If by "dog" you mean "cat" then I am there

Been writing all day. Boring and not even very productive, to be honest.

Yesterday, a three-judge panel of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that protesters at a rally next month at the School of the Americas cannot be required to pass through metal detectors.

Judge Gerald Tjoflat (is that really a last name?) wrote We cannot simply suspend or restrict civil liberties until the War of Terror is over, because the War on Terror is unlikely ever to be truly over.

He continues, September 11, 2001, already a day of immeasurable tragedy, cannot be the day liberty perished in this country.

Well said, duder.
