Just a post to confirm the date. We’ll be starting up the superhero gaming thing this Saturday, March 24th, at our place.
All you need to bring is yourselves, plus some sort of character concept (if those of you with rulebooks want to have made characters already, that’s fine too.).
See you then!
This is simply amazing.
Four prominent conservatives, including Clinton-impeachment spearheader Bob Barr (former Republican congressman from Georgia), held a press conference today, announcing a campaign to, in their words, “restore checks and balances and civil liberties protections under assault by the Executive Branch.”
The American Freedom Agenda, as they call it, seeks to restore congressional oversight and habeas corpus, end torture and extraordinary rendition, narrow the President’s authority to designate ‘enemy combatants,’ prevent unconstitutional wiretaps, email and mail openings, protect journalists from prosecution under the Espionage Act, and more.
They actually said the following: “today, the clear and present danger to conservative philosophy is the White House.”
It’s about time. I think that not only the Democrats, but Non-Neo-Con Republicans as well, smell the blood in the water.
Given how things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bush becomes the second President to resign while in office.
After lunch, I browsed for a few minutes in the Oread Bookstore here at KU. They had a stack of Harry Dresden books on display, with a notice that Jim Butcher will be making an in-store appearance on Thursday, April 12th, from 4 to 6 p.m.
For those of you in the KC area, he’s going to be in your neck of the woods the day before (Wednesday, April 11th) at the 91st and Metcalf Borders.
Figured that some of you would be interested.
