Bloggers getting sued

Blogger Faces Lawsuit Over Comments Posted by Readers
There have been few lawsuits involving blogs so far, but lawyers have said the area is fertile ground for legal actions because blogging is both increasingly popular and rife with opinions about companies and individuals. Earlier this year, Apple Computer Inc. sued a Harvard student in a California court, accusing him of publishing trade secrets on his blog, ThinkSecret.com, in violation of state law. That case is pending in Superior Court in Santa Clara, Calif.




Brits use tanks to blow apart Basra jail, rescue pair
So, British soldiers stormed an Iraq prison with tanks in order to rescue two Brits charged with shooting an Iraqi policeman. In the process, they broke down the prison's walls. Seems rational, right?
About 150 Iraqi prisoners fled as British commandos stormed inside and rescued the pair, said to be undercover commandos.

That's right. I'll give you the breakdown:
Brits in Iraq (allegedly) shoot a cop. Iraqis get mad, arrest Brits. More Brits, mad at the thought of their own getting jailed for (again, allegedly) killing a foreign police officer, blow to pieces the jail where their citizens- and 150 criminals- are being held. All escape.



Get yourself raped

Does anybody know how to say "Go fuck yourself" in Urdu, the official language of Pakistan? It should be moved to the forefront of common knowledge, I think, simply because of the Pakistan Prime Minister's most recent remarks concerning the gang-rape of a woman in 2002.

I wrote a piece on this very topic in June, in fact. I had hoped that the Canadian coverage of such a heinous crime across the globe would send messages rippling to the proper "authorities" [cough, cough] in Pakistan.

I was, of course, wrong.

The most recent article can be found here.

Apparently he thinks the whole thing was a sham to gain quicker passage to Canada. Apparently, also, we here away from the Land That Reason Forgot don't understand the situation in a strange and magical place like Pakistan.
"You must understand the environment in Pakistan. This has become a moneymaking concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped."

Seriously!? "Getting yourself raped" is the ideological kin to saying "Hey, you want sympathy for crimes committed against your people? Go through a holocaust." Amnesty International is asking for a public apology but obviously that won't cut it. Public apologies do nothing to remove private sentiment.

Hang the bastard. No, better yet, order him to be gang-raped. He deserves nothing less.


Yes, this is for you.

Botox being used for children with excessive drooling

Hahaha, I couldn't resist. Sorry I haven't written in a little while, I wasn't even sure anyone was looking at this.

But hey, I've been wrong about much worse things.
