Suppose that we had a highly effective technology to remove a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus from a woman's body without damage to either, and with the ability to provide life support to carry it to term ex utero — i.e. that insemination is the first point of "viability".

Suppose further that under this technology, there is a bill to outlaw all abortion, but allowing women seeking an abortion to instead receive a removal per above, at the cost of the State and with no legal relationship to any resulting child — basically just "we take this out and raise it, you go on your way". At any point in term, for any reason, at any hospital. Would you support such a law, under such hypothetical scenario?

TSA update: I've asked the court to (a) tell TSA to actually talk to me before filing things that should have just been resolved, and (b) not make me respond pro se for issues of substance without so much as a courtesy copy of unpublished cites… especially since the case is in abeyance specifically so that I wouldn't have to do this without a lawyer.

One thing I note about the transgender law issues lately: unlike gay marriage early stages, it already has very clear support for trans people from a lot of the media and big companies (even e.g. the NRA). Considering that trans is a much tinier proportion of the population, I think that's a really good sign overall; I think culturally it's more like the late stages of the gay marriage issue, which is a massive improvement from how things were not long ago. Despite various insensitivities / messups on use of word etc, it seems like the underlying attitude is broadly supportive towards trans people, more than they were towards gay people a decade or two ago. (Perhaps in part because it doesn't have quite the same visceral squick factor as "ew assfucking".)

I wonder what it is about this particular song that is so conducive to filking. It's got an extremely catchy rhythym, strong rhymes, lyric heavy (not much chorus). Is that it? Something else? Anyway, it's good.

I <3  #FOIA  (and use it heavily). If you care about transparency in government, so should you. If you want info about what your government is up to… ask 'em to fork it over. (nfoic.org has a good list of state by state info.) Sadly, you can expect many agencies to outright violate the law until taken to court… but IME the smaller ones, especially California cities, are much better about such things.

It's a pity there are places in the world that I actually cannot go because there's a real concern of being punished or killed by the government for my existence or views. (Sadly, this includes Russia, where my parents are from. I once transited through Russia on a flight, and had to be careful to never actually enter the country in the process…)

Summary: it's really important to not suddenly mess with interfaces that people are routinized to, and allowing copyright/patent to an interface would make things really damn confusing because then everything would have to have its own slightly-different commands for no good reason. It's a rather good analogy. (Have I mentioned how much I hate software patents?)

Attached is an interesting article about how UK media skirt the boundaries of injunctions that prohibit them from saying, e.g. "celebrities X and Y had a threesome with Z".

And here's an article about how they got a legal threat for publishing that article, because it gives people a guide for how piece together the clues. Apparently under UK copyright law, you aren't allowed to just republish legal threats you receive in full, so they have to put snippets in all sorts of ways. 
http://popbitch.com/home/2016/04/14/the-letter-of-the-law/

Personally, I think both prohibitions are bullshit. General press gags — when not about libelous falsehoods — violate freedom of speech. So do laws that prevent you from posting in full a legal threat you've gotten.

However, I am presently in the UK. So apparently I'm also covered by this injunction against mentioning the identities of certain celebrities as having been in certain sex scandals, though I have never been served with such an order and am no party to the case. Apparently there are perils to being a citizen-journalist.

Here it is, though: 
http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2016/100.html

I have enough legal cases as it is, don't know UK/EU law, and don't wish to give the Queen's minions an excuse to revoke my visa… so this post has been self-censored to comply with that gag order.

I view such chilling effects on truthful public speech as reflective of an oppressive legal regime for the benefit of the rich, not a commitment to civil rights for all. I hope that UK voters will pressure their MPs to change it.___

Read the original (not linked in AP story): 
https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/2801130/Chicago-Police-Accountability-Task-Force-Report.pdf 

I certainly had low expectations of any report on the behavior of the Chicago PD, but I didn't expect quite this level of blunt honesty. Phrases like "no regard for the sanctity of life" don't often show up in reports like this. Neither does a recommendation that (essentially) the entire internal affairs division be sacked and replaced with outsiders, or that the police union and its contracts have in essence transformed the department into organized crime.

This is an official report, mind you, one commissioned by the mayor. Not simply some outside commentary by activists.

I wish that I could say that this seemed in any way inaccurate or unearned, but everything I have ever heard or seen of the Chicago PD makes this only seem more believable.

I honestly don't know how something of this scale can be fixed. Is it even possible for there to still be an honest cop anywhere in such a department? It's hard for me to imagine how you could survive as such for any length of time. (This is why I often say that good or bad cops are rare; what you see are good or bad departments.) But you can't replace nearly 12,000 officers overnight.

If you want to see just how low a police department can sink, here you go. 

