  • A little bit about my least favorite subject ... Me

    I get these e-mailed quizzes from time to time. I always hit the delete button without even looking at them. But not this time.

    The point of a column is to give our readers a little insight into how our minds work. What better way to do that than with a quiz? Allow me to apologize for some of my answers in advance.

    1. Were you named after anyone? My father, James, and my grandfather Ray.

    2. When was the last time you cried? Real men don't cry. So, probably five minutes ago.

    3. Do you like your handwriting? Yes, because only I can read it.

  • Democracy or hypocrisy?

    Four years ago this month, as a staffer for Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, I sat at the back of the Senate Chamber and listened to Republicans denounce efforts to filibuster President Bush's judicial appointments. One after another, they sermonized about the body's Constitutional, even moral, obligation to give each nominee an "up or down vote."

    At the time, Sen. Mitch McConnell said, "regardless of party, any President's judicial nominees, after full debate, deserve a simple up-or-down vote."
