Chief Justice Roberts has been taken to a hospital after falling on the dock of his summer home in Maine. It's been confirmed that the fall was a result of a seizure. Roberts also had an unexplained seizure in 1993. We wish him well, of course, but this could be . . . interesting.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department is having seizures of another sort in Alaska, ordering FBI and IRS agents to raid the home of Republican Sen. Ted Stevens. Stevens, the 7-term boil on the butt of the Senate -- and the competition for that honor has been stiff -- is under investigation for his relationship with a (suprise!) wealthy contractor. Maybe the bridge to nowhere has a pot of gold at the end afterall.
The C-Line likes to think of itself as more reflective of the news than cutting edge, sort of the slow food of blogs. But sometimes fast food is just too hard to pass up. So have at it.
Post note. Read on.
For more on the class act that is Sen. Stevens, check out Firedoglake's post on what he had to say about "the internets" back in 2006, when he was Chairman of the Commerce Committee, and in charge of bills that would regulate the internet. And then enjoy a frisson of pleasure recalling that the elections of 2006 really did do some good, because Stevens ain't calling the shots when it comes to the internets anymore.
