A Long Day's Journey Into Night

      Oh, my American friends, you have my sympathies: with Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's announced retirement yesterday, I fear your extra-special Presimuhdent will finally be able to stack the court with ultra-right wing ideologues.    In other words, I suspect, among other things, that Shrub will finally follow through and deliver on his "Dredd Scott" promise, the coded message that he would not appoint a pro-choice justice to the court. Roe v. Wade can probably look forward to being overturned in the not-too-distant future.    Congratulations, Americanoes.    Aren't you glad you elected the Dumbo from Crawford, now....
