Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production



Good morning all! This is Irwin J. McIckleson fictional 1910's plutocrat, providing links to various sites around the future-net.

Dohiyi Mir has
a piece on the increased difficulty in traveling. Apparently it is more difficult than usual.

Liberty Street has
further information on how times are difficult in Britain because of these recent troubles.

Echidne of the Snakes has
some thoughts on who females who engage in politics are treated and how they should act. Personally I think when it comes to politics, both sexes should be able to express their views equally. I am in strong support of female suffrage. I mean in reality both males and females are pretty uniformly muttonheads; disparaging the female for expressing her point of view just seems pointless. Plus of course the few people who aren't muttonheads have an equal chance of being females or males, and you might be silencing one of the few people who could actually contribute to the national debate.

Athenae at First Draft has
a reaction to the sentence a judge handed down saying that the President is not allowed to break the law. She believes that if this sentence is not upheld, it will mean that the rule of law does not, effectively, exist. That makes sense to me.

Happy Furry Puppy Story Time, a website I rarely understand, has
a humorous conversation regarding how the Bush Administration is defending itself in this current legal tussle.

Musings Musings has
a further review of this decision and it's implications, as well as the legal questions involved.

Pen Elayne on the Web has
the rundown on a recent incident involving the Governor of Virginia and a loose tongue.

LEFT is RIGHT has a
good quote on how the American people don't want bad policy, no matter how bipartisan it is.

Along those same lines, Iddybud
laments the inclusion of religious fundementalism in how the Bush Administration makes decisions.

And that is it for another week. Have productive weekends.
