TP - Reading an update this morning into the Republican attempt to crucify Hillary's private server, it occurred to me we may be fighting the wrong battle on these things. Instead of demanding the Republicans back off, perhaps we should be demanding they put Trey Gowdy in charge of all investigations regarding Democraic issues.

CBC - Sounds more like a Trump plot than a Cruz plot to me, but whatever.

New Yorker - "Fortunately, he mostly failed. …" Really? What universe does Toobin live in? He mostly succeeded in my book!

HuffPo - Ben Who? (Not to be confused with Ben Huh.)

Universe - 1. Pole dancing? How risque! 2. Are those kittens? At first I thought the one moving was a squirrel and the one not moving was its tail...

An excellent thing about being an old woman; don't need Planned Parenthood.

The war that is not the war on women, IS the war on women, regardless of the BS the GOPigs, and Kasich claim!

I have to agree with Joanne: Scalia was a huge part of the unwinding of democracy, here!

Ben Carson needs to find another source of revenue, needs to stop picking the pockets of the imbeciles who would be dumb enough to help fund his excuse for a campaign. Either that, or he needs to go on Prolixin, or some other anti-psychotic drug!

" As we gain knowledge and develop wisdom, our perceptions change. With that, the constitution takes on nuances of interpretation that did not previously exist. The framers could not know what lay 227 years in the future."

This is common knowledge. And accepted practice or SCOTUS would still be writing their decisions with quill pens and ink. The very concept of Originalism is ridiculous on its face, any fool can see this country is NOT at all what it was when the constitution was penned. We need a living document but then again, people whom purport to believe that we should be acting exactly as a book written 2000 years ago says, or 1200 years ago, are not really in touch with reality at all. And neither was Scalia.

Catnaps on their way, Lynn. I'm sure you'll be alright tonight..

Think Progress: This is so bad. I think all Republicans are born with a Janus face and as soon as they learn to talk they learn to do that out of both sides at once. Those who can do that the best become politicians, and Kasich was one of them. You can hardly blame Kasich for doing what comes so naturally to him and which is so stimulated by his party, blame his mother for having him and above all blame the people who see and hear politicians like him talk out of both sides of their face but vote for them anyway.

CBC: After reading the whole article I'm none the wiser why the FAA put up this ban for Canadian private airplanes from US air space ("a perceived loophole" in what?, leading to what?) and I'm still completely in the dark why Transport Canada was not told this was about to happen. And I gather so are most Canadians. This seems to have been a very costly blunder of the FAA; costly to them as I'm sure America will be made to cough up some compensation for it. Isn't it amazing what kind of consequences the Republican Reign of Fear (of Muslim terrorist attacks) can have?

The New Yorker: Jeffry Toobin believes that Scalia has mostly failed in making making the United States a less fair, less tolerant, and less admirable democracy. I disagree. OK, Scallia needed the other 4 Republican Justices to wreak most of his havoc, but wreak he did. Not only with his "originalism" where his interpretation of the Constitution was concerned - well, it was original, I'll give you that - but also with his zealotry based on a very personal and dark interpretation of the bible, i.e. the old testament. These interpretations became darker the more his mind clouded over as he advanced in years. Scalia was inimitable, the likes of him will not be found soon. Thank goodness for that. From here on SCOTUS can only go forward.

HuPo: America would do well to get rid of this delegate system, even a candidate like Ben Carson knows how to spin it to his advantage ;-)

My Universe: I can see the bug the first cat is playing with. My cats make the same weird dance around a spider sometimes. But what is that second cat doing to that defenseless kitten?

JD and Lona, I agree that Scalia succeeded in making the US less tolerant, less fair and steered it away from democracy. It is good that he is gone! Now for replacement.

Thanks all!
