First, revel in Harper’s cover story in March: the I-word.

Second, notice that conservative talk radio in Los Angeles, especially Rush and Hannity, has tanked while progressive talkers are on the rise.

The John Roberts Supreme Court hears an appeal of Tom DeLay’s Texas redistricting scam on Wednesday.

A federal judge shot down Rummy’s effort to destroy civil service and collective bargaining rules inside the Pentagon.
