Assorted points of note:

First, I'll be throwing a party Monday night, July 3rd. I'll send out an evite to the usual local suspects. If any other readers are interested drop me a comment and I'll include you.

Second, The next Snake Pliskin movie might just be escape from New Orleans. Apparently the city is being terrorized by a transvestite gang.

Third, tonight I hit Archives II over at College Park. I'm excited about it. I am such a research geek.

Fourth, still having mood swings on Iraq. I won't comment further until there's more developments. But on the domestic front today's Supreme Court ruling apparently means that "Common Article 3 of Geneva aplies as a matter of treaty obligation to the conflict against Al Qaeda." Over at Scotus blog Marty Lederman points out that this would mean prohibitations of "cruel treatment and torture," and "outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment" apply. Prior to the Bush administration I'd have taken that as a given. These days I'm instead quite thrilled. Whoo!

Had to add, Slate has found other exciting news: a patent providing guidance on how to swing on a swing. I've been known to engage in the side to side swing myself, although on a multi-swing set it can lead to complications.
