Bushism of the Day:

“It is clear our nation is reliant upon big foreign oil. More and more of our imports come from overseas.”

Told you so.

And in other Supreme Court news, Casey Martin will get the ultimate decision in his case against the PGA to be able to use a cart during tournament events. For some reason, the melding of sports and courts is interesting to me; that’s why the current trial of Marty McSorley for slashing Donald Brashear during an NHL game is also keeping my attention.

OK, something’s definitely afoot — now, I’ve won a TiVo! The essay I wrote can be read here. I am so damn happy right now I could cry; I was just salivating over my sister’s TiVo this past weekend. (I now join the likes of Jason, Wendell, Ben, and many other people. On the MetaFilter thread alone, way more than 10 people won one. Strange.)

Much drug ado at the 2000 Olympics. First, C.J. Hunter appears to have tested positive for steroids four times in the past year, and the story breaks during the Olympics despite the fact that he’s not a contestant. Then, Romanian gymnast Andreea Raducan loses her all-around gold medal due to having taken pseudoephedrine, and her entire team surrenders all their medals in protest.

Of course, now that I’ve won, I’ll need a few good websites on how to hack my TiVo to add capacity

If some company does come up with a Palm-based GSM phone, then I’ll be the first in line to buy it. I love my Palm, and I love my GSM cellphone, and a Frankencombo of the two would make me happy happy.

Again, I reiterate that the IOC ban on athletes publishing diaries during the Olympics is inane. Think how popular a legitimate U.S. athlete’s weblog would be during these two weeks…

For those thinking of voting for Nader, Bruce Shapiro has two words to make you think about your vote, and why it could shape this country more than you think: Supreme Court.
