Anti-rail lawsuit ruling

We have ourselves a ruling in the anti-rail "lawsuit" that was filed a few weeks ago.

A judge today denied a Richmond Avenue merchant's request to make Metropolitan Transit Authority officials testify about their light rail and Bus Rapid Transit plans, even though she had not yet filed a lawsuit against the agency.

Plaintiff Daphne Scarborough's attorney, Andy Taylor, said he will now file such a lawsuit -- which he had earlier described in state District Judge Levi Benton's court as "full-blown nuclear war."

"We're going to see this thing all the way to the Supreme Court," Taylor said.

Bring it on. There was no way that this crowd was ever going to stop short of a lawsuit, so this doesn't even count as a bump in the road. Let's settle this once and for all. More to come soon, I'm sure.

Bring it on

A quick review of W's "bring em on" reveals Gary North's thoughts:

President Bush's now famous "Bring 'em on" remark, daring Iraqi terrorists to attack American troops, is looking more and more like Jimmy Carter's "Trust me" and Richard Nixon's "I am not a crook."

Not that I necessarily agree with some of North's opinions, but the phrase "bring it on" would not be my phraseology choice du jour.

You are either for me or against me.
