a bit of perspective
We have a simulated written test tomorrow: three essays in the morning, and a performance exam after lunch. I'm supposed to be preparing, but there are so many more fun things to be looking at. While trying to get a bit of context in President Bush's commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence for obstruction of justice in the Valerie Plame leak, and comparing it to what happened with Oliver North (and the folks who were pardoned in Iran-Contra), I discovered that Wikipedia has an interesting list of federal-level scandals going back to the Declaration of Independence.
