Spending a cloudy Sunday alone can have its

melancholic moments.  However, there are some  

very nice advantages: napping at will; lazily going

through the newspaper; and picking a few newly-

discovered poems by Jim Kacian:





repotting the jade . . .
that I am childless





                                          bees drunk on my wine this flower-filled day







night fishing
bailing the moon
out of the boat





                                                             whiskey I sip it till I love it

topic.  There’s a good discussion at Lessig’s Blog, and see EFF,

and madisonian.net.



tiny check  I agree with Jeremy Richey that Barack Obama’s reasons for

voting against Judge Roberts’ nomination are not persuasive.

However, it’s only fair to point out that it is George W. Bush

who is always telling us that he’s looked into someone’s eyes

and seen his soul or his good heart.  Obama gets to make

similar assessments.
