Libby begins to get measured. Yes, the jury is deliberating over Libby’s case.

Libby is charged with two counts of perjury, two counts of making false statements and one count of obstruction of justice. He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.25 million in fines if found guilty.

I doubt he will get anything clost to the above quote.
Several NIN fans out there may enjoy this. A new album is coming out and this website gives a lot of the background regarding the album. There are also some mp3 files that have been found in “various” bathrooms across Europe. Those files have been circulating for a bit. They are new songs from his album. – Trey is credited for giving me this information.

NIN is also releasing a new DVD. I’ve pre-ordered mine. It was a damn good concert, and i can’t wait till i get a copy of mine.

US District Court of Appeals in Washington decided 2-1 that federal courts do not have the authority to hear cases from detainees held at the remote US Navy base in Guantanamo, Cuba. “Federal courts have no jurisdiction in these cases,” the ruling said.

Well then that means those individuals don’t have access to our legal system and so they fall outside the bounds of having legal rights, at least according to our judicial system. This all stems from the Millitary Commissions act that was signed by Bush to “cut” a lot of a red tape and reinforce his beliefs that “enemy combatants” cannot have access to the rights we afford our citizens/illegal immigrants. This article gives a better explanation.
