(Now, speaking of Supervisor Eric Mar, was he really “made to look like a fool on national television,” recently? Nope. E. M. knows exactly what he’s doing. And hey, K.G., don’t you wish you were a Supervisor on national television talking about your pet issue? Oh, that’s right, E. M. is electable and you, at least so far, are not. O.K. fine. But keep reaching for those rainbows, Ken Garcia.)

Bon courage, Starbucks volunteers!

*Well, as far as the Feds are concerned (is Boner really that orange, IRL? Replace Color; click anywhere on the face; saturation slider to the left, a way to the left; Save) it’s open, anyway.

At the Department of Justice, Yoo played a large and controversial role in shaping the Bush administration’s policy in the war on terrorism, arguing that prisoner of war status under the Geneva Conventions does not apply to “enemy combatants.” He further asserted executive authority to undertake “enhanced interrogation techniques” regarded as torture by the current Justice Department. Yoo will trace the history of presidential power.
