Thom Hartmann-Link

This is a great and touching article by Hartmann on the occasion of Worker's Memorial Day, which gets less attention than groundhog day in the U.S. Also,Monday is International Worker's Day, Bush is attempting to turn it into "Loyalty Day".

Belated Earth Day Blogging

Here in Colorado it's easy to get away from the hassle of the city and just wander through mountain parks, fish, or camp. Gas is not cheap, but it's worth it.

Just look at Denver, stewing in it's own juices. That brown cloud is nasty, photo taken on a Sunday morning.

This fellow lives in a lake in Washington Park in south central Denver, his home is an oasis in the city.

Censure Hearings-link

Hearings into the question of censuring began on Friday with minimal support from the Democratic Party. Only Pat Leahy has joined in the discussion with Russ Feingold. Senator Russell D. Feingold, the Wisconsin Democrat who proposed the censure motion and is considering a 2008 presidential run, argued that the Bush administration's insistence that it needed no Congressional approval for its wiretapping program implied that "we no longer have a constitutional system consisting of three co-equal branches of government; we have a monarchy." (my italics, from the Times).
Republican complaints against the censure move were predictable, "This will aid the enemy!", and the old favorite,"You'll endanger the troops on the ground!". Nowhere is there concern for the rule of law, with the possible exception of Arlen Specter, I think he may prove to be the wild card in this affair.
