Dickie's Quickies

Great obit of Ali Farka Toure

The Arizona Republic reports on a Bishop in the Catholic Church denying Communion to an autistic 10 year old boy. File under "wacko".

From an article in the NY Times, two different perspectives on the constitutional role of Congress:
"We're eager to work with Congress on legislation that would further codify the president's authority," Ms. Perino [B.D. - White House spokesman] said. "We remain committed to our principle, that we will not do anything that undermines the program's capabilities or the president's authority."

"The committee is, to put it bluntly, basically under the control of the White House," said Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, the West Virginia Democrat who is vice chairman of the panel.

Which perspective do you think summarizes the correct constitutional role of oversight? will take web pages that do not have an RSS feed and basically convert them to an RSS feed for your convenience. Interesting.
