Servant of the Secret Fire

Random thoughts on books and life in the reality-based community

The name I've chosen comes from "Lord of the Rings," when Gandalf faces down the Balrog in the Mines of Moria. My Hebrew name is Esther (which is related to the word for "hidden" or "secret") Serafina (which means "burning"). This seems appropriate because although I don't usually put myself forward, I do care very passionately about a lot of things. Maybe through these blogs I can share some of these passions, as well as less weighty ideas and opinions, with others.

Shame on you, Senator Reid!

Reid admits Democrats can't block Alito

"Everyone knows there is not enough votes to support a filibuster," Reid said, referring to the procedural roadblock that some Democrats said should be used to put off a vote on Alito.
Whatever happened to “I have not yet begun to fight.” You haven’t begun, yet you’re already conceding defeat! Supposedly some Democrats don’t want to support a filibuster because they’re afraid they’ll “look bad.” (insert whine here) I hate to tell them that they can’t look much worse than they do right now.
