I CANNOT READ REPLIES. "NFL" (NotForLaffy) appreciated

1/...McBrien:

At 2:35 p.m. we have audio again, but still no video, and we hear Merchan say "Thank you, please be seated."

Merchan welcomes the jurors and starts by apologizing for how chilly it is in the courtroom.

Video is back on, and both sides are seated in the same seats as this morning

Merchan proceeds to read the boilerplate instructions for voir dire. Reminder: 30 mins per side

Well that was quick. By 51-48-1, Senate votes that article one of the impeachment is unconstitutional because it contains no high crimes or misdemeanors. In agreement were all Democrats and all three Independents. Sen. Murkowski (R-AK) voted “present”.

This is the best I've found so far. Given how Abramoff and DeLay ended up I assume eventually someone will be in jail and/or disgraced.

I'm sick of justifying ethical behavior in terms of profit. We use phrases like "adding alt-text brings more customers to your site" or "protected bike lanes increase revenue for local businesses."

You should add alt-text descriptions to images because it helps people.

We need to build bike lanes because it makes cities safer and more accessible.

Reduce carbon emissions because it's the right thing to do! Discussing these things in purely economic terms misses the point.

I still hear people arguing that prosecuting a former president sets a “dangerous precedent.”

The truly dangerous precedent would be to establish that presidents are above the law.

Republicans keep praising Medicare Advantage (the privatized option for Medicare), but doctors and hospitals are raising alarms about denied claims and reduced payments. These predatory Medicare Advantage plans leave already vulnerable patients with more cruel choices, and Congress must take action.
