican Party, one man decides who runs for any office in the state. None of them try to win, but as long as the Republican Party comes in second, the leadership has some jobs to dole out.

    RINO heaven.

    It's a small price to pay for the privlige(sp) of excluding Nazis.

    I confess, I heard of those terms from Katrina refugee students.
    The phrase "except for Louisiana" gets repeated a lot during 1L in the other 49 states. :)

    A guy from the Institute for Justice (libertarian legal advocacy group) spoke at our school yesterday. Did you know Louisiana has a florist's exam (that functions as a barrier to entry for new florists) and that a greater percentage of people fail that exam than the Louisiana bar exam?

    When he told us about his client that lost her florist job, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
