First Raich, then Kelo. Two major Supreme Court decisions in a row in which I side with Justice Thomas, not something I'd expected. I mean, how many med-marijuana supporters would have expected to be siding with Thomas back when his name was always attached to Anita Hill's?
Props to Thomas and the other dissenters in Kelo who respect your right to own your own home without it being under constant threat of being taken by the state so someone can put their private business there.

The other week I was nearly lucky enough to meet the highly talented French author Michel Houellebecq at the event mentioned in this article. He was promoting the new translation of his older work: H.P. Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life (published by Believer Books). His novels include Whatever, The Elementary Particles, and Platform (English titles).
