And we're off!

Nothing like a snowy departure from the Northeast... Assuming our flight wasn't cancelled. Excitement reigns over anxiety in the collective Jephir stomach, along with another dose of mefloquine and some tasty sushi (thanks mom!).

And just when Connecticut was becoming a better place to be.

Oh, and screw you Texas!

Gotta love scalia:

In a dissent, Scalia decried the decision, arguing that there has been no clear trend of declining juvenile executions to justify a growing consensus against the practice.

"The court says in so many words that what our people's laws say about the issue does not, in the last analysis, matter: 'In the end our own judgment will be brought to bear on the question of the acceptability of the death penalty,' he wrote in a 24-page dissent.

"The court thus proclaims itself sole arbiter of our nation's moral standards," Scalia wrote.

See ya!
