Man, life has been hectic lately.

First, and most important, is the collusion between the National Archives and the government to "reclassify" declassified documents without telling anyone. So much for impartiality.

Secondly, and also importantly, but in a much more positive way: Reading Rainbow may be resurrected!

Chuck Klosterman wrote an excellent article on the whole Barry Bonds/steroids/home run record issue. It's worth a read, even if you're not all that into baseball.

In an effort to break with English tradition, Irish judges are no longer going to be called "your lordship" or "your honor," but just plain "judge." I'm not sure if they still wear wigs. Even the English are reconsidering that aspect, apparently. (Incidentally, while trying to figure out if Irish judges wear wigs, I found a great 'judges of the world' website, with photos!)

Tomorrow: links from others!
