Federal officials are immune to most suits for actions that are within their duties-- and a G.O.P. lawyer says Cheney, Rove and Libby were "government employees simply engaged in rebutting allegations." Butconstitutional expert Erwin Chemerinsky, who's on the Plame-Wilson legal team, is confident: "The evidence is clear that the defendants abused their power."

Subject: Bush Odd Behavior
gee, i really have to wonder why bush didn't speak to the press. maybe because he made a complete ass of himself. what an embarrassment to the US. bush acted like he was seriously on something, like maybe say alcohol or as has been rumored, heavy antidepressants. God help us all.
Something is wrong with the man -- alcohol or drugs could explain his behavior. But wonder if he's stone cold sober? That's even more frightening.
Promoting Another Failure
William Haynes has done so much harm to the
rule of law that it would be ludicrous to make him a ruler on the law.
Yet President Bush has nominated the Pentagon's chief counsel to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, one notch below the Supreme Court.
As Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's top lawyer, Mr. Haynes helped to craft policies that allowed the use of dogs on prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Thanks for your bravery. I wouldn't be surprised if the FBI was watching you. Seems like dissent isn't tolerated now-a-days. ($12 cash enclosed)
Thank you for your support!
I read your mail to my Southern Sage and she responded, "Hell, Lisa, if the FBI is watching you, they know you have a hell of lot more to worry about than them watching you." So true. God, I just love her - she always sees the forest through the trees.
I don't feel brave at all, I feel as though I am using my freedom of speech before it's taken away. But thank you for the compliment!

Pinky and Perky two four week old miniature piglets cool off at Pennywell Farm and Wildlife centre near Buckfastleigh, south western England Wednesday July 19, 2006 in this photo provided by the centre. The piglets were keeping cool with a huge lolly packed with carrots and other vegetables. 'The recent heat wave has been exhausting for everyone and animals are no exception,' said Catherine Tozer, assistant manager of the farm. 'All the animals have been struggling with the heat so we have just tried to do everything we can to make them more comfortable. 'After the initial shock and a bit of investigation, the ice lollies went down a real treat,' she said. (Photo/Pennywell Farm and Wildlife Centre, Catherine Tozer)
