A February day that verges on summery is a bit disorienting. Someone in the neighborhood was sufficiently disoriented to light a fire in their fireplace, and the scent of woodsmoke floated on the balmy afternoon air. Some plant or other is also disoriented, releasing pollen which made me feel as though my air passages had begun to grow a cozy fur lining. If this keeps up I'll need an inhaler.
A bit of webloggery:
The Wrathful Dispersion Controversy: A Canadian Perspective is an entertaining piece ofparody a couple of months old, but still slouching toward memehood.

LJ has gotten so large that its content is no easier to find on site than from outside sources.
I wonder how Roberts and Alito might have decided on the landmark case of Reno vs ACLU, in which the Communications Decency Act, a Clinton-era law gelding the Internet, was struck down ten years ago. I wonder how they will decide in the upcoming battle over the nearly-as-restrictive COPA? (From Wired News.)
