Political quick hits

"Democratic" governor Kathleen Blanco signed a bill banning abortion this week. It's meaningless unless the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade but it's still news. Way to play to your base governor.

She also signed a bill making it a crime to sell violent video games to minors. A Baton Rouge judge quickly issued an order blocking the bill. Looks like parents in Louisiana will have to actually pay attention to what their kids are doing - at least for a little while longer.

We really need to go register to vote soon.

Speaking of people I'm never going to vote for - I just learned that William Jefferson is our congressman.
