Or so says the head of the FTC, the bureaucracy that brought you AOL-TimeWarner and Clear Channel communications.
Just because some spammers won’t abide by the proposed “do not spam” list doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing to do. Do we abolish speed limits just because every hick with a pickup ignores them? Not the last time I checked.
An appeals court in New Orleans halted execution of convicted murderer. Any excuse will do, apparently, to stop justice from being meted out. If you ask me, a guy who pulls a gun on the presiding judge in his murder trial has proven the state’s case against himself.

Success for one man in a fight against crime. The line “deputies said the shooting probably will be referred to a grand jury without charges” catches the eye, though.
A guy gets his car stolen, chases and shoots the thief, and gets brought before a grand jury? He ought to get a medal, not a trip downtown.
Recent polls of ordinary Americans indicate that there’s too much gayness being displayed in the media and in society at large.
