Let’s raise a million

Ron Paul’s campaign website just reported passing the original end-of-the quarter goal of $500k and is continuing their blistering fundraising pace towards $1 million by Sunday. Pretty amazing considering the drive to $500k started at noon on Monday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture the screenshot with my name, but you should donate and watch [...]

Over the last week or so, I had the honor of hosting my good friend Jason Talley, the Crasher-in-Chief of Bureaucrash, here in my fair city of Birmingham. Though I won’t use that as an excuse for my lack of posts lo these many days:), it was good to have Jason here. Most folks, however, [...]

DNA test for Tommy Arthur?

He certainly ought to get one. Tommy Arthur, a convicted murderer, will be executed tomorrow unless his request for DNA testing is granted by Governor Riley. The Gov. has already denied the request, even though Arthur’s attorneys are willing to pay for it (such a test can cost thousands of dollars). In light of all [...]

For those considering law school…

This is the sort of thing it may drive you to. I guess learning legal theory and doctrine through music is cool in a lame, geeky, law school sort of way. I mean, it’s no Rose of Aberlone, but what is? Links to Law School of Rock dude, Josh Keesan, from the good folks at [...]

Dalitso’s bloggin’

My good friend and recent transplant to the Golden State, Dalitso, is blogging up a storm at Studious Eccentric Perspective. Stop on by and welcome him to the Blogosphere on these here internets.

Second thoughts on Siegelman

I didn’t pay much attention to the Siegelman case, so I can’t say one way or another. Radley points to this piece, which makes a pretty convincing argument that Siegelman’s prosecution was all about politics.

I am finally ready to start recounting my adventures over the past month or so. I am calling this the Great North American Travelogue because I traveled from Birmingham to DC to Canada (Ontario and Quebec) through the Northeastern US, briefly back to B’ham and then down to Florida, a few pit stops in Mexico [...]

Five Guys is here!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good cheeseburger and while I generally prefer homemade (because I can make it as rare as I want to), there are several places around town that make a delicious cheeseburger. I happen to think that Hamburger Heaven (which, even with three locations, inexplicably has no website) [...]

Ona’s Music Room

If you live anywhere near Birmingham and have even the slightest interest in Jazz, Blues and their many variants, you must check out Ona’s Music Room at 423 20th Street South. I’ve driven past many times and thought that it looked interesting, but never ventured in until last night to see “Bethany Borg and Friends” [...]

Bond. Immigration bond.

Yes, the Great North American Travelogue is compiling itself at this very moment. I will have it up by the end of the week, but it will consist of several posts, so please be patient. (Procrastination, thy name is Thomas Pearson.) And as Nikki so kindly confirmed that my typing speed is permanently set to [...]
