Confirmed!

So I saw that today (Thursday), the Senate confirmed the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for our next justice in the Supreme Court. I like this picture they posted of her in Yahoo with a Freddie Blassie-type pose:


I think someone had just asked her the question, "If George W. Bush were standing in front of you right this very moment, what would you do?"

I see lots of unflattering pictures of people plastered across newspapers and news pages on the web - they have got to be deliberately chosen. I mean, don't you think there would be kinder pictures available to use?

Now look at these picture taken from the Wall Street Journal of Kenneth Lewis (Bank of America). You might as well draw horns on his head, lol..


Speaking of "lol," I was reading an article today about how confusing it is trying to keep track of all the acronyms being bandied about on text messaging and e-mails, etc., and trying to figure out what some of them mean.

The article closed with an anecdote from someone who knew of a woman whose friend's mother had died. The woman texted her friend a sympathy message:

“I’m so sorry to hear about your mother passing away. LOL. Let me know if there’s anything I can do.”

The friend thought that "LOL" meant "lots of love."

Going back to the court nominations and confirmations, I found a video that I feel gives a pretty good idea of what really goes on behind closed doors in our government (it's a bit long but please watch it):
