From an actual resumé

A great bit of management-speak:

"A Seasoned management executive, with extensive experience, in creating, developing and executing strategies, plans and courses of actions for value addition, asset enhancement, and improving the value of an organization."

Miniblog: In which I am irked by NPR's political reporting

NPR (probably Steve Inskeep) just referred to Jay Rockefeller as being "in the liberal wing of his party."

That's true. If there's one thing us liberals love, it's companies getting paid in tax dollars to illegally eavesdrop on Americans, then using some of that money to pay Senators like Jay Rockefeller to get them off the hook. That is one of our core liberal values.

I also enjoyed the clip of Rockefeller praising Reid as a Good and Righteous public servant, unconcerned with how healthcare will affect his re-election. I have no doubt that is true.

Scalia: No constitutional problems executing an innocent man

“This Court has never held that the Constitution forbids the execution of a convicted defendant who has had a full and fair trial but is later able to convince a habeas court that he is ‘actually’ innocent. Quite to the contrary, we have repeatedly left that question unresolved, while expressing considerable doubt that any claim based on alleged ‘actual innocence’ is constitutionally cognizable.” --Antonin Scalia
This is the case he's talking about. Seven of 9 eyewitnesses have now recanted.
