Once again, thanks, Jeff, for staying with this shameful issue.
greenharper commented on the diary post Amnesty International Explains Why It Won’t Oppose All Drone Murders by David Swanson.
Thanks, NCB. Those radicals! Tom Jefferson and the rest of that lot. Who did they think they were? “No person” –note, no PERSON, not, no American — “shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or Indictment of a Grand Jury….” Pesky 5th Amendment! So easy to make [...]

Thanks for staying on top of this.
Shell would be daft to try a repeat of its disastrous 2012 summer.
Wouldn’t drilling with Gazprom give even worse odds of success?

Thanks for reporting on this, Kevin. Those brave people! And so many not so brave.

Thanks so much for keeping these prisoners in all of our minds.
Rec’d, and will send notes to all.
greenharper commented on the diary post Not a Paid Vacation: One Worker’s Story of the 2013 Government Shutdown by Gabriel Bernstein.
Thanks for laying this out. I was a federal employee during the mid-1990s shutdowns. They were no picnic for anyone affected. And, the Anti-Deficiency Act is no joke. I learned of it after having bought, with my own money, a printer ribbon for a computer printer that had lacked one for about 8 months. It [...]
Thanks for keeping this issue alive. I practiced international criminal law for a number of years. Even when we were vainly pursuing a certain slithery U.S. citizen pedophile through several successive Central American countries, the U.S. never revoked his passport. I’ve obtained the extradition of U.S. citizens charged with horrific murders whose passports the U.S. [...]
Thank you for having the integrity to write this.
It seems to me as if the U.S. has, in a number of respects, become unhinged from common sense and common humanity.
I speak as a former fed who once was proud to represent the United States.

Thanks yet again, Jeff.
If Sabet is a one-trick pony, he is at least a smart one: Berkeley, & a Ph.D. from Oxford Univ. as a Marshall Scholar.
Per Wikipedia, he “is President of a drug policy consulting company, Policy Solutions Lab, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.”
Perhaps that has something to do with Sabet’s scaremongering about cannabis?

Ah — didn’t the Pentagon Papers, which then-Senator Mike Gravel read aloud on the floor of the Senate, top 7,000?

Would that this analysis were ill-founded.
But it sounds pretty sound.
So I wonder how best to create a different world, more workable for most of us, nonetheless.

What’s with Jerry Brown on this?
That non-English speakers need interpreters in order to access medical care effectively in the U.S. should be a no-brainer.

High time Franklin got the recognition that she earned & deserves.

Glad that Rousseff is hanging on to this one like a mongoose.

Even the squib is horrendous.
The cold war was not so long ago.
