Never Mind

Who knew Emily Litella was a Federal Judge?

CNet reports Judge: Wikileaks gets its domain name back.

Essentially after being beaten about the head and shoulders for several hours by a mob of lawyers with rolled up copies of the Bill of Rights, the judge felt he may have been hasty in the ham-handed approach he took to the entire Wikileaks case and “erased” all of his orders and injunctions to avoid being thoroughly embarrassed by the guaranteed appeal to the Ninth Circuit.

The case isn’t over, but the judge’s foray into prior restraint most definitely is.

A Student Request

Received via e-mail:

The purpose of this survey is to examine how people think and feel about the political issues, parties, and candidates in the upcoming election. In the survey, you will be asked a series of questions about two political candidates, John McCain and Hillary Clinton. We are very interested in how individuals that find information on the web think about politics, and your participation would be greatly appreciated. In total, the survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. The survey is completely anonymous and you can skip any questions you do not wish to answer.

Click here to take the survey:


Please feel free to contact Chris Weber (crweber@notes.cc.sunysb.edu) at Stony Brook University with any questions or concerns. Thanks for your help!

As a former member of the masses in the State University of New York system I’m passing this along. Trying to get people to take surveys when you’re a graduate student [my assumption of Chris Weber’s status] is a major pain, but the difference between a grade and an incomplete. If you can find the time, take the survey.

At their request, the comments are shut down for this post, and they ask that you not discuss questions on the survey with others.

Sorry About That

Where’s the food?

[Editor: Back in November I incorrectly labeled this then kitten as Pavlov, when, in fact, she should be called Pavlova. The spinning when I came out should have been a clue. Even as a “teenager”, she still shows up whenever I open the back door hoping for an extra meal.]
