I hope a very good lawyer represents Ariel Castro

I hope that Ariel Castro gets a highly competent and skilled advocate, who will zealously defend his rights, who will challenge every procedural step and every piece of evidence and how it was obtained. I hope that his case is heard by an impartial jury, and that he has a right to appeal any error made in his trial.

Or, if he pleads guilty, I hope he does so knowing that he has a right to a trial and fully understanding his options and likely consequences of that decision.

If he is convicted, I hope he is not subject to cruel and unusual punishment.

Any complaints about the "fascists" evacuating people in Ventura County?

Or is there an exception for dangerous circumstances not of human origin?

$4.2M... nice.

I hope due process is served

I hope any and all suspects voluntarily avail themselves of due process; I hope they are provided an attorney before making any statements to police; I hope they are provided with notice of the charges against them; a reasonable determination of bail or no bail; access to compulsory process for evidence and witnesses in their favor; I hope all the evidence against them is admissible, and that no in admissible evidence is used against them at trial; I hope they are tried by an impartial jury and a judge with a good grasp of procedure and basis for objections; I hope they are provided with an opportunity to appeal their verdicts and are provided with effective and competent counsel in that appeal; I hope they are not subjected to cruel and unusual punishment; I hope that they are not executed; I hope that study of them for years can provide us with useful diagnostic information.

Is "Black hat" and "white hat" a joke of some kind?

Could it be some play on so-called "black hat" and "white hat" perspectives of computer security?

Were they making an Easter egg sort of "joke" reference?

Paul Ryan narrowly misses bomb on 3rd lap of Marathon

Well-known ultra marathoner Congressman Paul Ryan, was just past the finish line on his third lap of the Boston Marathon this afternoon. Mr. Ryan was unharmed, although it is not clear from early reports whether it was his third or fourth lap of the day.

Joining him was former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin who was there for "this wonderful commemoration of Paul Revere running into town with his bells and guns to warn the British that the rebels were gonna come get 'em!"

Urgent : Does Miracle Whip go bad?

I urgently need an answer to that question.

Please, no joking, I will be relying on the consensus here.

We're talking about a quarter of a jar that's been hiding in the back of the refrigerator for, oh, maybe a year...or two.

Is there a way to tell if it has "gone bad"? Or does Miracle Whip not go bad, like Cool Whip or "cheese food" in a pressurized can or an unopened package. I mean, when did anyone ever eye a Lantz cracker sandwich and think, "That cheese must have gone bad by now." It does, after all, have "Miracle" in the name, right? Does it have a half life of, say, three years? Three thousand years?

And, if it has gone bad, will it hurt you? A test indicates that it has a slightly rancid taste, but is okay mixed with some garlic chili sauce (the Vietnamese stuff with the chicken on the label). So, forget what it tastes like, am I going to end up with some antibiotic resistant brain-eating bacteria while retching on the floor of the emergency room to get my stomach pumped?

Am I going to regret this?

Why do they call it an "oral argument" at the Supreme Court

After satisfying all their crazy rules on briefs, and listening to them go on about picayune little details, they should call it an anal argument.

Palin compares DC politics to "a bad reality TV show"

I don't know why I bothered watching the Palin CPAC speech, but the most breathtaking thing in it is where she compares politics to "a bad reality TV show".

Of course there is no end to the nonsense that issues from this person but, good golly, does she not have the slightest sense of self awareness whatsoever? She left a governorship specifically to do a reality TV show which was canned, and then her daughter did one that was canned (and which received taxpayer support through the Alaska state media promotion office).

A bad reality TV show? At least she stayed within her area of expertise there.
