What About Recreational Restroom Usage?

Yahoo tip-toes around the copyright laws Google belly-flopped into earlier this year, and digital music revenues triple those of 2004 (tell me again how P2P piracy is hurting the music industry?). When newspapers stop clogging up the bathroom faux-recliner, it appears, it won’t be long before CDs, books, and other hard-copy, physical forms of entertainment find their way lost in ...

I remember my father’s two-year transition into the world of respectability. He was promoted from beat-cop to detective. He quit smoking and drinking and bought some new suits.

Eminent Domain v. the Multitude of Internet Domain Names

I say, what’s really going on? Kelo v New London, the eminent domain case affirmed by the USSC in late June, allows local governments to force private property owners to sell land and businesses if the government feels it to be in the best interest of the community. Property rights aside, what will happen to mystery and imagination when Wal-Mart ... Read More »
