Since you seem pretty familiar with this, what do you think about the

rationale
the Supreme Court used to close out the Florida recount?


My understanding is that the Court has usually deferred to state courts in
interpreting state constitutions. But here, they took the issue away from the
state court and basically declared Bush the winner.


The NYT and all the other news orgs who investigayed over the last two years
concluded that Bush would have won recounts in the areas Gore wanted recounted.
This issue is so sooo dead that anyone still carying on about it is just trying
to poison the well!

Can you source that?

Congresswoman Brown indicated that 16,000 of her constituents were not allowed
to vote at all, mooting recounts.

But I'd like you to provide a quote that the NYT said what you suggest.

date.
I may be wrong, but that's the way I remember it.


They called it "Inactive Reserve". My disharge shows 6 months if inactive
reserve and 18 days of active duty (I got a medal :0). Later on I got into much
more interesting "civilian" activities. But I can't tell you, you'd just laugh.

How much longer would the POWs have had to wait for
repatriation?


Recent interviews with former NVN government and military officers and the
publication of certain NVN documents reveal the U.S. anti-war effort actually
encouraged NVN to continue the conflict in hopes of getting the U.S. out of the
war entirely, including support for SVN. There is no doubt that had several
congressmen (most, but not all, democrats) not openly called for congress to
cut off *all* funding for the war in SE Asia, that the NVN would not have
walked out of Paris in December 1972.
