Texas man kills neighbor's house.

Sounds like premeditated homicide to me. Obviously, he was jonesin' for a shootin'. Chances are that he will not serve any time in that particular very conservative Texas county.

Yesterday I went to WholeFoods Market and found Rooibos tea for $3.78/20 bags!!! I'm in glorious heaven!
Just picked up and finished the text for my intro to law kinda class. Not too involved, but I managed to glean a bit of usefull information from it.

Not too much of a feat, seeing as it was only about 140 pages. At least I will have it out of the way when class starts Aug. 11. Now maybe I can get the motivation to finish the last half of the legal reasoning book by Delaney.

(unless, of course, I come across the middle book of the DragonLance Chronicles... bad habit to have as a 1L, I'm sure)

O.K. It's official. I joined the ranks of insanity today. I gave my 3 week notice. There goes a secure paycheck I've gown accustomed to for 4 years with this company. My wife has gotta love that. Seems logical. Trade it for three years of labor that I pay to attend. Sanity check please.

Video cams pointed at airline passengers at all times.

I'm SURE there will be some interesting footage there. As long as the tapes aren't copyrighted, they'll make perfect uploads! ;) (see yesterday's post)

I'm a little torn between wanting to make sure that flights are potentially safer and not wanting to know that some security guard is snickering at footage of me drooling during an in-flight nap. Although, I wouldn't mind downloading a clip of Arnold Schwarzenegger sleep slobbering. I think I could find the humor in that. Arnie upon being awakened by passenger with wet shoulder: "I vasn't trooling. Somevone bumped my Dasani!"

I suppose public flights are public domain, so I can understand the basis for doing this. It just seems a bit creepy.

This seems a bit severe to me. Up to 5 years and $250,000 for a $15 CD? Granted, more than one person will probably download the file, but for a first time offence, this seems over the edge. If it is true that, "It [the bill] criminalizes the placement of any copyright work on a computer network.", then you would need to keep a close eye on your computer if you are a part of a publicly accesed or P2P network.

Oh yeah, ya better not take a video cam into a movie theater either. Same penalty applies. I'm sure my point of view will be changed for me when school starts in 3 weeks.
