    Dang, I had my reservations about Obama, but I never dreamed in my worst nightmares he would turn out to be as bad as he actually is. Of course, I said something similar about Bush the Younger, that while I’d been prepared for what I thought was the worst, he far exceeded those fears.

    Word to citizen journalists, and any journalists trying to capture what some of our police are doing: Little tiny camersas for backup. And good insurance for when the police go whackjob on journalist’s property. (Or do insurance companies have ways of protecting themselves when vandalism is done under cover of “law enforcement”?)
