I'm SteveAudio. You've seen me around C&L before, John and Nicole have linked to me, and I've done a few Late Night Music Club posts, but now Mike has kindly thrown the Blog Roundup microphone and guitar to me this week, so 1, 2, 3, 4! The Port Townsend & Jefferson County Reader's editorial page writer wants to remind us about the Constitution (h/t Cookie Jill):

It took common people - farmers, brewers, printers, silversmiths - to write the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights some 218 years ago. And it looks as if it's up to the common people to try to defend those principles.

Scoobie Davis tells us that 2 of Rev. Moon's "Chosen People" are running for U.S. Congress. From Wampum we learn that D. Rumsfeld (remember him?) seems to be being charged "with ordering and authorizing torture." P.M. Carpenter says about the WaPo:

...journalistic tension at the Post now seems to have reached the farcical level of the Wall Street Journal's: its reporters report -- see above; "stories of horror" -- then its elite editorial corps settles back and repackages the horrible contemporaneities into the blandly tolerable.

And lastly, D-Day at Calitics tells us the newly revived Dirty Tricks campaign to steal 20 electoral votes here in CA:

...could be a violation of federal election law, which prohibits coordination between Presidential campaigns and separate ballot issues.

That music you hear means we're playing our break song. I'll be back tomorrow. Send any bloggy tips to steveaudio at earthlink dot net, with Blog Roundup as the title.

So long, we're here all week, don't forget to tip your server.

Can you help us out?
