Sadly, Japan also has one of the lowest birthrates in the world, and hence the most rapidly aging populations.

I'll second Neal's list. There's trailer for "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" at http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi585958425/ Isn't that the one that climaxes at a roller coaster?

Them! in 1954 about giant mutant ants loose in the L.A. storm sewers scared the heck of me when I was 6. The only ones that topped that were The Blob (with Steve McQueen!) and the first Alien movie.

The non-delegation doctrine is one of the constitutional principles the abandonment of which by our courts has offended me for a long time. The courts seem to see the original idea that only the legislature should establish policy as too narrow a limit on their own power. The federal government seems to like being slipshod and dishonest. The courts seem to like the idea that their job is to trim and pad policy through "interpretation," rather than strike down overly broad, vague and ambiguous laws and make Congress say what it means, no more or less. How refreshing would that be to see the courts exercise some restraint in the face of a congressional invitation to overreach? Well, don't expect any of that from Elena Kagan.

So much for a government of laws and not of men. If this was thoughtless teenaged vandals, that's one thing. But if it's some atheist(s) upset about the ruling, They ought to remember that the kind of society they seem to want, one where everybody can take the law into his own hands, would not be kind to them. Would they go deface a mosque or post pictures of Mohammed?

I've thought many times that the best description for people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton is "carpetbaggers."

Why does he qualify it with, "if I lived in Massachusetts?" If he's willing to vote illegally one way, what's to keep him from misrepresenting where he lives?

I'm afraid that our long period of unprecedented prosperity may be ending, and I'm worried about the debt being passed to my children and grandchildren.
