Chinese/American Summit



One of my meetings in DC was with Argbf, who spent the whole time slumped down against a wall and eating bamboo. It was odd, but apparently that is pretty much all she has done since winning the election. She had bamboo detritus all over her stomach, and at one point walked over to the corner of her office and pooped. Once again I found that politics is a world I do not understand, and which does not follow normal rules.

Well, maybe I understand it a little. Later today, I expect that there will be a fairly amazing announcement in an area I have been working on for a while-- something I did not think possible for many years. Stay tuned.

Update: Here's the news. Lanny Breuer of the Department of Justice today submitted testimony to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs, and stated very plainly that the DOJ now supports equalizing the powder/crack ratio in mandatory minimums and the guidelines. This is a huge change, and makes it very likely that legislation will pass making this change.

U.S.A.! U.S.A.! This democracy thing really does work.
