Supreme Court: Harriet Miers has withdrawn her name from consideration for nomination as a Supreme Court Justice.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.
