Quick hits

Blog-like items.

  • A Washington Post article on World Trade Center fraud. Which was very little compared to the overall size of relief efforts, but fascinating to read about all the same.
  • A droll WP article about a Democratic candidate forum hosted by the Human Rights Campaign:

    With that [introduction], seven of the nine Democrats -- only Sens. John Edwards and Bob Graham did not attend -- take the stage in a systematic effort to say, in a collective manner of speaking, that some of the Democrats' best friends are gay.

    Indeed.

  • I frequently disagree with posts over at the Volokh Conspiracy, but Eugene Volokh has posted a cogent series regarding gay marriage, trying to look at the arguments offered against it in a concrete manner, rather than tossing around vague abstractions. Start with "How Sweet" and scroll up and up, to (so far) today's post "Still More on Gay Marriage".
  • Song lyrics of the day, courtesy of my morning commute CD:

    Wouldn't be here if the Athenia hadn't sunk
    Or if dear old dad hadn't got so drunk

    From the Old 97's "Rollerskate Skinny," off Satellite Rides. A close second is this verse from the same song:

    Ain't nobody gonna see eye to eye
    With a girl who's only gonna stand collarbone high
    Rain's gonna come in fair-sized drips
    We're gonna go to heaven wearing paper hat ships

    but that can't match the sheer "Huh?" value of the first.
