The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Frederick Douglas and the 4th of July

Here is a blog post on a Frederick Douglas editorial from December 1872.  Reconstruction was coming to an end.  The American Civil War post-war period would not end for almost another hundred years.  Mr Douglas was writing in support of Senator Charles Sumner's Civil Rights Act.  Too bad it took so long to be passed.

The blog post notes:
Citizenship, Douglass was to say in his memoir, rested on the three boxes: “the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”
I would expect Mr Douglas would agree with the US Supreme Court's recent MacDonald decision.

Hat tip to the Instapundit.
