Tara Sue: "Junebug and I see each other in a small square room for our weekly 1 hour visitation." Sad. I don't know the facts of the case, but I do know that Tara loves her daughter.

John Cornyn's asinine remarks linking violence against judges with discontent over the judicial branch was the main subject of my MSNBC round-up. I reefered Matt Yglesias and Glenn Reynolds as participants in the much-deserved bipartisan reaming Cornyn is getting from bloggers.

UPDATE: Links to the segment here and here. Thanks for the video, fellas.

Scientific American April Fool's Day editorial: "In retrospect, this magazine's coverage of so-called evolution has been hideously one-sided....True, the theory of common descent through natural selection has been called the unifying concept for all of biology and one of the greatest scientific ideas of all time, but that was no excuse to be fanatics about it. Where were the answering articles presenting the powerful case for scientific creationism?"

Mickey McLean: "Say what you want about Matt Doherty, but he did recruit a talented group of kids to play at Carolina. And the fact that Roy Williams was able to mold them into National Champions in two short years is nothing short of amazing. But that really shouldn't surprise us since it was that formula—Doherty recruiting, Williams coaching—that led to such success for Kansas in the 1990s."

I love the Aughties...

In the last five years, three different ACC schools have won the NCAA championshipfour schools have sent teams to the Final Four; at least one ACC team has made the Final Four every year but one, with two conference teams playing on that last weekend in '01 and '04; and the league has filled more slots in the Final Four than any conference.

Let us then declare that the ACC, already demonstrably the best conference of the post-Wooden era (even as various other conferences have had their periods of glory and been better in given stretches), is the most successful conference of the first half of the present decade.

Thad Williamson: "But perhaps fittingly, what won the game for Carolina in the final three minutes was not a long McCants jumper or any other offensive exploit, but defense."

A good discussion about the effect of the web on traditional journalism in Justin Catanoso's journalism class at Wake Forest last night -- Jeff Smith of Smitty's Notes and I were the guests. Many in the class are considering careers in journalism or PR, they seemed to pay attention to the part about the unbundling of conventional media business models. Justin kindly front-loaded our part of the class so that I could make it back to GSO in time for the game.
