Quick Weekend Tidbits
Today's bloggerJust had to post two things I came across this morning.

First, for all of you who had your hearts broken by not getting to meet Al Gore last month (and for those of us who just can't get enough), MoveOn is doing a conference call with Al to discuss the movie this Sunday. Click here for more info.

Also, in reference to Carly's alarming post on Sunday, here's a hopeful sign. Apparently, it's not just Carly who has been anxiously watching the situation. Legislation tightening the immigration laws and labor laws which would impact the Northern Marianas Islands has passed the Senate repeatedly for ten years, only to be blocked in the House by DeLay. WHAT A BAD GUY! So on the very day of his departure, House Dems have filed the legislation to eliminate the legal conditions which let these monsters exploit other human beings. What better way to celebrate the end of an incredibly bad era. Here's the LA Times article.

Related, more cyncical note: DeLay is apparently shopping for a house in Virginia. Why would he need a house in Virginia??? Speculation is he's getting a job as...wait for it...a lobbyist. Boo. Hiss.

You have to be kidding me. Tom Delay as a lobbist, OH Please! Give me a Break!(insert the big eye roll here) Why can't he just go back to Texas and crawl underneathe a rock or a house or something. Doesn't he get that he is leaving office because he has been indicted for embuzzlment of all things? Isn't there legislation now pending that a Legislature would have to wait for a certain period of time before becoming a lobbist? I guess that means old Tom would lobby against that bill so that he doesn't become unemployed.

So what you're saying is, if any of us were contemplating a vacation to USNMI, now's the time to get it done, eh?
