Bush campaigned that he would nominate conservative justices.  He won the election he should do just that.  Why should he compromise?  Elections mean something and they have consequences.  One of the privileges of being the CinC is that HE gets to nominate justices...not whiney democrats who lost.

At this point in the war, Japan was on the verge of surrender and the US administration knew it. 

ummm, Japan didn't even surrender after they knew we had the bomb AND we used it on them.  We had to do it again!!  Japan was not even close to surrender and using the bomb did biring a horrible war to a quick end (and yes, it saved tens of thousands of american lives)

On another note, does anyone really want to bring these guys into our civilian justice system? 

Are we really going to have a trial, call in the US soldiers to testify about their actions on the battlefield and what they saw and how they captured the enemy?  What if the soldiers did not marandize (sp) him before questioning?  Speaking of questioning...should we give them civilian attorneys before any takes place. 

Do we want to give a propaganda platform to these extremists? Can they sue our soldiers for their actions?

Just some questions.

They called me yesterday as well with questions "Are you still coming?" "Did you get our email about orientation?"

I think they are trying to see how many open seats they may have.

Good luck!!

FORT MYERS Florida's university presidents are fighting a bill that would make it harder for students to gain residency status in the state preventing them from eventually paying lower in-state tuition.

The bill (SB 2264) got nearly unanimous approval in both chambers of the legislature last month, passing 39-0 in the Senate and 117-1 in the House. It could save taxpayers as much as $28.2 million in tuition from students who are mistakenly classified as residents, according to a state report.

 But university presidents said Wednesday that it would negatively affect their ability to recruit graduate students, who often rely on gaining residency status after attending school for one year.

The bill would require students to have lived in Florida for one year before their first day at a state university. If they are already enrolled in a university, they could gain residency status only after working full time for one year and not attending school during that time.

Gov. Jeb Bush has yet to sign the bill and asked presidents for their recommendation on what to do.

"Veto it," was the response given Wednesday during the State University Presidents Association meeting at Florida Gulf Coast University.

In lieu of the bill, the presidents said they want the Board of Governors to adopt a rule that would apply the language only to undergraduate students.

The presidents association's meeting preceded today's Board of Governors meeting.

I sent most of the forms on friday of last week.  Are you talking about the consent to release grades form?  That's standard stuff. Basically it says that the school can notify the law journals and MC teams that you qualify for them.  Schools cannot release grades to anyone without your permission, so you are just signing a waiver for these in-school organizations. 

Have you looked at housing in Tally?
