    Things I want to blog about but don't have time right now:
    * the new season of Survivor -- the tribes are comprised of different racial groups (black, white, Asian, Latino). Oooh, I have sooooooo much to say about this.
    * the birth of the new Japanese prince, which postpones the potential "succession crisis" and the debate about whether the laws should be changed to allow for greater opportunities for heirs to be born. Progressives want to change the law to allow for the royal daughters to accede. Traditionalists want to revert back to the practice of royal concubines to allow for more royal births.
    * whether or not the footage of Steve Irwin's death should be aired publicly -- okay, no need to wait on this one because there's no answer other than NO. Even though there are quotes by Irwin indicating that he would have wanted it to be shown. No. There's nothing to be learned from this video, and I can't imagine that it will be anything other than more traumatizing.
    * how long does it take for an anniversary of a horrible event to become a day again -- that is, when will the date "September 11th" stop setting off alarm bells in the minds of most Americans? A generation? I've been thinking about September 11th compared to December 7th. "9/11" v. "Pearl Harbor". Something the whole world witnessed v. something most people didn't learn about for (at least) hours. Definitely a long post in me on this...
    Anyway, that's what's been running around in my head. I just gotta get it out through my hands. If you have any thoughts on any of the above, please share. Maybe the comments will help me get the post actually written.

    I was going to post about Katherine Harris's brilliant comments that the separation of church and state is a lie, but it's old news now. But yesterday she pretty handily won the Republican nod for the senate race. Umm, did you check the demographics of the retirees in Florida? Yeah, good luck with that after saying "If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin." Pat Buchanan might have some advice for you there.

    I could also comment on the news that the big law salary for newbie first year associates in New York is now $145K, but that would be just too damned depressing to dwell on.
