Judith Miller to address journalism group, receive award

LAS VEGAS New York Times reporter Judith Miller is getting an award and taking part in a journalism debate in Las Vegas today about whether reporters should be legally shielded from revealing confidential sources.

Miller recently spent 85 days in jail for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury.

She's due to receive a First Amendment award during a convention of the Society of Professional Journalists -- an organization with almost 10-thousand television, radio, print and student members nationwide.

S-P-J President Irwin Gratz says Miller's case highlights the need for a federal shield law. The Supreme Court has ruled the First Amendment doesn't protect reporters from grand jury subpoenas.

Miller's a key player in an investigation of how the name of covert C-I-A officer Valerie Plame was made public in July 2003.

Miller was freed from jail September 29th -- saying Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I- Lewis "Scooter" Libby, released her from her obligation to keep his name secret.

Odd confluence... Oppenheimer's remark after seeing the results of the first A-Bomb test.

"I have become death!" A moment of conscience.

Compare that to Rumsfeld who advocated bunker busting nukes (that's right, nukes) against al Quaeda and the Taliban to force 'em out of their caves.

Bush isn't even sufficiently aware of his own surroundings to (wet brain from alcohol and drugs?) have such a thought wander aimlessly through his mind.
