Tuesday links

  • “The verdict that may shake Russia.” I damn well hope so. The only thing this guy’s guilty of is challenging authority.
  • Hey, this might work — being “too systemically important” to fail. Worth a try, anyhow.
  • A word that’s been crying out to be invented: screwflation.
  • Juries. They’re starting to rebel. (The good news is from Ellendra in a recent comment section.)
  • Hm. In this economy, people are still quitting their jobs with no new work lined up. The article tsk tsks. But it kinda makes sense — considering screwflation and all.
  • What kind of “justice” system sends somebody to prison for years on a “he said/she said”? (And even worse when there’s ample reason to think the “she” in question is a liar). Oh. The kind of “justice” system that gets its knickers in a knot when the subject is firearms. Thank heaven for New Hampshire neighbors.
  • And you thought the DEA was merely an evil nuisance when it came to drugs and freedom. Here’s a little mission creep for ya: They’re becoming an evil nuisance just like the CIA.
  • Those last two items were via Rational Review News — which now has a new URL and a spiffy new look. It also has [UPDATE: most of] the funds it needed for this quarter — which I’m thinking might be thanks to many of you.
  • Some of you guys might have seen this hysterical dog story on Joel’s blog weeks ago. But since every animal person I know keeps going back to it and laughing their heads off all over again, I thought it was worth another link. Enjoy.

… Because tomorrow we get serious. It’s [drums of doom] New Years resolution time [/drums of doom].

    I made a new year’s resolution about 10 years ago, and I’m still keeping it without any problems.

    What was it? No more new year’s resolutions!! LOL
