HIATUS is the name of the game. Happy Thanksgiving.

After three years in detention, Jose Padilla (a.k.a. Abu Abdullah Al Mujahir) has been charged of his crimes against the United States. This victory for justice and the constitutional system that the government - with our backing - has tried to tear to shreds for these past few years gives me hope that we have finally begun to fight terrorism after all.

A copy of the indictment can be found here.

Did you hear? The massive conspiracy of evil leftists are busily rewriting history! They want to kill your children! They want to help terrorism! They're against America, they hate America, they are the scourge of civilized society. Their ideas are stale, unattractive, and tired. They hate capitalism! They they they they they ...

I'll never buy it, not for a second.

With Thanksgiving two weeks ahead, and the holydays soon after ... no, that's too much. Anyway, I recommend Marty Scorsese's documentary, "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan," which is really something. A lot of concert footage, archival stuff. Well done. Will he leave this earth unrewarded? I'm referring to Scorsese, and the unconscionable lack of Oscar awards given to him.

As for Dylan, I have seen him in concert. One time. April 5, 2004, at American University. When he played, he didn't look at the audience, which was strange. Mostly new stuff; the old good ones were almost unrecognizable. Why "No Direction Home" had to be a PBS television thing is completely beyond me, regardless of the length. It doesn't matter. It's a great doc.

In a move certain to not change shit, Denver residents voted for Initiative 100, which legalizes adult possession of wacky tobacky up to a whole ounce. But, according to a buzzkill story printed up in the Rocky Mountain News, nothing will at all change because Denver happens to be right in the middle of Colorado, whose state law still bans the drug as illegal. According to Mitch Morrissey, who is the District Attorney in the city, "'It's still illegal in the city of Denver, because Denver's in Colorado.'" Thanks for the echo. Well, anyway, thanks for nothing.
