Virtual Constitutional Convention Starts Today!

ConventionUSA is the brainchild of Thomas Brennan – a retired judge from Michigan who believes deeply in the need to involve citizens in the process of Consitutional review and – potentially – change.  He conceived “Convention USA” as a virtual constitutional convention, organized along the lines of the original 1787 convention, i.e., each state has its own “delegation” and the proceedings will be conducted according to standard parliamentary procedure.   The convention has a prominent advisory committee, including such liberals as Prof. Lawrence Lessig, and conservatives like Prof. Kevin Gutzman.  Today the delegates hope to convene online to adopt rules and elect a Chairman.  I’ll post later with updates on how it goes.

  4. People with angina who take labetalol should not stop taking the drug suddenly; instead,
    they should gradually taper off use over a period of a
    week or two. The incidence of headache is increased in SLE patients and is
    considered by some to be one of the common manifestations of NP-SLE.
    What is unusual, however, is that the headache comes after a arrangement of irregular visual sensations.
