Well, two and a half.
.5. I was at a meeting this morning and when I bragged on Rachel from Women’s Health News blogging for Our Bodies, Ourselves (at the appropriately titles Our Bodies, Our Blog), there was an audible gasp. It was a little like how Bono’s friends must feel when they’re all “Oh, yeah, Bono’s going to come by and have a beer with us later” and the rest of the people in the pub faint.
1. Over at the Nashvillest, they caught Sheriff Hall making a gaff about comparable cities to Nashville. But the more interesting bit of insight is a little farther down the news story over at Channel Five.
Federal agents told the sheriff’s office to detain most of these criminals and put them on the long path to getting a bond hearing criminals are first taken to a detention facility in Alabama then to Louisiana for a bond hearing.
“The whole process takes about three weeks,” said immigration attorney Sean Lewis.
He believes the long-distance process needs to change.
“It’s a mess, and we’re talking about someone with a civil violation being detained physically,” he said.
2. I don’t mean to be all “Aunt B., Girl Detective” but how could Robin Smith not know who tipped off the TNDems and/or Kleinheider to the existence of her email to the Governor? She sent the email to the Governor, Lisa Lancaster (who’s on the Human Rights Board), Lydia Lenker, and an email address Kleinheider blacked out (see in this post where he says “Read the full letter here.”) This isn’t some difficult logic puzzle. Robin Smith knows to whom she sent the email. Kleinheider revealed the email addresses of everyone the email went to except one person. So, logically, one would assume that was his source, who he’s not revealing. But Robin Smith knows who that person is. So, how can she run around talking about this like it’s some great mystery? Am I missing some important detail here?
Also, I’m going to add a 2.5 to say about Christian’s comment over at Pith, “Exactly.”
Edited to Add: My sources send me this. I don’t know what to make of it, but here it is.
