for the most vital, most urgent, most inescapable reasons

...I have to link to Keith Olbermann's latest "special comment". If you've come here looking for my poem to Knucklehead, feel free to read the poem is beneath this post, please read it and revel in our joy. But for a cold dose of truth beyond the love of my life, check out what KO has to say about the death of habeus corpus. In a time of darkness, he seems to be the only voice of reason on major television. Hat tip, as usual, to Crooks and Liars. Take it, KO:

"And if you somehow think habeus corpus has somehow not been suspended for American citizens, but only for everybody else, ask yourself this: if you are pulled off the street tomorrow, and they call you an alien, or an undocumented immigrant, or an unlawful enemy combatant, exactly how are you going to convince them to give you a court hearing to prove you are not?! Do you think this attorney general is going to help you?!"
