"There are men, in all ages, who mean to exercise power usefully; but who mean to exercise it. They mean to govern well; but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters." Daniel Webster

Much like a cornhole contest, I'd never even heard of Jefferson's until recently. But it's apparently a regional chain, and a franchise opened in Summerville. So I tried it for lunch today. I got the barebecue platter. It's supposed to come with coleslaw, but somehow they were out of coleslaw by 11:30. I got baked beans and fries instead. The barbecue was good for a chain joint. The beans were excellent , and the fries were too salty. Portions were decent, as were the prices. The service was excellent. I'll probably try it again.

Ron Paul and Barney Frank introduce a bill to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level Explicitly based on the constitutional amendment that ended Prohibition, it would let states set their own marijuana policies and limit the federal government to fighting the smuggling of marijuana into those states that ban it.

I really hadn't followed the case that closely. But this column explains that Walmart requires managers to move to a new store from the one they are promoted out of and to work 50 to 60 hour weeks, things men are more willing to do than women. And that is how it discriminates.

We got a press release from the rec department today about the festivities they will be hosting on July 4. Along with live music and fireworks and kids rides, they will be holding a cornhole contest. I found that involves throwing a beanbag through a hole in a piece of wood.
