Friday off to Tunisia for a week of sun, fun, and a visit to Tunis and Dougga.

 

Over the past 2 months I’ve been in court 52 times, all over Spain, (part of my job) and I’m at the end of my teather… So I need the holidays.

 

Stewie will come, of course, as well as my tablet.

 

Doubt I’ll post much until I come back (unless I get into a political vein on the beach), so hasta la vista folks!

———-

A parting “gift” (if you like bass and keyboards):

 

 

P.S. This is Dougga:

A grand jury indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts on Friday, charging that he abused his power last year when he tried to pressure the district attorney here, a Democrat, to step down by threatening to cut off state financing to her office.

Or should we call him “Mr. President“? I mean, the guy was a serious contender in the GOP’s clown primary.

This will not be news to any of you.

The public be damned!
— William H. Vanderbilt, railroad magnate, 1882

A shattering new study by two political science professors has found that ordinary Americans have virtually no impact whatsoever on the making of national policy in our country. The analysts found that rich individuals and business-controlled interest groups largely shape policy outcomes in the United States.

This study should be a loud wake-up call to the vast majority of Americans who are bypassed by their government. To reclaim the promise of American democracy, ordinary citizens must act positively to change the relationship between the people and our government

==snip==

If only they vote and organize, ordinary Americans can reclaim American democracy and challenge the politicians who still echo the view of old Vanderbilt that the public should be damned.

Ferguson, Missouri is burning.

If you can’t grasp that the subject line is ironic, let me know and I’ll give you some links to what happened. Basically, an unarmed kid was shot by a cop, and no one seems to give a shit because, well, as near as I can tell the cop was white and the kid was black.
