Sarah reports from an unknown location:
Priorities, people, priorities...
(Text) National Public Radio News is reporting that many stranded travelers on highways in Colorado -- except for the ones headed to ski resorts, to which the roads have already been cleared as a priority -- and homebound residents may have to wait days for roads to reopen.

I'm two days late celebrating what should be a national holiday: Evolution Day, December 20, 2005, when Judge John Jones ruled againt the creationist loons in Kitzmiller et al vs. Dover Area School District.
Presumably, evolution didn't stop, oh, 10,000 or 50,000 years ago, but continues its workings even unto the present day. Now scientists have some proof. The New Scienist: Read more about Scientists: Humans continue to evolve today
Just a little Nelson Munzt moment over this: "No tengo futuro. Titter, you got that right, hombre. Mainly because no one is interested in another member of the family that brought us choice quotes like this one. Idiocy and incompetence only go so far. Enjoy your retirement in Boca.

So my perception of last night is this:
I write a post saying Harry Reid may have finally grown some nuts. Chris Bowers writes a post that I read as "Don't Say Mean Things about Harry Reid!" Then Atrios writes "Don't Say Mean Things About Chris Bowers!" Read more about Messaging, Policy, and Wonking
I've got a guest in town, so light blogging for a couple of days. But I wanted to tell everyone to go to the National Galleries when you have the chance. To my shame, every time I came to DC before moving here, I was always too busy with protests and parties to take in any culture. Read more about Culture is So Cool
That is the only question that matters right now. Dennis Kucinich (yes I know he's too short to be President, but look what happened to John Kerry) sez:
"The new Democratic Congress must stop the President from escalating the war. We must not appropriate any new funding. Up to $160 billion for the war will be asked for in the spring. That would bring the total for the war for FY 2007 to $230 billion. This amount is almost double the $117 billion spent in all of FY 2006.
The excellent Pachacutec on ICE concentration camps for children who, having been born here, are US citizens.
See, it can happen here.
And it can happen to you.

[Time to "reset" this hardy perennial of a post. Went to Atrios last night, and got the message: "This blog is currently moving to the new version of Blogger. Please try back in a little while." So I went to Atrios this morning, and got the very same message! I guess the notion of "a little while" is a wee bit elastic. "Push button publishing"? Sure, except you have to keep pushing the button...
UPDATE Atrios is now back up, at the correct URL,

The letters "I" and "C." Yet again, he puts a thumb in the eye of Democrats while seeming conciliatory. I guess He just can't help himself. WaPo:
"[BUSH] There's a lot of attitude here that says, 'Well, you lost the Congress. Therefore, you're not going to get anything done.' Quite the contrary," he said. "I have an interest to get things done. And the Democrat leaders have an interest to get something done to show that they're worthy of their leadership roles."
That's Democratic leaders, George, you putz. Read more about Bush could start earning trust by learning two little letters
It was really wrong of me to ask whether all the megachurch "pastors" gay, or only some of them. Christianists, can you ever forgive me? Because some of the megachuch pastors are child abusers, too (via memeorandum): Read more about Yet another Republican Christianist child abuser (though not yet in rehab)
