Where did the Americans get their Wacky Gun Laws?

Blackstone put it to paper


Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old –
This knight so bold –
And o’er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
“Shadow,” said he,
“Where can it be –
This land of Eldorado?”

“Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,”
The shade replied –
“If you seek for Eldorado!”

Silverchair, I Miss You

Such a great chair

Recently I acquired a new chair for my desk and it a surprise move the back rest fell off. Thinking back to my personal history of sitting, some fine chairs flowed through my thoughts. One chair radiated in this reverie, a silent star in many moving picture shows and a unbreakable terminal for my rear. The navy chair! I have explored becoming an importer of these chairs by buying a thousand of them from China and considered making one out of wood. Those ideas are terrible, I will buy one from a local shop instead, soon.

Today, Fools Day


My ears have endured relentless irritation and mind aches at the discussion of the Leveson Inquiry. It is grotesque that a trespass of personal privacy is met with a discourse on press regulation.

At first I thought that the UK lacked privacy laws. Reviewing the charges that the 29 individuals are facing in this scandal, it is clear that laws do exist regarding the expectation of privacy. They are just not enforced or prosecuted; of the 29 people charged, eight are charged with "conspiring to intercept communications without lawful authority". What makes the lack of conviction for this crime so frustrating is that it is especially easy to collect evidence to prosecute. The phone companies keep records of all calls for billing purposes.

Why would corporate council advise their clients to conduct the kind of information gathering they did? Why are these crimes not pursued by the Crown Prosecution Service? Is the expectation for privacy here flexible enough that if you do not change the password on your phone message from the default, a defendant would argue that you have left your property open for the scrutiny of the public? Why would the discourse focus on repulsive media outlets rather than the lack of protection offered by the state?

If it were possible for the news media in this nation to not behave as craven monsters, why is it still fine for people to listen to my messages?
