Well, I was all set to write some light hearted stuff about Easter, but the story of Clarence Thomas and all the huge bribes he has taken while being a Justice on the Supreme Court broke. I can imagine that for a young person in this country right now there can be little more discouraging than to see the total disdain that Republicans hold for the rule of law. Yet they cynically still claim to be the party of the rule of law.
If there is to be any connection to Easter this year it would be that American can wake up (yes I said it) and realize how Republicans are perverting our laws and throw them all out.
Here are some cute little devils playing with their caretaker for Easter (40 seconds):