(NB: This report is just about the Chicago PD, not about the surrounding Cook's County Sheriff's Department. There's presumably a whole separate pile of dirty laundry there. But it's the political infighting between those two, the AG, the mayor, and a few other players which is likely responsible for an actually honest report coming out) ___Read the original (not linked in AP story):

Interesting. Never heard of PPA before now. "[Joanne] Douglas has primary progressive aphasia (PPA)—a brain disorder that robs people of their language skills. Unlike other aphasias (language impairments) caused by trauma or stroke, PPA is degenerative: It gets worse, slowly and inexorably. But unlike other degenerative conditions, like Alzheimer’s dementia, it leaves most of a patient’s mental faculties untouched. People can still plan, reason, and multi-task. Their memories stay healthy and their personalities remain unchanged, at least at first.

But their blooming inability to write, read, speak, and comprehend can leave them locked inside their own heads, responsive but unable to respond, thoughtful but unable to share those thoughts. “It can be a truly devastating condition,” says Joseph Duffy from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. “It sucks our humanity, or whatmakes us un... more »

But their blooming inability to write, read, speak, and comprehend can leave them locked inside their own heads, responsive but unable to respond, thoughtful but unable to share those thoughts. “It can be a truly devastating condition,” says Joseph Duffy from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. “It sucks our humanity, or what makes us uniquely human, from us.
[...]
It’s as if she has a daily quota of words—currently around half an hour of talking time, and less for writing. The disorder has progressed to the point when she can’t “have a significant conversation and produce a piece of high-quality writing on the same day.” And once the quota depletes, speech becomes hard and sentences start to look strange. Then, she lapses into silence and puts away any text, allowing herself to rebuild her cognitive resources.

So, Douglas carefully prioritizes when and how to use up her quota. “I’m always looking for quality rather than quantity, making the absolute best use of what I have, and not frittering away my very precious coterie of words,” she tells me. “I try to store up my reserves of language so they’re available for optimum use when I want to. And I spend most of my time alone fairly quietly.”
[...]
“My goal is always to be grateful for the abilities I have and use them to the best of what I can,” Douglas tells me. “The diagnosis makes all the difference to how I can approach the disorder.””___

#TIL : 1. +YouTube upload on Chrome will happily use 100% of my upload bandwidth — functionally blocking all other network traffic because I can't get the minimal upload part of the connections.
2. Chrome's network inspection has a mostly-functional bandwidth throttling option (though it doesn't take immediate effect, seems to affect other tabs, and only takes kb, not kB or mB).

Filed an alternative means to get appointment of counsel (under the Rehab Act rather than IFP), to see if I can sidestep the issue of IFP affidavit privacy and get the case rolling sooner. Re-drafting the complaint… it's actually fairly complex. Fun times.

I've gotten to the point that listening to / watching the original nearly doesn't make me weep any more. I'm no long sure whether that's improvement, though.

Suppose that we had a highly effective technology to remove a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus from a woman's body without damage to either, and with the ability to provide life support to carry it to term ex utero — i.e. that insemination is the first point of "viability".

Suppose further that under this technology, there is a bill to outlaw all abortion, but allowing women seeking an abortion to instead receive a removal per above, at the cost of the State and with no legal relationship to any resulting child — basically just "we take this out and raise it, you go on your way". At any point in term, for any reason, at any hospital. Would you support such a law, under such hypothetical scenario?

tl;dr: Sibley was the DC Madam's lawyer. During the defense, they got a subpoena to identify her clients. They released it to ABC News for … some reason that I'm sure was totally justified legal strategy, and got slapped with a restraining order after threatening the US AG that he'd release it more broadly if the AG didn't disclose some info he was after.

Now he says it's relevant to the 2016 election. Attempted to file motion to amend the restraining order in D DC, wasn't even docketed (probably because he's currently disbarred in DC). Filed appeal 2016-03-09 to DC Cir. No. 16-3007, hasn't gotten a response. So he filed the above application for stay w/ CJ Roberts. He's threatening to release it all soon if he doesn't get a response.

Here's the thing he filed w/ SCOTUS:

Here's the DC Cir. petition he filed:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzmetJxi-p0VZ3loSnZVNlowUGc/view


Some added color:

1. He's been disbarred twice (in DC) for being vexatious & not paying
child support: https://www.dcbar.org/membership/discipline-results.cfm?barNumber=%26%2CK5%29%2A%5C%2B%24%0A

2. He previously sued to oust Obama (a) as not "natural born" because his father's not US citizen and (b) for forging his Hawaii birth certificate, and appealed to DC Cir & SCOTUS when that didn't get answered fast enough.

I'd bet that if he follows through, (a) it'll be be a nice big scandal again, and (b) he'll be facing another disbarment action.___
