Memories of a judge
Bush's Supreme Court nominee John C. Roberts apparently grew up along Lake Michigan in NW Indiana. On NBC-5 news tonight, they interviewed a 7th grade classmate of Roberts. The classmate's one recollection of him was that in an assignment in which they had to generate an idea for an invention, Roberts came up with a brilliant idea: to create a self rotating fork that will automatically wind up your spaghetti noodles for you. A few minutes ago, Senator Kennedy issued a statement denouncing the invention. UPDATE: The Illinois Leader's headline story is not about Roberts, exactly, but about how Dick Durbin called Roberts controversial. They also ran a big picture of Dick Durbin next to the article. Do you think the Illinois Leader is secretly in love with Dick Durbin? Is that why everything always gotta be about Dick Durbin? Just out of curiousity, I did search of the Leader's site on "durbin" -- 1092 posts came up. A search on "hastert" revealed only 653 posts. So I ask you, Illinios Leader, who's in your dreams tonight?
