  • A pretty good article here from Daniel Henninger; he reports on the final day of oral arguments in the Supreme Court's term. Very interesting, but what especially tickled was this:
    … Justice Souter had fixed the attorneys with a stiff, slightly scary New Hampshire stare.
    Beware, all you non-Graniteers! We've perfected that kind of thing up here.

  • Just across the Salmon Falls River, a Maine blogger named Lance Dutson publishes the Maine Web Report. His bête noir is the Maine Office of Tourism and how they spend funds in trying to suck vacationers into the state; he's especially unfond of Tourism's relationship with Warren Kremer Paino Advertising, an agency located on Park Avenue in New York City. Now Dutson's been hit with a multi-million dollar lawsuit from Warren Kremer Paino. A good place to start is this Pajamas Media article, full of relevant links. Also (via Instapundit) Ed Cone has more.

    I'd like to urge anyone outraged by this to take their vacations in New Hampshire instead. That'll show 'em.

  • Have we mentioned that a lot (by which we mean: probably all) of the political gasbaggery about fuel prices is grounded in economic illiteracy? Oh, yeah, we did. But since that post, there have been lots more demonstrations, and none more entertaining than Mary Katherine Ham's interview with Maria Cantwell (D-WA) excerpted at Wizbang. The post also has links to a couple of columns from Thomas Sowell, also recommended.

  • On the other hand, if you (a) just want to have some web-surfing fun; (b) have seen Shakespeare in Love; (c) have seen Star Wars movies (the good ones): go see George Lucas in Love.
