I spent part of this morning educating myself about habeas corpus and the Boumediene v. Bush ruling (including the dissents) -- though I'm not sure any of it is sticking. Though I hadn't realized about the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which helps me understand better why liberals are treating this as such a big sweeping important ruling.
[Edit: Commentaries I've been reading: Instapundit, dKos diary, Orin Kerr]
Jonah was 40 minutes late meeting me for dinner, so I made a significant dent in reading the ruling.
We ate at Mr. Crepe. I got a strawberry and Nutella crepe. Mmm, Nutella. (I was talking to MaryAlice over lunch, and she mentioned she's never been to a restaurant that specializes in crepes. I suggested maybe we should go to Arrow St. for lunch sometime this summer.) The cashier woman said, "I like your necklace," and I said, "Thanks! It's from Boston Pride last year," and explained about how I had recently re-found it, and she agreed that it was fortuitous timing.
Among other things, Jonah and I talked about Weeds, and I found it interesting that I was the one talking about Heylia since he's the one who did post-colonial lit studies in college.
TOMORROW: Boston Pride.
Substitute bus service will replace regular Red Line train service between Park Street and Kendall. (I plan to take the 88 to Lechmere and then the Green Line to Copley for the interfaith service at Old South.)
