Because women don’t smoke pot, part 2

[Megan] Fox admits to trying various drugs but didn’t like her experiences under the influence. She tells Maxim magazine, “I’ve done drugs, and that’s how I know I don’t like them.

“I wanted to try several things and make an informed decision, but I didn’t enjoy anything other than marijuana. I don’t even think of it as a drug–it should be legalized.

“Cocaine is back with a vengeance–everyone in every club is doing drugs. Celebrities aren’t trying to hide it, except when people have camera phones.

“I know about five people who aren’t on drugs today, and I’m one of them.”

Well at least we know…

National Globe & Mail (via digby and C&L):

Senior judges from North America and Europe were in the midst of a panel discussion about torture and terrorism law, when a Canadian judge’s passing remark – “Thankfully, security agencies in all our countries do not subscribe to the mantra ‘What would Jack Bauer do?’ ” – got the legal bulldog in [Justice Antonin Scalia] barking.

The conservative jurist stuck up for Agent Bauer, arguing that fictional or not, federal agents require latitude in times of great crisis. “Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles. … He saved hundreds of thousands of lives,” Judge Scalia said. Then, recalling Season 2, where the agent’s rough interrogation tactics saved California from a terrorist nuke, the Supreme Court judge etched a line in the sand.

“Are you going to convict Jack Bauer?” Judge Scalia challenged his fellow judges. “Say that criminal law is against him? ‘You have the right to a jury trial?’ Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? I don’t think so.”

Well at least we know what Antonin Scalia thinks about jury nullification.

I think voir dire would eliminate all prospective jurors with knowledge of the documentary program ‘24‘.

I have never watched this program, but I do enjoy the history program ‘Battlestar Galactica’ a great deal.

Bong Hits 4 ONDCP

Thehim:

I swear to god, it’s like there’s a contest inside the Bush Administration to see who can be the most spectacular hypocrite. At this point, I wouldn’t even be surprised if everyone in the ONDCP office sits around taking bong hits all day.
