# Doug Thompson - Customer service - Mr. Thompson lauds Canon for their service of his broken digital camera. [claire]

# Gigabuist at The Claire Files Forum - Senate Blocks Patriot Act Extension - discussion on this AP article at Breitbart. Frist couldn't get the sixty votes he needed to stop Russ Feingold's filibuster. Good. Damn good. GeekWithA.45 has more comments and links. Google News links thousands of stories.

# Andy Steadman at No Treason - Cory Maye got lucky - Cory Maye is on death row, but, unlike many other individuals who didn't immediately roll over when the cops broke into their houses in the dead of night, he's still breathing. [notreason]

# Kathryn A Graham at America in Denial - Bill of Rights Day - Ms. Graham bemoans the passing of America and asks how to put teeth in the Bill of Rights the next time around. My answer: don't authorize any government of any kind except unanimous consent of all affected parties.
