Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Real life "Brokedown Palace"
I had never heard of this case until today, but it's straight from that Clair Danes movie. Australian Schapelle Corby will be pronounced innocent or guilty, and sentenced tomorrow in Indonesia for alledgedly smuggling 9 lbs of Marijuana into that country. She says Australian baggage handlers must have planted it as part of a failed domestic smuggling operation.
If found guilty tomorrow she will either be sentenced to life in prison or death. And the conditions in the prison she's currently in sound appaling.
It's too late now to do anything. Just hope for a fair verdict.
