Republicans Continue To Project
This sums up quite well the absurd Republican attacks on Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination.
The bottom line is, these charges of racism are pitiful projections by angry white men who know the battle against Sotomayor was lost before it began, but who have to continue pandering to their fans to remain relevant.

Obama calls for Suu Kyi release

Memorial Day With Donna Reed
Dear Donna – A Pinup So Swell She Kept G.I. Mail This is a interesting and timely article about a shoe box full of touching letters from G.I.s to Donna Reed during WWII. Whenever I think of Donna Reed, I always think of her role as Mary Hatch Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life. Mary Bailey always represented a sort of idea woman for me. Also, I didn’t know that later in life that she became an antiwar activist and supported Eugene McCarthy in 1972. The picture below is from this wonderful Flickr set – Bathing Beauties, who had their share of letters from G.I.s too.
