Apparently more people can name the seven dwarves than can name two Supreme Court justices. This helps explain why, all day yesterday, the lead story on was about some guy who says he killed some little girl ten years ago, and the story about the NSA's warrantless wiretapping being ruled illegal was relegated to the number two slot.

Jeez, you people.


you know, if the justices had a catchy song I would be able to name them too, probably. my theory is backed up by my ability to name all nine of santa's reindeer (catchy rudolf song) but not all seven deadly sins.

Come on, the seven deadly signs are easy: gluttony, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and Darryl Strawberry.

i can name 4 dwarves, no justices, and 6 reindeer. this is sad.

Remember that scene in Seven, where Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman spend a relaxing evening together at Shea Stadium, and Daryl Strawberry goes 3-for-4 with a home run? It still gives me goosebumps.

Apparently, Bush says that people who side with the judge on warrantless wiretapping just don't understand the nature of the world in which we live today. I guess that means somehow external events have changed whether judges should still look to the Constitution when deciding if government action is... constitutional. The fact that some Fox News junkies out there actually agree with that makes me more ill than the fact that a 10 year old murder is leading a judge actually defending my civil rights. My bet for the things the average American can name are (in order): 1) the cast of "Friends", 2) the seven dwarves, 3) santa's reindeer, 4) the seven deadly sins, 5) any 2 current Supreme Court justices, 6)even half the rights covered by the US Bill of Rights... and even if they can, it seems some he's willing to trade away those rights for his "safety". I've been in Kauai during this whole no-liquid-carry-ons/London "terror plot" fiasco and everyone I've talked to about it is more concerned about their "safety" than the process that creates or constitutionality of the restrictions and powers the government has deemed necessary to deal with the "new world". They need this. I miss the Bay Area... and bars that stay open past 9pm.

Also, 30% of Americans can't tell you what year 9/11 happened. Jesus.
