I got _some_ work done today, too.

PSA: wisdomeagle arrived safely.

elliptical, interval program:
1mi @ 11:16min
2mi @ 22:46min
3mi @ 34:26min
3.90mi @ 45min

ESPN this morning was more interesting than the incessant N. Korea coverage  Aww, Bulldogs!  But I even found the talk about the NBA draft interesting.)  Dude, when I've been on the elliptical for a half an hour and you're still saying that just "minutes" ago such-and-such was announced?

Waterfalls in Manhattan.  (Yes, CNN played the TLC song.)  I couldn't help wondering how much energy it took to run them -- how eco-friendly is this?  I didn't see a link to an article on CNN.com, but a quick GoogleNews got me one news stories which mentioned the "Gates," and I thought, "Well at least these are actually attractive."

***

Heller decision (right to bear arms) came down today.  157 pages (more than half of which is the dissents).  Dude, I only recently finished reading the 134-page Boumediene (habeas corpus) decision -- and I need to go back and reread stuff to understand better.  Possibly 2nd Amendment stuff will read more accessibly than habeas corpus stuff.  (Though in beginning to skim the commentaries, it looks like I should read Miller too -- is this really the full-text version of that?)

[This didn't come down until about 10:30am Eastern, so I can't fault CNN for not saying anything about it.]

***

CAUMC group tonight we discussed "just war" theory etc.  Afterward, we talked briefly about the challenges of disagreeing while still maintaining a "safe space" and there seemed to be a consensus that we would all appreciate more disagreement.  Someone half-jokingly suggested having an "un-safe space" night, and Meredith pointed out that I'm scheduled to lead next week.  So we may gchat tomorrow about possible topics.
