  1. Woo hoo morning to all -- forecast says the high are going to be in the 50s and 60s for at least the next week. Maybe that will convince some spring things to pop out.

  2. Hopefully it's now spring down here in not-Canada, and hopefully poor Candis of the North is to follow shortly after. Ugh, enough already, this winter has been more brutal than being stuck in the bathroom with a magazine rack full of Scalia's argle-bargle dissents.

  3. Maybe set up a scorn-pole in front of Hobby Lobby's HQ? Or the Supreme Court? I just learned about this old Viking tradition, still practiced in Iceland, this week. That should heat things up enough to bring on spring. :-P

    Mason is demanding juice, and I have to go to the mimes today for a meeting, so onward and whatever.

    1. I like the general idea of a scorn-pole -- provided that the head on the pole is harvested from an animal already dead and not killed for pole-making purposes.

      I think the thing that has me so wound about this particular case isn't even that Hobby Lobby's position is factually wrong as well as blatantly unconstitutional, plus the ongoing horror that is Scalia (which are all legitimate reasons, and probably should constitute the basis of my anger), it's their hypocrisy that I can't take. I have a lot of tolerance, and most days, I have the patience of Kindergarten teacher, but I cannot abide a hypocrite, and this thing where people are demanding that their corporate veil operate like retracting storm shutters according to the whims of their personal beliefs is just offensively, infuriatingly dishonest on its face. "There is no corporate veil, my articles of incorporation are basically the same text as my Bible. Wait, did you just say tax due date is on the horizon? Quick men, to the sliding levers, slam shut the corporate veil!"

      If any of their churches had an ounce of integrity, they'd excommunicate these liars for even bringing the case.

    2. The issue of the corporate veil is going to be the interesting (but still horrible) part of this decision because the court's right wingers are going to have to figure out how to make this decision the way they want without setting a precedent that tears sue-your-ass size holes in that veil. Unfortunately, I'm sure they'll figure out something.

    3. I don't doubt Scalia's ability to contort himself into any position that assholery requires, but I'm holding out hope that Kennedy and Roberts join the women in a majority opinion sane enough to give Nino agita. Am I being too hopeful? ::sighs:: Lily Tomlin is right, no matter how cynical you are, you can't keep up.

  4. From what I have read, I am not holding my breath on Kennedy and Roberts. Kennedy seems to think that this is an opening to force corporations to pay for abortions which he doesn't support (though I do - everything should be covered!) As for Scalia, he just makes it up to support the decision he wants. He has no judicial integrity at all!
