Anniversary: Thank you to all who wished Mark and me a happy anniversary. That meant so much! :)

Supreme Court: Harriet Miers has withdrawn her name from consideration for nomination as a Supreme Court Justice. I'm glad she did that. A Justice of the Supreme Court needs to be someone with proven knowledge and experience of Constitutional law, and from what I've seen, Miers has neither.

She may be an honorable woman with a lot of integrity in the Presiden't eyes, but you just can't pick someone who is your personal lawyer and expect the country to sit still for that. I hope Bush's next choice for Supreme Court nominee will be someone with respected credentials, who is moderate and fair-minded. I don't want anyone who is a hard-line conservative or liberal; people like that are just obnoxious.

Sports: It was so neat, seeing the Chicago White Sox fans celebrate. (g) I wish the Astros had won, but there will be other World Series.

Writing: My Nanowrimo 2005 tracking page in my musevoices journal is here. For now, the entry is public. On November 1 I will make it friends-only. If you wish to be able to read the work in progress--a rewrite of The Curse of Avriet, and are not friended to musevoices, let me know, and I'll friend you to that journal.

*rolling up soeeves* The long haul continues.

Comments

I've found myself feeling very sorry for Ms. Miers all day. Of course she wasn't going to refuse the nomination initially. It's a great honor to be chosen for such a job by any president. But I feel as if the President put her into a situation where she was doomed to fail. I hope very much that he has apologised to her for having put her through this ordeal.

I'm with you in hoping that he chooses a moderate jurist with a good strong background in constitutional law as the next candidate.

Anniversary


I know I'm a little late! No power. :)

Congrats and happy anniversary!!
