WASHINGTON - Some White House staff wrote e-mail messages about official business on Republican Party accounts, and some may have been wrongly deleted, the administration said on Wednesday in an embarrassing disclosure tied to the probe into the firing of eight U.S. attorneys.The White House said it could not rule out the possibility that some official e-mails relating to the firings had been deleted and are lost. [CG]it ... seems so appropriate. but hey ~ that kid on American Idol had a new hair-do and sang a latin song good!

For the reasons stated above, it is inappropriate for USADA to direct further testing of the B Samples. To produce reports from those B Samples, the LNDD would have to violate the WADA Code. I would order USADA to cease and desist from pursuing further testing of those samples. I would also rule that any reports from those B Samples would not be admissible as evidence in this case. The admission of evidence obtained in clear violation of the WADA Code smacks of an uneven application of the rules. To allow such conduct strips this adjudication of the appearance of fairness. [TBV quoting a concurrence and partial dissent from Christopher Campbell in the Floyd Landis arbitration]
FLandis will now have his B samples tested for artificial testosterone, even though the results will have no effect on the current arbitration. Poor fukker. If the results come up positive for artificial testosterone ... he will still get the current case thrown out because of the shitball chain of custody errors documented in the frenchy lab ... errors that should have disqualified the tests as valid to begin with.
But, if these B samples confirm artificial testosterone ... he's fucked in the public eye. He's done and he'll never compete again.
... i just don't know what else to say about that.

So I'm riding up Tunnel and I'm feeling so tired and I've convinced myself that I have mono or the flu and I'm trying to figure out ways to deduct more things on our taxes. Like maybe some church contributions or something, but then I think they probably have it written down somewhere that I don't even believe in god and I start to shiver and freeze and the wind is blowing me all over kingdom come.

“Publishing,” she said, “Now that’s pretty exciting.”
Yes, it would be, I thought , if it was true or if it was my plan. But it was a good line and people liked it and sometimes the more I said it, the more it seemed feasible. I mean the first step to anything was having a plan. Wasn’t that right? And sometimes in the middle of the night, lying on my dad’s couch I thought, why not go into publishing. Why not? And so I told myself that somewhere down the road, who knew when, or where, or how, or even, why, I would go into publishing. The plan had a lovely calming affect upon me. I stopped staring at the walls thinking how am I ever going to support myself, find enough money to live somewhere like a real adult. And then pretty soon, whenever I felt freaked out about my future, I just told myself I was going into publishing and I felt better immediately. [ED]
