You know, it’s kind of admirable to stand up for a completely wrongheaded principle to such a degree that you’ll give up millions of dollars. Augusta National Golf Club is so set against letting women in that they’ll sponsor the tournament themselves and ditch the sponsors who were pressuring them to join the modern era.
Bill would restrict commutations
“You know, we’re not killing nearly enough people. What we should do is restrict the governor’s power to commute death sentences!”
This wouldn’t actually do that. It would limit the governor’s commutation power to only changing a death penalty conviction to life without parole. You know how many death penalties have been commuted in this state, by the way? One.
Dominion has a history of Labor Day. And it’s a good explanation of why I’m still a unionist.

Drivers say Alabaster mayor crosses line

DC Baseball in 2003?
Agreement Reached, Games to Continue (washingtonpost.com)
I thought I’d throw this out there relating to Baseball finally coming up with a Collective Bargaining Agreement without a work stoppage. Part of the agreement is that the owners pledged to not contract any teams until 2006. Now, the Montreal Expos are currently under the ownership of MLB itself and were expected to be contracted. (I never really bought that.) As it is, baseball is supposedly not viable in Montreal. Given that, the Expos would have to move, the first team relocation since the mid-seventies. Washington (the last city to lose a team) seems the most probable location.

They’re looking for a married couple, actually, or I’d be on this like a shot. I mean, shepherd jobs don’t open up all the time.
