    Face palm.

    I live in the Boston area.  I am proud to know one of the spectators who rushed in and helped the victims to safety, which is the ultimate way to express sympathy.  

    Your negative remark doesn't phase me one iota from coming to Ms. Radack's defense, who I also admire for her courage to speak truth to power and defend our Constitution, the most patriotic thing a lawyer can do.

    To quote Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice:

    There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me.''

      which cannot accommodate 2 trains of thought... rancor and disrespect is all they seem to know here on the topic of drones and NDAA. and it's telling that they can't even fathom whatsoever the scenario that Jesselyn puts forth ever happening, even under a GOP president a decade down the line. they're too busy doing micro that they seem to forget the macro...

      i'm sure they'll all come around once Obama leaves office though. sigh...
