Ongoing discussions of America's two-tiered justice system and the collapse of the rule of law.

Today is a long travel day so I'm unfortunately able to post only these few brief notes about the ongoing book tour, along with one non-book bonus item:

(1) The Kindle version of my new book, With Liberty and Justice for Some, is now available to be ordered on Amazon; other electronic versions of the book are also now available.

(2) For those in San Francisco, I will be discussing the rule of law, American justice and other matters relating to the book at this event tomorrow evening (Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m., along with Salon Founder and CEO David Talbot, and there will be a substantial Q-and-A session (and book signing) afterward. The event is free and open to the public.

(3) For those in Los Angeles, I will be discussing the book tomorrow morning (10:00 a.m.) at the UCLA School of Law; the event is free and open to the public and information about it is here.

(4) today has published an excerpt of the book examining the reasons why Democrats and media stars were so eager to shield Bush crimes from all forms of investigations and accountability. It can be read here.

(5) From the New Yorker profile about the new New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, concerning Abramson's predecessor in that position:

The announcement was made in the third-floor newsroom on June 2nd. Bill Keller, standing with his wife and members of Abramson’s family, was beaming. With his square jaw, neatly parted gray hair, dark suit, and pocket kerchief, Keller on this day could have passed for what his father was, the chairman and C.E.O. of Chevron. 

That explains so very much about so many things. Isn't it just so very mystifying why Keller -- along with CNN's Erin Burnett, fiancée of a Citigroup executive -- find the Occupy protest moving so very boring?
