Guys, it's only a two bunny litter box

Uhm, Lookout...

Here we have Lookout asserting her dominance though mouthing behavior.

A lot of people don't realize that even spayed rabbits "mount" as a way of showing dominance. Another factoid that surprises a lot of people is that females are just as likely to mount as males, particularly if they, like Lookout here, are the "Alpha Bunny."

As you can see, Echo and Beanbag aren't impressed with her behavior, and are clearly just waiting for her to finish.

Despite being in charge, Lookout is a bit insecure about her place in the pecking order.

Beanbag and Lookout, hangin' out

They appear to like the freshly cleaned litter box

My Nephew

My Nephew left this with my parents last time he and my sister visited.

I think it falls cleanly into the "Cute but creepy" category, don't you?

The Family Crest

Welcome to my office

You gotta love the air conditioning in basement offices.

Why do I keep ending up working in basements? It's a distressing pattern. I start off working in a room with a window, and then after about two years, I'm in a basement. I half expect to look over my shoulder and see Milton asking about his red stapler.

Bush Illegally Silences Critic of Iran Policy

"Flynt Leverett -- former CIA analyst, NSC member and established foreign policy expert -- has written an op-ed for the NYT bashing the Bush admin. for it's failed policies towards Iran. The WH, in typical ruthless and authoritarian form, has pressured the CIA to heavily redact his draft on the grounds that it would reveal national security secrets -- something the CIA disagrees with -- and have even threatened him with criminal prosecution. Leverett, visibly distraught at his press conference today, has countered that this claim is a "fraudulent" and deliberate attempt to silence a respected critic by politicizing the CIA review process"

Kinda puts the electronic voting machines thing in perspective, doesn't it?

Subject: Can This Ad Restore Habeas Corpus?


Click to view the full ad

We've identified 25 members of Congress whose votes will make or break efforts to restore habeas corpus, stop torture, and end warrantless spying.

Now, we urgently need more supporters like you in key Congressional districts. Your gift today will help create hometown pressure for our efforts to reclaim lost liberties.

Dear Matthew,

"We need more people. And we need them in the right places." That's what our legislative director, Caroline Fredrickson, told me when I asked her what we need to win real civil liberties victories in the new Congress.

That's why we're running ads where it will count to build up our hometown strength.

The ACLU's membership has more than doubled in recent years. But, in too many congressional districts, we still lack the hometown strength we'll need in the weeks ahead to restore habeas corpus, stop torture, and reclaim our lost liberties.

We must raise enough money to run ads for each of our top 25 targeted Congressional Districts. Just how many ads we're able to run is going to be up to you. Please view the districts and then support our ad campaign now.

In each of these places, we're looking for someone almost exactly like you. Same values. Same passionate commitment to freedom. Same determination to reclaim our lost liberties. But not necessarily the same hometown.

For example, on the 40-member House Judiciary Committee, there are nine key representatives in districts where we absolutely need more ACLU members -- more members for those critical, decisive votes in Congress.

With the help of ACLU supporters like you, we're going to run newspaper ads in local papers like the El Paso Times in Texas, the Greensboro News and Record in South Carolina and the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri. Our goal: attract thousands of new ACLU members and supporters in our crucial 25 targeted Congressional Districts.

Help run the ads that will give the ACLU the strength to make genuine progress for freedom in 2007.

You've done so much to stand up for freedom in 2006. If you want all of your hard work to pay off, now is the time to do even more. Help support our ad campaign and other wide-ranging efforts to build the strength we need to win in 2007.

Let's make sure we don't fall a few votes short when it's all on the line in the new Congress. We're counting on your help with this very special project.

P.S. Please view the 25 Congressional Districts, and then make a gift to help us run ads and build our base of support in as many of them as we possibly can.

Quotes of the Day

Computers allow humans to make mistakes at the fastest speeds known, with the possible exception of tequila and handguns

A thousand pages of hobbits hasn't been enough for three generations of post-World War II fantasy fans; even when you add in that clumsy, galumphing dirigible of an epilogue, The Silmarillion, it hasn't been enough. Hence Terry Brooks, Piers Anthony, Robert Jordan, the questing rabbits of Watership Down. and half a hundred others. The writers of these books are creating the hobbits they still love and pine for; they are trying to bring Frodo and Sam back from the Grey Havens because Tolkien is no longer around to do it for them.
