Looks like Al got himself a brief delay.

Just when we were about to be treated to the spectacle of Alberto Gonzalez squirming his way through hours of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, trying to lie his way out of trouble for having lied to Congress (a federal crime), the shooting spree at Virginia Tech University reared its ugly head and demonstrated the necessity of the Assault Weapons Ban that was allowed to expire three years ago. So Gonzalez has gotten a brief delay, allowing him the opportunity to practice his false testimony a little more before committing more perjury before Congress.

I doubt there is any delay that will lessen the outrage at Gonzalez, whose tenure as Attorney General has been one of neglect, fascism, criminality and cronyism.
