Danger: Sign-Holding Hippie Ahead

I doubt I’d find much to agree on with Brett Bursey, should we ever meet: BRETT BURSEY will be back in court again, fighting the forces of reaction, on June 24th. The veteran protester was arrested last October for trespassing at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport as he held a sign (

Help the Lileks Clan

James Lileks has clarified his ominous posting from yesterday: his wife was let go from her job. Given the densitity of legal minds in the blogosphere, it doesn’t seem unrealistic to think that somebody reading this might be able to help, so: Anyone need a lawyer? Three years Department of Justice in DC, eight years […]

Patio Chick Update

Martin responds! Observe: “It’s going to be a long vigil because I don’t even know her name.” Note the masterfully studied ambiguity! One can know a lady without knowing her name, if you know what I mean. I suppose it all depends on if you know what the definition of know is…

Martin’s Chick Watch: Day 2

It’s now Day 2 of the Leggy Chick Watch for Patio Pundit. Mr. Devon’s office has yet to respond with any explanation, and so we are left to wonder: who is she? Is there some kind of coverup involved? (There certainly isn’t on her part). And oh, yeah: Martin’s also got more good Democratic contender […]

Lair on Hatch & The Media

Lair says: “A note from N.Z. Bear sparked this little brainfart, so hold your nose for a moment while I wave my hand furiously and light a match…” Yeah. I have that effect on people. Lair’s post is part of his ongoing outstanding coverage (journalistic shorthand for “nailing to the wall”) of Senator Hatch’s tomfoolery, […]

Martin Doesn’t Recall

Martin is puzzled by the recall efforts around Governor Davis: “I can’t stand Gray Davis, but this is ridiculous. He was elected and that’s that. This recall thing is wacky beyond belief.” Why wacky, Martin? There’s a legal process in place to elect someone; there’s also a legal process in place to recall them. Unlike […]
