Sandra Day O'Connor says the D-word

[Dictatorship, that is.]

"It takes a lot of degeneration before a country falls into dictatorship, but we should avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings."

She said it in a speech at Georgetown on Thursday, but I didn't hear a thing about it until I saw it in The Guardian today. I would think it would have been all over the papers, but Nina Totenberg from NPR was the only reporter there to cover the speech, and after her story came out on Friday nobody else picked it up.

I'm just doing my part to spread the word. I hope that all of us who fret about a slide into fascism (or whatever our own, homegrown version would be called) are just exaggerating, but there's more reason to worry every day. Not only would it suck to live under fascism, the worst thing would be all the knee-jerk USA-bashers getting to think that they were right about us.

  • Shudder with me

    OK, so abandoned buildings, especially houses, are a fear of mine. For some reason I like scaring myself with the pictures people post on…

  • Wah!

    I phoned in a voice post last night, but it didn't show up right away so I thought I'd wait until morning. Now it's still not there! Is it lost…

  • I know it's wrong but

    I can't help wanting this shirt. I could do without the Hello Titties though.
