Today is a watershed moment in the history of Western civilization, if not planet Earth herself.
Firstly, the most exalted legal entity in the world's richest and most powerful country is re-convening at its usual time of year with a radically altered lineup. Gone is William "Stop The Vote" Rehnquist, replaced as Chief Justice by John "The White Cipher" Roberts. Soon to depart is Sandra "Day" O'Connor, possibly to be supplanted by Harriet "Disappointing, Depressing, and Demoralizing" Miers, who's never even held a judgeship.
And secondly, I've gone to work for Oprah*, wherein I mouth off about parenthood from a daddy's perspective and hopefully dispel the annoying stereotype that all fathers are fat-bellied, mouth-breathing troglodytes who give their wives power tools for Christmas.
Which will have a more cataclysmic effect on the history of humankind? Time will be the judge.
