- Whew. We're still here.
- Republican priorities:
There were at least 20 members notably absent from the hastily called GOP conference where House Speaker John Boehner announced he didn't have the votes for Plan B.
These lawmakers had something else in mind, rather than listening to Boehner say they didn't have the votes and that there was no more action until after Christmas.
These lawmakers were in the mood for gumbo.
- The real comeback kid? Hillary.
- Considering the national trend of late, maybe it's time for the DEA to find a new hobby:
Prospective pot shop owners be warned: New England’s top narcotics cop says federal agents won’t hesitate to come down on dispensaries that pop up next year under the Bay State’s medical marijuana law.
John J. Arvanitis, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New England Division, told the Herald in an exclusive interview that the feds will probe pot pharmacies as they see fit.
“Marijuana is still a controlled substance,” Arvanitis said. “DEA is committed to investigating individuals who are involved in the distribution of marijuana. DEA goes to where the information and evidence take it. If we become aware that individuals are involved in marijuana distribution, we’ll investigate it.” [...]
Arvanitis’ warning didn’t seem to worry John Napoli, who is hoping to open a dispensary at his downtown hydroponics shop, Boston Gardener.
“Before it was banned in the 1930s, cannabis was available at every pharmacy in Massachusetts,” he said. “I think we’re headed back in that direction. The DEA will eventually follow the people’s lead.”
- Meet the Goosinator:
Nobody's sure where geese hazed from Denver's parks may resettle.
But Denver Parks and Recreation managers' faces lit up when the Goosinator, a roaring, orange robot predator with crazed yellow eyes, chased the birds from City Park on Thursday.
The Goosinator's inventors say what makes it a goose's worst nightmare is that it zips as fast as 25 mph across land, water, ice and snow — right to where the birds aren't used to being chased.
- Offered without comment:
A Kentucky man lost his bid Friday to force a doctor to pay damages for removing a cancer-riddled section of his penis during what was scheduled to be a simple circumcision.
The Kentucky Court of Appeals found that a jury correctly concluded that 66-year-old Phillip Seaton of Waddy consented to allow Dr. John Patterson to perform any procedure deemed necessary during the Oct. 19, 2007, surgery.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, we were witnesses to the unraveling of the conservative coalition, and just maybe the Gop itself. Greg Dworkin reviewed recent polling on brand problem for the Republicans. A message problem, not a messenger problem. Then, Republican rigidity: they're simultaneously refusing to compromise on guns, taxes, the Fiscal Thingy, and pretty much everything. Are they really a political party? Then, more on "constitutional hardball," and how the Bush administration used it to screw things up, maybe forever.
