LRC pick
Back in the USSR
Ashcroft wants defense attorneys to be adjuncts of the prosecution. Article by Paul Craig Roberts.

I think it kicks - nice use of Flash.

About the icon - very lovely of course, but one can see how its use here might offend people in the Orthodox tradition, seeing that at least in practice the Episcopal Church often denies the theology (not opinions, but objective truth - the Orthodox are clear on that!) represented in most of this icon's symbols! The Catholic faith reduced to a dish in Frank Griswold's smorgasbord of relativism.

One can imagine the 'dialogue':

The Revd Tyler Higginbotham, A.B., M.A., M.Div., D.Phil., S.O.B. (and his 'partner', Chad): Hey, look at us! We're just like you!

His Grace Bishop + Methodius, lifelong Russian Orthodox: NO, YOU'RE NOT!

Episcopal parody song
I'm an odd duck in a lot of ways, one of which is being a narrowly focused anglophile and so am not mad about Gilbert and Sullivan despite having been in two amateur productions (chorus parts in Trial by Jury and Iolanthe). But in the words of our father among the saints Homer of Springfield, 'it's so funny because it's true'!
