Jaguars won, Seattle lost & each NY team lost, the NYJ in painful fashion. Overall liked the Joan Biskupic Sotomayor book -- in fact, wanted a bit more (e.g., it mostly skipped the hearings!), a nice crisp read. Getting a lot of love from the Court watching community.

One response here in particular felt for those who thought about it and aren't self-interested it is blatantly simple to oppose criminal punishments for drug use. Such overkill bothers me -- people aren't just wrong, they are either biased and/or unthinking. People can be wrong without this, especially for complex questions. Likewise, they (such as "conservatives") are usually not simply bad people. Strong opposition is fair, but sometimes people go too far.

The Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari took part in a joke segment for the Daily Show, not knowing it would be used as part of the "case" against him by Iranian authorities after the 2009 elections. Jon Stewart later directed the akin to a novel account of Bahari's four months of hell in prison, a film coming out next month entitled Rosewater.

The NYT review was mixed as was the Rotten Tomatoes & the leads were intriguing. But, Hilary Swank has had great/serviceable/bad & this is more in the last column. The actresses deserve better material in this MLS drama though hey look Ed Begley, Jr. has a neat cameo.
