What's in your bag?

Or what's in your wallet?

Today we're going to play, "What's in your browser?"

And in my case, that's Firefox.

  • New York Times, Why This Court Keeps Rebuking This President:
    “The most important thing we do is not doing,” Justice Louis D. Brandeis once said of the Supreme Court’s abiding humility, its overwhelming preference to allow the people, through their elected representatives, to govern themselves.

  • Pilot-on-Line, Lucas's new hotel proposal deserves old reaction:
    The latest version of state Sen. Louise Lucas' proposed hotel and conference center in Portsmouth is better than the original. But city officials should remain leery of the project and, in particular, the prospect of getting involved in its financing.

  • The New York Times (again...), Gay Couples Find Marriage Is a Mixed Bag:
    Four years after Massachusetts became the first state to allow gay couples to marry, there have been blissful unions, painful divorces and everything in between.

  • The Sun, Charity rowers ocean rescue:
    FOUR British rowers have been rescued after their boat capsized on a charity attempt to cross the Atlantic Ocean. . . . were two weeks into their journey from New York to their native Isles of Scilly when their craft tipped over in heavy seas 420 miles east of Cape Cod.

  • The Herald-Mail, Saint James School graduates 42:
    For their last night on campus, Saint James School’s class of 2008 spent time at a teacher’s house Saturday before going to Waffle House at midnight. Maura McCormack, of Hagerstown, said she and her classmates went to the restaurant to talk about moments some of them have shared together for five years.

  • The New York Times (again, mind you...), Tiny Town: Washington After a Fall:
    There are certain days when you can feel the air sucking out of Washington’s giant hot-air balloon, and Friday was one of them.

  • Dallas Morning News, Wal-Mart and Penney roll out casual furniture
    Wal-Mart's new Canopy and J.C. Penney's new Linden Street home furnishings brands don't have the name recognition of an Ikea or a Pottery Barn, but they're going after the same customers.

  • Navy Times, Rule may endanger attorney-client privilege
    Legal experts are alarmed over a recently approved Pentagon directive they say infringes upon the right of protected communications between military defense attorneys and their clients in uniform.

    “The bar is very serious about keeping peoples’ secrets, and communications to and from clients,” said Eugene Fidell, a Washington attorney and president of the National Institute of Military Justice. “And in this day and age, a lot of that is done by e-mail — particularly in the military environment. And if you don’t have the kind of assurance that nobody’s peeking, that’s very disturbing.”

  • Thomas Jackson's Coast Guard Report, NEWS FLASH: Information Flow Is Coming:
    I was notified to today that "C" will begin the release of information and documents related to his case. C was notified that the gentleman who had filed the unsubstantiated claim that started Coast Guard Civil Rights making to the headlines, has passed away. Our sympathy goes out to this man's family, but his passing no longer necessitates protecting information that could jeopardize the governments case.

  • The Washington Post, The Bubble (How homeowners, speculators and Wall Street dealmakers rode a wave of easy money with crippling consequences.):
    In its hiring frenzy, the mortgage company turned a busboy into a loan officer whose income zoomed to six figures in a matter of months.

  • Nothing is Just One Thing, Friday, June 12, 2009:
    The initial decision to can me came…hell I don’ know. I got into my shared cubicle last week and found that the system wouldn’t let me log in. The IT folks just said that ‘it’s not our fault’ and to talk to my manager.

  • Nothing is Just One Thing, Sunday, June 14, 2009:
    Strategically, I think the government has lost control of this city. The vets are still out there, they just aren’t staying in large groups (these guys learned urban guerrilla tactics the hard way in Baghdad and Fallujah). Meanwhile, they’ve earned the help and respect of other groups who were harassing the Feds.

  • Tidewater Musings, I'd say they're morons, but that wouldn't be PC now, would it?
    I'd also say, Mr. Jarvis, that your call to reproduce an AP story is manure.
