UPDATE: It's no Fluke that Georgetown University President John DeGioia defended law student Sandra Fluke (who was cursed at by rush limbaugh on his radio show last week) this way:
“She provided a model of civil discourse,” he said in a letter to the school. “This expression of conscience was in the tradition of the deepest values we share as a people. One need not agree with her substantive position to support her right to respectful free expression.”
Therein lies the difference between how an educated man (President DeGioia) and an uneducated lunk of hate spewing miasma (limbaugh) handles their philosophical differences with a courageous female law student.
SUNDAY UPDATE: COLD FRONT ON THE WAY! Bundle up tonight as temps will dip to 50 and perhaps 45. Also, chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. From Monday until Thursday midday temperatures will struggle to break 75, and in the evenings it will be a cool 55-60. Winter's last blast hits South Florida.
Coming Monday on your favourite blog: "The End Of Innocence".
Which is the best? Discuss.
Rumpole notes GFIII is underrated and never gets the credit it deserves. Also, you haven't seen the movies unless you see them on the big screen. It makes a difference.
