Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) issued a short statement this afternoon urging his colleagues to "put aside partisanship" during the confirmation of Justice Stevens's replacement.
“Justice Stevens has made an historic contribution to the Supreme Court. He will be hard to replace. It is my hope that the Senate will put partisanship aside in the confirmation process," Specter said.

ABC set out to make pop more ridiculous and less pompous without being any less emotionally engaging
How'd they do?

Zoe Saldana wants to make one thing clear: She is not a girlie girl.
So much so, that she's not really surprised when someone thinks she might be gay...
"People have sometimes told my grandmother, 'Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her,'" Saldana says in the new issue of Siempre Mujer magazine. "It's that my sisters and I spent all our time among men. We were very popular with them. Our way of thinking is very masculine."
The 31-year-old Star Trek and Avatar star also says, despite her fashion-forward glamourista image, that she doesn't actually like getting dolled up. "If you want to punish me, send me to get a manicure or dress me in a skirt or shorts, and I would die," Saldana said. "But if you dress me in jeans and a button-down blouse, I feel very sexy, feminine and powerful."

Howard Jones was the best, but he was a weirdo. Or he was a weirdo, but he was the best...22 years ago.

My feeling is that the real “resurrection” of Jesus does not rely on whether he rose from the dead or not. I would think that the real “resurrection” occurs when Christians receive the teachings of Jesus within their hearts and minds. When a Christian really and truly receives the teachings of Jesus in one’s heart and mind, then Jesus truly “comes alive.” From a Buddhist perspective, isn’t that the real meaning of “resurrection?”
In the same manner, for Buddhists, when we receive the Buddha’s teachings in our hearts and minds, then the Buddha comes “alive” for us.
