Round-up piece on the news

Excellent piece on the assassination of abortion provider George Tiller

This person apologizes for her lack of eloquence in describing the kind of doctor that George Tiller was, but I think she did a great job

Kansas TV station 12 has the latest on the hunt for the killer


Speaking of ranting, raving hatemongers, George Miller, the highest-ranking Republican officeholder (Senate Minority Leader), refuses to condemn Rush Limbaugh, et al, who are making wild, hysterical claims about Judge Sonia Sotomayor, the Supreme Court nominee

Obviously, Miller is absolutely terrified to get on Rush's bad side.

People are suggesting that Sotomayor, as a member of the National Council of La Raza, is thereby a member of a hate group, akin to the Nazis and the KKK. Here's their side of the story

Rachel Maddow takes that talking point apart

Ed Rendell does not wish to see Joe Sestak run for Arlen Specter's seat

Oh, and I did a piece on different computer operating systems and how they interface with each other. Short answer - you can work with documents that are created on other operating systems, but you can't move programs that are designed for one operating system to another. You can work with a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet on Linux Ubuntu (add to it, delete from it, print it and save it), but you can't move the MS Excel program to Ubuntu.
