Cooler than you

(no subject)

A lot of things have happened in the past year, and I've been constantly reflecting. Life has changed, so I'm making some changes as well. I've made a number of cuts, and this post is to let you know and to let you know why - that it's not personal - that some things just don't fit anymore.

I expect that I'll be making more changes, but this is it for right now.

This isn't meant to be dramarific - I have no delusions that anyone is going to be upset over the loss of my not posting. I just wanted to let people know.

It's been a really long time (years, actually) since I've pimped these, and for some reason it just seems like I should.

Senate Approves Election-Year Terror Bill
Will Grant President Leeway to Decide Which Interrogation Techniques are Permissible

By ANNE PLUMMER FLAHERTY, AP

WASHINGTON (Sept. 29) - The Senate on Thursday endorsed President Bush's plans to prosecute and interrogate terror suspects, all but sealing congressional approval for legislation that Republicans intend to use on the campaign trail to assert their toughness on terrorism.

The 65-34 vote means the bill could reach the president's desk by week's end. The House passed nearly identical legislation on Wednesday and was expected to approve the Senate bill on Friday, sending it on to the White House.

The bill would create military commissions to prosecute terrorism suspects. It also would prohibit some of the worst abuses of detainees like mutilation and rape, but grant the president leeway to decide which other interrogation techniques are permissible.

The White House and its supporters have called the measure crucial in the anti-terror fight, but some Democrats said it left the door open to abuse, violating the U.S. Constitution in the name of protecting Americans.
