this morning's paper

According to The Washington Post’s Dana Millbank, Supreme Court Justice Kennedy might want to watch his back. Conservative leaders got together recently to discuss “Confronting the Judicial War on Faith” and many in the group called for Kennedy to be impeached, while others seemed to hint at something more drastic. According to Millbank, those in attendance were not “fringe characters”. The laundry list of attendees (which sounds a bit like The Surreal Life as brought to you by Fox News) included "two House members; aides to two senators; representatives from the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America; conservative activists Alan Keyes and Morton C. Blackwell; the lawyer for Terri Schiavo's parents; Alabama's "Ten Commandments" judge, Roy Moore; and DeLay, who canceled to attend the pope's funeral."

After you’re done reading that article, check out this one about the potential for a youth uprising in Russia. Don’t dismiss it. Putin isn’t. He’s got his staff meeting with rock stars and others from the world of entertainment, trying to stamp out any possibility that they could have the same influence on youth-led revolution that their peers had in Ukraine.
