Bid to remove DeLay’s name from ballot tossed

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Monday rejected a request by Texas Republicans to block an appeals court ruling that says former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay’s name must appear on the November ballot.

Antonin Scalia, people. Clearly, an activist judge.

Daily SF/Writing Blog Reading List

Because it amuses me to do so, allow me to now share the writing and sf-related blogs through which I trundle on a daily basis, arranged in absolutely no order whatsoever. These blogs (and the people who write them) are on the list for varying reasons including but not limited to: They’re friends, they write interesting stuff, they’re useful, they’re enemies and I track their every move, they owe me money, I desire them intensely, I put them on the list without thinking, and the ever-popular I honestly can’t remember what possessed me to bookmark this page.

Please allow me to note that if you’re not on this list, that does not mean I don’t like you/don’t read you. You’ll note that I have Patrick Nielsen Hayden’s friends list as one of the links; the list there includes two hundred forty five LiveJournals/syndicated feeds, so if you’re on his friends list, I probably don’t have you otherwise linked. Also, there are lots of journals I read occasionally but not daily. Also also, I’ve been recently accreting journals I read at a disturbingly high pace, so perhaps you’ll be on the next update. In any event, please don’t take your presence/lack of presence as indicative of my true feelings about you. You know I love you.

I’ve also added this current list to the sidebar; I’m sure I’ll add to that list again at some point in the nebulous future.

In any event, here’s the list:
