We have universal healthcare — by default — Some sanity on the healthcare "debate". It isn't really much of a debate, of course, when one side's talking points are mostly counterfactual.

Justices don’t understand insurance, health care, economics … — This is depressing. It's been obvious at least since Bush v. Gore that the conservative wing of the Supreme Court is nakedly partisan at the expense of both law and justice, but now they're not even pretending to impartiality of any sort.

How Much of the Health-Care Law Will the Justices Leave Intact?Wednesday's argument over how to split up the health-care law may give some of its supporters hope -- but not much. Because the same conservatives who want the government to come between women and their doctors don't want the government to come between themselves and their doctors. Or something. Intellectual consistency isn't exactly a cardinal virtue on the American right.

The Case for Gay Acceptance in the Catholic ChurchThe death penalty no longer applies to people who divorce or sleep with women during their periods, as described in the Bible. So why can't attitudes on homosexuality change as well? In two words: conservative bigotry.

My hair is neither short nor neat. It's more than waist-length, greying, prone to split ends, thick enough to snap rubber bands on a regular basis, and has that want-to-curl-but-too-heavy halfhearted wave to it whenever it's longer than ear-length.

"Captain, my tricorder appears to be wearing a red hat."

And is that hat a fez, by any chance?

Short, yes. But not neat more than a few minutes after I leave the house, esp. in this weather.

As for the whole health care tragedy, I'll be over in that corner weeping.
