Late last spring I spent a lot of my spare time over several weeks researching this issue and related topics because I *was* concerned. It was part of an extended conversation with someone whose blog I had read (sometimes I go googling for a good bar fight...). You can see most of the results of my research at http://tinyurl.com/yv897d and http://blogs.salon.com/0004478/2007/07/09.html although the blogger I was having the conversation with seems to have dropped some of my comments regarding the landmark Supreme Court case in the late 19th century that established corporations as persons. Anyway, that's when I came to the conclusion that Bush was making some questionable calls in his interpretation of our laws, but that the system was basically doing it's job of challenging him. > > Here's wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

I'll be spending this Thursday all alone here in Boulder, probably with a Marie Callender's frozen Turkey dinner (they're actually quite good). On the plus side I won't miss the traveling during this period. Hope you and yours have a good Thanksgiving!
