After dark


The party's over?



In China:

We may, therefore, soon witness in China revolution by spontaneous combustion. Despite his belief that revolutions must be minutely organized, Lenin’s own state was eventually brought down not by a network of plotters but by an impromptu crowd. What we witnessed in Moscow—the disintegration of a state in a matter of days—later replayed itself in Manila, Lima, Belgrade, Kiev, and Tbilisi. Chinese people today may not have revolutionary intentions, yet their acts of protest at this unsettling time have revolutionary implications nonetheless.

The judges ... help!!

Has anyone done the digging on the judges yet this election? I have checked several sites and the party labels don't seem to be out there. Other than Leto Copeley I have no idea who are likely to be good choices. (... and yes I'll be partisan as much as I like.)

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?
